I think you must have just missed one of the subtractions in the G2 G3 code, when running the code in my last post if I set my G54 Z to -78 and H3 to 50 it gives me a warning -78 -50 = -128 but I set my G54 Z to -77 and H3 to 50 its OK -77 -50 = -127 so I reckon you've just missed a minus or got one to many, Its only when using G2 or G3 codes though.

Cheers

Chris

Hi Chris:

 Can you elaborate on those numbers..where are you getting -70 from? I see the -77 etc.. But you keep using -70, and I dont see one..

Thanks

Sorry, not sure what I was doing. ???

I've edited the above.

I was basically trying to show you that it made sense why I was getting the softlimit warning, hopefully it makes more sense now with the right numbers.

Hi Chris:

 Thanks, I think I found it. I think I was subtracting when I shoudl have added. Complex beast in that section. Anyway, I think its fixed for next version..

Thanks,

Sorry to be a pain again but the softlimits are still
not working properly, I think you have double added
the tool offset this time.

When doing this code with G54 Z set at -50mm and H3 at
anything over 25mm I get a Z max softlimit warning, if
I set G54 Z to -100mm any value of H3 over 50mm I get
a Z max softlimit warning.

G21
G17G80G90
T3M6
G0G90G54X0.Y0.
G43H3Z10.
G1Z0.F222.8
G2X5.Y5R5.
M30

Hence me thinking you have double added, This again
only happens when there is a G2 or G3.

Oh yeah this is in Version R2.0.013 and R2.0.014

Thanks

Chris

:D :D :D I know I can't see how complex it is but I'm getting the impression, I didn't think there would be separate calcs for straight line moves and arc's for a start.

Just tried Version R2.0.017, I've not tried 15 or 16, I don't know what happend to them.

Err it seams to have gone back a step, any work offset below my Z minus softlimit will give me a softlimit warning no matter what tool offset I've got in and on the Z plus side I'm running on to the softlimits with no warnings.

This is happening whether I have G2/G3 in or not so maybe you've managed to sort that little problem out.

Cheers

Chris

Hi Chris:

  My applogies, Ive had some related trouble with the analysis of max and min travel, its a conversion thing from work to machien coordinates and zeroing.
The analysis actually uses the display so theres alot of interaction. Ill be back on it shortly, next version will hopefully kill it all..

Thanks

Any chance of killing it all, don't know if you've been working on it or not but the last 2 versions (R2.0.020 & R2.0.021) don't seam to be any different.

Cheers

Hi Chris:

 Actually, there is a difference, sorry I meant  to get back to you. On the diags page are three new DRO's that show the abs mins and maxs computed. Tell me what they say whgen you get the error. Also , resend me the file you were using, I have lost the original. I need to know how the min and max numbers shown relate to your machien coordinates.. IT seems to only happen in G43 moves, but Im stiull unclear exactly which ones..

Thanks
