G2/G3 resolution

Is there a way to control the resolution or maximum number of facets when a g2 or G3 move is used.

Thanks

Reprogramming output relays

I would like to reprogram one of the unused relays on my all in 1 DC to control a motor cooling fan. I would like it to turn on when an m3 or m4 is commanded and off when an m5 is commanded. I'm guessing it would probably involve changing some parameters. Is there a resource that I can reference? Th...

Re: Alarm code 549

Could the controller computer somehow combine all the characters with the same line number and interpret them as one string for the purposes of throwing up the 549 alarm?

The mill and allin1dc thus so far work as advertised. last night he contacted me saying he was getting alarm code 549. This came right from the centroid alarm index. Centroid Alarm 549 Line too long Cause...

homing using limit switch and axis encoder z channel

I am about to install an allin1 board on a clients machine. I would like to know if there is a way to employ the use of the z channel (one pulse per rev) on the axis encoder to repeatably home the machine after coming off of a limit switch. Marty did a similar thing with the acorn and a dmm servo on...

Re: Cnc lathe crashing with conversational programming

Well, I found the issue. I have the rough passes set for f/m with a value of 5.000 and guess what lol, the finish passes set for f/r with a value of 2.000. No wonder it crashed. I changed it to f/m and all is good. Rookie mistake. It's amazing how machines do exactly what you tell them to do.

Re: Cnc lathe crashing with conversational programming

My apologies, it isset up X -.1, Y -.1 for g28 And no, I'm not loosing steps or mechanical problem, it's something in the code. I Generated similar code using the turn function and there were no issues changing tools or crashing. Made 10 parts no issues. It appears things go haywire right after the ...

Cnc lathe crashing with conversational programming (Resolved)

I don't know what is going on with conversational programming on my emco 6pcnc lathe. I just started messing around with the profile function of intercon. Set up a roughing profile cleanout with a finish pass. It goes though the motions of the rough pass just fine. It goes back to tool check for the...

Re: Acorn not working

Ok. Got a new bbg from Amazon. I followed the instructions on Marty's video. All that happens when pressing the user button when powering up with the micro usb plug is the blue power light comes on. No 4 blue lights. Did I miss something with a fresh board. I'm a machinist with a little knowledge of...
