CV Mode turns off by its self
« on: June 02, 2012, 11:27:10 AM »
Hello all, I have a problem with my CV Mode turning off on its own and I can't get it back on unless I relaunch Mach3. Not sure why it does this. It's not a big problem, just pauses around arcs.


Any help would be great :)

P.S. It's not in the program, since I can run the same program for days, then all of a sudden it does it (turns CV Mode off).

Are there any Canned drill cycles in your program ? Some will turn OFF the CV as part of the canned cycle but FAIL to turn it back on when done.

Just a thought, (;-) TP

I've had this happen - often.

Instead of a restart, I edit the program headder when it happens to add G64.

Bit of a pain, but I live with it ;-)

The funny thing I see when this happens is that the check box on the general config page gets unchecked as well.
I have just added a G64 to the beginning of all my programs that use G64.
We never have the time or money to do it right the first time, but we somehow manage to do it twice and then spend the money to get it right.
