    Re: Set Start line (;-)

    Sure it does!

    Run on my PathPilot:

    Re: Another pendant question

    My point is that it's highly unlikely that the nitty gritty of integrating the pendant actually changes much, other than it has to be re-applied in the right place. The re-application in the right...

    Re: Another pendant question

    It should be possible to make a patch that works "for almost all new versions."
    The trick would be to get some user-installed code to run on start-up, and that code can check whether the patch is...

    Re: PathPilot and NO run from here function

    I agree that a "run/continue from here" that walks through the modal state and applies all the right bits to continue would be valuable!

    Re: DIY Stand

    The stand is fairly heavy gauge (I'd guess 16 gauge or better) and has a few metal bars in important reinforcing areas. The edges are all broken/rolled so it gets its stiffness from being assembled...
  7. Re: Tormach PCNC 1100 running Mach3 loses Z-axis zero at the start of an operation

    This is not maintenance based, but it may be tool table offset based. If you set the zero manually after each tool change, then you should make sure the tool table contains "0" for "tool length" for...

  9. Re: Series 1 (with updates) X axis cable connector

    I think the drawings are available on the Tormach web site?
    Otherwise I imagine you can call them. If you do, please post the answer here :-)

    Just the fact that someone has already turned it on and verified it works, is probably worth $100 by itself :-D

    Re: Help with a dead path pilot control

    You should be able to find some Ryzen CPUs and X399 or similar motherboards from two years ago still in the market, and the Linux kernel should have fine drivers for that.
    It may be that the kernel...
  12. Re: Dropbox using more memory than chrome now

    A lot of the "memory used" reports are somewhat uncertain, because there's a lot of code that needs to be "ready" in case it's needed, and thus is pre-loaded. As long as it's not used, it doesn't...

    Re: Alternate screen open with path pilot?

    To see the installed CPU:


    cat /proc/cpuinfo

    Note that it will print one verbose dump per core. Mine (2 year old PP 2) is a dual-core Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU G4400 @ 3.30GHz

    Re: Alternate screen open with path pilot?

    Fusion runs on Windows and Mac, not on Linux. GWizard might be possible to run on Linux, because it uses Air, but I don't think Bob/CNC supports that.

    I imagine you could also do this with different tool numbers for different cutters in the CAM, or by using tool wear offset in the controller?

    Yes; this is one of the ways that import tariffs hurt US export businesses.
    Free trade was a mistake! Mercantilism at its finest! Forbid the export of gold bullion! Who's with me?

    Re: G-code editor

    I use gedit on the Linux box that runs PathPilot.

    Note that PathPilot supports the full LinuxCNC language, which lets you declare and use variables right in the code.

    Re: Electronic tool setter NC?

    Yes, you can update PP.
    Either update the Python code that controls the tool setting routine, or update the low-level LinuxCNC pin definitions to add an inverter to the pin.

    Re: Slant-Pro Re-Sale Value ?

    This is the land of the free market. The way to get in line is to say "I offer <$7500+X>"

    If I had the space, I'd make an offer, but sadly, no.

    Re: Computer won't wake up. GGrrrr...

    Honestly, you might need to put in a new hard drive, and THEN re-install.
    Tormach doesn't make it very easy, because they ship the drive pre-installed.
    Perhaps you can buy the $20 USB "upgrade" to...
