 Grin forsure the VB way is the long and slow way around doing what Art's already done in C++  Grin, but it might help if you want to mix it up with other code

If you really want control you can do some VB on a button script  Wink
This will open the currentl file loaded in Mach with Notepad...but you can tell it any program you want

Code:
Private Sub Form_Load()
Dim dTaskID As Double, path As String, file As String
path = "C:\WINDOWS\notepad.exe"
fileToLoad = Filename
dTaskID = Shell(path + " " + fileToLoad, vbNormalFocus)
MsgBox ("Text loaded")
End
End Sub

Do you have this hooked to a machine? I want to say your in "Motion Mode" set to "Exact Stop", located in Config/Gen Config...is your machine also following the path described in the Toolpath screen? Try to uninstall mach. Delete the Mach3 folder and reinstall to see if that makes a difference if not the latter.

Yeah it would be great if we could all merge to one forum and have one central location. It would make thing easer to keep up with updates and changes.

I personally do not like the "Cycle" increments, it can be dangerous.
What I have is a DRO that I can enter the value I want, I also have my most common amounts that I use on 4 buttons, that way I known when I it the "0.001" button that it will always be set to that.

If you open up your screen in "Screen 4" or use a Flash screen I would recommend adding 4 buttons. You could use Mach codes as well:

Select Step value 1 Button 265  (1.000)
Select Step value 2 Button 266  (0.100)
Select Step value 3 Button 267  (0.010)
Select Step value 4 Button 268  (0.0010)
Select Step value 5 Button 269 
Select Step value 6 Button 270 
Select Step value 7 Button 271 
Select Step value 8 Button 272 
Select Step value 9 Button 273 
Select Step value 10 Button 274 
Set Jog mode STEP (same as button 205) 275 
Set Jog mode CONT (same as button 204) 276


Alternatively, you can send the value and turn on Incremental mode using Flash script or VB script...if you need help with the script let use know.

If for that day you have a comman distance your traveling you could have a DRO that you enter the value to store the value and on a button send it.

Looks like Mario had the same issue:

From Mach3 R3 I had the same issue. I removed the Declare sub Sleep
line from my code and it works fine. I think Art add support in R3 so
you can call Sleep without the declare.

In this same thread click on your name, then click "Show the last posts of this person." that will list all of the topics you've posted...if you hadn't posted to a thread, but set it as "Notify" it will not be in the list. You would find "Notifications" under "Profile" (located at the top) / "Notifications and Email" (on the Left hand side).

Hey Roger,
The code is working for me..returns X0 Y0 Z0
The only thing I can think of is your machine is moving alittle after stoping...are is your return values low or heigh..meaning in the +1 or 0.01?

Thanks, I can make a list of short cuts, for example if you draw out a shape you can add points (for example to make a stare) select the "polygon tool" ,by holding down the Left mouse button and hitting the arrow keys up or down.

Hey Roger, Do you think this could work with your PLT converter
