Re: Switchspoil Issue, Please Help.

Will, The way I found out there was another way was the "old way" of changing the M999 wasn't having any affect on the tool measures. When you are at the machine open up the digital version of the operators manual, I think it's under the top tab far right tab. Type in "Switchspoil&quo...

Re: Switchspoil Issue, Please Help.

Just curious, how do you change it? Through the M999 macro or in the Machine Variables table under the edit tab? Or other?

Re: Switchspoil Issue, Please Help.

Problem Corrected. For any others behind the learning curve like myself.... Apparently since the last time I have flycut the spoil board perhaps there has been a controller update that has changed the way to alter the SWITCHSPOIL. After looking at the digital version of the operators manual in the c...

Re: Switchspoil Issue, Please Help.

Hi Brad, Thanks for your reply. The following statement is my situation: "Alternatively, you may have never been using the ACTSPOIL and ORGSPOIL variables. If so, then they would/should have identical values in your M999 and then instead, you may be replying solely on the SWITCHSPOIL value, in ...

Re: Switchspoil Issue, Please Help.

What does "re-sizing the machine" mean?

My change this time was via notepad and a shortcut I had saved on the desktop the last time we changed the setting.

Switchspoil Issue, Please Help.

Hi Folks, I flycut my main spoil board and was going to adjust the switch on the tool sensor. When I search for M999 it takes me to the macro. There I changed the switchspoil value and hit save. BUT, when I measure the tools afterwards the daylight is not changing. It seems that the M999 I changed i...

Re: Part Editor: Importing DXF circles to make holes

Never mind, I see. For others doing this for first time: A geometric shape (circle in my case) that is created in part editor uses the cut geometric shape right click option to pocket or cut through.

Re: Off Fall iregular?

Is the upper "off fall" really off fall? Did you get a label for both pieces of off fall or only the lower one in the pic?

Re: Lock Dado w/ Pocket Screw. Spot hole w/ fixed shelf?

Thanks Scott,

You really went way and beyond on that. Thanks.
At least I know what to do. Or not to do. Or....
