Run From Here problem.
« on: March 26, 2012, 03:35:05 AM »
I have used 'Run From Here' before with Mach R3.034.056 without problems but not with such a long program as this one.

I stopped the machine last night - I used Feedhold at the end of this line then Stop then Goto Zero so the machine was zeroed for the re-start. This morning, I selected line number 216354 then 'Run From Here' - Mach only advances to line 147254 then triggers Reset without any message in the Status Bar. If I was to restart at this point in the code the Z depth should be -1.113 but the ‘Run From Here’ resets it to -1.4384 (too deep for that line).

Any ideas folks ??

I always scroll through the code to chose the line to start from, have you tried that?

Thanks Hood, I think that is the best way, that's what I will do in the future, thank you for your advice.

My 'work around' was to delete the first 216,354 lines (minus the header code) it had no choice but to continue from where it left off then.  ;D

It may not have helped Tweakie, was just saying the way I do it but I never run massive code like that so it may screw up that way as well. It would be interesting to know.

Hi Hood,

I didn't try all the combinations but 'Run From Here' does not work correctly with file sizes above 150,000 lines (or thereabouts).

I usually run the long (.stl to GCode) files in one go but this one took longer than estimated - still something learned for me - the job was salvaged and completed OK in the end.

Thanks for your help.

HIYA Tweakie do you have a copy of that  file I can use to test? AND where did you stop?

Did you have the watchdog running by chance?

Hi Terry,

File attached - I paused at the +Z move in line 216,354 and the watchog was disabled.
