Lathe threading wizard issue
« on: March 25, 2014, 03:01:32 PM »
When I try using the Lathe Threading Wizard on the new lathe, it won't let me change the X Start value.
It's currently stuck on 3. If I try changing it, it'll very briefly stay after hitting enter, but in the blink of an eye it changes back to 3.

It was stuck at 1 when I tried it a couple days ago, but yesterday it changed to 3.
I can change the relative values manually in the generated code, and it works how it should, so it seems to be an issue with the wizard.

Anybody got any idea what could be the problem?
I'm running .057 incase it makes any difference.

Sounds to me like you have the macropump or plugin which is constantly writing to DRO 1005.

B******s.

I think I setup the KFlop/Macropump to copy the current turret position to that DRO....just checked and I have. Or more precisely, the KFlop plugin by default uses the userDROs 1001 and upwards for transferring values from the KFlop to Mach.

The 3 would be explained by the fact that's where the threading tool is.

I'll stick to manually editting the G-code until I get a chance to rearrange what DROs are being used.
