Barely, but I'll give it a shot!

Re: Fusion 360 Mill Post Processor for Acorn with additional Features (New Version 3)

Check for conflicting Tool Numbers (same Number but different Tools): Logic has been added that checks for conflicting Tool Information e.g. using the same Tool Number but with different geometry. In F360, I have some mill-drills https://www.lakeshorecarbide.com/altincoatedchamferdrill-mills.aspx s...

Re: An easier way to make buttons

This post was a favorable mention of the Boxy .svg editor.
It seemed great, it's not.
The .svg files it makes don't play nice with Centriod.
Back to Inscape.

Forget I mentioned it.

One-Shot VCP .SVG Buttons

Hi, Wondering if .SVG files for the built in One-Shot functions have been released for public use? I don't see them in the cncm\resources\vcp\Buttons folders. I see that the artwork exists for custom overlays per TB194: https://www.centroidcnc.com/centroid_diy/tech_bulletins/uploads/194.pdf I'm aski...

Tool Check Spindle Dwell

I currently have a dwell time programmed into my M3 macro to allow 5 seconds for the spindle to spool up, which works as expected except when resuming from a tool check. When I resume, motion starts immediately after the spindle is energized. If I forget to crank down the feedrate override before 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: Error 907 Z Axis travel exceeded

I think the problem is that your M6 macro selected "G91" mode (in order to do the "G28 G91 X0 Y0 Z0" move to the tool-change position), but your CNC program assumed that it was still in G90 mode after the M6. Because you end the tool change at maximum Z height and (inadvertently...

Error 907 Z Axis travel exceeded

Hi, Trying to run a job, getting the 907 error, can't for the life of me figure out why. I Touched off G54 Z0 using probe (loaded the probe using m6T2H2) When I try to run the following job it throws a error at line N55 when I hit cycle start % (T22 D=0.25 ZMIN=-0.18 - flat end mill - HELICAL - END ...
