Reverse RUN problem in second pass
« on: March 29, 2009, 09:09:02 AM »
Hi.
i'm using mach3 2.6 and have following problem.
loading plasma screen and write my own G-Code:
G00  X105.000000 Y5.000000
M3
G00 X100.000000 Y0.000000
G02 X100 Y200 R100
G02 X100 Y0 R100
M4


[START] code , then [PAUSE],[REVERSE] when returned to point A [STOP]
[START] again and then [PAUSE],[REVERSE] in reverse motion when passed from point A, jumped in previous line and G00 to X100,Y0 why this happened ?

also i tested with START,PAUSE,REVERSE,START... it worked correctly on first try on a segment but on second time it goes mad and tried to reverse next line of code!

is this bug or i'm just confused with my code!

Hi, I´m experiencing the same problem, first time I reverse run it works great but second it goes mad and make the circle outside the original, it never happens in G1 or G0
Is better keep quiet and looks like an Idiot rather than speak and clear any doubt

Same problem here. I have tested three versions(R3.041,R3.042.xx,R3.043.xx) and they all refuse to run reverse run for second time when current command is G02 or G03.

Does anyone have an answer for this? as I am sure many people have unhappy customers and damaged jobs because of this and we need an explanation why we replace an existing controller with a controller (Mach) which makes their life more difficult.

Probably best to email Andrew and get him to test it out and then I am sure Brian will have a look if the issue can be seen by Andrew.

Wanted to give you all a heads up, I have not tested this yet, but it is in my to do list. Hopefully next week now that things around here have calmed down.

Thanks for the patience ^_^

Any update on this please? I'm loathe to move from R3.042.020 for the gazillion reasons discussed in other threads but reverse run is very much a nice to have for plasma when the fire goes out.

Thanks

Ian

OK bit the bullet and upgraded to R3.042.022 and it's still broken. Pretty please?
