General Mach Discussion / Re: DRO error in mm
« on: May 25, 2009, 02:14:32 AM »
You just demonstrated why the US was not able to switch to metric. Instead of just switching we kept trying to convert inches to metric and getting nonsense numbers. The only industry that came close to making the switch is the beverage companies with the two liter pop containers.

You could try using the center tap and one end of each coil to gain some speed.

See if some of the settings in this file help.

This will also happen if you use a G92 as the actual tool movement will be offset by the difference between the original tool zero and the new tool zero.

I use IF, THEN, WHILE & GOTO by putting then in VB in a macro.

In line N23 you are calling Hzero, you should be calling H4.

Again, once the script completes, the DRO values are reset as follows:
The X axis DRO is changed to +0.6105 (this number does vary slightly on occasion)
The Y axis DRO is changed to +0.0000
The Z axis DRO is changed to +0.4000</quote>



Where those numbers are coming from is a real puzzle. Every way that I could think of using
SetDro(0,0.0)
SetDro(1,0.0)
SetDro(2,0.0)
SetDro(3,0.0)
always gave me zeros. Are you set up in inches or millimeters?

Freddy,
I think you would get more help on the two links I gave you that deal with NC POD.
