Ray,

Did you always work with the 1024 screen?

Ray,

Dennis,

No, I used a completely custom screen set.  I also used a SmoothStepper - both USB and Ethernet.  We always suspected what I saw was some obscure communications issue between Mach3 and the SmoothStepper.  You're the only person besides me I've ever heard of who's had this problem.

Ray,
I just ran the cycle using the 1024 screen set and it misbehaved just the same.

My electronics man says we are unlikely to find the problem and we should just try and work around it.

However you can't beat a try.

There must be something in common between our two set ups.

Or should I just wait for Mach 4?

Dennis,
I know you say its random but how often does it happen? If Brett could get it to repeat on his computer I think he can hook up to Brians computer with the source code on it and Brian can see whats going on. I will see if Brett will chime in and hopefully something can be found.

Hood,
Thank your for your interest.
We reckon over the last couple of days it's about 1 in 4 times misbehaving.
However it is random so don't hold your breath whilst waiting.
I think I must have something in common with Ray's setup.
Is there anything else I can do to assist.
Ive just been reading about the Mach4 situation and realized that it isn't an option.

Regards
Dennis

I will get Brett to look in and  if he can get it to do it on his computer then I am sure Brian will find it.

Mach4 is not out yet, its getting closer but..... well everything gets closer ;D

Dennis, do me a favor and post you xml and the g code your running when it shows its head.  On second thought, copy and zip your entire mach 3 folder and send to me via email please.   I'm redoing the controls on my mill right now but I will do some testing as soon as I get it back together.  I hate you or anyone else is having this problem.  The random ones are the toughest to dig out.  What version of mach are you running?

;D If you could see the things I have in my head, you would be laughing too. ;D

It's a bit late now.
I will send it tomorrow.
