  1. Re: [TNGv2] - Wireless handwheel (MPG pendant)

    Sounds like it'll work all CNCs then. You should let the seller know.
  2. Re: [TNGv2] - Wireless handwheel (MPG pendant)

    Wouldn't have thought so because it says it's for Mach 3.

    Re: TNG Progress

    Is G76 implemented, because TNG v2 is throwing this error - "Word 'I' without command that uses it"

    EXAMPLE CODE:

    Re: Lathe thread

    This code will cut a single-start thread.

    It does not work with the current release of TNG as this version doesn't support G76, but should be OK with CNC USB & TNG 2017 beta software.

    I think...

    Re: TNG Progress

    Don't you have to release a new version to remove bugs in the old one?

    Re: TNG Progress

    I'm going to speculate that rewriting the G41/G42 code is quite a complex task, so that's what's holding things up.
    At the same time, I'm hoping that screwcutting (G76) is completely sorted out, now.
  7. Re: Fusion 360/Planet CNC Post Processor Issue

    PlanetCNC TNG is compatible with LinuxCNC, so should run code that runs on that controller.

    I use gcode on my Mach3 powered mill that is generated for use with TNG, that so far, has worked...

    Re: G32 and Feed per Rev Issues

    Quick update.

    I got the RPM figure wrong - the feed cuts out if the spindle is much above 350 rpm.

    Re: G32 and Feed per Rev Issues

    If I select 'From Index' in the Settings Menu I get perfect RPM readings up to the lathe's maximum speed.

    G32 and Feed per Rev Issues

    I've just used these gcodes for the first time in TNG and came across a few oddities.

    Firstly, when using G32 or G95 I found that TNG wouldn't start to feed the tool if the spindle happened to be...

    Re: Dual motor gantry homing?

    Can't wait. I'm very pleased with TNG, it's proving to be reliable and smoooooth!
    When is G76 (screwcutting) going to be up & running again?

    Thank you for listening.

    I'm still very pleased with my PlanetCNC setup - TNG is great software.

    I couldn't disagree more when you say the idea is useless.

    The problem with having only the current option, is that there is no easy way to reassure the operator that the various toolpaths have...

    Where's the ViaCAD/Shark forum gone?

    The title says it all.

    We had a forum here for a week or so and now it's gone - why is that?
