General Mach Discussion / Program A axis to rotate as a Spindle
« on: June 10, 2011, 03:57:02 PM »
hello Jacob
                i had a problem like the one you describe while threading. my fix was to drop the speed
                from 500 rpm to 100 rpm, i'm sure the computer i am using just can't keep up.
                     
                           just a thought, Mick.

CVI MachStdMill (MSM) / Re: G73/G83

Dave,
        my problem with g83 is solved, i'm useing two programs allmost identical appart from z depths, but one of them
        was missing the Q word , if a prog with the Qword in, it will load ok ,without it won't. the mpg error code will show.

        if however the Qword is edited from loaded prog, it will be loaded after editing,but shut msm down, then try to reload
        the mpg error code causes a crash .
 
        this is repeatable every time on my machine,the attachment is the prog that is to blame for my drink problem . ;D

            Mick.

Dave,
       The movement was on the run screen not the path screen, the dro's were not just updated,there was
        real movement of the axis.
           10*7 screen

thomsj,
          yesterday i spent about 3hrs creating a gcode program which was running perfectly last night,
          this morning loaded the same program and got an unrecoverable error,tried many times to load,
          the only way it would load was after i deleted the g83 at the begining of the line.
 
          Then i started to mess with changing to g73 at one stage the A AXIS started to move although
           there arn't any a axis moves anyywhere in the code,afer that i gave up and came indoors to try
           this laptop,in msm with g83 x0 y0 z-25 r5  dro's zero'd out i get y movement ! then z goes to -25
           and retracts to safe z, the peck distance is ignored.

           Load machmill and the line runs as it should.
                                                                   mick.

HI DAVE,
             Just been trying g73/g83 in msm but no joy, changed to standard screen set and all ok.
   
              using latest versions of both msm and mach,

               no smooth stepper.
                                              rgds Mick.

Dave,
        just noticed that the A axis dro's are being updated with Z axis co-ords on the path screen,
         the gcode prog i was running only uses x,y,z .

        MSM rel 10
        mach3 ver  43.022.
       By the way the A axis does'nt move only the dro's
                                                                             rgds Mick.

Dave,
       Played with probe for couple hours today,the only problem i found is with the x+ down and over .
       after starting  the sequence there is no z movement , the x axis moves to max x/y  then
       returns to start pos,stops with probing error.

       probing ver 0.63

mick.

Please ignore this post,     useing wrong probing version
