I have a file on my USBCNC-FAD-INT and am unable to find the specified program name.My steps:1) CD,10 [ENTER] 2) DNC,OP5-33T77.NC+
The quick answer is to always run the DIR+ command to see what the file name really is BEFORE entering the Calmotion + command with a file name.
When there is an error that occurs that indicates file does not exist, like "ERROR(29): FILE DOES NOT EXIST ON USB" It might be that you are not typing the file exactly as it exists on the USB. There can be several reasons for this:
1) Windows might be hiding an extension
2) You are entering the letter O instead of a 0
3) The Calmotion shortened the file name to the 8.3 format.
4) A character that doesn't exist on the Fadal keyboard was changed.
Always use the DIR+ command to see if the file name to be used has been modified. The 8.3 file name format is recommended but required. Long file names can be used but will be shortened.
So, when the file name goes past 8 characters (not including extension) or there are characters not allowed because it doesn't exist on the Fadal keyboard, the file name will be shortened so that it can be entered on the Fadal keyboard.
So the tip is to first do a directory and then use the file name just as it is listed in the directory listing. For example if you have a file name A VERY LONG FILE NAME BEING USED.NC the directory will show a shortened file name of AVERYL&1.NC. The spaces removed and the &1 added.
find the file name in listing and type in as shown on the Fadal screen:
And to answer your question specifically, it will be something like:
