Have you padded it with Sleep(100) everywhere - it helps.

I am just about at the edge of a tin of petrol and torching the project now - its been fighting me all the way and i have just about had enough - its like trying to force oil and water to mix.

I enjoy a struggle but only if there is light at the end of the tunnel - this probing saga has killed that light, I just want a machine that does what i want, I have binned my ATC thoughts - I can do without that sort of grief I think, if it cant handle simple probing then an ATC has no chance.

I know its all plugin/Mach related but I just get two steps forward and four backwards.

If its the wizard doing it,
Quote
how would i combine the wizard screen into the main screen as a page?

If using Machscreen, just select everything of the wizard page and copy/paste  the wizard screen page into an empty page of the other screen.

Thanks Rich, I'm going to look at that tonight, its not quite that easy as the main set uses layer 0 a lot so all the pages have some space lost. I will likely have to pick and paste only the critical parts.

But it does seem to be wizard related. A friend has also asked me to check the PC RAM is still all there and has enough.

still working on this ;)

I dont suppose some kind soul would let me know exactly which buttons/controls MUST be on a screen to make it function?

I am building a test page but cant even get jog or MDI to give motion - i have it homing ok though


Thanks

Ok, got it ;)

Jog on/off button :)


But...

Any reason G53 fails?
If i load a file or MDI it I get "cannot use G53 incremental. Block...."

you can not use a G53 in G91 (incremental)

G53 is allways a absolute (G90) move
anything is possible, just try it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.

IIRC it was stuck in G91 when i tried it
