Couple of questions if i may:

1) Can the shuttle buttons be made to increase and decrease spindle speed?

2) Can the direction of the wheel(s) in the middle be reverse for either axis? e.g I would like it so when I turned the wheel(s) anti clockwise the X axis (lathe). The bed came out towards me rather than moved away from me.

thanks

OK well it seems I need to report a major bug in Shuttle Pro.

The X-Axis is the wrong way around. e.g when using a manual handle on the x-axis CLOCKWISE winds the table away from the user. Yet on the Shuttle Pro, moving the jog wheel CLOCKWISE moves the table towards the user.

For myself moving from a manual machine it is counter-intuitive - there should at least be a toggle switch on the X-Axis.


PS is the code Open Source?

thanks

Hi,

1) yes you can setup the buttons to increase and decrease spindle speed.

2) no

this is not a  bug in the plugin. Your handle is setup reversed.
The standard is when turning the handle right ( CLOCKWISE ) the axis travels to the plus direction.

Thanks

1) Any idea how?

2) + direct or - direction.... on a lathe when you turn the x-axis cross slide handle clockwise the the table moves away from you. On the shuttle pro it moves towards me. OR are you saying my cnc system has the keys setup wrong?

thanks
again

1)
You can use two custom macros.

lets say M200  to decrease speed
and M201 to increase speed

Contend of M200 = DoOembutton(164)
Contend of M201 = DoOembutton(163)

you can setup the %  per step in general config


see pict.

2)
sorry that was a misunderstanding.
You a right of course, on a conventional late when you turn the handle cw the diameter becomes smaller
on CNC the standard is reversed. MPG turn right ( cw ) = diameter becomes greater

Brilliant  - thanks Alex.

Is the shuttle code open source by any chance?

"Is the shuttle code open source by any chance?"

Art Fenerty is the originator of the SP2 code, I just modified (added) some stuff to it. It would be up to him on that question.
I would think though, if your using it to make money with or modify to a product your selling that you should give
some kind of fee to "ArtSoft" per use or sale of a product based on this. Art put A LOT of time in this thing, I added some time,
but mine was just standing on the shoulders of a Giant.

You could also ask Brian (and he could ask Art), about how they want to handle that situation. For my part that I added/modified, it is open source which is only a very small part of the entire plugin.
