MASSO Software Update – v3.29.2a (Alpha Release)

Release date: 26th April 2018

 

IMPORTANT:

  1. This is an “aplha” release, which means that this is for testing purposes only and should not be used on machine if you do not want to participate in testing this software.
  2. We will be releasing the main version soon and this version is for feedback and bug reports.

 

Steps before updating the software:

  1. All tool calibration data will be lost after this update and you MUST calibrate your tools again before using the controller.
  2. Please make sure to copy both the files sent in email with .HTG extension to the USB pen drive.
  3. Remove PlayStation controller from MASSO before updating and in this version PlayStation controller on power up might not allow system to startup.

 

Settings to check after updating the software:

  1. All tool calibration data will be lost after this update and you MUST calibrate your tools again before using the controller.
  2. Go to F1-Setup screen and under General Settings either disable Limit maximum feedrate or enter a value as required.
  3. In Spindle Settings, check the Spin UP and DOWN delay values and enter as required.

 

Whats New:

  • Now MASSO can store up to 100 tool calibration data.
  • Option for tool holder slots.
  • Hard limit alarm automatically disabled when axis configured as angular axis.
  • Support for Linear Tool Changer for Mills and Routers, click for details
  • Spindle spin up and down delay values can now be entered so that the machine waits for the spindle to achieve full RPM before cutting.
  • Quick buttons on MDI window
  • Option to easily setup Angular Axis and enter values in degrees
  • Limit feedrate, now you can limit the gcode G1, G2 and G3 feedrates in machine setup settings. The machine will still work on the full rapids for G0 but will limit the cutting feedrates. This option was requested by educational institutes so that they can prevent tool damage due to high feedrates in gcode.
  • Option to load different tools in tool slots
