a quick and easy Version is for example

Zmin=Question ("Enter value for Zmin:")

an other Version would be to put Label's(for the description) and OEMDro's (for the values) to
your Screen and get the values via:

Zmin=GetOEMDro(1300) where 1300 is the dro number witch is used in Screen.

had a quick look to your Profile. only x-axis is set.

Dir Port1 Pin3 LowActive1
Step Port1 Pin4 LowActive1
Step/per 3850
Velocity 103.98
Accel 4

Dir Pulsewidth 0
Step Pulsewidth 0

These two should be set to 5 see reply#30 from reuelt

The home position is the "master tool" all tools are offset from there so it means you can replace any tool and reset the tool offsets for it and not have to worry about it messing with any other tool. As all tools are set to their respective diameters from the home position you do not usually need to alter the X value for your G54 (or other) offset. The Z G54 will need to be set for every different part you do but that is easy enough as you just call any tool you like, move it to the end of the stock and then zero the Z work offset. Doing that will mean every other tool will also now have their Z Zero work offset position as zero when they are touching the end of the material.

It works, I couldn't figure it out but once you try it, it makes sense, thanks Hood.

Next - my servo spindle drive seems odd.

At up to 2990 rpm in CS-Labs Pid tuning, it runs nicely with a low following error, about 1500 IIRC, at full speed of 3000 rpm I see a runaway following error - just carries on rising and would eventually trip an e-Pid fault on max following error i guess.

Its not serious, its only 10rpm lost but seems odd??

sounds like you have reached the 10V at 2990rpm.

after you do you probe z-axis dro must Show +9.96mm,
otherwise your PlateThickness is not stored in UserDRO(1151)

btw where (Screen) do you set your PlateThickness?

watched the Video several times, not sure what you mean.

it can be Encoder related, i think you are using Encoder Output from servo Controller?

how are Pn016 and Pn017 set?

Any ideas?

not realy, maybe use another free analog Output?

can not test this here, the IP/S does not Support spindle axis with analog out only step/dir.
