Re: Issues with my Centroid Acorn on PM 833TV

As for the probe, is it normal for the probe to be tripped too? as in, the axis won't jog unless I have 1x selected on my MPG. I might be missing something (probably am) but shouldn't the probe be sitting just above the part? I wish Cnc12 would allow you to control that behavior. Just think about i...

Re: ProbeApp V2: The ultimate solution for Tool Height Offsets

I did some testing with my Tormach probe and found that approach direction makes a huge difference. If I orient the probe so one of the sides of the probes kinematic “triangle” is in line with the probing axis, then I get +/-.002” repeatability. If I turn the probe 45 degrees, the repeatability dro...

Re: ProbeApp V2: The ultimate solution for Tool Height Offsets

I lowered the bit down to the stock and it is about 0.3mm above. Is this correct? If your Tool Setter was positioned on top of your stock when you measured Tool T2 and you lower now your Z axis with T2 in the spindle to WCS Z0, the tool should be exactly on top of your stock. If it is 0.3mm above i...

Re: ProbeApp V2: The ultimate solution for Tool Height Offsets

Copying this here from the original post. Let's keep this going here as reference. Am I supposed to have a program for each tool path for each, run ProbeApp, load the required program and then run it?. Everytime I hit the ProbeApp icon, it just takes me through the setup again. When I hit the Cycle ...

Re: Tool Length Sensor

Am I supposed to have a program for each tool path for each, run ProbeApp, load the required program and then run it?. Everytime I hit the ProbeApp icon, it just takes me through the setup again. When I hit the Cycle button it ends. The guide says to look at the mfunc6.mac and the probe_cycle files...

Re: ProbeApp V2: The ultimate solution for Tool Height Offsets

Hello, a few screen shots running ProbeApp after the mfunc6.mac has been renamed, the configuration prompts have all been filled out. Not once did the machine move. Not sure what to do next. Photos are not ordering correctly. (Should Be 5,4,1,2,3). Thanks From other thread: https://centroidcncforum...

Re: Tool Length Sensor

Thanks. Okay commented that line out and ran ProbeApp. Here are screen shots of what took place. At no point did the machine move. These screenshots don't make any sense. What exactly where your expectations what the ProbeApp should do here? Can you please add information to each screenshot describ...

Re: Tool Length Sensor

Thanks, I will stop asking for help. I don't understand how it works. I have read through the guide, followed the prompts. If load a program and then run it, ProbeApp runs, prompts me to put in a tool. When I hit green button the spindle starts. As I said before, the ProbeApp is not a magic tool th...

Re: Tool Length Sensor

Hi, I edited the mfunc6.mac file and ran a test for probe app and it ran fine. When I loaded a program and ProbeApp ran the spindle started. What did I miss? Thanks You have to give much more details about what exactly you were trying to archive, the detailed steps you took, the results you got and...

Re: Issues with my Centroid Acorn on PM 833TV

1) On Fusion 360, if I pick the origin in the front left corner of the stock and probe and zero the same exact point in CNC 12, the mill acts as if I have zeroed the WCS in the back right corner of the part and therefore starts cutting in air. I have looked everywhere and can't seem to find the iss...
