Thanks, this is a really nice addition to mach3, speeds up so many things for me, kudos.

I do like screenset the more I use it, I just wish the probing feature woiuld work.

My problem is that I can't edge probe because the code does not back away far enough after initial contact to disconnect the probe tip.  I am using the standard electrical probe witha 1.8 inch tip.  I have gone in and messed witht he code a little bit and got a couple functions to work by reducing the D value for D/4 to D/2, but it doesn't work on all of the macros.  I have trued my probe tip as best I can on my drill press.  I can't get it the adjustment screws on my X2 mill to dial it in perfectly.

Is the a macro set that adjusts the probing back off or is there a line of code I need to cut and paste?  Also, is there a table that tells me which function is assigned to which macro?  Reassign button function inherent in Mach 3 doesn't work with 2010.

Thanks
Dan

Dan, are you the one that keeps emailing me about the probing?
If so, I reply the same day, and then get another email weeks later??

Edge probing works like this:

If you have a slow feed rate set, the probe should back away 1/4 the probe diameter, and then probe at the slower rate.
In the X+ direction, the back away move is this:
Code "G0 X" & XHit-ProbeD/4
You can change the ProbeD/4 to any numeric amount you want.
Code "G0 X" & XHit-0.5
will back up 0.5inches (or mm's).

If no slow probe feedrate is set, the probe will back up by the XY Clearance amount.

The second slow probe will back up to the position the probe was in when the operation started.

Here's the block of code where the above line occurs.

If FRate2=0 Then
      Code "G0 X" & XHit-Clearance
      While IsMoving()
      Wend
   Else
      Code "G0 X" & XHit-ProbeD/4
      While IsMoving()
      Wend
   End If


The manual lists the macros for each operation.

Thanks for the response.

Do I simply change probe speed?

I have never emailed you.  Sorry if my question pissed you off.

No not at all. Sorry if it seemed like it?

No, it's not the speed.
You probably need to replace the ProbeD/4 as I showed earlier in the post.

Actually, if the probe needs to move that far before it trips, you should technically be entering a larger tip diameter I think.

Kind of what I figured looking at the code.  I haven't written code in 10 years, and that was VB.  The macro index will help

Thanks

Is there anyway of getting the screen to expand to full screen without the feedrate DRO in the bottom of the screen that's outside the screenset it self?

It's the one highlighted in the bottom of the screen.

No, there isn't. Actually that Feedrate DRO can be removed, but there are other DRO's there, and off to the right, that are used by the macros.
And if you use Automatic Screen Enlarge, the screen may not be very clear, as all the text and graphics tend to get distorted.

Hmmm, I can't see the one to the right, only the one in the bottom. And no matter if I do Auto screen enlarge or not, they do not show up..

Oh, well it was operator error... :P

I forgot this monitor was running 1280 so when I set it to 1024 instead, then it worked as it shold.. The outside DRO's are no longer visible. :)
