What about CS Labs new software?

They have one in Beta, I have it downloaded, have not tried it because it has limited functionality, no macro editing and no screen editing - i could not use it on my mill without these functions.

They say it will all be there but after the beta stage is done so no idea when.

I have saved all my macro's as .mcc files and deleted all the .m1s copies.

Will see if that makes any difference.

BTW do not do this to macropump.m1s - it stops it running ;)

Interesting.
I write my own g-code programs (out of my head) and use the following format:
f100 s2000
m3
As far as I can remember, this has never given the Scripter Compile error.

But playing around with the g84 command seems a bit risky as it is greyed out in the manual, meaning it never got passed Art's checking (or Brian's?). Obviously there was a bug in it they could not find. My spindle can't do tapping anyhow (DC servo, not suited to those speeds) so I thread mill instead. Yeah, slower.

On the other hand, if I launch Mach3 .062 and go straight into a program, the first Spin parameter can be missed, with the spindle going to max speed. If I spin the spindle up just once by hand first, all is well for the rest of the day. There is a funny in there somewhere. (Just one???)

Cheers
Roger

I don't mind messing with post coding but, and thats a big but, i probably will not do it as this is a random issue - if the code was wrong it would fail, every time. This issue seems to have a bit of luck attached to it - most of the time it will work, then fail, i've had it mostly fail in the middle of the day i.e. not right on start-up so it will have done many starts and stops but then just decide to fail, most of the time in the middle of a code file.

All the apps i post code with have the same format so i can't see how it can be that.

My CS-LABS controller has a custom code M84 instead of G84 - pretty certain the rigid tapping is done directly in the controller not Mach.
