saving dro readouts
« on: January 26, 2008, 05:04:55 AM »
hi folks
can i save my settings for a job to open in the same state upon reboot if i have shut down midway through a job
i see the save settings button but im think thats just general ...can i save positions ?
at twentfive thousand lines on average they run beyond work time and i keep noting the dros and running from there
but now a then another worker shuts down and dosent read the dros...losing my values.

All you need to keep a note of is the line number you are at when holding. The next day come in switch on, reference your machine then type the line number into the "Line" DRO and press eneter and then press the "Run from Here" button, this will then run through your code and then ask you to press cycle start when its ready, you will then be asked to confirm a prep move, clcik OK and it will move to the position in the prep move box, once there you just press start again and it will continue from that point.
