Thanks for the info TP. I would have no idea of how to write a WIZZARD. Sounds like a good Idea. I'm going to be away for a few weeks and will check back to see how you're coming with your frontend macro. I have no idea of how that works either. I'd be interested in understanding that process. There's a few more things I need to add to my program like which side of the run pipe to offest the branch pipe. That could be function of which direction the "A" turns.

more later,
Tony

OK GUYS, The Tube Coping program has been setup in the MACH TOOL BOX section. There are 2 basic version 1 has a programable front end that asks the right questions and you fill in the blanks. You WILL need to set up the M1222 macro and place it in your macro directory.

The other you change the Gcode variable values before you start. It is setup for X/A motion at the present.

Have fun, (;-) TP

Look down near the bottom of the forum and you will see the Downloads section then there is a child board called Mach ToolBox.
