Quick Turn Tool Type option

Anyone know why the Tool Type option is greyed out? I'm sure I used to be able to change it.

Re: Novaturn won't connect

Thanks for quick reply. 1 Drivers are installed. 2 I tried both machines from the select machine menu but didn't check they matched in the parameters. Hopefully it will be that. How do you know if its the NovaTurn or NovaTunNS or is it a case of try both and see? 3 will check this also. Will update ...

Novaturn won't connect

Hi All. I am having an issue trying to connect to an upgraded to USB nova turn using VR turning. It seems it is still trying to connect using the RS232 and searching com ports rather than looking at the USB port. I am told it has worked previously so am I just missing a setting somewhere? Thanks for...

Feedrate Override

Hi all.
I connect and can home the novamill but as soon as I try jog this pops up. The pots are inactive so cant just turn them up. Can anybody shed any light on it, I must just be overlooking something dead simple?

Re: Phoenix Magnum Router Control Software

Is there anyone still at Denford that used to deal with the supplier of these machines? According to Bizapedia the company still exist but there doesn't seem to be a web site or any contact info for them.

Re: Triac. "cannot connect to machine"

I used the Triac around 2 months ago and it worked perfectly. I am guessing its just a coincidence that I recently moved the machine. Ok so now I've removed both boards and re seated them, replaced the battery, checked all fuses, removed and replaced all cables, tried another working RS232 cable and...

Re: Triac. "cannot connect to machine"

Checked the battery it was giving out 1.3 should be 2.4 So swapped it and am now getting the following sequence. nothing for about a minute, 0, .L. stays on .L for about 30 seconds.
Does anyone know what the sequence should be and what the other sequences mean?

Re: Triac. "cannot connect to machine"

Thanks for the reply I have checked all pins and they are all good.
I have noticed now the sequence has changed to , 0, .L, 8 it stays on 8 for around 25 seconds then goes off.
Anyone know if a flat battery might be the problem and how can i check it?

I have opened up the "mystery" black box and checked fuses, or at least the 6 that I can find. They are all OK but I did no...

Re: Arc converted to straight lines.

Are you importing dxf into 2d design? it is at this point the arcs are broken into separate lines. Can you not draw in 2d design? There is a patch from techsoft that will allow you to output .fnc file directly from 2d design.

Re: Arc converted to straight lines.

bit late now i suppose.
What CAD software are you using? I think it is the conversion to dxf that causes the problem and not VR milling. You need a CAD program that can directly output a .fnc file.
