##### Mach4 General Discussion / Re: Mach4 + ESS CV tuning wizard problem
« on: December 04, 2018, 04:43:24 AM »
SEREGIUS,
Thanks for the information, I was curious as I have not seen any CNC go that quick.
Can you provide the Circle Diameters you want to cut so as I can provide and X/Y circle G-Code for you to test instead of the I/J and see if it makes any difference to the Circle shape.
Regards,
Mauri.

SEREGIUS,
What type motors are you using to drive X/Y axis CNC machine?
Are they rated to run at the 26,000mm/min F Speed you say you have tested?
What speed have your set the Mach4 configuration "Velocity Units/Min" on Motors 0 and 1?
What is your "Counts per unit"
Regards,
Mauri.

SEREGIUS,
You have to program the Circles to use X/Y not just transpose them.
I have run your G-Code under simulation and the Cut Path follows the G-Code Circle.
Have you checked that your X/Y that your Steps per MM in the Mach4 are correct by measuring distance traveled with a Slip Gauge and a good dial indicator?
I think this is your issue and not the Mach4 program.
Below are two examples 2 circle 1 is 100mm diameter and the other is 120mm.
100-120.txt is the X/Y circle cut.
100-120Arcs.txt is the I/J circle cut.
Regards,
Mauri.

SEREGIUS,
Try doing it with X/Y for the Circle in G-Code instead of I/J and see if it comes out correctly.

SEREGIUS,
Not sure what is going on.
I know Mach4 is not the issue as it works near perfect on our Mill with HiCON when making a circle.
I am waiting for ESS Backlash before I use my Router Table with Mach4.
If I have time, I will do a test on that Machine.
I need to fully set it up first.
Regards,
Mauri.

SEREGIUS,
If you have set a maximum speed of 500, then the CV speed of 1500 in your example posted is 3 times faster.
If you are using Backlash compensation on your ESS it does not work as they are still trying to fix it, so do not use it and try the circle again.

Mauri.

SEREGIUS,
Enter a maximum for the CV Feedrate of 1500 from Angle_0=1500 to Angle_24=1500 and see if it makes a difference.
I use HiCON and Mach4 V3804 and it cuts a circle fairly accurately.
Mach4 V3481 and V3804 both do a good circle and both of these two programs are rock solid.
Are you using R or I/J or X/Y in your G-Code?
What are you making to run your machine so fast?
Regards,
Mauri.

SEREGIUS,
On the CVFeedrate in machine.ini.
mcCvTuningWizardBeta3 produces high number in on the lower angles this causes issues with some CV output.
I automatically change the high numbers to a set lower value, so all the high values are reduced the same lower value.
This produces a lot better profiles down to 1mm lettering.
Give it a try.
Regards,
Mauri.

mkeveney,
Use the mcCvTurningWizardV3-3 BETA or any later version (it is located in the Wizard section and selected by WIZARD).
Depending on the type of machining select the appropriate Axis.
Use X/Y in the example you posted.
Use X/Y/Z in a 3D example.
Use X/Y/Z/A in a 4Axis example.
Select the Tolerance based on how good your CNC machine is (Accuracy including backlash) example .01mm.
Then process to update the Machine.ini.
I set a maximum CV Feed Rate of 150 on intricate 3D machining with .05mm TBN cutters.
Once you have the settings in place in Machine.ini (like example below) and CV is set to ON in Mach4, then you can test it by using Mach4 Simulation and view the profile verse the cut profile it they look close then you are good to go.
You can also test Lettering or Roadrunner in simulation.
You could automate all this if you do a little programing so you do not have to edit Machine.ini.
Regards,
Mauri.
