Hey Tweakie, 3 dec, places on the manual screen and the auto screen but when I press cycle it goes to 2 dec, places.
First off it would be nice to see the feed you asked for and second I am still having problems with the feed rate in inch/rev so I need to see when I ask for .015'/rev I only see .01
Thanks, Ray.
On an other topic, when I input in MDI g94 or g95 it switches with no problem but when I create a wizard that's in g94 I change it to g95 on the first line as a default like g20 g40 g90 etc I save it, load it and run it but it doesn't change to g95, if I put the g95 on the F line it changes, I have looked for info on how to make g95 modal on start up but can't find it.

Put G95 in the initialisation string on Diagnostics page.

Hi Ray,

It's all Daves's fault  ;D

Attached modified .lset file (I am no expert at this so hope it works OK).

Thanks guys I will try. As for the g95 /g94 If I edit the thread wizard in notepad and change the g94 to g95 on the top of the program it will not change, yet in MDI it does, so I have to change it in the diagnostics screen..

With a G95 in the code it should change as soon as you run the code, is it not doing that? And once changed it should stay that way unless you again call a G94 or restart Mach. However it is definitely better to have it in the initialisation string on General config as it will be changed as soon as you press Reset on starting Mach.

I will put it in the start up string because I would only use g95 but the stardard wizard put out g94  at the top of the program so I edit it to g95 but it doesn't change, its shows it in program. I can change back and forth in mdi, that's the least of my problems, going to try it again, god I can't be this rusty....

So you are saying it doesnt change when you actually run the code?

Now it works... the only i've done is purchase the licence for mach. G94 works good and feed rate looks good but g95 is over the place, first I run at .015"/rev it's fine the I played with the feed rate over ride up and down but it must be locked out because I can't see any change on the screen, run the wizard again and I get .004"/rev and can't change it, it's not me and it's not Mach3, I posted my threading test on DSPMc.
How do I change my wear offsets to go the logical way + larger - smaller.

To change the wear offsets to the opposite you need to modify the screenset to have two user DROs there instead of the wear DROs and then a Brain to do the inverting and writing to the correct DROs.
I helped someone out with  this a wee while back and should still have the Brain here, will look.
