Re: VCP Set X0 Y0 Z0 buttons on Milling Machine

You'll need to assign a macro (mfuncXX.mac) to the buttons in the Wizard, and that macro will need to have the appropriate code for the function. Or you can also embed the code or macro call right in the buttons .xml file. Pages 33 and 39. https://www.centroidcnc.com/centroid_diy/downloads/centroid_...

Re: CNC12 Router Restructure Beta Software thread. RC1 Now available, July 3rd.

5.18 RC1... The previous MPG issues appear to be resolved. On the Graphing and RTG loop issues, the following code added to my looping files appears to remedy the looping problems that weren't present without it in previous versions. I wonder if there may be any other trigger that could totally lock...

Re: Help needed: Lost bottom portion of my VCP updating from 4.82 to 5.10

Just rename the install you're working on to something like "cncm_config in progress" or something that works for you, then install again. When that is done, rename that one to "cncm_Default" and put yours back to "cncm". Then you'll have all the default files you need ...

Re: Help needed: Lost bottom portion of my VCP updating from 4.82 to 5.10

That section is now also user editable, you'll need to add the pertinent entries from one of the default skin files into your custom VCP skin file. Because there are some changes at the top and bottom of the default skin files, it's better to add your changes to a default one. Load up both in Notepa...

Re: Spindle moves up instead of down for tool touch off

Yep, insulate it from grounding. Depending on the operation, you could get a fault of one kind or another. I use the plastic refrigerator magnet tape on the back of mine and stick it to the steel gantry end plate. Just be sure to measure and reset the thickness for it.

Re: Spindle moves up instead of down for tool touch off

I like to use fast probe = 10, and slow probe = 3. It might just be your machine/connections or something, but I can hold my touch plate in the air as it's coming down for the first touch, and I can't even feel it touch. If there's question on the tool being a bit delicate, I'll hold the plate up a ...

Rev5 RTG/Graphing lock up

I will often run looping files where at the end of the file I have a M200 message to continue when ready followed by a GOTO 100. If you load one of those files, and graph it, you can't use cycle start to start the job and cycle cancel doesn't get you out of it, but Escape will. If you use RTG and ru...

Re: CNC12 Router Restructure Beta Software thread. Rev5 Now Available!

The MPG mostly works now, see this thread...https://centroidcncforum.com/viewtopic.php?p=88972#p88972 In rev5, the MPG x1/x10/x100 dial, doesn't change the rates. It doesn't change the VCP buttons, and MPG motion can only be set by manually changing the VCP buttons. Example, MPG set to x1, and VCP c...

Re: ShopBot PRT Alpha 96 upgrade project begins!

Gene, I don't have a dial indicator handy at the moment, but my best measurement with a dial calipers after 5 years of a lot of 3D rastering and many other operations, might be about 0.005" of lateral movement of the PRS gantry. My SB 7.2:1 gearboxes after 12 years were close to 0.015" whe...

Re: Spindle moves up instead of down for tool touch off

Well, if you want to continue running your Z axis backwards, you could change your probing macros as stated by Mattwo_support, or you can reverse the Z axis in Axis Configuration so that when you press the Z- button, it goes down and Z+ goes up. Then in Homing & Travel, change the Z (axis3) homi...
