Hi John

Could you possibly assist me. I am trying to get the arc buddy 1.3 to assist me to generate g-code for my cnc machine. As soon as I enter all the parameters I need on the GUI and try to exit and send it to Axis, the transfer of G-code does not happen. I have tried the others like Face and drill and they all work. After a while of having the time circle (progress circle running) I stop the GUI and get the following message "File ended with no percent sign or program end".

I see that in the website was two link for arc buddy and I cannot get any of the two to work.

I am a beginner at this. Is there maybe something that I might be missing or is there maybe another version available?

Thank you

Just to be sure you opened arcbuddy.py from Axis?

I'll check it out and see what it is doing.

Hi John

Yes, precisely the way that is explained on the website. I also found now that the engrave.py does the same.

Thank you

For starters there is a typo in the WriteToAxis code... and it only outputs the arc code so it will not be a complete program ie there is no M2 or starting point.

Be Back in a Bit.

Ok, download 1.4. I've fixed the send to Axis button to be a tad useful however there is no Z...

The engraving ones are Lawrence's work... what does engrave-11.py do?

Hi John

Thank you very much, it seems to work now 100%. Appreciate it.

Maybe just a remark. I see the cutter does not clear the arc when finished with the cutting. Suggestion if I could maybe to just clear the work piece after cutting.

I will test the others now and get back if I see some other errors.

Thank you

Hi John

The following gives me the same error as before on the arc buddy about the no percent sign and program end:
1. boltcircle2
2. counterbore
3. drill
4. engrave-11

The ones not mentioned works correct.

Kind regards

Yes Arc Buddy was never intended to actually generate a working program only to generate the arc that you would cut and paste into your G code.
