Hi All:

  New plugin is online. Bugs we're working on now..

1) Jogging is not decelerating properly when jog speed is changed. This affects things liek the shuttle jogging,
thats number 1 on priority, and we'll get it fixed up soon.

2) Spindle control, there is none, we'll fix that up too.

New plugin has FRO from 100% to 0%.. and homign and limits appear to be fine..

Jogging now working after version upgrade, was using Ver 2.0061 now using 2.62A

Got my homing working with the PlugIn posted last night.

Axis directions OK on Y and Z but still problems on the X. (Had to change Dir Low Active setting to get it moving correctly)

Axis speed is showing up in the DRO as almost twice the actual speed, ie if I do a G0 it will show as 4000 something mm/min instead of 2400mm/min, could be due to not having motors tuned?

Up/Down arrow keys for axis movement when on motor tuning page still dont work for me so cant tune motors.

If I jog one way then the other before the axis has finished decelerating the motors will stall (steppers) This could be the decel bug mentioned by Art above.


All in all a vast improvement over yesterday, keep up the good work Art and Greg :)

Hood:

   Good, at least joggin is OK.. at least on yours, we're working on a fix fro smoothness of decel..

 Direction is wrong on X?? Hmm. OK, Gregs looking into that one..

 Axis speed is perfect here.. What controller frequency are you using, and axis max frequency??
 We're aware of the stall, that will be fixed shortly, the tuning however will probably never tune while in the window,
the system cant move at the new numbers till it flahses the new information to the SS, so thats one thing that wont work.. tungin has to be by trial and erro at the moment..

Thanks, Good reports,
Art

well got mine working, found out that if you had turned off the device selection that pops up in the beginning, you are unable to load the SS.  I reenabled it and now mine is working good.

So, note to you that may have turned off your device selection and then tried to install the SS, go and reenable the dev selection.

The X direction wrong is not a hard bug. Mine runs in correct direction (i.e. as PP). Accidental change in Ports/Pins perhaps?
