Video P*r*o*b*i*n*g / Re: Mouse freezing on windows XP

Your CNC table is emitting EMI and the wireless mouse receiver is receiving the EMI noise signal with the mouse signals and getting confused, the mouse driver(s) are locking up.

General Mach Discussion / Re: Creating wizards

I'm glad to see you're starting out with an easy programming project. You have it figured out “enter diameter, shaft size, etc” as variables in stead of fixed value. Just  create the equations and functions with fixed values to  generate the code and then replace the fixed values in equations and functions with variables. The difficulty of a program can be calculated using the number of variables.
Difficulty = Number of Variables2
 4 = 22

Good luck.

Try this.

SetUserDRO(1008, 1.234) 'UserDRO(1008) = 1.234

Distance = GetUserDRO(1008)

Code "g90 G0 X" & distance & "A" & distance

'X and A move to 1.234

Are you making all the cuts accross the grain first and then with the grain too minimize chipping. The other thing to try is doing all the cutting in the wood end gain. Good luck.

All you need to do is add G94 in your first line of code for example "G18 G40 G49 G90 G94 G50 G80".
and G93 at the end before M30 line.

Delete the problem line below and you will find you still have  a problem in the remaining code.
(************** the following line always goes the wrong way whether I use G02 or G03)
G03 X 0.592 Z-0.129 I -0.041      (90 degree arc)

Did you write this code by hand?

I did not see any thing wrong with the code. If your using stepping motors can they support an F50 feed rate? The codes cutting arcs with F50 and G1 with F10, looks a little odd. Try F5 for the F10 & F50 and see if it works better.

its in the cloud.

Feature Requests / Re: Feed override for all axis motion commands

You can do what I think you’re talking about by pressing the Escape key while a G31 X4 F12 command is being executed. It also works in a probe macro with a G31. The axis move slows down and stops, like you pressed the “Feed Hold” in a G1 command move.

VB and the development of wizards / Re: XML file reader

It is easy. in the xlm file do a search for the variable name between < and >
then look for the same variable name between </ and >
the value is between the first and second finds.
For example OEMDRO131 = 4200 in string below.
