Mulitipass button
« on: November 23, 2014, 02:22:22 PM »
Hello, it's me again...
While watching the tutorials I see a Multipass button that doesn't show up in the Program run screen. Am I missing some thing or has this been taken out?
 I finally figure my CAD out and have designed a project that need the multipass option.

Thanks.........gldfshrdr

It's been replaced by the multi pass wizard.

Thanks. This should be fun to figure out.

How are you creating your g-code so that you need to use the multi pass wizard?
If you need to convert your code to multipass on a regular basis, you need to re-think the way you're creating your code.

I do have F-engrave that converts bitmaps to G code. I did not use it in this case. I'm not sure it will allow multipass but I haven't tried it either.

The Multipass wizard works great. The progress screen never showed any progress. But when I checked the file it was there, loaded and ran the simulation just fine.

I beleive it IS possible to resurect the old multipass function if you really needed it. Instead of rewriting the Gcode it just loops it with a M30 and Z inhibit.

Just a thought, (;-) TP
