Ok.
So, basically the way to go is to migrate to Gmoccapy or other GUI?

Hi George,

If you mill setup has A axis configured would you try this demo and tell me if it looks right ? The tool rotates but the path looks strange. Is it normal ?

You could also try with axis_9axis.ini

Hi Fern,

I have a project underway on the mill right now so won't be able to try it for a few days. (4th axis not installed right now)

Where do I install the file? Will it give me a icon to pick it as other features do? I am using NativeCam quite a lot now but am pretty unfamiliar with the underlying structure and code.

Your work is extremely appreciated!
George

Then you should try it with axis_9axis.ini

This is basically a demo. Simply open it as a project. A few things will not look right because your lib is not updated.

Next release will be a MAJOR update

I have been trying to solve this on my own all night.. no avail :) I just installed NCam latest and configured it embedded.

I am getting this error no matter what I do.. I'm sure its something that I am doing or not setting correctly. I'm using the latest git pull from FernV github with linuxcnc 2.8~.

The error Im getting is "Named parameter #<_lead_out_fact> not defined"

I have:
a workpiece
a change tool
and a circle of .875

The tool Im using is .5 endmill.

Nothing odd about what I'm doing. I have tried a clean install of linuxcnc and NCam. This fails on either axis or gmoccapy.

I have checked and rechecked my setup. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

hi cncnoob


i have the same error with my machine.

i fixed it with "adding a g-code "

line 1 = #<_lead_out_fact> = 0 (you must try what is the best lead out mode for the thing you milling at the moment)

you can see the different modes in the dro.

hope i can help a bit

I have the similar problem on the LATHE part, it does not have an xml template so i just copied one that was close enough.
Basicaly that means that the named parameter is missing on the template.
Anyone got a working lathe template?
Mill and plasma work perfectly for me.

Sorry about this, I removed this parameter because it did not show very usefull but it seems the clean-up was not complete.

Use what was proposed by absolut15 for a quick fix :
Add gcode, line 1 = #<_lead_out_fact> = 0.5 (change the value at will)
GCode must be before your Circle

It is just a matter of a few days for a new major update, maybe this week-end

Hi Fern,
I did not have much luck getting the demo to run. Truth is that I have no experience yet with actually using a 4th axis with linuxcnc. The toolpath displays for 4th axis work are not something I have gotten a grasp of yet. I wish I could be of more help.

Andy Pugh has a 4th axis he has shown and also is far more experienced, maybe he could proof the NativeCam 4th axis operation.
