Well with us older forgetfull dudes it is easier to remember G30 P4 than to remember where it actually is in Positional code  G53 X24.124 Y36.9876 Z6.78632 each time we need to revisit there. (;-)

Tools and service calls are very expensive .

Sorry, we are going to stick with the standard way point convention. I know it is odd but it is what we have all lived with for years.

Now if you would like to move to a position of the G30 you could look up the registers and do a g53.

G0 g90 G53 X[5181] Y[5182] Z[5183]

Not tested but it should work..  I use G53 because I hate G28 / G30


That way did not work but this way did.

#5181 = 1 #5182 =2 #5183=3 #5184 =4
G0 g90 G53 X#5181 Y#5182  Z#5183

Are the registers for the G30 suppose to be persistant ???

I was just curiuos as testing showed P1 and P3 are NOT persistant BUT P2 and P4 ARE persitant.   Where are the persistant values stored.

In Mach3 I have a Var report that I can search thru ALL the #vars and report their values.

It wouold be NICE to have one for MAch4.  Currently with #vars and params and Registers I am flying Blind.

I have a plugin here that will report the # vars. It has been added to the Reg plugin. It will be in the next release
Thanks

HIYA Brian I might be time to create a Mach4 dictionary the defines WHAT are all these things ( #var,#param, Registers)and WHAT they should be called officially to avoid confusion.

That way everyone speaks the same terms.

Just a thought, (;-) TP

I call them what you like but the  #var and #param  are stored in registers.. they are all the same sort of.

Thanks

I have always known them as

a # var such as #1 or A in a G65

A # param is a parameter for a function  such a #5061 A axis probe trip position OR set #9999 =1 to turn ON/OFF a function

A register is where these are stored and can be called anything as  Number or a Name

Just a thought, (;-) TP
