loop function doesn't work properly
« on: September 21, 2006, 07:39:34 PM »
Sometimes I use loop function to pocket  rubber label moulds . Usually  there are 50 copy of the mould  on a A4 size magnesium  plate . With this way the  toolpath program  can be kept  smaller.  I use this function  because with the  10 mb of  toolpath program  mach3  gives  watchdog alarm. But  loop function is not user friendly.Let's say  I write  there  5  then I confirm with the enter then  start the cycle  but  if I pause or stop the  cycle for any reason   it turns again to  0 .  I don't know it is a bug or not.

Did you resolve the problem? I noticed there were no replies posted.
Sorry I can't help you, but I've kept coming back to the picture you posted and looking and thinking 'how has he got the corners so sharp on those pockets?' If there's 50 on an a4 sheet, that makes them tiny.

'fess up please. How is it done?
