Re: motor squealing kstep + kstep via jp26

Hi a_j_p, I cannot seem to figure out what the output channel for the 2nd Kstep (I am running the 2nd Kstep through JP26). The first 4 motors run on output channels 8-11, but 12-15 for the next motors don't seem to do anything for me for the next set of motors. That should work. Did you have the 2 J...

Re: Tool table page

No, the DROs have fixed hard coded labels.

Re: Tool table page

Not that I can think of. I suppose you could read/modify/write it but there isn’t currently a method to determine which control has the focus.

Re: Z moves moves irratically

Hi Bob,

What kind of axes and Drives do you have? Encoders?

Have you tested the axes with the KMotion Step Response Screen? Does it move the correct distance?

Re: Tool table page

Hi Francois,

The Tool Table is read each time the GCode Interpreter begins execution.

And yes the Tool Table could be read/written from a C Program but that might be somewhat slow as KMotionCNC only processes a few commands per second.

Re: Tool table page

Francois,

That would require changes to the MFC KMotionCNC Source code. Besides changes to make use of the new values.

Re: Rapid / Feed override

Hi Francois, I'm not sure I understand. But you can select FRO Rapid or Feed by executing Screen Script from a C Program. Here is an example to select Feed #include "KMotionDef.h" #define TMP 10 // which spare persist to use to transfer data #include "KflopToKMotionCNCFunctions.c" void main() { if (...

Re: Halt and safe Z move

Hi Laurence,

Thanks for posting back.

The files KMotionDef.h and PC-DSP.h list all available defines, variables, and functions for KFLOP. Note you can right click on an include file to open it in the next Thread.

Re: Drilling Cycles giving Error in 3+2 Axis operation

How it is correct, By rotation of part by 90 degrees, still we need to drill whole in actual z direction only right.? No, because you rotated the part the drill is now pointing in the Y direction, so you will need to drill in the Y direction. You might try changing the Plane to drill in the Y direc...

Re: Halt and safe Z move

Hi Laurence, Are you invoking this from Feedhold or Halt or ?? It might be a race condition. You should not command a Move while a Job is running and moving the Axis. The Code initiates a Feedhold and tells KMotionCNC to Halt. The DoPC Command will return after KMotionCNC has accepted the Halt Comma...
