G103 Look Ahead Function


I need to add the G103 P0/1 limit look ahead function to my Haas VMC post.  The G-code is output correctly but when I try and run my machine code simulation it errors out at the G103.  Since this code does not actually change the way the machine runs (just how it reads the code) is there some way I can trick the simulator into either skipping or reading (and doing nothing) the G103 P# and continuing on?

Is this something I can do in the VNC tab?

I have the post output G103 as G-User Defined Expression and I made a new word for the P command.

If you are simulating with a CSE driver you can add a command and "Do nothing" in the Machine Configurator. Additioanlly you can add P as MCParam like shown below.

Re: G103 Look Ahead Function


Unfortunately we do not have a license for the Machine Configurator.  I have updated my post to use G01 with a max feedrate as an interim fix.
