The G84 button is on the list to do. You can already do it with a Bolt circle just input the 84.

I can do a button to insert the LOCK or UNLOCK into the saved gcode OR LIVE. AND make an auto insert function as well.

With this Wizard you have the option to run it LIVE or Save Gcode file (;-)

AND there will be a button to delete the last line of Gcode so you can erase the last line as many times as you wish to delete a function. It saves having to open the Editor and delete code.

I will LOOK at the threading but I am seriously out of room now (;-). I could expand it to 2 pages.

General Mach Discussion / Re: asynchronous M10/M11 alternative
« on: January 27, 2015, 12:10:44 PM »
Create 2 macros, if you wish call them M64/M65.

In the macro turn ON/OFF the Signal(output) that you want to change.

You can also use a PARAM call in the macro to use an outside Parameter call such as M64 P3 to specific what output you wish to change.

IF you need help with the macros just ask.

THE M10/11 macros were built for a very specific function (laser control) and are not included in the manual.

Thanks Steve , here is what I am working on. IT can be a Wizard OR a page on the screenset

Do you NEED the instantanious ON/OFF that the M10/11 gives ??

Or can you use a standard Mcode scripted to turn input on/off ?

When you call the M10/M11 include a phantom axis call  Such as B0 in the string. It should trigger it.

Just a thought, (;-) TP

Newfangled Mill Wizard / Re: Indexed drilling using 4th axis
« on: January 26, 2015, 02:35:32 PM »
You might want to download the Manual that decribes the Gcode functions to study.

 G81 Z-0.000  R0.250  F30      -- Start the drill cycle to drill the first hole at A0.000

G81 is the Drill cycle
Z-1.000  is the drill to depth value
R0.250 is the retract to position above the part. IT is done at rapid speed
F30  is the Feedrate of the drill cycle itself.

Yes you can create code to automate the process. This is a completely programmable drilling function for radial drilling in the 4th axis. Just change the basic values in the #vars to make it do what you want.

OR I can create a very simple WIZARD to do it all for you onscreen . It is a simple process if it makes it easier for you . You fill in the values, set up your machine start positions to start and press start and it will do the drilling for you.

G0 X0.000 Y0.000 Z5.00
G0 X1.000       (Move to start point of drilling)

(Program the Function)

#1 = 360        (degrees of the part)
#2= 55           (number of holes in part)
#3 = [#1/#2]   (degrees of each index)
#4 = [#1/#3]   ( Number of indexes)
#5 = -1.00        ( Drill to depth value)
#6 = 30            (drill cycle Feedrate)
#7 =81             ( Drill cycle selection)
#8 = 1.000        (Retract to part clearance)
#9 = .250          ( Peck value for drill cycle where needed G73 G83)

(Start the Function)

M98 P1 L#4        (call the Sub and loops )
G80 G64             (Cancel the drill cycle and reset CV mode)
M30                   (End of program file,rewind)

(Sub Program)
o1
G#7 Z#5 R#8  Q#9 F#6        (Drilling Function and advance to next position)
G91
G0 A#3                                ( advance Number of degrees)
G90
M99                             (return to Sub Call and repeat)

Art How about a HOT SWAP tool changer plugin that links to the Tool table and displays each tools picture as you select them. It would be used to setup and monitor the tool changer AND setup the tools to the changer. It can also be the soft LINK( comunications) to the TOOL changer it self. WHILE you are at it have it EXPORT the tooltable so it can be imported into the CAM side.

Just a thought,

G0 X0.000 Y0.000 A0.000 Z1.000  -- Move to the Work Origin of your part

G0 X1.000                        -- Move to the start point of the drilling

G1 G81 Z-0.000  R0.250  F30      -- Start the drill cycle to drill the first hole at A0.000

A 60                          -- Move to the next drill point at A60 and it repeats the drill cycle
A120                         -- Move to the next location, etc , etc
A180
A240
A300                        --  Last hole drilled at A300
 
G80                         -- Cancel  Drill Cycle
G64                         -- Makes SURE the cycle returns to CV mode (SOME DON"T


Another FASTER to complete style ( the A can move faster between cycles. IT will LOOP through the SUB 6 times  moving A 60 degrees each loop


G0 X0.000 Y0.000 A0.000 Z1.000
G0 X1.000

M98 P1 L6          --Sets up a SUB to call the routine  and will  loop 6 times
G80 G64            -- Return point for the SUB and it cancells the Drill cycle and resets to CV mode
M30

o001                                  -- SUB routine
G81 Z-0.5000 R0.250 F30     -- RUN Drill cycle for first hole at A0.000
G91                                   -- Change to INCREMENTAL MOVES
G0 A60                              -- Rotate the A at RAPID speed
G90                                  -- Change back to ABSOLUTE moves
M99                                  --END sub return to main program


Hope this Helps if not we can try it again.

HIYA Steve, (OT) do yo have a picture of your 4th doing a radial type drill opertaion? I am working to finish a new WIZARD for 4th axis drilling and am in need of a good picture to go on the page.

A static picture (setup) would be fine if it just showed a round object in the chuck and a drill in the spindle just above the object. I will trade you a copy of the wizard for the picture (;-) I have a new TURN version for drilling as well for lathes to do offset face drilling. Do you have a picture of that as well?

(;-) TP
