Re: Laser: Still Trying

How about trying something like this DB25 cable along with a breakout board, or wire it from breakout to breakout? That way you can connect what is needed for the G540 and have access to the output 2 (pin14) and common connections at the breakout board for the PWM signal. Perhaps get in touch with G...

Re: Program restarts after M30

My preferred way is by using a remote cycle start button connected to an input set to CycleStart2. Then any job that requires a part/blank to be changed, has this bit of code at the end that sends it back to the beginning (or wherever N100 is placed). N100 Body of code M200 "Press Cycle Start t...

Re: Can't figure this one out!

Does it always return to exact X0? Along with the backlash check at the problem locations, check to see if the rack itself is dead flat, meaning, is there a dip away from the pinion in that range. I mention this because Avid uses rack clamps along the extrusion to clamp the rack in place and perhaps...

Re: Spindle forward output doesn't work with M3 MDI

Thanks Tom, should have said that as well. Got squirreled on testing spinFWD, for related behavior, on mine after wondering why all would be forced.

Re: Spindle forward output doesn't work with M3 MDI

Your OUT4 is forced off/open. Highlight that one in the diagnostics window and use ctl-alt-F to remove the white line below the LED (you might have to cycle through the three states to get it to be red with no white underscore).

Re: Slave axis getting unpaired

Do you have a CNC12 Pro license applied? A pro license is required for paired axis configurations.

Re: Pendant not Booting semi blank screen

Have you got it enabled in the wizard? Does it show up in device manager? If so, remove it, and scan for new hardware to see if it picks it up again.

Re: After ugrading to 12 v4.80, param 11 always blank

Instead of ToolTouchOffDetect for INP4, use ToolTouchOffTriggered.

Re: Acorn 4.62 - JTech Laser 7w

If you know your way around editing a Vectric post it is. ;) You could take the metric post and open both in an editor, and copy/paste any pertinent parts from one to the other. Post a simple file and read though it to see if it's right and then load it to test out. A little trial and error should g...
