M03/M05 Button no longer works

Postby KonaTom » Sat Jan 16, 2021 7:32 pm

M03/M05 use to manually start the spindle for a least the 2+ years I've owned it... until the last two releases. When pressing the M03/M05 button now, spindle stays idle even though the status window states "Spindle ON command issued". However I can still send GCODE generated from VCarve which will start the spindle.

Running v3.6.4 b749

Any thoughts why?

Make sure you have at least 1000 showing in the PWM DRO (select 1000 in the drop down box under the S+ button, and click the S+ button).

Then try M03. Did this turn on the spindle?

There was a change to the code for laser operations that changed the M03 button action. Leaving 1000 in the PWM DRO should resolve this for you. Please let me know.
