General Mach Discussion / Re: 5th axis set up
« on: October 11, 2013, 05:25:20 AM »
from what I can tell Mach wont run more than 3 axis in the graphics window although the code should be correct assuming the machine parameters were set up in the cam package?, i.e. a revolving on x axis and b on y and assuming the +- is correct ?
   Does anyone know why the fanuk post ,produces code that skips a and uses b&c instead,is that so a axis is always differant from a trunnion setup?

General Mach Discussion / 5th axis set up
« on: October 10, 2013, 04:29:52 AM »
Hi,
   I am looking at setting up a 5th axis (table type) but cant find any info on setting the axis planes in mach.
whats happening is that when I program in my cam software the emulation looks perfect but when I import the G code into mach it looks weird,so im wondering whats going wrong?

General Mach Discussion / is this a known bug ?
« on: October 07, 2013, 03:57:45 AM »
hi, started up my machine the other day,(ver 066) and I found that when  programed with a G00 in a program or with midi, it didnt pick up either the velocity or acceleration settings and would attempt to go flat out from nothing,faulting the servos.However if you jogged it at rapid with the keyboard it did pick these settings up.
Caused quite a bit of head scratching untill I worked out what was going on. ??? shutting the program down and re starting it cured the problem I didnt need to re-boot the computer. I have noticed freaky servo faults in the past which are begining to make sence now.

   Also If I re-install mach will it overwrite all my settings and toolchanger files?

Regards

Just checked my g320x's re the torque trim pot.seems that the early 320 x's (3-4 years old)were more amps clockwise as the original 320/340 but there seems practically no difference where you position the pot on the recent ones (about a year old) although they do seem slightly stronger in the fully ccw position
  Is there any more info on this,can anyone confirm my findings?

General Mach Discussion / Re: unwanted creep in jog mode?
« on: March 20, 2013, 12:15:32 PM »
OK have been running the machine for a while now without the pendant and I still have the same problem,plus another potentonly lethal one happened the other day. I was jogging with the hand wheel and all 3 axis went off at about 300 mmpm until the servos faulted when the first axis hit the stop. Upon reset I couldnt do anything so I restarted and found that my config file was wiped?? luckly id got a back up,never had that happen before in 6 years of using mach, any ideas?
