Re: today i drafted a discussion paper on tool height offset methods

Will the new version auto store the tool offset in the library? I changed to z zero button to Z Reference so my brain understands. I Ken im not sure what you mean. Reference in our lexicon is not a part zero. any version of CNC12 will "auto store" the tool offsets, this is nothing new. :D

Re: VCP RESET onscreen button

reading marc's comments i thought he was asking for a virtual estop button which osha isn't going to like. No, not at all. I was suggesting that the appearance of the VCP reset button could change, depending on whether the actual emergency stop button was pressed. This would make it more obvious to...

Re: min lathe build AC spindel on off control

the ether1616 manual has examples on how to wire up such a configuration. it would be the same using Acorn outputs.

Re: Help with Z move speed

need more info. photos of machine/motors/ wiring cabinet etc..

there are thousands of Acorn Clearpath systems running great so lets not be too quick to point fingers :-)

also you are using some pretty old CNC12 software would be a good time to install the latest.

Re: VCP RESET onscreen button

the reset button is not an estop.
the vcp reset button is resetting software, CNC12, clearing fault messages etc.
a virtual 'estop' isn't an actual estop and can not be labeled as such
