Bug report in Beta 3.1.1


Art Eckstein <a_eckstein@...>
 

JJ,
I was finally able to get some time to do some testing of the new
3.1.1 beta and am "As happy as a pig in stink" :-)

Now to report a couple of minor problems:
In producing the G-code for the drill files, the output files for
Turbocnc do NOT include a "F" for the feed rate in the G82 code

In producing the file for the top and bot files, it again does NOT
include a "F" for the feed rate in the G01 codes

In other words, it outputs a :

G82 X-0.2000 Y1.6000 Z-0.0750 5.00 R0.0200 P0.100000

instead of the required

G82 X-0.2000 Y1.6000 Z-0.0750 F5.00 R0.0200 P0.100000

and it is the same for the G01 lines in the *bot.nc and *top.nc files.

Thanks for producing this setup, now I will be able to include my
routines as soon as this gets chased down.

Thanks for the bug report Art!

I'll get this fixed and uploaded posthaste.
In the meantime, please edit your gcode-defaults.h. Look for this near the top of the file:

//
// Format strings for coordinates, etc.
//
string FORMAT = "%-6.4f "; /* coordinate format */
string FR_FORMAT = "%-5.2f "; /* feedrate format */
string IJ_FORMAT = "I" + FORMAT + "J" + FORMAT;
string EOL = "&#92;n"; /* standard line ending */
string PARAM = "P"; /* some use P, some # for parameters */

Change the
string FR_FORMAT = "%-5.2f "; /* feedrate format */
to
string FR_FORMAT = "F%-5.2f "; /* feedrate format */

FYI, If you change the GCode Style from the setup program, your gcode-defaults.h will be overwritten, and you will need to make this change again.

Thanks,
JJ

Help everyone. If you can't do that, then at least be nice.

JJ,
Thanks for the quick response!

I made the change to the gcode-defaults.h file AND went ahead and did
the same to the turbocnc.pp file. Then ran a test after doing a
setup and it worked as advertised.

Now to get off my duff and do the changes that i want for the various
files:}) This ought to be "fun"
