cycle start g01 z0.000 error
« on: March 08, 2012, 10:02:34 AM »
After my spindle start line, my cam puts in the g01 z0.00 line.

All my Dro's are set to zero, when I hit cycle start it stops at this line and says it cannot complete this task.

My quick fix was to jog z to .001" then run program and it worked fine.

My gcode always has this line in there, this is first time this has happened.

Why would it do that?

A possible cause is that you have not declared a feed rate for the G01 move.

Try putting F600 before the G01 move.

this is typically what my programs start off with, and it's never had a problem before.

G00 G49 G40.1 G17 G80 G50 G90 G64
(.325 drill)
M6 T3
M03 S800
G01Z-0.050 F3

A little bit more info... the same program wouldn't start spindle... some error came up couldn't find m3 module or something like that.

i restarted mach... spindle then worked.... but then I got the go1 z0.00 cycle start error.

Try presetting your feedrate to something other than ZERO before you load the code. OR as Tweakie suggested put a F call at the start of the program BEFORE the G1

MACH must have a feedrate set before it can run a motion Gcode such as G1s or else you will get an error.

Just a thought, (;-) TP
