Great addition, exactly what I was trying to describe. I'll update and give it a go, thanks a lot!

A little update, I tried a new configuration both on Axis and Gmoccapy and I'm unable to run it. In Axis I get this error:


In Gmoccapy when I home the machine and I click on Change Consumables it get Bad character 'c' used

I'm not entirely sure I'm missing something, is someone else having problems?

Could you post your .ini file.

Edit: did you run the Configurator and do an Upgrade?

Edit2: in Axis there should have been "invalid consumable change feed rate" message just above the error you posted. Can you check the "BUTTON_n_CODE" line in your .ini that has "change-consumables" in it for "Fnnn"

Edit3: The button should not be enabled unless paused during a program. Can you check the you have "change-consumables" in the "BUTTON_n_CODE" line of the Gmoccapy .ini file.

Sure, here is the code. I made a profile using just the simulator, so I didn't use the PlasmaC configurator, both for Axis and Gmoccapy.
Also, I set up f to 1000 as shown in the example.

Thanks, I see the problem here as well.

I'm not sure what is causing it but while I work on it if you want to try it out temporarily, use button #1 and it works ok, any other button and it doesn't.

Edit: I missed these in the sims, you need to change [AXIS_X] and [AXIS_Y] to:
MIN_LIMIT               = -0.001
MAX_LIMIT               = 612.001
# set to double the value in the corresponding joint
MAX_VELOCITY = 500.0
# set to double the value in the corresponding joint
MAX_ACCELERATION = 5000.0
# shares the above two equally between the joint and the offset
OFFSET_AV_RATIO = 0.5

That's right, in Axis I changed to button 1 and now it opens. Weird enough, when I open a program, run it, pause it and click on the button 1, it doesn't seems to do anything or show an error.

Alternatively, in Gmoccapy when paused it stays grayed out

The Axis one won't do anything until you add the changes I put in the edit of the last post.

Right! Its working in the sim now, I'll add it aswell on Gmoccapy and check again

Edit: Gmoccapy still behaves as shown above

Great! I'm using a run in place installation, I will catch up tomorrow and test it out

Edit: I just updated my .ini with the PlasmaC Configurator and its all sorted out and working. Thanks!
