From the download page:
V4.64 release notes.
- Fixed issue when Parameter 43 is set to non-zero it forces the user to use a Tool Touch Off when performing a Auto Part Z0 probing cycle.
- Added more clarity in the Wizard Tool Touch page of how the TT height value effects Auto Part 0 probing cycle.

Re: Acorn CNC12 Mill, Router, and Lathe v4.6 has been released!

Hi Keith,
I am having issues with the homing and squaring after upgrading from 4.6 to 4.64 Router. I have re done the wizard like you are suggesting and the auto homing for Y is strange, it moves only one of the axis instead of both in sync before tripping the switch even though I have setup the pairing correctly! I have looked at all possibilities and can’t get it to home. Any advice? Thanks

do not use a mill v4.5 report and try to use it with the new CNC12 Router version!!

this first Router version has to be setup using the wizard. then subsequent releases can use a Router report to update to the new version.

TIA

I must be making a silly rookie mistake while doing the 4.5 -> 4.6 Lathe update.

Following https://www.centroidcnc.com/centroid_di ... ctions.pdf. Page 2, top of page 3. My attempts to restore the saved report always require a power down and the result is always the same -- no restored report. Further, when I start the wizard there is a never a 'update wizard' screen/option.

I took photos of each configuration screen so I could go through an manually re-enter everything, but that shouldn't be required.

Help?

That's exactly what's required. If you keep reading through the manual on page 4 it states in highlighted text that you CANNOT use the "restore report" method when upgrading to the first version starting with 4.64. You must manually enter all your parameters. Going forward you can restore reports.
