Hi I bought the 2010 screen set two days back. Have not heard anything since. I sent an email to the address as well....

Where so I download this from?

Been using screen set fine for months but now initial zero doesn't re touch the fixed plate at the reduced feed rate it just probes it once. I have had this happen before during tool changes but not on initial setup. Using the chinese macros.

First thing I'd try is replace the .xml file with a known good backup.

Sorry, I don't have an answer.
If it was working before, then something must have changed?

Does it never work with tool changes, or just sometimes?
I'd have to guess that it's an issue with the controller.

If the macros don't work correctly 100% of the time, then there's a problem somewhere.

Two Questions.... Z-Zero retract height and re-download
« Reply #606 on: September 01, 2020, 04:47:16 PM »
Going on 10 years, what a cool screenset!
I am setting up the screen-set on my new machine. Is there a place I can download the latest files? Past that, when I use the z zero functions, my head is retracting all the way to the top of the throw before coming back slowly for the more accurate measurement. Does the retract height relate to a setting somewhere in the mach settings?

Thanks!

I got it working woo woo!

Anywhere there was a call to GetVar:
Code: [Select]
ZNew = GetVar(2002)
I swapped it out for a Sleep and GetOEMDro
Code: [Select]
Sleep(250)
ZNew = GetOEMDro(802)

I have a full set of macros on my website for Chinese controllers that do not use the GetVar() function.

They don't work with all Chinese controllers, but they do work for many of them (I think).

I thought I was using the updated macros but it turns out I downloaded the Auto Zero G54 through G59 modified macros instead of the Modified Macros for Chinese Motion Controllers .

Good to go, thank again.
