Try Climb Milling and mist with kero/oil mix. In the old days we used lard and kerosene for machining Aluminium. The climb milling gets rid of the chip and the rubbing action of conventional milling, however you need to eliminate as much as possible the backlash.

Hi Guys,
After mucking around with a few wizards, I decided to make my own. ;D

This wizard will get inside centres and outside centres for spigots in ellipse, rectangle, square or regular polygons.

The help file is pretty self explanatory.

This only a beta version so feedback is appreciated.

Usual thing, unzip it to your c:\Mach3\Addons folder


This is from the Cypress FAQ section
Can I reference variables in my applications? Cypress Enables sports a well designed powerful API that allows global variables to be referenced directly or to be set and the values retrieved as needed.

My understanding / interpretation on this would be that a Global  can be set then called later, however it shouldn't persist on shutdown unless the variable is stored in a DLL or exe variable. I.e. A DRO.

Ouch. ;-) , I'll do some research.

Just as a heads up, if you declare a variable as a global or Public (Static x as Double or Public x as Double)it will exist outside of a procedure(macro), any variable declared (Dim x as Double) inside a sub will always only exist within the sub. This is Visual Basic std operating procedure, so I would assume( is this going to make an ASS of U and ME ;-) ) it would stand true with Cypress as well.
' Your code here
Public x as double
' exists everywhere
' Your code here
Dim x as Double
' Only exists here
End Sub

So what I did was altered the button code slightly to take the hole diameter from the first page and add 20% to it , if there was no Diameter it will set it to 8mm(4mm Travel in all directions) and pop up an information message advising of such.
The 20% should allow you to have the probe near to centre! If some one from NFS wants to contact me I'll send through the altered screenset and they can chuck, change or use it if they want.
And yes I have buggered a probe or two over the years TP, usually from not raising the Z axis after probing:-)

No, the probe section is the one I'm  using. The one on the left hand side.

Im using CopyCat 1.10, and i just opened it in MachScreen to view the macro on the start button. definitely not locked that I can see. If this is an issue I will contact German Bravo or NFS direct I guess. I have played with it and have it working with Mods, however I never post without getting Designers OK beforehand, and always after they have checked it is up to there standards.
