Hello Lee,
 Just hooked up controller and works real nice. :)
One question...
I would like to make the Right Thumb stick to Inc Jog the Z axis."If you want to Incremental jog the right Tumbstick then you have to
assign that to one of the buttons.
" How? I dont see it in the options.

 I am using version 2.83 of wizards and used the wizard with your inputs,and looks good here.
Seems i had a "ODD" shaped circle one time,and this is what fixed it.
Goto....Config> General Config>, and check to see you have Constant Velocity selected,Distance Mode is Absolute, and IJ mode is Inc.
Also when you run a Cut Circle make sure the CV Mode LED is on.

Hello all,
 Thought i would post my Mill set.Was going for a simple EASY on the eyes layout.Its kinda "plain jane" but works well here on our 3 axis Supermax Vertical Mill.

What is it doing or not doing? Tried it here at it worked for me.

Sorry, for just now responding but i didnt receive a email notifier,got it set to do it.
Anyhow,the reason to generate and store a Gcode, so if i have a small production run i dont have to re-enter the macro for every part.

MACH TOOL BOX / Mill line with Rad or Ang
« on: July 31, 2009, 01:14:33 PM »
 Here is one idea i have for a Mcode or macro,like the Bolt circle that pops up a window to fill in.
A macro to do a Line in X or Y and have a Radius or Angle at the end of the line.
(Iam probably going to explain this similar to the way a wizard works,a wizard to do this would be nice ;) please advise how a macro would handle this.)

Even a simplified version of this would be nice.

Questions widow would ask...
1)Cutter diameter & Tool # ?
2)Tool Offset Left,Right,Center
4)X start Y start
5)X end Y end
6)Radius or Angle
6B) (This question depends on what 6 was selected at)What degree and angle length, or what Radius and degree Radius will end
To make 6 easier Just a 45 degree angle and what length, and radius would be 90degree.
7) Depth of Z axis
8) Step depth of Z axis to come down until Z depth is reached.

I know there is a lot of  VB coding to make this happen, i just dont know how to do it :)
There is part of the can of beans u asked me to spill TP. ;)

Hello all,
Just found out about this toolbax and the use of these macros.
I put the edited code into a button and this is VERY nice!
Was wondering if there is a way to maybe...."edit" this macro and others, and have it post a Gcode somewhere?
Or maybe a way to save what you entered before. So when you push the macro button and window pops up, everything you entered before would be there.
Thanks again TP for telling me about this. :)

  Will the next Cut Circle, and any other mill operation that is similar, with new cutter comp in the next Rev of NFS, be able to Step Z down without having to come up,turn off comp,turn on comp,and then feed down to next depth of cut?
I dont see the need for all the extra moves and  tool comps, as i have edited the Gcode and eliminated all the moves and comps, and it works just fine.(Actually a lot faster)
Instead, Turn comp on at beginning , and then just keep feeding Z down after each pass,and leave comp ON till Cut Circle is finished.
I hope this can be put into next Rev,as it is a much more efficient way.
