It is really good - you can easily add chamfers/arcs atc and once built you can change lines from arc to straight etc at the touch of a button. If this sort of front end was added to Lazyturn it would be a best seller.

SmoothStepper USB / SYIL UK + ESS = OMG
« on: January 21, 2014, 06:15:15 AM »
ESS cost $180 (£109) in the US. I contacted warp9yd and they explained that syil are the UK outlet.

Syil are charging an eye watering £175 ($287.35) + delivery  :o

That's a 37.36% price hike for the UK customer  - nice  >:(

General Mach Discussion / Wizards OD arc help
« on: January 20, 2014, 02:58:59 PM »
I tried the OD arc wizard and it gives me an arc in G03 code. On my denford easiturn (front tooling) it's the opposite of what i want. Can you force the OD arc to use G02 instead of G03. I have searched by cant find anything.

thanks

Third party software and hardware support forums. / Denford Quickturn 2D

Has anyone tried/used the above software? I tried the demo and for a lathe it seems brilliant! I produced the shape in the pic in about 30 seconds flat. Why other lathe oriented programs don't use this simple approach is beyond me!?!?!?!?

It also has a 3D model mode for showing the item in 3D - but quite honestly it's not needed.

The only problem with the demo mode is that it produces ZERO code so you can't determine whether it is ok or not for your purpose.

Anyone use it? Got examples?

Don't use but but want to sell license?

thanks

General Mach Discussion / Re: UC100 interference - Ethernet better?
« on: January 18, 2014, 01:40:17 PM »
Well Hood, it seems you may have indirectly found the problem.

I found another USB cable with the intention of cutting the shielding from it on one end. The cable I found was from a PS3 and as such had a moulded ferrite type fitting on the appliance end (opposite end from the PC) - before I cut into it I thought I'd just try it and the UC100 hasn't missed a beat since!!! So either a defective cable OR a substandard cable compared to the PS3 cable. I will try a few others and see!

Glad in a way though as it proves my wiring and shielding were working great.

thanks for the help again.

SmoothStepper USB / ESS and BOB questions
« on: January 18, 2014, 09:53:30 AM »
Hi, I have a Uniport v3 connected to Lpt port and for the most part works great, I like the relays etc etc. However wanting a bit more performance I bought a UC100 - this connects directly to the Uniport BOB and works transparently between them. Sadly my system hates the UC100 and it just drops out all the time.

I have looked at the ESS manual and it "seems" that the ESS will do exactly the same except obviously using Ethernet - is this correct?

If so - I'm in the UK, where can I buy one?

thanks

When you say cut away the shield from one end off the usb -- do you mean to cut it away and leave it disconnected or to ground it in some way?

thanks

" low voltage signal wires such as encoders or step/dir I have  differential and also shielded and properly grounded."

differential?
