Does it need to be converted to a string?
Can I just use:

Code: Select all
double mynumber = Format("{0:F6}", originalnumber);
exec.Code("G0 X" + mynumber);


Or does it need to be:

Code: Select all
string mynumber = String.Format("{0:F6}", originalnumber);
exec.Code("G0 X" + mynumber);

The first example you wrote will not even work, because the String.Format function always returns a string. All function overloads' return type is string.
And it would not even make sense to return a double, because a double is represented with a fixed format, you can't format how a double number is represented in a double type. How it's formatted is fixed and is defined in the "IEEE Standard for Binary Floating-Point Arithmetic" which standard is available on the IEEE website somewhere.
What you can format is how the double number is printed into a string. What you format is the string which contains the number.

So, you have to do the second code which you wrote.

Had to finally get some sleep - I'm up now and am happy to try anything you all come up with.

Try this and see if it works.
(Note that I haven't tested it. Way too cold outside :shock: )

Crashed on second test.

X+ was fine, X- was fine. Return to center before the Y+ resulted in an X+ crash in to the right pocket wall.

I had a feeling the return to center would cause the crash as well.
It appears that Balazs found the problem.

Give me a few more minutes and I'll fix the move to center issue.

That last one is the ticket. 10x internal pocket cycles and no crashes. Even bumped the rapids to 200IPM and probing speed up to 40/2IPM and good to go.

I'm guessing the same fixes need to happen on the other probing macros?

Yes, I need to go through them all.
I'll get started later this evening. Might be a day or three.
