Hi all,

Some time ago I started working with CNC machine. It is managed by LinuxCNC with gmoccapy.

I have made some macros that are helping me (resetting axis, tool change and measure etc.).

The problem is that the simplest and shortest macro is not ending, I must stop it manually by clicking icon. The source code of it is under. Macro shuld reset X and Y in G54 in the position it is. It is doing this but isn't ending.
o<zerujxy> sub

G92.1
G92.2
G40

G10 L20 P0 X0 Y0

o<zerujxy> endsub 
m2

Maybe you have any ideas why it isn't working as I expect.

Pawel

Hallo Pawel,

that is a known problem. It is caused because your code does not make a machine move, so the interpreter does not get busy and after that idle again. But the GUI needs the "interpreter gets idle" signal to know the macro has ended.

The solution is as simple as the problem ;)
because this is gmoccapy :)

Just enter after the G10 command a new line
G4 P0.1

That causes the interpreter to stop for 0.1 seconds and get idle again.

I will add that one to the known problems in the documentation. I hope you do not mind if I take your example code.

Hallo Norbert,

Thanks for response. I'll notice this. I haven't any idea about the problem but now everything is working as I expect. :)

Of course you can use the code. :)

Thanks, Pawel
