Wow, thanks a ton!

I'll give this a try and do some learning with it.

Thanks, I'll have to do some more learning on M code.  Could you help with some rough code to get me started?  I could probably simplify by just running the same mill path each cycle & just turning on the output while the path is being executed instead of pulsing.  So:

Wait for input...
When input is true, turn on output & execute path
When path is done, turn off output
Repeat

Thanks again!

I apologize if this is very trivial, but I've read through the Mach3 setup pdf and have a question on the best way to implement what I need.  I'm running an X3 mill, and would like to drive the X and Y axis with a Gecko G540 and some NEMA 23 steppers.  I want to be able to read an input from another panel to the G540 & Mach3 that triggers a simple code, then pulse an output back to my control panel to let it know that the cycle is complete.  The next time the input is triggered, I need a reverse version of the code to execute and again pulse an output.  I'll outline it below...

Wait for input, when true...
G01 X0.6 F2.0
G01 X1.2 F10.0
Pulse output
Wait for input, when true...
G01 X0.6 F2.0
G01 X0.0 F10.0
Pulse output
Wait for input, when true...
G01 X0.6 F2.0
G01 X1.2 F10.0
Pulse output
<Continue cycle>

Thanks for your help!

Steve
