Lathe turn cycle only works once.
« on: May 03, 2023, 04:11:31 PM »
After installing build 5036,  the lathe turn cycle only works one time.
After starting Mach4, then entering the parameters for the turn cycle, pressing 'view tool path' loads the gcode into mach4.  But the next time a turn cycle is set up, 'view tool path' does not load the gcode.  This used to work.
To run another turn cycle, I have to exit Mach4 and then restart it.

Is there a fix for this.  Does it work ok for other people?

Which turn cycle are you trying?  When I use the Turning module from the Turn Cycles tab it works as expected.
Selecting from the wizard gets an error code of LUA version mismatch.

I tried the turning cycle.  I finally just reloaded all the code and started over.  Then it worked, so I guess I had some corrupted code.
