looks good Rich. I just sent the new code to Brian and its now in the next version of MAch3, should be out soon.
Multi-slot or TIMING input based threading will not be available till the advanced threading plugin is rewritten, but single point
shoudl be as good as what you got. Correction should in theory work for up to a 75% drop in speed during a thread.

Thx

Rich,
     Nice job on the threading guide. It will clear up a number of things for us. Could you please enable the Printing function for the document. I would like to make a copy to read while traveling but the current version does not allow it to be printed. Thanks - Terry

I will allow printing for the next posted rev "B" which is a day or two away.
Darn thing turned out to be a book instead of a few pages.
Now that i think of it..............it's your ink and paper!  ;)

Rich,

If I may, can you make the contents linked to the corresponding pages? Do you know how to do this?

Thanks,
Daniel

Ha..ha..., don't remember it myself :D Did it only once and it was a few years ago. Will mess around with Microsoft Word a bit and try to recall what was the way to do it.

Dan,
A little off the intent of the thread, think you create a summary and then just use it in Adobe.
I'll take care of it in the end. Still a lot of work to do for and on it.

Hi All,
Just fooling around some and decided to try some multistart threading.
Here is a three start thread. The pitches are equal just couldn't hold the camera
correctly on the scope lens. NEVER was able to do this a year ago, couldn't even do a two start.
Used the G76 / 10 passes each thread and using Z offset method for the threading.

I did have trouble trying to use the format:
#99066=0
G76.....
#99066=120
G76.....
#99066=240
G76......
The code would just get hung up on the second G76 waiting for the triggering.
