General Mach Discussion / Re: Displaying Loop Number
« on: April 20, 2015, 04:42:40 AM »
Well I have had a look on the Wiki and couple of other places and I can't see any DRO that will display the loop number. Any one have any idea's?

92
The resolution I have setup is to set the step and dir to 1uS (down from 3uS) and this seems to have resolved the issue. Why? I don't know. I am still getting tool walk on cutting shapes with multiple cuts in z axis, however I think this is related to backlash, and resolution of stepping being set to full steps. I have  0.0083mm (0.000328")resolution and the the backlash is between 0.001" and 0.0013" , this however leaves me with a mismatch on compensation(division of resolution into backlash) and I believe this accumulates in multiple cuts around the periphery of a square for example. I also have discovered I may have a little play in the tool head and I will being trying to eliminate this today if it is the case. I will also try half steps to see if this will bring the accumulation error down further. And I will have a look at resonance issues BR549.

Thanks , I'll see if I can find it.

Hi BR549,
As it occurs at the corner this is where the backlash switches in after a 90 degree prior turn and the shuttle setting affects this point e.g. Cutting a square or rectangle etc etc. No micro stepping, only using full steps, and if the speed was an issue I would expect it at a high speed as opposed to a lower speed.

General Mach Discussion / Displaying Loop Number

Hi guys,
Just a simple query, is it possible to display to loop number as you work?
The reason I ask is I sometimes do work that en-tales loops upto 25 times and it would be good to know how far along the program is.

96
Hi TP, I have sent the accel. Up and down however as I change it I find I have to alter the shuttle numbers and if it's to low it appears worse.
Could you explain the dampners idea? Or should I just use google?

General Mach Discussion / Machine Missing Steps? Direction on Corners
« on: April 18, 2015, 12:55:34 AM »
Hi guys
This ones been bugging me for ages. My Machine, a mill conversion, is going backwards occasionally at corners. Only for a step or two and on the odd occasion like a wild untamed thing.
I have been experimenting with cv, and shuttle numbers with good results, and last night after thinking i had it, it burst onto the scene again.
Details
A HobbyPro CNC kit.
3 to 1 ratio on the drives to driven.
ball screws with oil groves milled on all surfaces
(I don't believe it is an issue with power/torque)
At high speeds(above 200 mm/min) it doesn't seem to worry it. Max is 700mm/Min
low speeds 50-100 really make it appear.
last night I altered the step pulse to 1uS from 3uS and it appears to have corrected it!

if i change the feed rate it appears to fix it or make it worse depending on where I change the Shuttle numbers or step Pulse width too.
Any ideas on removing this bug in my system would be greatly appreciated.
I have access to a CRO if anyone can suggest where to look if it may be a noise issue
This is my Profile File below if you want to check it.

Also if any one knows, how can you get the job path to reflect the actual directions of the machine. Mines about face.

Ok, before we start.... i seem to be having a brain fart.(been away from the machine working for 18Months).
The below code has to have the z axis increment as I machine through a piece of Aluminium
I have chased through my notes from over 8 years and for love nor money i cant remember how to add to the Z axis after each complete cycle.

Also if any one could advise, i am losing a couple of steps in random places while doing the radius cuts, any thoughts?

General Mach Discussion / How to work out auger flights
« on: August 11, 2013, 07:47:02 PM »
Hi guys, trying to find a formula on how to generate flights for screw augers so I can cut them out and not having any luck.
Does anybody now if there is a formula? And we're I can get my hands on it. I have been looking for months and nothing, currently I am using cut and try from .8mm sheet until I get it close and have found that the distance traveled along the screw to do 1 complete turn is close to the diameter to cut the inside radius, am I on the right track?
Hope some one can help, don't need Mach code just the formula, I can do the rest.
