Have program to do on a iTNC530.
It needs to be in ISO even though it a heidenhain controller.
We can get the ISO screen up and write some moves but nothing happens apart from the tool referancing itself.
Can someone give me the first couple of lines to get the machine going!
Did you home the machine when you first start it up?
I'll list what I do just in case you skipped this part.
Turn on main power.
Hit Yellow Button to turn on power.
Press Green button to home Z
Press Green Button to home Y
Press Green Button to home X.
Clear any messages with the CE key.
The spindle has to be on for the machine to take off and start doing its thing, at least that has ben my experience. If you get a flashing asterisk on the screen then its waiting for the spindle.
To start the spindle I have to press the green spindle enable button and hyperextend the spindle speed switch.
Hope this help is some way. I dont use the ISO feature.
