is restart nessessary after edit?
« on: June 19, 2015, 11:11:57 AM »
Hello chaps
probably a stupid question but here goes

while running code in the autocycle mode if I stop the program using "stop"
and then edit the code. I then resave the code and it overwrites the code in memory.

At that point is it nessessary to restart mach3 ? or can i safely just rewing and start over again?

regards

fred

I would always USE feedhold , wait until everything stopped motion THEN stop. And yes you can edit Gcode then resume cutting either from the beginning or from Run from here or Set next line. IF you use set next line you MUST make sure all the needed modal values are set.
