Cycle timer
« on: June 15, 2013, 11:50:11 AM »
On the program-run screen under the tool information area there is a timer that shows elapsed time. This timer resets to zero each time a tool is changed and cycle start is pressed. I would like the timer to keep running until the end of the program to record an elapsed cycle time for the entire program.  Is this possible?  Thanks.

Not what happens here - the timer doesn't get reset at tool change and does indicate the whole program run time.

Doesnt reset for me either, if you attach your xml I will test with it, also attach some code that it happens with in case there is something in the code that is triggering it and if you could zip your m6start and m6end macros and attach as well.
Few questions as well,
 What version of Mach are you using?
 Do you have any Brains or Macropump running?
 Are you using any plugins?

It is Version related, they were playing with the code to make it as Others wanted it to be. It changed several times through developement.

I'd like to have a second timer as well. The average time from program start to program start. That way you'd get an idea of the total time per part, including you sips of coffee, reloading, browsing forums while the machine sits etc.

Nice one Gary - A "Wasted" timer - I bet the boss would love to see on of those  ;D ;D
