should I reinstall
« on: March 04, 2010, 10:18:26 AM »
Hello

I'm having trouble with my G code display screen.  Although the Mach is going through each line of the G code, the display screen  is stopping in the middle and not showing that it is going through each line of G code. The problem is that about every 30 runs of the program, it is turning an output on at the wrong time resulting in my air cylinder getting smashed.  I have this Mach system set up to the same general configuration as another machine and I'm not experiencing this problem.  Is there something that maybe I do not have configured correctly?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks
josh

Cant think of anything it could be, maybe you could try lowering the lookahead to see if that helps.
Also have a look at CPU usage and see if thats abnormal.

I did change the lookahead from 20 to 1 and it still does the same thing?

Ctrl Alt Del all at the same time, will pop up the task manager and then go to performance tab.
