Re: Rigid Tapping parameter 78 ?

I'll look into it. You should not be receiving that message as your report indicates you definitely have Pro. I apologize for the inconvenience. Perhaps I can narrow the error down to one of the parameters changes tonight. Previously I had tried rigid tapping but only changing , I believe, 78 and m...

I haven't connected my computer to the internet since before I started using the software. Perhaps this is an issue ?

Re: Rigid Tapping parameter 78 ?

Jake, I think you are going to have to experiment with the machinable wax. After applying the parameter settings in the draft document wrt rigid tapping, I'm getting an error when it gets to this line ( the tapping section ) : Line 51 : N260 G84 X-0.0817 Y0.0169 Z-0.35 R0.2 F25. Here is the error c...

Re: Graphical interface suggestion - to and from increment or continuous

Got out to my shop this morning to check out the Acorn PLC. I made these changes, compiled and it tested good. Anytime you cycle between x1 x10 x100 with keyboard shortcuts or press the x1 x10 x100 buttons on the screen it will also trigger incremental jogging..... Thank you ! I'll give this a try ...

Re: Rigid Tapping parameter 78 ?

Good luck. Be sure.to post pictures and do a video showing the machine rigid tapping and the control running the code. Marty Hey Marty, For sure I'll post when I get it going, hopefully by Sunday night. I do have one question regarding parameter 37. Everything in the draft document for rigid tappin...

Graphical interface suggestion - to and from increment or continuous

Let me start off by saying I love the centroid hardware and software. That being said I have a suggestion. It seems to me it would be logical that if I hit the 1 , 10 , 100 increment buttons your next action would be to increment rather than jog continuously. So, imho, the software should automatica...

Re: Rigid Tapping parameter 78 ?

Thanks Marty! That should do the trick ! I'll post back when I get it tuned in. Sounds like I should get some machinable wax first, though.

Cheers,

Re: Rigid Tapping parameter 78 ?

I’m wondering if I need to set parameter 78 to 4 instead of 2?

Thanks Dickey, yeah, we try to help each other out the best we can !
