  • repeating toolpath files


    i am making 100+ of a part, with material changes between each cut job. been trying to expedite the "pit stop" between cuts. i figure that the restart CTRL-R command coud be used here. first of all the viewing box is so small, the long directory path barely lets me see the name of the toolpath to repeat, but it is obviously the last toolpath ran. i make sure it is selected, and hit OK. it runs a few lines of code, asks me to hit ENTER, than comes back and says finished without actually running the toolpath.

    there are 2 boxes always checked, restore vertical axis, and wait for user, i think. should i be checking something else? any help would be appreciated.. thank in advance, tim

    sorry, there is very little in the WINcnc manual on this.

    Hit the TAB key and ENTER and it will repeat the last file.
