Mach3/G100 bug report - plugin V. 2.00.064
« on: May 07, 2007, 01:39:35 AM »
Found a couple of minor bugs on my first run of Steve Hardy's Xarach controller with Mach3 driving a Wabeco F1210E HS mill:

1) After running into a limit switch, say the Z-axis, on recovery pressing the X or Y keyboard jog arrows causes the Z to run back up into the limit.
If you start by jogging Z instead of another axis, the bug does not appear.

2) When rapid jogging using the keyboard arrows, if you let go of the shift key before the arrow key, it keeps on going and going and....

Otherwise its working very nicely and is cranking away behind me making a part right now.

Another Mach3/G100 bug report - spindle doesn't always start

Thanks Chad,

Just loaded plugin V. 2.00.077 with Mach3 R2.00.065 and the rapid jog bug is fixed - Thanks very much!
The other one is still there, but much less of a problem. 

Something else I had noticed before with V064, but wanted to confirm is a failure to turn on the spindle at the start
of a program.  The spindle ON button blinks and the speed shows up correctly in the DRO, but the spindle
does not start.  This is the third or fourth time I've seen it since starting to use the Xarach controller in a
total of 4 or 5 hours of machining.

This time I hit feed hold, stopped the program, and clicked the spindle button to OFF, then back to ON
and it started OK. So I turned it off and restarted the program, this time with the spindle turning on successfully.

Just ran two more parts through the program without any sign of a problem. Only failure to start the spindle was on the first one.
