What is the best way to find the center of a part using an edge finder

While reading the manual I did not find a example how to find the center of a part.

I found an old topic describing a possible solution by using macro's

viewtopic.php?f=20&t=575&p=2653&hilit=edge+finder#p2653

but I wonder if there is already an easier way to do this.

Re: Request: Keyboard shortcuts for all buttons in the VCP

Hi Marty, In another topic I read Centroid is working on changing the vcp, so I thought this would be the ideal time to ask for some miner additions ;) I know Centroid is working on support for a XHC wireless pendant, but I always wanted to build a control panel. Not having a pendant available gave ...

Re: Request: Keyboard shortcuts for all buttons in the VCP

Hi Scott, indeed nearly all buttons have a keyboard shortcut, but not all. My request is for all buttons to have a keyboard shortcut. I have both a touchscreen and a xkeys-pad connected and configured, but I like neither of them. Currently there is no real pendant available for the Acorn, so I want ...

Request: Keyboard shortcuts for all buttons in the VCP

I am trying to create my own control panel using a Pokeys57U, at this moment it is nothing more then a bunch of buttons nd wires on a breadboard, but it is working. Created some macro's to put behind the Aux buttons, and it all works. Unfortunately not all buttons in the vcp have a keyboard shortcut...

can't change Fast and Slow Jog..

I have found the cause :D When input 7 ProbeTripped is configured for Input Type NO: I cannot toggle between fast/slow jog. When I change it to Input Type NC, or put Input 7 to unused (so no probe configured): I can toggle between fast/slow jog. Because I am still testing the total setup, I had set ...

can't change Fast and Slow Jog..

I press <alt J> and then <CTRL F> toggle state does not change. Jog axis at 100% feedrate, displayed feed rate = 200 (= slow feed jog speed) Changing fast jog to be the same as Max rate, does not solve the problem. When I change the settings in the wizard to Benchtest, I CAN toggle slow/fast jogging...
