Re: G code download?

The pawn was cut using the G70/G71 profile cycle. With the G71/G0 cycle with the G71 part of the cycle there are parameter/values and then the profile of the part is defined. With the G71 cycle all of the g-code moves for roughing is is done behind the scenes. So do you not see line by line g-code m...

Re: Rotary Axis Questions

In the configuration parameter 94 if it is set to 2 then it will show total degrees without the R(wrap). Is this what you are looking for? For the R(wrap) set to 1.

Re: Rotary Axis Questions

For the B axis (Rotary) you do not put any travel limits in. Leave them at 0.0000. You can wind up for ever in either directions that way. The only time I have put travel limits in for a rotary table is because I had fixture mounted that was larger enough that I could not rotate all the way around.

Re: WCS Offset Question

With the G52 there is not any motion. The DRO updates to the current position where it is setting.

Re: WCS Offset Question

G92 sets absolute positions. With a G92 you move the part zero to the current position. If you do a X0.0,Y0.0,Z0.0 it re-sets part zero where it currently is sitting. Unless you wrote down the difference that you changed it by there is not a way to go back. Using a G52 Offset Local Coordinate System...

Re: M200 G code yes no

Yes the M300 variable can be used but not for a comparison. You are right the they are for text (string) format. They can be used in M223, M234, M225. Also the can be used with the M120 and M121. M120 & M121 are used to write information to a file or append a file with additional information Example...

Re: M200 G code yes no

Here is another way to right the G-code with the M224. This one has a GOTO to go back to ask the question again if they do not answer 1 or 2. This way if they fat finger a number besides 1 or 2 it does not go through and do any part of the program. http://centroidcncforum.com/download/file.php?mode=...

Re: Recutting single point threads

For threading cutting if the mating part does not fit all you have to do for an OD thread is use the Tool Wear offset and offset down (negative direction) to adjust to get the part or thread gage to go. For an ID thread offset up (positive direction). If you change the program starting Z the threads...

"However, what happens when you want to add a new tool at a later date?
