    Sticky: Hello couch, Yes, that is the correct syntax for...

    Hello couch,
    Yes, that is the correct syntax for Macro A and is equivalent to the Macro B statement #2010=#5023.

    At what point is the PS010 error being raised. If when G65 is executed, it means...

    Hello Antarctica,
    I say "one shot" because when you initialize the memory, the parameters for RS232 comms are automatically set at the control to the Fanuc defaults of:

    Xon Xoff Handshake

  3. Hello TheFunk, If the program originally ran in...

    Hello TheFunk,
    If the program originally ran in M04 Mode and it was to cut a RH Thread, then the setup would be as suggested by FredC. A RH Threading Tool Holder would be set in the turret with the...
  4. Hello TheFunk, Irrespective of the configuration...

    Hello TheFunk,
    Irrespective of the configuration of your machine, Spindle in M03 Mode and Threading from Left to Right (away from the chuck) will always result in a LH Thread. As mentioned in my...
  5. Hello Antarctica, Yes. The bit that you missed,...

    Hello Antarctica,
    Yes. The bit that you missed, is that I stated to get correct Format for the parameters to be uploaded to the sick control, first dump (as in download from) the parameters from...
  6. Hello TheFunk Programs don't just change...

    Hello TheFunk
    Programs don't just change themselves and this program will clearly cut a LH Thread. Is it for sure that its supposed to be a RH Thread?

    To make the program cut a RH Thread, change...

    Hello Dan,
    If this is to be a permanent arrangement, actually write the finish allowance into your part program. If only a one, or few off arrangement and the same tool is used where 0.25mm is to...
  8. Hello Antarctica, If you end up initialize all...

    Hello Antarctica,
    If you end up initialize all the memory, you get a one shot chance of downloading the parameters to the control via an RS232 connection. The comms protocol are set at the control...

    Hello kentd,
    What do your mean by "off the table height"? Are you using the face of the table as the reference plane? Even when setting the Tool Length Offsets manually, without an integrated Tool...
  10. Hello Douglas, The only difference would be the...

    Hello Douglas,
    The only difference would be the tolerance of the Gauge Line of the spindle, normally quite small; particularly with machines of like manufacture. It would really be no difference...
  11. Hello Orange Vise, What you're suggesting would...

    Hello Orange Vise,
    What you're suggesting would not work at all. In your example, 20.8891 is being subtracted from a value that is registered in a Tool Length Offset, when what needs to occur is to...

    I'm not sure of the system used on the Mini Cooper in the factory, but the majority of Clear over Base systems use a single pack base and a two pack clear. The base is only applied sufficient for...

    Hello SRF, G00 can't be used inside Polar...

    Hello SRF,
    G00 can't be used inside Polar Interpolation. You get the alarm because the "C" axis component of the Feed Rate exceeds the value set in parameter 1422. If it won't harm the tool, you...
  14. As you would probably know, when a tolerance...

    As you would probably know, when a tolerance value is set in Parameter #3410, the control compares the radius from the start point of the arc to the arc centre, with the radius from the end point of...
  15. Using a number of G04s, even just a number of...

    Using a number of G04s, even just a number of EOB's strung together, is a technique that harks back to the day when it wasn't realized that G31/G53 worked to halt Look Ahead. Many features that are...
  16. Hello dandrummerman21, You would have to use...

    Hello dandrummerman21,
    You would have to use your example code being called as either a Local Subprogram, but not using M97 as suggested by RedBarn, if a Fanuc Control (that just won't work), or if...

    M97 you didn't! I tried all that rubbish years ago, simply to show clients a better way than hacks.
  18. Hello cc22288, System Variables aren't displayed...

    Hello cc22288,
    System Variables aren't displayed in Variable Pages like Local and Common Variables are. If you physically want to view the value of a System Variable, you need to read it from the...
  19. Hello dandrummerman21, You can use the System...

    Hello dandrummerman21,
    You can use the System Variable Timer in a Macro Statement to write the time result to a variable. I wouldn't use a Common, Nonvolatile Variable (#500 and above) so that the...

    Your comments smacks of "All Hat and No Cattle", or "All Gong and No Dinner".

    The better question to ask is:
    Have YOU tried this with a Fanuc Control, the subject control of this Thread?

    There are two types of bonds between the various layers of paint; Chemical and Mechanical. Many paints today can have subsequent layers of paint applied via the method referred to as "Wet on Wet"....

    Well, you can wish in one hand and shit in the other and see which one fills up the quickest. What you're suggesting is baloney. You're going to jump to another area of the program, execute that...

    That was simply an example of the use and why positioning of the code to halt look ahead in the Macro Statements is important.

    When any Macro program will run successfully in Single Block but not...

    If G31 and G53 aren't having the desired result, it's because they're being used in the wrong location; your method is a clumsy way of creating a function to do what G31/G53 do. They have to be...
