Hi, Rich

Thanks for the Info, But I was looking for the update exe for 3.042.023 that Art implied Brian would post with the latest Fix's he made.

After testing there are a few differences in Art's exe  as he stated earlier and I was just wanting to continue testing with a version that had only mod's that addressed the threading Fix's.

Thanks, Chip

Dear Brian and ART,

I just tried out threading with the updated ver 3.042.023 with the SS using G32 or G76.

No joy! Etremely sensitive to a change in rpm on my few tests.
I didn't try the PP.

With only a 10 rpm change ( 400 dn to 390 ) the threading cycle faulted.
When it faults the XZ go  "wild". Also you get the error
"NO SPINDLE FEEDBACK SEEN IN G95"

Ah.....i need to remember what our good looking Scout mom said:
"IF at first you do not succeed, try, try again"  :)

Rich:

 If you can, try PP for me, SS uses different code for the most part. If PP fails, then we'll know its a difference form Brians code to mine.. since mine works in your tests..

Thx

ART,

MACH VER 3.042.023
When i use the SS the rpm is displayed correctly ( 0-1300 RPM within one or two as measured ).
When i use the PP the rpm is off and over 130 rpm it's useless.
The same happens if i replace the ver .023 mach.exe, with the one from .020, and the 17-2 ( only pp use).

This is true for 2 different pc's.


Since I  can't get the PP to correctly display the RPM properly, someone other than myself needs to test using the PP.

Rich:

 Ahh, OK, so I take it the encoder index is just too short for the PP to read, so yours is only usable on the SS..
Did any PP version work on that machine?

  Sorry, my bad, Brian tells me the fix isnt yet released on the web, so this test doesnt mean much. :)
