Hi Klaus,

We have just found with Hood that there is something that can be very useful which can be done in Screen4 but not in MachScreen. In Screen4 one can force leading zeros by using a formatting string something like this %04.0f. MachScreen on the other hand, doesn't output leading zeros with the same formatting string.

Also, using a formatting string like T%04.0f is allowed in Screen4 and and will output the T in front of the number. This is useful in some cases, like the one demonstrated by Hood, here:

http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic,17093.msg127574.html#msg127574

Please consider adding these capabilities to MachScreen.

Thank you for your efforts and a great software!

Hi Peter,

That looks neat! Thanks for posting it.

If you're measuring at the PP output it would be around 0V in its low state and around 5V (or 3.3V depending on your PP card) in its high state.

Since the step line is a square wave, and not a constant DC (nor a 50Hz AC), the voltmeter will show just "something" based on its interpolation technique. It is not a value to judge by the output correctness. But since the value does change, you can tell that signals do go out of the breakout board.

Hmm.... I remember someone was having a problem with lost steps here and he was reporting that his direction pins' state was not changing, but rather he was seeing pulses on the direction lines. It's an abnormal condition (don't remember if he reported/found the cause), but may be it's what you're having. Can you try measuring the spindle relay output? Try to toggle the spindle ON and OFF and see if it changes state.

Otherwise, looks to me like you're printer port is not functioning properly. May be reinstalling it or something could help...

Hi Robert,

Just to make sure Mach3 has been properly installed on your PC including the driver itself, run the driver test file located in the main Mach3 folder.

Also make sure the offline button on the main Mach3 screen is not active.

Scott,

I see what you mean. No point then adding the H DRO which would display the obvious.

Scott,

Not sure what you mean by H for same tool. If it means displaying the current offset NUMBER (not the actual offset length), then it's perfect. That's what's needed - no other thing.
