Mach Screens / Re: Softlimits on RnR card---, min-max input value
« on: February 15, 2021, 10:48:33 AM »
Hello Thomas

I tried this version of the numeric keyboard with the min max function, and it works great.
In the beguinning I had some issues, but I found that I had aso deleted the commands after the "end function"

Thanks again Sir

Just did a little more testing, and it actually turns out that the Softlimit switches work when jogging the axis in manual mode. But if you input a value outside the limits in the MDI, it moves beyond the softlimits.....hmmmmm funny

Thanks for the reply Thomas.
I use your onscreen keyboard, and it is GREAT, thanks man.

So making a couple of lines with a >= or =< would be harder to implement in the keyboard macro as it would have to know what DRO it is writing to.
If there was a specific macro that was called for each axis, would it be possible then?

Like:
 numerkkeyboard_x_axis.m1s
 numerkkeyboard_y_axis.m1s
 numerkkeyboard_z_axis.m1s


BTW. I picked up the work on my table saw screenset, and the fingerjoint wizzard you made for me.
When I finish the sled , I will make a YT video on it. If it is OK with you, I might shoot you an email with a couple of questions in a day or 2.
Have a great day Sir

Best regards
Roy


there is no possibilty (ok i do not know one), to set a Min/Max range for a partucular DRO.

here:

i posted a numeric Keyboard Input possibilty via VB, there is would be easy to inplement.

Mach Screens / Softlimits on RnR card---, min-max input value
« on: February 13, 2021, 03:06:40 PM »
I use a USB motion controller for Mach 3. These do not support use of softlimits unfortunately.
I input all my positions manually on the DRO on a custom screenset.
BUT I would like to know if anyone has any experience on solving the issue with the missing softlimits?
Is there a way of setting a max-min value for each DRO input value, and have a pop-up msg if a value is entered outside this range, by use of a basic script?


Best regards

Hi Thomas.
The brain worked just as intended. Thank you very much Sir, and have a great afternoon

Thanks a lot Thomas
That is PLC code alright:)

I will try this out.
BTW, the saw build is coming along well, and phase 2 of the build will include yur genious fingerjoint jig:)

Thanks again

Brains Development / Comparing DRO´s in a Brain
« on: January 14, 2020, 05:55:52 AM »
In a custom screenset I am using a compare function of an OEM DRO and an axis DRO to set a OEM LED to green if the axis has moved to the correct position (same as the OEM DRo). This is working in most cases, BUT; Sometimes the positioning is just a little off maybe 1/1000 mm. This does not matter , but as this is not an excact equal value in the compare, the led does not turn green. I have good resolution in the motor tuning with approg 600 steps/mm (no deciaml after comma) , so I am not sure why it sometimes calculates off.

My question is; Are there any way of writing a formula in a brain that says something like this;  (A = B +/-0.250) ( I know this is not mathematically correct, but hopefully gets the explanation up front)

In PLC programming it is possible to write a compare block like this: Variable1 < Variable2 + 0.025  AND Variable1 > Variable2 - 0.025 -----> Output

Or, could Mach3 be set up to use lesser digits? ( I think I have read somwhere that there are actually lots more digits in the code of the program, but not more than 4 after comma is shown in the DRO.

Any good suggestion on how to solve this issue is greately appreciated

Best regards
Roy
