Flip Op jig?

Postby Terry Davis » Wed, Feb 13 2008, 2:43PM

When the tech set up our machine we cut our own jig out of plywood, now we want to make a new one and don't know where he entered the X,Z values for the G902 location, I remember him block stepping on something then entering the values?

The X and Y values for the G902 fence location are stored in the M999 macro. To change these numbers, you need to load the M999 macro on the screen. Start off with a blank file and then add a line of text that has "M999" in it. make sure your grey cursor is on that line and then press the "block step +" button. The macro should open for you then. Find the section that looks like the area below. Once you edit the XG901 and the YG901 values, you need to page down to the end of the macro so your cursor in on the line of code that says "M99". Once you have your cursor on this code you will press the "block step +" button again and then answer "yes" to the starting in a new location question. This will save the changes to the macro. If you have any problems, you can call me at 1-800-221-3865 ext 245.

Thanks for the reply Dan, before you replied I found the M999 macro in the macros folder of the c drive, I opened it and made the changes there and saved the file, I don't know if that was the proper way but it seemed to have worked because the values where there when I did it your way.
