Brian,

I know your soliciting suggestions so let me throw this one out there:

On the existing wizards that use drilling (Rectangular Hole Pattern and Holes Around A Circle come to mind) how difficult would it be to specify Circular Pockets instead of a straight drilling operation?

This would allow the same wizards to be used with bits that are too small to drill the hole by themselves.

Thanks,
Pegasus

I think this is doable but it is going to take some time ... I am working on LazyCam at this point but hope to have time in a few months or so...

Thank you

dear members,

I'm a newby trying out the newfangled wizzards.
All the hole related wizzards doesnot work
on the circular hole pattern the error is error on line 33 type mismatch
on the linear hole pattern the error is error on line 29 type mismatch
on the drill hole position the error is error on line 42 type mismatch

All the other wizzards work!
Any idea what goes wrong??

Can you tell me more about the error? They work OK for me.

What other setting are you using? number of holes, diameter, etc. Also which hole type- peck, drill, did you select?

Which button do you pres to see the error.

material selction steel hard max spindle rate 4000 max feed rate 100.0 units inch  so default values

then continue
circular hole pattern
surface speed for special tool 1.0 ft/min tool 4 tooel dia 0.1250 HSS number of cutting tips 4
chip load per tooth 0.0009 inches spindle direction CW Flood Overrides 100% Feed 0% percent plung feed rate 50 spped 764 rpm feed rate 2.8
continue
Z center 5.0000 Y center +0.0000 5 holes Circle diameter +20.000 start angle +0.000 drill G81
rapid height +0.1250 Peck depth -0.2500 Hole depth -1.000
Preview
error showing
Mach3Scripts
error on line :33 -type mismatch
after OK
the erro script opens
after closing
Save changes to HiddenScript.m1s?
No
Then cancel exit and the main screeni sshowin the folowing code:

Thats all

It works for me with those same values, but there are a couple strange things. You have feed set to 0%, that shuould generate an error when you try to calculate the feed and speed. It also seems strange that you have a Special Surface Feed of only 1 ft/min.

But none of these should cause you to see a VB error.

If you use the Post Code button does that work?

What version are you using? the Wizard should show its version on the first screen.

Ron,

if I remove both the Z=0 and Q=0 sentences from the VB script it seems to work.
Can i safely remove them?

Kind regards,
Andre

Which wizard are you running? The Newfangled Solutions wizards are supposed to be password protected so you cant see the VB code.

Can you cut the VB code and paste it here so I can see the code you are looking at- then I can be sure what wizard we are trying to fix.

Sorry, but I have not received any more information on this problem. Can you post the section of the VB code you have trouble with to this forum.
