General Mach Discussion / Re: Version 3.042.003 Ready for testing.

Hi, Bill

There is another issue also, Goes back quite awhile.

If you load a file with larger Program Extents and then load a smaller file, The Program Extents don't update properly, Needing an additional Regen for a proper size view, Smaller to bigger works fine.

In 3.042.004, Looks like Program Extents is using/picking up the Arc in N200 G3  X0.2156  Y-0.0004  I0.2845  J-0.0004 in some way.

In Lathe Mode, The Stock Size with Front Tool Position selected, Isen't displaying properly eather.

Just little issues to deal with, Tool Path View is on a list for update, I Think !.

Hi, Hood

Spent some time on the phone, Think we have things "sorta" sorted out, First few step's on the ladder are pretty far apart, As you now.

Should be seeing more questions soon.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Ostie01

Set your "Step/Dir Pulses" to 5 in Motor Tuning, CP -,  CW -, to P-Port Gnd. and CP +,  CW + to Step, Direction pin's.

Set your Steps Per to 2000 , Velocity to 20, Accl to 5, for a Test, Have some similar to these.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, Skartalov

Loaded your file, Clean, Optimize, Set the short lines to a New layer "#2", Set Outer Box to New layer "#3".

Offset didn't work very well, So I set the text and short lines to .030 Depth and the box to .100.

You should be able to cut this with a engraving type tool, Pointy end cutter.

Hera's a G-code and .LCAM file to look at.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, Stingray67

You need to move all common "Depth Cut (Chan's)"  to a New Layer, Then Apply Depth's to each Layer.

Hi, Greg

Hears a Manual for your Drive, DZB 100 series, It's a little older than your exact drive DZB 100H0022H2DK.

Good to hear you got it going.

Thanks, Chip

You need to be careful some of those machines didn't have a proper "Grounding".

Your spindle motor control is a single phase to 3 phase, Variable Frequency Drive "VFD".

The Board on the door is a Brake Out Board "BOB".

Post the Part Number and other info on the motor control "VFD", I may have a Book on it in a PDF file.

If you live in the US, PM your Phone # (Click on my user name), I'll give you a call, Do you use Skype (Internet Phone)
