No the text editor does not have to be ON. BUT you may not have selected a text editor ???

Here all you do it PUSH the button and up pops Notepad with the history file loaded.

You will get ALL the messages that mach puts out during that session.

PUSH THE BUTTON then you will know(;-)

The history button brings up a list of all the old error messages that you see in the session you are using.

When you shut down mach the list clears and you start all over again.

That is not a problem in plasma. The torch always knows where it is at.  I think you need to work on your settings for the thc to keep from loosing steps.

Just a thought, (;-) TP

OK I just checked the Code for the SetRotation Wizard. It does NOT set the poijnt of rotation ONLY the rotion angle.

So you would have to go back and set a referrence point.

Now it is possible to modify the wizard to include the Reference point(first set point) as the point of rotation. AND 2 more Dros to input the correct values. That would allow it to set the reference point in MACH and rotate on that point.

You CAN set the point of rotation with a G68 call. I will Check the wizard to see what it is doing.

With the Wizard you don't tell Mach anything it records the point you are currently located at.  then when you move to the second point it does the same thing.

After the rotation is set then you would move to a known point and set that as the reference point.


NOW NOTE: The 2 reference marks on the part must be on the same plane as each other  OR you would have to add in that offset angle.  But normally lineup marks are created on the same plane to make things easy.

NO it does not have to be the rotation point. THe 2 points are just require to be able to calculate the rotation angle. Then you go back to the part Point of origin(X0Y0) and set it to X0Y0. THen you are ready to machine.

I would start with teh LH point frist then move to the RH point. Look at the picture in the Wizard it says a lot(;-)

OK first do you have your camera mounted???

You first need to LEARN to deal with offsets.THey are several ways to do it. Thesimple way is to use  fixture offsets.

You can read up on them in the manual.

The other ways to do it would be to use a G52 or a G92 or use the G10 offsetting to account for the offset of the camera . These also can be found in the manual.

Once you have offsetting down pat the Wizard can be used to auto rotate the part program in Mach.

Move to the rotaion point as veiwed with teh camera, press the button then move to the second reference point and align it in the camera and press the button again. The wizard will take the points and then rotate the part program based on the reference points.

Simple as that.

NOW NOTE: that once you rotate the part(G68mode) then MACH not longer JOGs in relation to the rotated part it still jogs in normal mode. BUT it will cut in rotated mode.

The wizards are there to provide you 1 way of doing a function. You woul deither work that function into how youdo things or change the wizard to do what you need or just develope a new way of doing what you want.

What you are wanting is very simple to do IF you understand the process. SO now would be a GOOD time to learn the processes involved. Then you can do what you need on the fly.

Mount the PCB. Move to the point of rotation. Then run the macro to do the actual rotation(G68) then move to the next point of refererence. The macro will then calculate the rotation angle and apply it to the G68 and the part is then rotated based on the 2 points. It could then even set the Point of origin based on the rotation point position.

It can be done many ways. You just have to develope 1 to work as you need it.

Hope that helps, (;-) TP
