« on: June 30, 2006, 07:59:41 AM »
Hi Brian thanks for fast reply, ok how about work round this appears to work on screen test with 1.5mm over run
 
    Call SETUSERDRO( 1007,GETDRO( 0 ))' = X PROBE TRIP POINT
    Call SETUSERDRO( 1008,GETDRO( 1 ))'  = Y PROBE TRIP POINT
    DOOEMBUTTON( 1001 )' STOPPED BY FEEDHOLD

will over run be consistent or vary due to buffer load . my probe allows for about 2mm over travel if over run consistant this ok.
or if possible could i use stop in place of feedhold. as running servo drives and not running very fast. please note this is for a hybrid portable router cutting Kitchen worktop joints, cutter system needs to be fully automatic with little operator input, thereby reducing  errors. have been following Grex with much intrest will possibly use on next mc. any info on work round please.

Thanks Paul Strotten

Hi please can anyone help with G31, when reading Mach 3 user's guide it states that you must use " at least 1 axis word " ( page 10-20 ) & " after successful probing parameters 2000 to 2005 will record trip point " page 10-21.

say try this line   code " G31 X50 Y50 "   no movement  I assumed it would move towards X50 Y50 stop when probe trips, is this possible as i need to probe at angle

                       code " G31 X50 " ok

         Many Thanks Paul Strotten

Hi  Brian Thank you for your very fast response especially as its still breakfast time in the states. Unfortunately as a mechanical engineer new to CNC am finding VB scripting very hard to learn. I have downloaded your set Rotation. zip file from Yahoo site but don’t fully understand how to finish or implement it. Would be very grateful if someone could point me in right direction. Have spent many hours on line, reading up on this. Still long way to go. Changed  DRO 118 to display 4 dec places got that working ( that was easy bit ).

      Many Thanks Paul
