How to setup a Turn270PRO tooling and workshift

Post by Steve » Wed 22 Mar , 2023 11:35 am

Attached is a Powerpoint download showing how to configure the software and set offsets for a Turn270PRO.

This is a video record of setting up the machines while holding a phone in one hand so a bit shakey but good content

The file seems to be incomplete or corrupt as initial download indicates 1.4 Gb but only about 60Mb downloads before completion and the resulting ZIP file is said to be invalid.

Steve,

Can you post the ZIP file size as I downloaded it again and no joy. The file fails to unzip on Win10 with a 'failed to create file or directory' error and similar on an iMac. My Ubuntu Linux machine gives and 'unexpected end of file' error. Never had any issues downloading files from the forum before but if I know the precise file size I can check if something is going wrong with the download.

Steve,

I got it in the end and it is 1.5Gb which was the issue. It seems large transfers such as that can often be problematic and may fail due to network issues. With Firefox I was getting about 64Mb consistently before it failed, a neighbour got about 325Mb with Windows before it dropped the connection. In the end I used 'curl -C - -O https://www.denfordata.com/downloads/Se ... 270Pro.zip' in a terminal and it came down OK, previously tried without the '-C -' and it got to about 710Mb before dropping. The '-C -' option tells it to continue where it left off. I don't know if there's an equivalent command for the Windows prompt.

Thanks for letting me know. I realised its a large file but the order of setting things made it worth storing this way.
