Scott,

With your latest Plug-In, reverse axis seems to work fine.  Nice job!

Guess I'm the only one with problems still so I'm definitely doing something odd apparently.

Maybe one of you kind gentlemen would tell me how your saving your macros in sequence?

I had the 2 macros on my shuttle pro working just fine and for some reason, it will not execute them now after insatalling the new plug-in.

I have them saved as:

Touch plate = M70

Laser Crosshair = M71

Ref home = M72

And when I input the numbers above (without the "M"), it just shows on the status line in Mach that it has been executed but nothing happens with the machine.  ::)

Anybody have a clue?

One other question, have you guys actually used the reverse on the machine? When I reverse any axis, it's very "glitchy" and not smooth when going in the original direction.

Thanks,
Dave

   I have my macro saved as M650, M651, M652, etc of course on the plugin they are listed as 650, 651 etc.

Dave,

Very odd...  Sounds like you're doing it right, and it all works fine for me.  Does it work with the original plug-in?  If not, then something else has happened along the way.  Perhaps save off your XML and create a new one for a single axis, and see if that works?

Thanks for the info, fellas, I'll have to do some digging and see what has happened.

This is why I hate upgrading things..  :D

Ok, I'm making some headway here as I deleted the plugin and reinstalled all my macros with my backups (thank god for backup files) and all is great on the Macro area. All the macro functions are working as normal (Thank you Scott!!)

But! (there's always a but isn't there? lol!! )

On the outer ring, not the center silver dial, notice how it has seven "steps/increments" of jogging speed going each way? Here's what the issue is for me when using the new reverse axis function. I have written down my jog speeds for each increment for you to see exactly what is happening.

Normal mode working perfectly / Without the reverse function checked:

1) .34  2) .64  3) 1.61  4) 3.23  5) 8.06  6)16.09  7) 32.17


Now this is how it is WITH the reverse function enabled:

 1) .34  2) 0    3) 1.61  4)0       5) 8.06   6)0        7) 32.17

Notice how I get 0 IPMs for the 2, 4, and 6 increments?

Anyone else getting this?

Thanks,
Dave

Scott, thanks for looking into the rapid's acting as a toggle.
It happened after an upgrade a year ago or better, have the same on both my machines with two different shuttles.

Really appreciate the added macros.

Dave,

    My code doesnt touch the jog rate settings, it is hardcoded via Art as this line:
double dJogRates [] = {0.0, 0.01, 0.02, 0.05, 0.1, 0.25, 0.5, 1.0};

The code I put in is VERY simplistic, if you checked the reverse this or that axis then when your joggin that axis, the code just swaps the 0 or 1 in the jogging direction of the jog code on the "OnWheel()" fucntion

Wow, now that's weird, wonder what's causing that, as it happens on all 3 axis.

Dave,

You just seem to be jinxed.  It works fine for me, at all jog rates.
