361  Third party software and hardware support forums. / dspMC/IP Motion Controller / VyTech router with dspMC on: September 15, 2010, 11:25:07 AM
I have a request to help convert an old VyTech router, 5x10ft table to use Mach. The router has Copley Controls amplifiers. The amps are not a current part number for Copley, but were an OEM version. I think they are +/- 10v input

Has anyone seen one of these machines?

Would a dspMC be a good choice for running it?

The Newfangled wizards do not include lathe.  You might try on one of the othesections of this forum, or on cnczone.

I have been working on some turn wizards, but summer has slowed my progress. I dont think they would do a jar shape however.

Al you need to do is remove the folders form the Mach3/addons folder. Each folder holds one wizard.

You should do this when mach is not running. Mach reads the folder each time it starts up, but if you deleted folders while it was runningit might get confused

Of course, next time you install a new version mach will put back all the wizards.

The addons are also called wizards. You can use the menu bar for wizards, then select the newfangled one form the list presented. There is also a button on the main screen labeled 'conversational' that directly opens the newfangled wizard.

there is no addon.exe file

The NFS  wizards do support building complex programs by combining actions, but they do not allow changing the Z, as you have discovered.

This has been requested before and I have considered doing it, but it can lead to many ways to crash a tool if you are not careful. I have always figured wizards were for simple operations and should not make it easy to crash tools.

That is clearly not what you ought to see. Id give up on Screen3 or screen4 and go to MachScreen. it works much better.

V2.74 is very old and several fixes have been made since then.

All Versions are announced in the Newfangled section of this forum, and all are posted there. You simply download the zip file and unzip it into the Addons folder.

Loading a new version of Mach should not overwrite your settings, in particular if you have created a local profile. If you use the default profile you may have a problem. Just backup the profile before you update.

This is all well explained in the Mach Installation Manual.

Dave, why do you Expand to get the actual code instead of a RunScript?

I have posted a few pages on my web site with details. plsntcov.8m.com/CNClathe/Cnclathe1.html

Here is a photo of the finished machine



Im now finishing up some wizards for turning.

There is a green LED that indicates where you want the origin to be, In your example you selected the lower left corner. Then you set the the value of that point to the X and Y DROs, in this case .25, -.5

Length and width refer to an absolute measurement, length is in the X direction, Width is the Y distance.. In this case since there are only 2 holes per side, making one in each corner of a rectangle, the holes are 4.486 apart in X and 1.5 apart in Y.

You are setting 0,0 at the left edge of the stock, and .5 up from the bottom edge. That seems to me to be a strange place to zero off.

There is a manual for the wizards in the documentation area of this site that might help.
