It sounds like you have something wrong with your threading setup. The wizard simply writes a line of code, then its up to Mach to run it.

Threading only works for a licensed version of mach- the demo will not thread.

Threading requires an index pulse, have you checked it on the diagnostics page. Note you need to rotate the spindle by hand because the LED only flashes on briefly once per rev.

There are some other threading suggestions in the general mach part of this forum.

One IMPORTANT request, there is no manual jogging via keyboard so I really want to push on this upgrade asap to have this wizard fully functional.

Hi Ron,
Have you had a chance to look at this?

Cheers

Hi Ron,
Reguarding Drill:
- Is the Dwell time just a default to a value of 1 or can one set it to different value somewhere?

- Seems like for Zend  values of less than -1 the Peck and Peck Retract do not provide the correct code for the cycles.

yes, the 1 sec dwell is built in to the program. I dont like to add to many DROs since it makes the input screens more complicated.

I dont see the problem with Zend values. Can yu give me an example?

Hi Ron
I am having trouble getting the wizard to work, I have taken the version number off the zipped file and unzipped it in turn addons, and i get a message that something is misssing, it also dosent show the author etc in the list?
I have the licence file in c/mach3 and the other NFS wizards are working
Thanks
Will

The folder structure should be  as follows.

TurnAddons
    NFSturn
        Bitmaps
          (many bit map files)
        ChangeLog.txt
        GcodeEnd.tap
        GcodeStart.tap
        Init.m1s
        NFSturn.set
        NFSturn.set.def
        Threads.txt

If this doesnt help please tell me what the error message says is missing.

Hi Ron
I checked and all the files are there, the message I got today when I tried to open the wizards was,
Error Triggered  ART Code 8877
Attempt Recovery
Yes - Nothing Happens
No - Mach closes and wants to send an error report.

Thanks
Will
