SmoothStepper USB / Homing Limit Warning Message
« on: January 05, 2015, 11:18:14 AM »
Using ESS Ethernet, Gecko 540 with Mach v0.62... when I use the ESS homing/limits I get a "Exceeded Soft Limit" warning on Mach after homing. Happens on X,Y & Z axis. Played with the ESS homing settings but still get the exceeded limits warning. If I uncheck "Use this configuration" on the ESS homing config page (reverting back to Mach homing routine) no warning message.

The ESS homing works ok except for the warning message.

Any ideas?

Newfangled Mill Wizard / Tool Path Still Not Displaying
« on: July 21, 2013, 08:18:39 PM »
Have the latest rev 1.0.6 and still having problems of the tooling path not displaying if any changes are made to the tool selection menu. Example: If the tool rpm is is changed to any number other than the default value the display will not generate a tool path. Just displays a small dot in the middle of the screen.

Actually changing ANY tool menu items... feed rate, rpm, plunge or selecting a different tool from the drop down menu will cause the no display problem. As long as you don't monkey with the default tool menu items the program works. This is the same problem rev 1.0.3 had....  so its still broken.

Seeing the Rev 1.0.6 is STILL DEFECTIVE:

1) Newfangled Solutions should remove the tool selection menu and just have manual input for RPM, Feed and Plunge.

Or A better option...

2) Don't purchase it until Newfangled Solutions can figure it out.

General Mach Discussion / Z Axis Creeping after Feed Hold
« on: March 11, 2013, 12:16:35 PM »
Pressing "Feed Hold" and jogging away to clear chips, I press the "Cycle Start" to resume and noticed the Z axis starts creeping (0.001" every 2 or 3 seconds) back to home position. No issues with the X or Y axis. I've duplicated this issue several times to verify. As long as I don't use Feed Hold everything works ok. Using Gerry's 2010 screenset, licensed V.066, Gecko 540 driver.  Any suggestions?
