Macro Error, Buffer Over Run
« on: September 24, 2009, 02:08:10 PM »
What does it mean when you get a status message, "Macro Error, Buffer Over Run".

It happens at about the same place when I am air cutting a file.

I should have included that when I get this message, the machine stops.

Mach Version R3.042.029.  There is no code.  The Status window has the message, "Macro Error, Buffer Over Run".  I do not have any Macro running but I have a GCode file running.  The GCode is a diagonal cut.

I am not sure I understand "Where does it fault?".  Mach stops working at the line of code it is currently been running.  I ran the same code 4 times and it stopped at 4 different spots.  It stops a little over half way through.

The code I was meaning is the code you are running, the G Code, if you attach it I will try and replicate it. Also please attach your xml.
 What I was meaning by "Where does it fault?" was in your first post you said it seemed to be at the same place in the code, but I see now its not an exact line.

Here is the G Code I was running.

I am looking for problems so I reset the speed to 6 IPM in mach so that every thing is running at a different speed then what is set when the G Code was generated.  

Do we know what Macro Error, Buffer Over Run means?

Thanks for your help.

Hood,

I am the guy that is having the chatter problem.  It was suggested that my computer might be causing the problem.  I did test another computer and I still had the problem.  I tested the same file on the person that let me use his computer and the file cut on his machine with no chatter problems.  The cut was smooth.   It has been suggested that I might have a problem with my wiring so I am testing things out.  I ran into the Macro Error and wanted to see what it indicates.

You have E-Stop set to Pin14, that is an OutPut, you need to sort that. Also you have both probe and THC set to pin 11, I have never had a plasma set up so I am not sure if that is the way its meant to be or not.

I also see you have the spindle set to outputs 2 and 1 and coolant to  4 and 3. You only have 2 and 4 enabled and 4 is using pin 14 which may be interfering with the E-Stop.
