Re: CSS on Lathe

Hi Tom,
On a note unrelated to your problem I believe the KMotionCNC | Tool Setup | Trajectory Planner | Threading | Spindle axis is incorrectly set to 3 instead of 7.
So its not were i have the encoder connected to on the Kanalog board?

Re: CSS on Lathe

I found one issue, in the MySpindleDefs header file. I had the wrong axis. Had 3 because i was thinking of the spindle encoder is connected to axis 3 inputs. :roll: I changed it to 7 which is the output for spindle, but nothing has changed, still does same thing i described in previous post.

Re: Lathe Tool Z offset

Hi Tom, No worries about delay. :) Yes it is still an issue. Currently i have a work around. Iam replacing the M6 with a M0 and executing my M0 c code that does an MDI "M0". Obviously there is no pop up message but at least this way the Gcode will stop for a tool change. Tried your updated ccode and...
