Thanks GER

Does it matter if I just leave it in there and active?  Will it be conflicting with my IMach MPG

General Mach Discussion / Disconnect Shuttle Pro - HOW?
« on: June 06, 2015, 09:11:27 AM »
I was using Shuttle pro on my Mach3.

Great, but it was not reliable.  I cleaned the insides a couple of times, and it worked for a while - but

ANYWAY - I bought a VistaCNC Mach3 pendant and installed the plugin.

I tries to disconnect the shuttle pro by clicking the green check mark to change it to a red X - but imediately get an error message and Mach3 shuts down.

How do I disable the shuttle pro?

No problem

I am beginning to understand the nature of Mach3 and its unique ability to be setup to suit the desires of the user.

This is amazing - but I now need to learn.

Ahhh - OK - RICH - is hitting home with me.

Yeah - I do see that Mach3 is extremely configurable.

No - I was not thinking about the vast array of possibilities.

OK - so I will need to learn how to configure what I want.
I am OK with learning.

I believe I can "ref all home" and not zero out the the "fixture zero" that is displayed on the screen.

Yes I agree - once the part zero is set - I do not want to loose that.

Perhaps - I need to learn how to add a button, to move the tool to a clear "Z" position.

OK - I am confused.

I have a job running on the machine right now that will be running for about 7 hours

Then I will go explore the diagnostics page.

I do appreciate the help

Right now I jog it up with pgUP

On my old software - I could just home the "Z" axis - kinda like "REF ALL HOME"  but with only the "Z", or the "X" or the "Y"

Not a big deal - I thought it was just a button click and I was missing it.

I am not ready to edit screens and ad buttons -- maybe some day - but it is nice to know that it can be done

Gerry,

Yeah I am OK with that part.

After I put t cutter in the spindle - I touch off on top of the workpiece.
I zero out the "Z" axis

I would then like to be able to just click a button on the screen - to move the tool straight up and out of the way
I would like to "HOME" the "Z" axis only.

General Mach Discussion / Super Simple Question
« on: March 13, 2011, 08:26:05 AM »
Mach3 is quite complex, and there is more to it than I will ever experience

I am more a used then a configurator.

Question 1):

How do I home out only ONE axis at a time.

Often times I want to send "Z" home but not XY

How do I do that?


Question 2)
I will have more questions regarding simple operation of Mach3 -- I cannot find this in the manual.

Is there a document that shows just simple step by step operation of Mach3?

Sorry for the overly simple questions.

Hood,

I found that pinout list and printed it out.

I also have several other items in the FTP listing that I believe will be very helpful.

I now have a little reading to do.

One question I have ---

Will I be able to run both of my machines - with separate Icons - through one parallel port - without jeopardizing the settings for the other machine.

Of course I know I can run only one machine at a time.
