Re: G Code Viewer Not Showing Toolpaths

Hi Igor, This is somewhat complicated to explain. But there are basically two GCode approaches: #1 with RTCP/kinematics and #2 without RTCP/kinematics. Let's consider an example where we would like to engrave a groove around a cylinder's surface pointed in the X direction. Groove.png #1 To cut the G...

Re: Deviation observed on 3+2 axis CNC milling setup.

Hi Wilson, I've attached an image with this reply, I hope it gives you a bit more insight. Its still not clear what faces are machined in what order. Please put more effort into your explanations. I would describe that as an offset not a pitch. The bore is offset from the faces. If you were to make ...

Re: Stuck at the start on servo tuning w/ Youtube video.

Hi Dave, Breakthrough! So I think finally rooted out why I was having so many issues with the machine retaining my settings. My understanding based on the wording was that the save, compile, download, and run button on the C program page was a "do-all" button that updated the C-program on the K-flop...

Re: G Code Viewer Not Showing Toolpaths

Hi Igor,

The GCode in the screen shot seems different than the file you sent me. When I view the file in Mach3 I get something different.

Please send the same file you used in Mach3 and post how you have Mach3 configured.

Re: Single KSTEP STEP/DIR from JP26 & JP36

My understanding is: the Step/DIR signals coming into the KSTEP from both JP26 and JP36 are connected to each other somewhere (typically not intended for both connectors to be present I assume?). correct So If using signals from JP26 (but still with JP36 connected to the KFLOP) the common pins beco...

Re: G Code Viewer Not Showing Toolpaths

Hi Igor,

What are you expecting?

What kind of machine is this?

Do you have kinematics?

How is KMotionCNC Configured?

How is the GCode Viewer Configured?

Re: Faulty G-Code (maybe)

Hi Giancarlo, Since it is repeatable it should be straightforward to track down. Since it shows in the commanded trajectory it shouldn't be dependent on any hardware. So you should be able to disconnect all hardware, set following errors to infinity, no watchdog, etc and still observe the problem. I...

Re: 3D printable case for kflop + kanalog (or step files for boards)

Hi boss4,

I'm not aware of any 3D models for enclosures.

There are some 3D Models for some boards in the wiki.

Re: Single KSTEP STEP/DIR from JP26 & JP36

Hi, The Step/Dir signals on JP26 and JP36 are simply wired in parallel. If signals are fed into JP26 with JP36 also connected to KFLOP then the common pins on KFLOP should be left as Inputs and not otherwise configured as Step/Dir Pins. The pins are diode clamped to the 3.3V supply so should not be ...

Re: Exit C program on Halt or Feed Hold

Hi Laurence,

You can check if a Feed Hold has been commanded (Halt should also issue a feedhold) with:
