Hi, Radioactive

Do as "Hood" stated and then, With the 5 volt power on the Gecko, check power to encoder's, Check the A & B encoder pin's on the Gecko for on/Off 5 volt's while moving the motor shaft slowly.

If the A/B pulses are there, Swap the A/B wires around, You should be getting good at hitting the E-Stop by Now.  :D

Hope this Helps, Chip

Getting late again

Hi, Art

The one on bottom of page 96 "Test 1 A.dxf" is it for last few prev post's.

Well I think I've figured it out, Maybe, Whooo Noowssss.

With the cutoff Type tool, First Rough Pass seems fine,

2'nd Rough Pass is missing the Stock Clearance value's being added to the tool width, I'm thinking

If I double the Tool Width for 2'nd rough, Then there's material remaining for a 3'd finer pass.

Really think the Rough's should be all like the first one and LH undercut's that show up shouldn't be there for 2'nd & 3'rd rough.

The stock size is large to allow for exaggerated cut's for clarity Only. New dxf below.

Thanks, Chip

More info., See my previous post, page 96, Reply 959

Pic 1, Ruler value, Stock Clearance  error (pic 2 reply 959

Pic 2, RH stock removal missing for 2'nd pass. ?

Maybe even the Last final/rough should have the RH end cut. ?

You get 1000 word's for pic's  ???

Hi, Art

Pic 1, Overrun on LH side, Is it caused by Stock Clearance value not being subtracted from "Z" cut value properly. ?

Pic 2, LH Under Cut,  Stock Clearance should be around 1.5 on Scale/ruler in next post pic 1  ?

Pic 3, Looks Good except for issue caused by Stock Clearance in Pic2 ?

Dennis has cut some profile cut's with out much issue.

Hears the dxf I'm using, Maybe I'm Confused.

Edit: See my next post, page 97, Reply 960 and LH Under Cut issue.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Art

Yes, Different clearances used, See Pic's.

Edit: Also in this ver the multi-Finish/Rough pass is not working now as described on page 92 post 916, It was mostly working in last version, last pic.

But all in all it's Looking Good,  Very Good  :D

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Art

In my previous post, Is the Rough pass not subtracting the Stock Clearance value causing the Lt hand over run. ?

Also could it be the data is being read by Finish/Rough pass is in reverse order somehow and needs to be flipped. ?

Thanks for adjusting the split view function, It's a nice feature just slow with bigger files.

Hi, Lokey

I don't think so, Try setting your LowActives as shone in the first pic below, If that doesn't help, Set it up as shone in the sec & third pic's.

All of your Axis LowActives should be the same for Step & Direction State, All "Check" or "X", The only exception to this is if the axis controls are not the same type.

Edit: Also try the Sherline 1/2 step mode 4'th pic, It will increase the Pulse width and give your axis cont. more time to see the pulse's.

It's strange that it's only the X axis, Can you swap the axis cont. boards around to trouble-shoot it ?

Give us a better description of your setup.

Post your G code file.

Hi, Art

This is what I get with a Cutoff Type Tool, The Sim is working nice.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Art

Hears a couple small one's, Could you turn Off the auto split view after every "Cut" that's generated ?

When you change the Stock Diameter value the  Blue marker changes, But the value box freezes and doesn't reset till you click on Start Z or Set Z Offset marker and an "OK" fixes it.

Hi Art

I want to post some issue's I'm finding, But have never really asked you what format you'd prefer, MM, INCH, RAD, DIA, Modes ?

Just looking for what will Help the Most and cause less confusion & conversion.

Thanks, Chip
