Newfangled Mill Wizard / So a PC failed
« on: August 06, 2018, 12:37:45 AM »
So if your PC that running mill wizard fails, you must buy a new license even though existing license is no longer in use?

If that's really the case - I'm done with artsoft. Mill Wizard is handy but barely worth the first $75. Certainly not worth doubling down.

Mach4 General Discussion / Another RefAllHome question
« on: September 12, 2017, 04:03:27 PM »
I'll start with the question - anybody have a 3 axis RefAll script that backs off switch before starting next axis? The script in properties points to coroutine.yield.

OK now some backstory - due to a failure had to totally rebuild my Bridgeport BOSS and replace the PC.

To start - tore out the OEM axis electrics and rebuilt using ESS / C62 bob / Gecko G203v drives. Home switches are NC in series - trips NO / NC relay for 5v board input when switch pushed. Table / Quill limits managed by soft limits.

Anyhow - during the RefAll sequence (2, 0, 1) - We contact Z+, the quill does not move away from switch, and home sequence continues with X.  Z limit still tripped so x,y not active. Not good, glad I left plenty of room to hit home by hand before tabe got there.

Been searching for answers - figure script is required to move quill / table off switches based on results but no real luck as to what that would look like.

Thanks
