  • Move Points

    Using MR1 & MR2 on a Sheffield Discovery II.

    Always wondered about the /NORMAL in the MOVE code. I've seen CIRCULAR. What other not normal options do we have??

    Also tried using /MOVEALL and not sure but it doesn't work.
    I used to be high on life but I built up a tolerance.

    You can also create incremental and clearplane moves. I believe that would be the other options. Easiest way to find out is highlight it and use F8 to cycle through the available options.

      The NORMAL in move mode is relative to the part coord system.

      MOVEALL is move + probe angle change. I've found the best method for doing this is to change to the probe angle I want, then move it to where you want to go, then insert a MOVEALL command. Make sure you delete the first probe change command before the program is executed. For offline, I will insert a probe change command after the MOVEALL so when I run simulated program it will show my probe at the proper orientations.

        This will also toggle to RELEARN so you can teach a new move point, say to avoid a change in fixturing, when you run a program. It will prompt you to position the probe in the new location then when you say OKAY it inserts the new point into the program. It's somewhat handier than putting a pause in the program then moving the probe to the new location, getting coordinates from the readout window, then editing them in.
        Then again I guess that's for MOVE/POINT not the MOVE/ command.

        Is it okay to listen to AM radio in the afternoon?
