Re: [mach1mach2cnc] Re: Version R1.001 online.
Strange, mine repeats the program fine. Does the grenn light beside the
repeat box go on when you enter a repeat value? This indicates the program
knows to repeat when M30 is hit...
Also, your repeat controls are not on the first "program run" page? Mine
I probably screwed up something, I will recompile a new verison.....

When you enter the repeat count it does light the LED. However the
entered Z-inhibit value is not effective. There seems to be two or
maybe three "stores" for this value. The On/Off button on screen is
reflected in the Configure Logic dialog but setting a Z-inhibit DRO
value does not appear in Configure Logic (although changing Z-
inhibit on Configure Logic does update the DRO). Mach2 seems to use
the Configure Logic one when handling Z moves and M30 counts down
the repeat count but does not update either Z-inhibit value. I.e.
the Configure Logic control, which was 0 at load time, does not
change and the DRO does not change from its initialised value of -
1.0. So the tool runs round the rectangle at Z=0 the specified
repeat count number of times.
A final observation - Mach2 has just dropped pulse rate to 100 again
in middle of these tests. Reloaded OK but repeats are still a

Yup, I probably screwed up something again. I will remove the multiple
referances to the Safe_z and Inhibit variables to see if this corrects it.
The pule dropping to 100 confuses me....
I will look into this tonight...
