Hi Igor,

Here is the file you attached. It is different. Which one are you using?

The last correct, if you select any configuration file, the blinking does not disappear

Hi Igor,

I don't understand. Why did you send the file with the line still in?

You must re-boot KFLOP after removing the line.

The last, with the line removed! And the blinking problem persists on any other configuration files! Error should be ignored

Hi Igor,

Please put more effort into your responses. Respond completely to everything, not just one thing. otherwise things take much longer to solve.

Did you re-boot KFLOP after removing the line?

yes. What exactly do you mean by "download"?

Hi Igor,

I don't recall saying "download". Did you mean "re-boot"?

You might Flash "New Version" if you Flashed anything such as KStepPresent=TRUE to remove it. Did you ever Flash anything into KFLOP? We don't recommend ever doing this. To be absolutely sure Flash "New Version" to be sure KFLOP is in a default state.

Hi Tom thank you the blinking problem is gone. Did I understand correctly that every time you change your programs, you need to update Flash? I have very convenient scripts for mach 3. How do I implement this functionality in Kflop? Search for the center of the procurement, search for the angle, with output for each operator on a separate button. There are ready-made templates? And how to engage them. I worked for many years with mach 3, here decided to try your program, people say that one of the best available solutions.

Hi Igor,
Did I understand correctly that every time you change your programs, you need to update Flash?
No. You should never Flash User Programs. Only Flash New Version to keep KFLOP in a virgin default state every power up.

I have very convenient scripts for mach 3. How do I implement this functionality in Kflop? Search for the center of the procurement, search for the angle, with output for each operator on a separate button.
You would need to re-write those into KFLOP C Programs and assign the programs to Buttons in KMotionCNC.

Here is a great example written by Jeremy Brown. He has a link to the code in the comments.



Here is an updated Version (untested)

Code: Select all

#include "KMotionDef.h"
#define TMP 10					// which spare persist to use to transfer data
#include "..\KflopToKMotionCNCFunctions.c"

// Probe Example to find top, left, bottom of part

void MoveNorth(double distance);
void MoveSouth(double distance);
void MoveWest(double distance);
void MoveEast(double distance);
void MoveUp(double distance);
void MoveDown(double distance);

void MoveXToDest(double destination);
void MoveYToDest(double destination);

void ProbeDown();
void ProbeNorth();
void ProbeSouth();
void ProbeWest();
void ProbeEast();

// Globals
float xRes, yRes, zRes;

#define PROBEBIT 171			// #110
#define PROBESPEED 500.0f		// #111
#define XAXIS 0					// #112
#define YAXIS 1					// #113
#define ZAXIS 2					// #114
#define UPSPEED 2000.0f			// #115
#define DOWNSPEED (PROBESPEED * -1.0f)	// #116
#define WESTSPEED -1000.0f		// #117
