How to save screen shot ?

I need some screen shots of a situation.

The reason I ask is that when running a simple file with Plasma, THC, Arc OK with up / down signals.

When hitting Feedhold, the Plasma shuts off, THC yellow stays on, Coolant /M8 yellow stays on in the F2 screen.

But in F1 screen Coolant has been switched off as well as Plasma on / off signal.

If you hit cycle start, Plasma On comes on yellow but even though the Coolant yellow is on, the relay isn't fired.

Wouldn't you think that if a file had to held for whatever reason.

For maybe changing tips / low air pressure or whatever.

Why couldn't a cycle start be done and everything works again as per the initial file start again as it has been halted mid run.

If you hit Go to work origin, Rewind, Cycle start.

The M8 /Coolant doesn't work again until you have killed the yellow Coolant/ Flood icon in F2 screen.

Is this a normal situation ?

Cheers.

Hit PRINT SCREEN key on keyboard and MASSO saves a BMP file to the USB with the name in this format Print-Screen-001 where the number is incremented with each screen save.

Hi Lilow

Use the Print Screen key on your keyboard.

If you have a compact keyboard which does not have a Print Screen key you can use CTRL+P which will do the same.

Hi Lilow,

I haven't had any problems with how the Masso is running. The yellow will be standby mode and stops everything!

I can pause the program before it does a touch off, to remove a part flip up, or just to let the compressor rest for a while.

If it has a miss fire it is the same!

Cycle start and it will continue on its merry way again.




I zero out the plasma tip on the corner of the sheet of metal and have a laser pointer aimed on the Y beam of the table, a bit of tape with a cross drawn on it is placed where the laser hits the table, this gives the X Y zero for every time i turn on the Masso.

Good when nesting parts to be cut from SheetCam.

Now this is the other reason for this!

If some thing goes wrong like a crash or like the other day it didn't lift after a cut and i couldn't restart it, plus the home wouldn't work so i had to turn off the Masso and restart, home, load file and zero out the laser to the cross on the tape. then did a start from line Number and it will pickup from where the mishap occurred.

Hope this is answer to your question.

From Ross.

Well Ross that is not the way it should be.

You shouldn't have to turn off Masso after a Feedhold.

When a feedhold is implemented, all aspects of that file should be switched off.

Then restart with cycle start.

Like all yellow THC, Coolant on F2 screen.

Everything should start again.

When re-implementing this stopped file.

All previous commands should continue.

When this happens, it will be the ultimate situation.

Does anyone agree ?

Cheers.

I agree, the Torchmate does just that. Hit any key to pause, move the obstruction (flip up) then hit the start icon to resume program..

Lilow,

Think F-13 for the print screen as it's to the right of the F-12 button..

Lilow, can you read what i wrote!

Masso is only turned off if something crashes in the system and you can't get it to do any movement!

I said nothing about turning off Masso after a freehold!

I knew i shouldn't have tried to help you with this but i was trying to be nice.

Thanks Ross.

I appreciate what you say.

In this case, if Feed hold hit, then hit cycle start, one of two relays doesn't come on again.

I'll take the screens shots and send them to Masso support.

Cheers.

Thanks to Peter @ CNCnutz.

I was able to take screen shots of all windows.

It's now to take all screen shots in sequence and present to Masso.

It is amazing that the G2 has the same characteristics as the G3.

Only 1 of 2 relays start after feed hold released with cycle start.

Interesting.

Cheers.

At the moment I need 2 Masso users to check something for me.

One I hope will be Segoman Designs.

The other hopefully will be Peter @ CNCnutz, a logical choice as he appears to be well connected with Masso Support.

Segoman already has my email, Peter you have my permission to allow Masso to forward yourself my email address.

Some irregularity of commands are showing up something I mentioned previously.

I need to determine some results before presenting to Masso Support.

Cheers.

Lilow,

That will take a couple of days, I am at the final connections to the Masso mode, motors are installed, tuned and run via the mode generator in the Clearpath software.

I have less than 100 wires to tie in however progress is slowed due to the -20* F temps and snow accumulation / removal process that you Australians are not familiar with.

Chears

Fantastic photos of your machine, but how about some photos on the snow accumulation / removal process that we Australians are not familiar with!

But then again we do have to put up things like this Severe Tropical Cyclone Damien

Segoman Designs should have everything now.

But how is he going to understand the development, a constant of give just enough info.

I needed someone using a Masso to work a series of code to find why the Masso will not restart after a Feed Hold, Cycle Restart and have all previous commands given, now not being actually instigated.

Then switch different relays after so many restarts.

Why ?

I would like to have liked Peter@ CNCnutz to have a look, as he seems to have the equipment to test.

But no reply.

So, I will bundle it up and send it to Masso Support.

I might make a trip to Sydney.

If I could get a phone number to call, I could explain.

It would be so much easier.

Cheers.
