EMC stops executing code (code format issue?)
It might be part of this index-enable problem as well, that it is not getting the OK to proceed because it is waiting for spindle speed to show OK.
I don't think this is it, as I don't think that G-code is even using a mode where spindle synchronisation happens.
So, not only is it not using G76, or the slightly less suitable G33, it isn't even using G95 (feed per rev) mode. It is actually trying to cut a thread with absolutely no reference to the spindle at all, and just assuming that your spindle speed is spot-on.
I am beginning to see why JT has the opinions he has.
We'll see how they do, I've sent the edits into them to work on, and they say they are. Maybe they wil get a better post processor out of it. I would suspect there are not many shops running EMC with Bob-CAD which is probably why the processor has the problems.
But, to my earlier thought, if you have speed feedback to EMC and you tell it to run at S500, won' t it wait until you get in range to proceed? I thought I read that and it might be why it was not proceeding (poor Gcoding aside).
I noticed my spindle range setting was at 0.90 in HAL, (directions aren't clear here, but my interpreation is speed needs to be from 90 to 100% of the requested) and I was actually running around 520 RPM, so maybe I was out of range and it would not proceed?
Anyway, just glad I figured out where the code problem was (besides just poor G-coding in general)!

It can but doesn't do so by default. Look at motion.spindle-at-speed here: linuxcnc.org/docs/html/config_emc2hal.html
and see if it is wired in your HAL (I suspect it probably isn't)
I added in some code for the GS2 RPM meter in the post-HAL, but I really did not change anything in the HAL file that was setup in PnCConf besides the bug fixes have to do every time run PnCConf.
Very nifty feature, I must say, but kind of odd that it set itself up 'automatically'!
Thanks for checking!
I didn't really see it advertised though, is there a different place to get the LiveCD?
