HIYA GUYS,G60 doe not seem to work correctly. The #param does not work and the toolpath seems a bit strange for a G60 as I remember it. 

The toolpaths are not consistant with the Gcode intent.  The toolpaths should still follow the Gcode intent from point to point THEN correct for Backlash and proceed.

Just a thought, (;-) TP

Terry that makes perfect sense for the up down button script choices.
but, why not just make it a momentary action option button

Thanks

Because then you have to define momentary, 1sec 10sec 100sec ? this way You define momentary by holding down on the button as long as required.

No what I ment was that the button was only active while in the down position.
so button state is always 0 (off) unless pressed and held... that would create a state of 1 (on)
Then Id make all them Blue or Yellow for consistency
and if that function was being called in a program (air on) the button would change color as a visual feed back.
just a PLC script addition

Dont want to have to write scripts for a button down and a button up but if I have too.

your defining a ON or Off delay action depending on how the output is handled from the button press

There is a problem in this thread milling routine it blows mach4 up and currupts the corrd base.  when it gets to the First G03 call is when it happens. The XYZ values ALL goes from 0,0 to 6937.00000 something in both machine and user coords. Program locks up. AND yes it does it with or without the L5 call @N010

hi All
When running Mach 4 mill using G95 (which I often do in Mach 3) it does not display in cuts per rev, is there a simple way round this?

Terry,

the line repeat word (Lnn) is only active in subs, macros and canned cycles at the moment, it is on the list of to do's.

HI Graham, I figured that and it was not the problem the problem occured at the first G03 on line N9.

There is but you need spindle feed back and Simulation in Mach4 has not got this, if you look at the YouTube video Brian and I did over Christmas that show CSS being tested, this was using G95 with G96.
