Mach4 General Discussion / Re: put userdata in register

If I understand you correctly:
The tonumber() method in Lua converts the value provided to it into a number. If this argument is a number or a convertible string, the tonumber() function returns the converted number. If it is not a number or a convertible string, it will return nil .

Mach4 General Discussion / Lathe Internal Taper
« on: May 19, 2023, 03:13:57 PM »
Are we ever going to get a functional version of the turn cycles?
Internal taper: 20 degrees
Xi 1.23
Zi -.748
Zf -1
A 20

Have tried the latest "stable" version, with both turn and facing options garbage code.
4********* dev version and latest 5125 build unable to show wizard3: wxLua: Expected a 'wxColour' for parameter 2 but got a nil.

Rant over

Which turn cycle are you trying?  When I use the Turning module from the Turn Cycles tab it works as expected.
Selecting from the wizard gets an error code of LUA version mismatch.

If your m6.mcs filename is M6.mcs try renaming with lowercase.  Also check to make sure that the macro is in the macros directory for the profile you are using.


Mach4 General Discussion / wizard version mismatch

Tried to load the Feeds and Sppeds wizard and got this error: version mismatch in precompiled chunk
Build 5306

Anyone know the process to fix this?



Mach4 General Discussion / Intermittant hesitations
« on: March 21, 2023, 04:16:18 PM »
I have Mach4, Pokeys57cnc and win 10.
I notice that occasionally during a standard g1 move that it will stop moving for ~500ms and then continue without a loss of steps or position.  My friend has 2 other machines running the same configuration and experiences the same behavior.  One of his machines is on the internet and other is not.
Any suggestions as to the cause and how to cure?

I almost never disagree with Craig!  But Bertho is correct on this one.  Quite dangerous. There was a thread on this when Mach4 first came out.  Mach should check to see if the main window has the focus.  If not then ignore it for Mach proper. 

PoKeys / Re: Relay on at start up

Maybe I'm misunderstanding you Graham.  I can't have Mach4 run a relay without a board and mach wont connect to the pokeys board unless it is already powered.
