General Mach Discussion / changing offsets and keeping z value?
« on: March 15, 2007, 03:29:33 PM »
Is it possible to change offsets and transfer the z value from the previous offset.  For example, if I'm in offset 25 and Z=1, I'd like to switch to offset 26 and have z =1 regardless of what value happens to be stored in offset 26 for Z.
Thanks

Are some DRO's Write protected?

Here is a section of my macropump:

sov=GetoemDRO (202)

If  (sov <= 9500) Then
   'set spindle speed to 9000 RPM
   ActivateSignal (output6)
   DeActivateSignal (output7)
   DeActivateSignal (output8)
   DeActivateSignal (output9)
   SetOEMDRO (39,9000)
   End If
   
If (sov > 9500) And (sov <= 10500) Then
   'set spindle speed to 10000 RPM
   DeActivateSignal (output6)
   ActivateSignal (output7)
   DeActivateSignal (output8)
   DeActivateSignal (output9)
   SetOEMDRO (39,10000)
   End If

Everthing is working fine except the SetOemDro command.  Any ideas?
Thanks

General Mach Discussion / feedhold problems
« on: September 09, 2006, 11:40:05 AM »
I'm having some issues with feedhold temporarily losing position and thus ruining parts.  I say temporarily because as soon as the file is finished, the machine will find it's start point(g0x0y0 ends up being right on the money after the file is done).  The toolpath display will show this position loss(a deviation from toolpath center by as much as .25"), and thus indicates where the machine is at also.  This helped me eliminate the controller/machine  and be able to reproduce the position loss while running offline and cycling through feedhold and start a few times to get this to happen.  This appears to be a random problem, though it happens more often than not(of course when I press feedhold is random).  I'm running Mach3's latest version 1.90.081. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. 

Thanks
Eugene

G-Code, CAD, and CAM discussions / Is there and easier way to comment.
« on: August 05, 2006, 11:53:11 AM »
I'm looking for an easier way to add comments/notes to my g-code other than enclosing the line in Parentathes.  I'm not a great typist and would like to know if there is a single stroke method such as a semi-colon, apostrophe, slash, dash,etc.
Thanks
Eugene
