Hi Scott,
Had a funny today (please see attached).

Basically, a sub had 2 decimal points in on a Y move in error.
Nc plot looked like it plotted it ok.
On machine, fanuc alarm illegal use of decimal point occured.
NcPlotted again, which showed a slight overcut (as attached).
Deleted extra decimal point in NcPlot editor, then NcPlotted correctly.
Machined ok.

We hand edit quite a lot and this has happened a few times.
Is there anyway that NcPlot (on refresh?) can stop at the block in question if there are too many decimal points (displaying an error box, just like 'M00 Program Stop')?

Forgive me if i'm asking the impossible!

Thanks,
Terry

Terry,

NCPlot should display an error for this, for some reason its not though. I'll fix this.

Thank,
Scott
