HEY SPINNETTI

                  i was reading your post and thought maybee we had the same problem, we don't. took your program and ran it - could see where it missed x53 move. -went through the code and made sure that every line had a carriage return.
                  here is a copy for you,take a look at it. moving on to my ghost hunt now.

Thanks for lookin..

I did run a few parts with lookahead set to 1 and it worked ok, but thats not a "for sure".. could have just been luck of the draw. I'm out of town for the rest of the week, but hope to run some more this weekend.

Thanks!

Brian,

Running the file from my C drive did not fix the problem. The first time I ran the file it messed up
After I changed the "look ahead" to 1, the problems seems to dissappear (running on my home PC, not the mill)

I ran the file approx 20 times without problems.
This does not mean I am 100% sure the problem is fixed, because during my last production run of 200 pieces, only 4 pieces went wrong

Anyway, it looks promising, I hope it works as well for Spinnetti

Thanks

Jan

Sounds to me like you have a problem with the lookahead.. That is just odd.. I have run your file here many times and have not seen that problem! I will keep an eye out for it!
Thanks

Hi,
I've had the same problem while working with versions 2.62, 3.00  and 3.01. After updating to 3.039 the problem with lookahead seems to be cured.
But now I have problem with feed rates :

I set the look ahead to 1 and am not having problems, but I've only run a dozen parts or so. Problem is, I don't have full confidence that the problem is done, or just less likely. The machine crashes not only scare me, but will cost me more money in damaged equipment.

Any more thoughts on root cause resolution?

Thanks
