OK here TIS.  I like the Imbedded values I wish Mach4 did that.

Art, could I design a totally unorthodox tool like a disk (imagine a sawblade) with a semicircular rim radius? and have the centre of the disk to be the point anchored to the toolpath lines? So imagine a disk cutting with its faces back and forth.  This is for foam cutter machine. Maybe I could design the  disk as a solid and import it into the program? And how about we also define the stock accurately, lets say if you could also open a solid (stl, step, obj or some other solid file).

thanks,
F

OK here is an update/ answer(;-)

I redownloaded the lastest ver and set it up in another drive as a DEMO version and Gsim WORKS (;-)

BUT it still will not work in the original profile Mach4 Industrial version.

You're the only one using the industrial version. It's not available to us mere mortals.

HIYA Gerry,   Unless you are doing conditional parametric Gcode and G65 Macros  I don't see where  you are missing anything (;-)

There IS a pro version Gcode Editor but I have not seen that yet(;-)

ART, Here is are TEST Gcode files IF you want something to PUSH or punish Gsim (;-) Mach4 can run it BUT not Gsim.

Hi Terry:

  I think I found the problem that stopped those two files from running, Im simming them fine now. (Though the first pass is at z=0 so does nothing, the rest simulates kinda nice looking...

 New version in a few minutes that shoudl fix that. IT coudl also explain some crashing issues... IT DOESNT explain how roadrunner coudl have failed.. but
you never know... :)

Hi All:

  Version 1.005 allows for full arcs.. ( the previous files issue.. just a typo.. )

It also fixes a possibel crash issue in arc interpolations..

Thx

I knew it woulnt fix your problem Terry, you couldnt load Roadrunner... which is really weird.
Im not sure their would be a different. Have you tried running vanilla wxMach with no screenset?
  Any Difference?
