Pausing
« on: November 24, 2012, 01:50:57 PM »
I am probably doing it wrong but i pause using feed hold and when i hit cycle start again the bit took off in the wrong direction. How do you pause a program. (so you can move clamps ex:)

Do you have the toolpath rotated or offset?  I know when you rotate the coordinate system, cycle start after a feedhold does odd things.  I'm not sure if the same is true if an offset is applied.  I haven't tried it.

Not sure what you mean by tool path rotated or offset. My 0,0,0 was in the bottom left corner of my work piece. Y+ going away from me and X+ to the right Z+ going up

If you have called a G68 to rotate the coordinates, Feedhold/Cycle Start doesn't work properly.  Reverse Run and Run From Here also don't work as they should.  You can cancel a G68 by calling a G69.

Setting an offset by calling a G52 may also cause issues, but I've only tested with G68.
