Steve THANK YOU  for fixing the axis DROs entry function. It works well now.

G28 /30 does work here It goes to the way point then back to 0,0,0. I just do not know the parameters to set for G30 P2-4 so I cannot test that part.

There is just NO g28.1

Just a thought, (;-) TP

HIYA Jeff, Probably not a big problem(though aggravating) for me as well BUT we are not the problem it is that red headed shop monkey that pushes the Big Green Button in the shop that it confuses beyond all means.

"I can't find the file that is the job package and I have been looking for 10 minutes for it. It must have just dissappeared POOFFFFF!"

Been there MANY times directing shop monkeys, (;-) TP

I created a Button to open and view the Gcode Manual using os.execute

os.execute ( "Notepad.exe C:\\Mach4Hobby\\Docs\\M4Manual.txt")

I could not get it to load the native PDF as I could not get "Fox it" to open/load the manual file so I converted the PDF back to a text. I up loaded the Manual Text file here IF anyone wants it

It is NICE to be able to edit the manual on the fly To correct anything I find that needs to be changed or added to.

I works VERY well   BUT , I did notice that if you are running Mach4 Gcode you cannot open the manual. If you do Mach4 looses focus and stops. When you close the Manual Mach4 then resumes running.

Is this to mean that Mach4 cannot multi task when running a program ??

Just a thought, (;-) TP

HIYA Jeff,

Just another case of you working for the machine instead of it working for you. (;-) With dedicated directories that the machine KNOWS where to go to or put things it is NEVER a problem to know where something is at. THere is no lost time wondering around in the desert trying to remember where something is at or where you were AT last time.

Like I said Les over at Sheetcam has it down to a science and it works exceptionaly well. Just like commercial controllers where every lost minute in the day cost you money.

AND IF we had dedicated directories it would not be a problem either AND it would MATCH how main stream controllers do it (;-) HOW does A Fanuc do it or Haas or Mazak?

Moving about just to find the correct directories is not an easy task on a control panel without a mouse. This is not working in sheetsheets or word processors or playinjg games it is a serious machine tool with dedicated tasks.

Just as a reference no other controller I use does it that way.

Just a thought, (;-) TP

HIYA Steve Please consider having the LOAD and edit program go to the proper directory that holds the files INStead of where you were last .

If I press load gcode  it should go directly to the Gcode Directory.

As a reference Les over at SheetCam has that down to a science. You can specify WHERE you want everything to go to Directory wise. Then when you select a task it takes you to the correct spot as the first option. AND that is how it works with the COmmercial controllers I have used.

If you have an offset in place for the A axis, G81 does have an issue.

The line should wrap in the G code window.  Does it not?  It does on mine but maybe there is something different about your machine.  So check it out and let me know.

Steve

HIYA Steve NO offsets in A here that I can find.

HIYA Steve, CANNED cyles

When testing canned cycles I ran into the old A axis moving again. Here is the test code. IF I program G81 when the Z axis moves SO DOES the A. ALSO the Q param does not work in G83/G73 it just just a very small mini peck no matter the Q setting.

Also Is there ANY way to display the ENTIRE active Gcode line ? In the below code when displayed the WIndow cuts off the line just after the Z call on the line with the G81 and you cannot see the rest of the parameters of the call in the window. Maybe a hothey like {F7} to make the entire line visable until you release the HotKey.  OR something else.
