Seems like a buffer size limit on toolpath highlighting

Hello All,

When I am running Gcode on QtDragon, the toolpath display turns red wherever code has executed. Problem is on large files, the old executed highlighted toolpath turns back white again eventually as if there is a buffer size limit on the red highlighting. How do I fix this so code does so toolpath does not revert back to white???


I would also love to know how to do different colors of toolpath highlighting for different tools....

I have not seen this problem before - do you have a gcode that you could share that shows this problem?

It is possible to change the colors by tool number (in master branch) - here is a hint:
class HandlerClass:
    def __init__(self, halcomp, widgets, paths):
        STATUS.connect('tool-in-spindle-changed', lambda w, t: self.change_tool_plot_color(t))
    #####################
    # GENERAL FUNCTIONS #
    #####################

    def change_tool_plot_color(self, t):
        if t == 1:
            self.w.gcodegraphics.set_plot_colors(jog=(255,0,0,255))
        elif t == 2:
            self.w.gcodegraphics.set_plot_colors(jog=(0,255,0,255))
        else:
            self.w.gcodegraphics.set_plot_colors()

Let me know how that works - I may include it in future versions.

Chris

forgot:

key words can be:
jog=None,traverse=None,feed=None,
arc=None,toolchange=None,probe=None

color = (red, green, blue, alpha)
each are 0-255

As usual...... Thanks Chris!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I have seen it on a few large code programs, both are bunches of nested parts. These are customer company logos so I don't want to share. The toolpath disappears in chunks, like 100 (total guess) lines of gcode at a time.....

FWIW, I see this same thing on large g-code runs in PathPilot. Seems there's some limit somewhere.

If you mean the red color disappearing slowly from the path that has already been travelled, happens in Axis GUI also, i would call that normal.
