Hi all,
Brian ,no joke,I think the world of this software!
 I had never seen this  error report before.
Mach was going thru "it's process " and I was
unaware .
 I think this system is "Great" !
 My only wish!!! I could figure how to conect to
this hatefull Fadal !
 Thanks ,
Bear

What Mcode are you talking about??? Is it the M3.m1s???

Try this Spindle speed Macro and tell me if it is okay with your system :)

Thanks
Brian

Also please copy in the Spindle Speed macro that I posted and tell me if you still have the problem

Thanks

I have that here but it never seems to give me any trouble... Tell me if you still have problems after cleaning up the macro code.

Thanks

Hello Guys,
Well I got this problem in the last update of Mach.
Now went and cleaned the wierd characters and save the files again and looks like the problem is gone, now the massege is gone and the spindle starts  o.k.
Thanks for the advice Brian. ;)
Marco.   ;D

Unfortunately no matter what I do I still get this error message intermittently. 

It generally appears first thing when I begin work with a new g code file (not always though). 

The only work around  that has any success is to shut down Mach3, reboot the computer, then reload Mach3.  Works most of the time (but not always). 

It occurs on both my laptop which I use to generate code in the comfort of my office when I simulate my code and on the desktop machine that I use to run my mill. 

The strange thing is that once I have made the devil of a thing go away, it remains satisfactory for the rest of the day.

Sometimes when it appears, I get so frustrated I give up for the day and go and do something else.  Next day with the same code that failed the day before it behaves like a meek little lamb.  Butter wouldn't melt in its mouth!!!

I am convinced that all it needs is an overnight rest.

Hello Chris,
Have You try to clean the code in the macros folder?
Try cleaning (erasing all of the weird charactres  in the line of code) and then save the file.
Try to look in Hidden Script ,M3 M4 and M5. Also If You have more than One profile You have to clean those also. I was getting the message also and with this fix ,I don't get it any more and every thing is running fine.
Hope this helps, Marco.

Hi Marco,

I have found the Macros folder in the Mach3 directory.

Question is "which file do I open to investigate for corrupt info?"

Is it spindlespeed.m1s? 

If so, can I open it with notepad so that I can edit it?

Kind Regards

Chris

Hello Chris,
Open the files named :
Hidden Scripts.m1s
M3.m1s
M4.m1s
M5.m1s
And yes You can use notepad for the cleanup
It may look like this:
M3.m1s   
DoSpinCW()  with weird stuff here,delete the characters  and save the DoSpinCW() and so on.
If You have special macros in Hidden Scripts check that there are no weird characters mix with the code. Like little boxes or squares.
Hope that this helps,Marco  ;)
