How to set the "Rotation Radius" from NC file?
« on: February 08, 2015, 12:25:28 PM »
Is there a way to set the "Rotation Radius" used for the 4th axis (in the "Settings" tab) from a NC file?  I wrote some Python scripts to do pipe coping and it would be real nice to automatically configure this from gcode files.  I do not see this in the parameters list.

Thanks, TurboStew

You would set it via the OEMDRO that holds the value.

Create a Macro that holds the update code then call it and use a param to feed the radius into the update macro. That way you only have to create one master macro to do any setting

M2000 P6.6    The macro would take the param and use it to set the OemDro to 6.6
