having a script issue.
« on: February 11, 2006, 10:20:19 PM »
doing a little code to zero work z. program works fine when i single step through it but when i run it from a button, not so good. here is the
here is the code.

feed = getdro(18)
if suchsignal(22) then

code "g31 z-7 f35"     'seek the sensor fast
while ismoving()
wend

sensor = getoemdro(85)  'get machine z position
pull back = sensor +.1     'add .1 to machine z

code "g53 g01 z" & pullback   'move z upto clear sensor
while ismoving()
wend

nextmove = getoemdro(85)  ' get new machine z position
move = nextmove - .11       ' set up for next machine move

code "f1"
code "g31 z" & move   ' slow sensor seek
while ismoving()
wend

ofst = getoemdro(1001)   ' get sensor height
call setdro(2, ofst)           ' set work z dro to sensor height

code "f" & feed              ' reset feed rate

end if

end

ok here is the problem i  have.  when i step through the script using the editor i works great, just like i wanted it to. 

this line "call setdro(2, ofst)  sets the work dro to sensor height ,then from the mdi line i can type in g01 z0 and it will move the tool down to top of part.

when i run it from the auto zero button it won't set dro 2 to the right offset.

any ideas

thanks rob

I made a few changes to your code and I think it should fix you up... My test mill is down so I can't test it here:(
To get the PROBE data you need to do a GetVar(2000) = X 2001 = Y 2002 = Z
Hope that helps

feed = getdro(18)
if suchsignal(22) then

code "g31 z-7 f35"     'seek the sensor fast
while ismoving()
wend

sensor = getvar(1002) ' getoemdro(85)  'get machine z position //check this line
pull back = sensor +.1     'add .1 to machine z

code "g53 g01 z" & pullback   'move z upto clear sensor
while ismoving()
wend

nextmove = getoemdro(85)  ' get new machine z position
move = nextmove - .11       ' set up for next machine move

code "f1"
code "g31 z" & move   ' slow sensor seek
while ismoving()
wend

ofst = getoemdro(1001)   ' get sensor height
code"G4P.2" 'Pause to let Mach3 update //Added a line here
call setdro(2, ofst)           ' set work z dro to sensor height

code "f" & feed              ' reset feed rate

end if

end

when i put in the line
sensor = getvar(2002)

i get no value what so ever when i step through that kine of code.
 and i still have the problem of not geting the right data into DRO(2)
most the time it puts in 1.6********* and oemdro(1001) is set to 1.7055
even if i take out the
  ofst = getoemdro(1001)  and just put in
  call setdro(2,1.7055) it still wont work.

this is where my problem lies the program is working other than setting the dro to sensor height so that i can
take enter a g01 z0 and move my axis to top of part.  the program works great when i step through it.

sorry first line should read is
sensor = getvar(1002) not (2002)
had a typo while reposting and could not edit

Try adding a few G4's to the program. This can give some time for the dro's to update (only need a few micro sec).


  ofst = getoemdro(2002)
code "g4 p.5"  '<-- add this line and test it
While ismoving()
wend
  call setdro(2,1.7055)

thank you Brian the g4's them selves did not do any thing but the while wend statement after them did.
id there a pause statement or wait statement in the vb script.  i could not find any thing in the cypress pdf. unless
i over looked it.
any ways thank's again.
