Single Block with Axis User Interface?

11 Feb 2017 12:46 #87811 by yeltrow
I have heard that the "single block" capability that exists in gmocapy is very useful and a machinist friend of mine recommended implementing it. Before I cut a button hole into my new panel, can I do that with the AxisUI, too. I couldn't find anything like that on any of the pins I saw.

If you mean execute next line the Right Arrow looking button in Axis does that.

if your control panel doesn't imitate keyboard strokes (so AXIS thinks you pressed the Right Arrow key),
you could use halui to do single-block toggling.
IIRC one annoyance is one has to be 'paused' before single block (with halui) works - it wont pause a running program.
There are ways around that to. (hmm maybe we should fix that it sounds like a bug)

I'll also mention that 'single block' is a bit of a lie in linuxcnc.
There are many blocks that are run together before the next step.
IIRC Ocode subroutines are considered 'one single block' and I think mcodes are not considered single blocks.

But in basic gcode programs all axis movement lines will run one at a time.
Just so you are prepared :)
