Re: Zero Work Offsets using Probe

Hi EondeK, I'm sorry for missing this post and misleading you. You are correct the PC_COMM_SET_X command always changes the G92 offset. The Fixture Offsets are saved in the GCode Vars and can be modified there. There is a SetFixtureZ.c example of how to do this. I've also pasted it below. #include "...

Re: Zero Work Offsets using Probe

Hi EondeK, DoPCFloat(PC_COMM_SET_X,0.0); Should perform the same operation as the "Set" button on the main KMotionCNC Screen. The "Set" button on the KMotionCNC Screen can be configured to either change the current fixture offset or the global G92 offsets. Which do you have KMotionCNC configured to ...

Re: Power up Reset (low true) output

Hi SL,

It’s not normally required but you are correct it can be used to reset your electronics or you can GND the pin to force a reset.

Re: Distance to Go DROs

Hi Troy,

No we haven’t added distance to go. It would be somewhat difficult because of the look ahead, buffering, and combining and filtering of blocks.

Either forum is fine. There might be more help and exposure at cnczone.

Hi Jon, chan[Z].Position=( ... setting to 1" with math... ); Which I think is the "offending" call that is actually re-setting Machine Z to 1". Is that indeed what that does? Yes And then, as your first link / thread suggests: DoPCFloat( ...also set to 1" using math... ); Which it sounds like only r...

Re: Are Soft Limits relative not absolute?

Hi Jon,

Yes that is changing the Machine Coordinate Position.

You might read this Thread on how to use the "Set DRO" function.

I don't fully understand your process but you can configure KMotionCNC to modify Fixture or G92 offsets. See Here.

Re: Are Soft Limits relative not absolute?

Hi Jon, The Soft Limits are in absolute machine coordinates. But you must take care to set/zero machine coordinates in your Home program and then never do anything to shift or change them. Setting GCode offsets should not change machine coordinates. There is an option to display Machine Coordinates ...

Re: KMotionCNC Check Box

Hi SL,

You can use the KMotionCNC Screen Editor to add a toggle button, then test the associated IO bit from a C Program.

Re: Help! PWM 0-10V.

Hi Grod45,

Sorry I don’t understand your question. KFLOP itself doesn’t have any Analog inputs. Normally you will need a PC running Windows.

Re: Set CNC Axis Position

Hi SL,

You should be to do this with the command:
DoPCFloat(PC_COMM_SET_Z,xxxxxx);

Where xxxxxx is the offset height.

See the KFLOPtoPCCmdExamples.c example
