I have been using this Pro60x60 for a couple of years with no issues. Recently upgraded Mach4 (hobby) to 22.214.171.12436 build 5036 which seemed fine at first.
When I do a tool change (no ATC) Mach4 stops, flashes the usual red box waiting for me to hit ‘Cycle Start’. This only happens when the previous tool is different, which is what I expect. What I don’t expect is to hit ‘Cycle Start’ confirming tool change and Mach4 skips the spindle speed and M3 command (start)…
Here is the start of the Code, from Fusion using the Avid plugin
(T32 D=0.125 CR=0. - ZMIN=-0.2461 - FLAT END MILL)
G90 G94 G91.1 G40 G49 G17
(-ATTENTION- PROPERTY SAFE RETRACTS IS SET TO CLEARANCE HEIGHT.)
(ENSURE THE CLEARANCE HEIGHT WILL CLEAR THE PART AND OR FIXTURES.)
(RAISE THE Z-AXIS TO A SAFE HEIGHT BEFORE STARTING THE PROGRAM.)
G17 G90 G94
G0 X0.4816 Y3.5725
Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated.
If I move the above code into MDI and run it, works fine.
Save this code set to a TAP or GCODE file, load it, run it… if fails.
