Ok simple step by step test, Here is the Mcode to run a SUB via M98..

The Mcode Runs AND the SUB(o5555) loads in Mach4  BUT it does not know to Cycle Start the sub to run. It just STOPS there and the Mcode ends (no error) IT does run teh last sequence of the Gocde line as it places the comment (StartMacro) in the comment line.   BUT it does not finish the next sequence in the Mcode.

Could the Mcode be fixed to RUN the SUB and then finish out the Mcode code?  If so "THAT" would be the CAT's MEOW

function m222()
    local inst = mc.mcGetInstance();
    mc.mcCntlSetLastError(inst, "m101");
  
    mc.mcCntlGcodeExecuteWait(inst, "M98 P5555 L1 \n (StartMacro) ");
      
    mc.mcCntlSetLastError(inst, "M222 Completed " );
    
end

if (mc.mcInEditor() == 1) then
    m222()
end

Steve Just out of curiosity and maybe to save some time (;-). IS IT possible to call a SUB/Macro (M98 or G65) from inside a Mcode ???

YEP I have a SUB/Macro that does Sequential SN, Engrave, Etc.

Was just playing to see what  Mach4 could do as Mcodes.

 Mcodes are simple just type in the MCODE #(M101) . Alot of users don't quite get the Subs/G65macro deal YET. BUT hopefully they will soon.

I was HOPING that Mach4 could call a SUB/Macro from inside the Mcode . THAT would make it very simple to create Mcode functions based on Sub/Macros code.

In mach3(yes I know) I had Mcodes for every little special function. Take 5/16x24 tapping. I have one that loads the tap and does the cycle where ever you are. Yes I do a LOT of one off tapping functions. That just made it easy to do on the fly.

I tried it in MACH4 BUT it will run from the editor (RUN) just fine but has NEVER ran from MACH4 MDI or Gcode call

Just have to order another LARGE truck full of rocks.

SCOTT, all my macros are in the proper folder and it still does that. IF the code is clean and good then no problem.

 BUT if there ARE errors DOWN the rabbit hole it goes.

HIYA Simpson, A lot of controllers have a version of the TLM even lower end controllers (FlashCut as just one example). In the Haas version you have a menu to select the type on wear function you plan to use for each tool .  Be in cut inches, #holes drilled # tapped holes,etc,etc.  

In the industrial scene you rarely cut much air (can't afford to) so to base it on cut time does work out well.  AND for the most part it IS part magic.  To work well you start with your TOOL manf recomendations as to tool life UNTIL you collect enough of your OWN data to make adjustments.

AND yes there are ones that use load parameters as well as heat sensors,rpm,chipload, etc. You can have whatever you want you just have to want/need it bad enough to pay for it(;-).

In the Haas version you can also spec out replacement tools in the ATC so when TOOL#1 gets to the service life it automatically switch over to use tool #101(same type tool) and carries on. I have seen machines that had tool changers to feed tool changers where the machine cut for weeks at a time .  

SO TLM is nothing new in the machining world. Heck I have a version that runs on a plasma machine to track consumables and it also gives out the average CO$T per CutTimeUnit of the electrode , nozzle.

You can ALSO use your CAM to help track CUT units. SheetCAm does a great job with that. It transfers the Cut data into Mach3 though the Gcode #vars and we pick it UP from there and process it as we please.

In TLM there ARE many options to play with.

HIYA Steve I tried your version and it tried to run 1 time and got to the 4th digit then stopped, crashed ,after about 30 seconds it cleared BUT would not run again.

No need to go further with it

Thanks for the TIME, (;-) TP

You may want to consider an OPTICAL tool setter instead of a CONTACT tool setter to use with those SMALL and fragile cutters.  

Yes Scott can set you up, (;-) TP

OK SO, M101 is the starting point of User Macros is there a upper limit of macros one can create?

The first example take the #var(6 digit serial Number) and WILL eventially engrave the full 6 digit serial number one digit at a time. After teh engraving the SN is incremented by 1 for teh next call.

The problem with it is it will ONLY run one time per session of MACH4 else it errors ou because it cannot find the #var value again it searches for something for about 20-30 seconds then ends with a 0 value for the #var then ends.

Tried your code here and it looks like a BUG. I fails the same way both in G21 or G20 mode. So it is NOT a metric thing.
