The local and global macro variables #1 - #33 and #10000 - #10999 are displayed and modified through the Current Commands display.

note: Internal to the machine, 10000 is added to 3-digit macro variables. For example: Macro 100 is displayed as 10100.
  1. Press CURRENT COMMANDS and use navigation keys to get to the Macro Vars page.

    As the control interprets a program, the variable changes and results are displayed on the Macro Vars display page.

  2. Enter a value (maximum is 999999.000000) and then press ENTER to set the macro variable. Press ORIGIN to clear macro variables, this displays the Origin clear entry popup. Press number 1 - 3 to make a selection or press CANCEL to exit.

    Origin Clear Entry Popup. 1: Clear Cell - Clears the highlighted cell to zero. 2: Clear Column - Clears the active cursor column entries to zero. 3: Clear All Global Macros - Clears Global Macro entries (Macro 1-33, 10000-10999) to zero.

  3. To search for a variable, enter the macro variable number and press the up or down arrow.
  4. The variables displayed represent values of the variables when the program runs. At times, this may be up to 15 blocks ahead of actual machine actions. Debugging programs is easier when a G103 P1 is inserted at the beginning of a program to limit block buffering. A G103 without the P value can be added after the macro variable blocks in the program. For a macro program to operate correctly it is recommended that the G103 P1 be left in the program during loading of variables. For more details about G103 see the G-code section of the manual.
