Found a ton of more bugs in Mach Motion Lathe Wizards.

The parting wizard crashed my tool, now I need another parting tool. No matter what you change the feedrate to it stays at 10 IPM and the RPM stays at what you have in the preferences, in my case 1800 RPMs.

And it locks up every so often. It also will get hung up and the settings won't change. So if you go to run a program and some of the gcode is not what you want and you go back to the wizard and change a value and update it, it doesn't update the Gcode when you generate it.

Could you post the offending code generated by the wizard along with the settings you entered?

I'd really like to duplicate/verify what you are describing.
But, I see from NFS ... Download the fully functional Demo, try it out, see if you like it .......

Then I try out the wizards and get this ....

As far as the wizards go, I guess ya gotta buy it to try it.  :)

Oh and another bug, kind of. If I do multiple drill cycles in the same program only the first drill sequence moves the drill to the Z that was set in the wizards. After my carriage moves for a tool change to a different drill the carriage won't move back to the correct Z so it starts to peck drill about 2 inches in front of the part. It has the correct coordinates to drill to, but the starting Z is way off and other drills after that are that way too so I have to edit the gcode so as to not waste time having it drill air.

That sort of looks like a tool Z offset issue.
Can you verify that the offsets are configured and applied correctly for each tool ?

Peck drilling is a canned cycle that remains in effect until a G80 is issued.  Every time you make a move it will issue another peck cycle.  Check the code to see if a g80 is issued after each peck cycle.

I'm with RT on that one... Make sure you're cancelling the Drill Cycle with G80.

@overloaded, it's not an offset issue as it still drills to the correct depth, just takes forever(s) ;-). I'm not cancelling anything. This is straight from the wizards. I'm doing 3 different drill cycles and compile them all within the wizard.

Here's the code:

Here's a pic of the wizard entries and the resulting code for the messed up Parting Cycle. Also the pecking part doesn't work at all.
