X DRO changes after running lathe drill wizard?
« on: July 19, 2013, 10:36:10 AM »
Peck drilled some holes last night in the lathe using the wizard downloaded from http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic,16533.0.html  It worked well other than the X DRO would at some point display the X tool offset value of the tool in use & I noticed the change after it was finished.  I could re-type the tool number in the "Tool No." box and the X DRO would go back to +0.0000 as it should.

It freaked me out when I looked up & saw something other than +0.0000 in the DRO and I thought it had somehow re-positioned itself and could try to drill off center & crash.  Fortunately it hadn't physically changed position, just the DRO changed.  No biggie, just curious what's going on.

Would have to see the code and possibly also your xml and tool table.
Even then I may not see what is wrong ;D

Hi,
I suspect you have the same problem as I have - go to the General Config page and on the lower left there is a block regarding the actions after a M30. Uncheck the 'remove offsets on program end' tick box and voilá....well, worked for me anyway!

Thanks Simon, that was the problem.

Should've known anybody that could spell voilá correctly would have the answer!;D
