program quits at 5K line every time
« on: September 26, 2008, 01:22:18 AM »
I am  novice and inserted a string of g code generated in sheetcam ,it is about 35K lines but consistently quits operation at precisely 5000lines.Is there some kind of "stop" at 5000 lines that is intentionally included or perhaps I have somehow triggered. Any help appreciated

It will be line 500 (lines in sheetCAM are probably numbered in 10's)
The demo version of Mill is limited to 500 lines and Turn 150.
If you have a licence it looks like you dont have it in your Mach3 folder, to check go to the Help menu then AboutMach3....   youwill then either see the name you registered with or it will say Demo.

Please attach your xml and the full code.
 Also does the code (and Mach) just stop or does Mach do anything?

Line 5000 included in the post is actually the 500th line since the line #s increment by 10... if that's the number you are basing your observations on, the program has 4,499 lines.
If line 5000 is where it's stopping, sounds like a licensing issue.

Not quite sure what "xml" is . Sorry showing my ignorance it is the 500th line not the 5000 one. As far as mach goes.This is my first try at running mach3. First I ran the code generated by sheetcam without the machine actually running. several times. A few times it ran all the way through and but mostly stopped at the 500th line .the only time it did run through a couple of consequtive times I engages the machine and ran it physically .Tried this twice ,each time my machine worked well [Joe's 2006 model built last winter,with hobbycnc control] and just quit when it gets to line 500.

Mach just stops,seems to be doing fine up to line 500. 

Not sure how to insert code .tried to paste it but that made the correspondance too big......thank you for the help  regards mike hide

OK your xml is in the Mach3 folder on your drive. If you are using a standard Mach3Mill profile the xml you want to attach is Mach3Mill.xml. You will however need to rename it as the forum will only accept a file name once and Mach3Mill.xml will have been used. To rename right click on the xml and choose copy then paste it to the desktop and right click again and choose rename and suggest you call it mike_hide.xml.  If you are using a custom profile the you need the xml that has that profiles name, ie *****.xml.

To attach files to the forum make sure you are using the full reply page and you will see additional options at the bottom left, click that then browse your drive to the files and choose them.

Go into your Mach3 folder (usually at c:\Mach3\) and copy the mach3mill.xml file to your desktop (right click the file and click "copy", switch to the desktop, right click and click "paste"). Select the file  on the desktop and hit f2 on your keyboard so you can rename the file. Rename it mikehide.xml, then upload by clicking "additional options" when you are replying to this thread.
