Single Block while in a canned cycle
« on: April 29, 2010, 05:50:56 PM »
Could you please add a working single block feature to use with canned cycles.
Right now it only works if you use single block from the very start of the program, but it will not work proper if it is activated after a few holes are drilled.
If it is activated at this point then it just cancels the drill cycle and moves the tool to the next hole at whatever depth it is at and at the drilling feedrate.
I want to use mach for a large drilling machine and we use single block all the time with the current controller.

I asked about that problem twice and got no solution. Hope you have better results

It should be such a simple thing to fix.

I have got a half working version just with a VB script and mach pump using the ismoving function and then doing a feed hold when it gets to the top of the hole.
I am going to look at using brains to make this faster and work better though
