Program in Pause

Postby philippic » Tue Mar 07, 2017 8:42 am

I have a number of very small, deep holes to drill.
Is there a way to program in a pause between holes?
I'd like to be able to make sure the drill is clear before doing the next hole.
I've done similar holes before and the drill sometimes gets tangled. Things go downhill fast from there.

Lacking a better idea, I edited my post and saved it under a new name.
I edited the G83 cycle (deep drill) by adding this to the beginning.
[SEQ_PRECHAR][SEQNUM][DELIMITER]M5
[SEQ_PRECHAR][SEQNUM][DELIMITER]M0
[SEQ_PRECHAR][SEQNUM][DELIMITER]M3
A bit messy but it works.
It would have been nice if the user defined drill cycles were versatile enough that I could have used them.
Then I wouldn't have to be switching back and forth to different posts.
