Rigid tapping pitch output

Hello, I am sure someone must have come across this and found a solution.

 

 

I am attempting to get IPR (inch per revolution) output on my post for taps. I added an F word and swtiched it to feed_ipr, but it still calculates the IPM. Should I use a custom command and use [set feed_mode "IPR"]? And then would I set it back after to "IPM". I placed the G95 IPR in the tapping command but it does seem to switch the mode, it just places G95 in the code.

auto.pngLooks like I answered my own question after some more digging. Turns out I needed the have the cycle feed rate modes set to auto. If only everything were as easy as one click.

Note the cycle feed code set to "Auto" will use whatever the operation is set to.

If the op is set to IPM, you will get F in IPM.

If the op is set to IPR, you will get F in IPR.

 

If you *have* to have IPR *always*...(but just for the tap cycle)

You may have to write some code to check.

I'm not at work right now, I'll have to look it up next week & post if you need it.
