Making a list of things that need fixed in Turn
« on: January 04, 2011, 06:28:36 AM »
Below is a list of the things I can think of that are needing sorted in Turn, would appreciate any others you know of.
Hood

Front/Rear Turrets

CSS

G83 (works in Mill but not Turn)

Current Tool DRO should show offset as well as tool number or another DRO should be made for Tool Offset.

Wear and Offset DROs should look at offset number to get which offset to update rather than Tool number

Tool Description label needs to look at offset number rather than tool number

Soft Limits need fixed

Until the G83 gets fixed for the lathe you can use the lathe drilling Macro done by Melee.
Here is the link and the file contains a description for using it. Can also drill multiple offset holes with it.

Rich,
 Dolphin will do it for me but the good thing about canned cycles is they are easy and quick to edit.

Another thing that needs sorted is Spindle Override.

Also would be good if FRO actually went to zero (Mill as well)

Also the G73 High Speed Peck Drill Canned Cycle.

Tool Path display.

Spindle Override..? What's wrong with it? Seems to work here...

Actually, none of the G81 to G89 canned cycles are implemented.

Also, G77 and G78 are not implemented, although appear in the manual.

OEM DRO 74 is switched off in Turn, its an easy fix for Brian to do as he has already done it for me but just wanting it in the list so it gets done in the next revision.

Tool Path display.

The toolpath should be getting updated in Rev4 but is there anything specific that is broken?

Get Threading fixed
it would be neat to have an easy way to "Pick up" a thread(s).

Threading, as far as I am aware, is fixed, do you know otherwise?.

Thread pickup would be a good addition but maybe  its best to hope that one day the broken things will get fixed before asking for new ;D

Hey would you mind doing a how to use/get threading in mach3?
I am not having happy day time here. got the index 1/rev, got it being seen in mach3....
it just seems on longer threads of 3-4 inches or longer that, the threads start not being uniform,
start to spread out so to speak.  I checked the Z, and it moves accurate (shop task), it keeps around 0.001"
per foot of travel.  I did look and try that other guys (in the member docs), for the lathe (Rich I think??), but,
my issue still exist. So, since it works for you, and works for Rich, then I am doing something wrong....

Are you using a recent revision of Mach?

Afraid threading always worked for me even when I was using the PP, I now use the SS and again it works great.

Only setting you need to make sure you have checked is use spindle feedback in sync moves, or something like that, its on the spindle setup page of ports and pins.

One other thing that I think I remember is if you use a VFD and it is compensating for spindle slowdown it may actually adversely affect threading as it may actually make the spindle go faster than the speed it started at. Dont think the driver can handle faster, slower yes but faster no.
