G66 Calls not working in Mach4?
« on: May 12, 2016, 07:05:26 PM »
I can get G65 to work, but G66 is puking. Is there a format error?
Code like this;
N54 (Drill - J End Bottom)
N55 G66 P10003 X1.3100 Y0.9400 K0.14 J1 I0
N56 X2.7400 Y0.9400 K0.14 J1 I0
N57 X1.3100 Y-0.9400 K0.14 J1 I0
N58 X2.7400 Y-0.9400 K0.14 J1 I0
N59 G67

That's looking very '80s spaghetti code.
Just saying.

I just tested it worked fine for me... I had to add a 2 lines to define #102 and #103, I'm not sure what you were doing with these.

Mach needs to be licensed for Industrial before it will run these files.

Thanks,
Andrew

PS. You need to rename the file O10003.txt to O10003 remove the file extension.
