Please give a brief description of what it is and how it works.

MACROLOOP >> MACRO B VARS Populate for UCCNC

MACRO B VARS MACROLOOP for UCCNC

This is just my interpretation of what may be useful from the Fanuc Macro B variables (vars) which also follow Mach3/4 {YMMV}

My intention is to use it with Macro wizards to keep track of and reset the machine back to the original machine and work co-ordinates (allows you to use G92 and also G91 for the wizard gcode and go back to the same machine and work co-ordinates, spindle speed {if you need or are using it} or feedrate, rotation etc should you change it.

Word of CAUTION.... it will ONLY work with the current development release which incorporates exec.Modalcodes and makes it easier (IMO) to extract the modal modes than using
Code: Select all
AS3.Getfield(877); // Field 877: Activemodal;


As per discussed here
viewtopic.php?f=11&t=1734

It WILL throw an error if you run it on anything prior to the current development release (2.108).... but hey that's where all the new + good stuff is at the cutting edge of the release

Code: Select all
// MACRO B VARS MACROLOOP for UCCNC

double Rx, Ry, RAngle; // Rotation coordinates

while(loop)
{
   if (AS3.Getbuttonstate(144)) // if machine is in reset no point in trying to update the variables
   {
      Thread.Sleep(50);
   }
   else // MACHINE NOT IN RESET / E-STOP, UPDATE VALUES.
   {
   
   if (!exec.IsMoving())  // no point updating on the fly as the frontend does not actually know where the machine tool actually is because of the comms buffer, and macroloop timing.  These values are not updated in macroB during motion either.

Revised + added to the Macroloop a little......

Tip: exec.Code() is not recommended for a macroloop.... IMO

Code: Select all
// MACRO B VARS MACROLOOP for UCCNC
// 13/01/2019
//Robertspark

string strFRO;
string strSSO;
char[] charsToTrim = { '%', ' ' };

while(loop)

   if (AS3.Getbuttonstate(144)) // if machine is in reset no point in trying to update the variables
   {
      Thread.Sleep(50);
   }
   else // MACHINE NOT IN RESET / E-STOP, UPDATE VALUES.
   {
   
   if (!exec.IsMoving())  // no point updating on the fly as the frontend does not actually know where the machine tool actually is because of the comms buffer, and macroloop timing.  These values are not updated in macroB during motion either.
      {
         exec.Setvar(exec.GetXmachpos() , 5021); // Machine (ABS) X coordinate

Hi Rob,

Did you mean
Code: Select all
      exec.Setvar(Convert.ToDouble(exec.Getcurrentgcodelinenumber()) , 4114); // Sequence Number (LINE) {N CODE}

instead of
Code: Select all
      exec.Setvar(Convert.ToDouble(exec.Getcurrgcodelinetext()) , 4114); // Sequence Number (LINE) {N CODE}

Thanks for reviewing, not sure, I'll have a look later this evening

(I didn't think I was going to use the N-code or O-code in wizards to reset back to the original values after the wizard has run.... I just put it in because it sort of populated the rest of the #41xx vars. as much as I could from the standard UCCNC exec.fields and or exec.variables )
https://www.cnczone.com/forums/attachme ... 992.attach)

The main ones to use were the machine + work co-ordinates + modal groups...... the stuff you may change if you are doing one thing with a wizard and may want to use G91, G41/G42, G51, G68 etc
