CVI MachStdMill (MSM) / Re: Edge Probing
« on: July 25, 2010, 11:30:40 AM »
Dave,
       Played with probe for couple hours today,the only problem i found is with the x+ down and over .
       after starting  the sequence there is no z movement , the x axis moves to max x/y  then
       returns to start pos,stops with probing error.

       probing ver 0.63

       Thanks for coming back,and now i am well and truly chastised :-[

      The new layouts and functions are very impressive,
      what little time iv'e had to play with MSM the only thing i'm not comfortable with, is the lack of feed control on run screen.
      my next step is to load MSM onto the workshop pc to try out probing,ect
      
      I'L save your kind offer to talk over the phone until  ! if ! when i get into more trouble.

      Thanks    Mick.

       i just uninstalled MSM, re- down loaded and re-installed both mach3 r3.043.010 and MSM,
       the screen loads ok, but the #expand errors are still there.

   the install instructions were followed to the letter.

my location is NOTTINGHAM ,UK.

   Dave, this installation is not urgent ,as this computer does'nt run any machinerey it's used to test before i transfer to workshop.

       yes your diagnosis was spot on, followed your instructions,and MSM loads the screen.

      however the expand error is still there. but is less annoying as the proud feeling of being 1st at something lingers.
thanks,
            mick.  ;D

b) Did you follow the process to make a new profile to run MSM (as given in the readme file)?
c) If so, which approach did you choose?
d) Did you add the MSM options to an existing profile or add your hardware config to a new profile made form the MSM master profile?
e) Does this happen every time you start mach with MSM (i.e. have you shut down mach and restarted to see if the error is reproducible? It should not happen at all, so I'm looking for possible patterns here).


Dave,
b )  yes i did follow the readme file.
c)   i cloned MSM to produce a new profile named mymachstdmill .
e)  yes every time, even after restarting mach.

another point when "mymachstdmill" loads the screen set is not there, i have to load it from c:\mach3\machstdmill\set files\

Ian,
     iv'e found the problem. all my fault, the actual profile on the desktop running the mill was mach3
     as soon as that was changed to mach3mill ,all is ok.
     The laptop i'm on line with also has the correct profile, but is not connected to anything.
      anyhow many thanks your guidence, and if can get results anything like the vidios,thanks for a super program.
                                                                            
                                                                                    regards mick.
