I think it would be tomorrow, but they aren't doing that for december
so if I wind up going, it will either be between xmas and new years, or january 19
SWPadnos_ is now known as SWPadnos
ok, this seems too blatent to be a real bug, what am I missing
I click on X, hit home axis, X display goes to zero and the home icon appears
click on Z, hit home axis, Y display goes to zero and the home icon appears
why is there even a Y on the screen in a lathe config?
IMO a Y[axis_1] axis section has to be in the ini.
there is such a section in the ini
I assumed that it would be ignored tho
I'm also getting very very annoyed with the interpreter reset when you change from manual to MDI
* jmkasunich is getting a taste of being a user instead of a developer
jmkasunich, are you using lathe mode in AXIS?
oh - isn't the second axis lebelled Z?
hmmm - actually, the "AXES" variable may need to say "X Z"
you mean COORDINATES ?
AXES is a number
ok - then COORDINATES
I could have sworn I copied this config from nist-lathe or something like that, but I could be mistaken, might have copied stepper-inch
in the nist lathe config, AXES = 3 and COORDINATES = XYZ
ditto for lathe-pluto
I guess I wait for cradek - he has used lathe alot
it should say AXES = 3 and COORDINATES = X Z
er, rather, it COULD say that
AXES = 3
COORDINATES = X Z
^^ this is what my config looks like currently
I have the display part, and axes = 3
but coords says X Y Z
both sample lathe configs have that (nist-lathe, and pluto-lathe)
I'll try the fix here, and if it works I'll fix the samples
do you have an [AXIS_1] section in your ini file?
I do, with dummy data
no I don't
[DISPLAY]LATHE=1 is what replaces Y with Dia
all of this is in a state of fux so it depends a lot on what version you're using
probably 2.2.2 I guess
state of fux eh?
