My program won't run
« on: March 26, 2009, 05:58:54 PM »
I wrote up a simple program with my Kentech Kipware M software. It transfered onto my Mach3 screen easy enough. After setting offsets and zeroing, I figured I would just hit cycle start and go. I must be missing something, because all I get is a "Bad character used" message. The Kipware default is Fanuc. I think it must have something to do with a step I'm missing between writing program, and transferring it to Mach, but I'm new and don't know what to do. Thanks a lot for helping me with this.

Attach your code and someone will know what it is but the most common one is typing the letter O instead of a Zero 0

The manufacturer said that some codes in fanuc aren't compatable with Mach, like G28. This might be it. I'll see about posting the program here in a bit.

G28 is a valid Mach command.

This has been a long day. I tried to paste the program up here for all to view. Now I can't even do that because the files simply won't open. They load up in Mach, and come up on the screen, but I can't simply open them up through Adobe or view them to copy and paste. How do you guys show your programs?

You can attach it by using the additional options button on the reply page, you may have to rename it if someone has already attached a file with the same name.

I'll try it right now, but I'm not promising it will work.

I understand what you mean about the icons on the reply screen but i'm still not able to attach the code this way yet. Can I send you a pic of my code as it is on the Mach screen? I'm uploading the pics as we speak.

This is how you attach the files, once you clcik on the addition options button you will see as in the pic below, just click on choose and browse your drive to the location of the file and select it.

I tried to attach pics, don't think they went through though. I'll try somehow to attach the code some other way. Thanks.
