Strange movements at start of g-code files

Postby b57378 » Wed Oct 14, 2020 9:30 pm

Hi all, have a bit of an issue not too sure if it's a bug or on my side.

I am running a uc400eth on version 2,112, (I realise this is a test version so it could possibly be the problem).

The system has been running flawlessly for as long as I have been using this test release but occasionally at the start of loading a new g-code file and pressing cycle after zeroing, the machine will rapid to random x- y positions and then return to the zero point and start the job as usual.

This problem is not g-code specific as it usually only ever occurs when rezeroing and loading different g-code files.

I am running a custom toolchanging macro but as I stated, this occurs in the beginning of the file, before an m6 or m31 is even called.

I am also running the uccnc atc arcs post processor.

Does this issue seem like a bug that a test release would create or could it be something else going on?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Post your g-code, because that's what most likely is doing it.

Will do, but as I've said the problem isn't linked to one specific g-code file and is not repeatable.

For example if it happens with a file and I run it for a second time it will not do it again.

Try 2.113.
You should always try the latest version before making any bug reports, especially when using test versions.

OK noted, just thought someone may have experienced something similar.
