Mach3Turn corrupting g-code after RESET is pressed
« on: February 19, 2009, 04:48:43 AM »
Hi!

I have installed the demo-version to test Mach3 and I have a strange problem in Mach3Turn.
If I start Mach3Turn and load a g-code file everything looks ok. I can hit regen and no problems. I can scroll throuh the g-code file, about 300 lines.

If I then press RESET and press regen, the g-code gets corrupted. If I scroll the g-code-window after line 150 everything i messed up and the last line(s) just keep repeating.

This problem only occurs when the puls-driver is installed. I have tried to reinstall the whole operating system. XPsp3. It is the same problem with different gcode-files. 150 lines ok.

It is probably due to it being the demo version, Mill is restricted to 500 lines and turn is 100 lines.

If it would be a license-problem, why only after pressing RESET? And why only if puls-driver installed?

All I can say is I dont have problems like that and have never had such problems however I have always had a licence.
Attach your code and I will check and see if anything happens here.

Here are a simple file. It is the same problem with all files.

Could it be that Mach3Turn have a limit of 150 instead of the 500 stated on download-page?

I'll have to buy it then... :)

Art told me Mach Turn has a limit of 100 but possibly he got it wrong and it is 150.
Just shorten your code to 100 or 150 lines and see if all goes well.

Bought a Mach3 licence today and now it works... if only the number 150 had been on the download page...

Thanks for the tip...
