    Default Ending program without stopping spindle?

    Hi Guys,

    Im trying to setup a few user buttons to load common tools and turn them on at proper speed to save setup time. For example click a user button to toolchange to edge finder and start spindle at 1000 rpm.

    I have user button set to execute a G code program (just 2 lines, M6 T20, M3 S1000) but if I end with M02 or M30 the spindle stops after program finishes. And if i leave out M02 or M30 i get an error. Any suggestions?

    What if you add a M00?

    Im not sure if its a good idea to have the program just stop and wait without finishing? I did try it out of curiosity and it seems to do the trick.

    But is it a bad idea to just have that program waiting? Any suggestions Tom?

    M0 Halts. Nothing is "waiting".

    It should be fine.
