I think you're using Metric, this should fix it. A mod to the post may be needed if it's been chaned to process with the g70. Lets see what the first change does though.
Put all your FS's back to what they were. You should never need to change these. If anything, create new ones.2. The post is outputting 4 decimal places. How do I change?
I have been into edit pst and changed the FS 2 to 0.4 0.3. Did not work.
changed it to .4 .3 still did not work, cahnged it to Fs2 2 0.4 0.3 as the book says and it gave an error message.
Can anyone advise me, I am new to editing posts
In your post, find the FS that matches this one.
Then findCode:fs 11 0.3 0.3 #Decimal, absolute, 3 place
and replace the "2" after the letter with the number, in my case above, "11".Code:fmt X 2 xabs #X position output fmt Y 2 yabs #Y position output fmt Z 2 zabs #Z position output
FS 11 is for 3 place output. You may need to do other axis if you have more than X Y Z.
Note about editing posts, especially if you're new; only make one change at a time and check the output. Be aware of changes that affect things in other places in the program too.
