Share Your GCode / Turn A axis
« on: October 07, 2021, 09:06:44 AM »
If i enter G53 A 9000 etc , in the  mdi screen  A axis will turn until it reaches the posted degrees . What i would like to do , is insert it into a gcode file and have it run until the file has finished .

Mach4 General Discussion / Macro or script for A axis
« on: September 08, 2021, 02:25:14 PM »
I would like to make a macro or script to put into Mach 4 latest version , to activate my rotary axis and have it turn constant . I want it to act like a lathe , and be able to run a g code file separately while it is turning . I want it to act like the spindle , push a button on the mach 4 screen to start it turning and push button to stop rotation . I can put in the feed rates for A axis , the reason i want it to run constant is , otherwise i would have to change the length or the work piece in the routine . I want to turn table leg profiles .

    Thank you

I found that in the motor tuning , with a new profile created for wrapping , you have to increase the feed rate and accel rate for the A axis and then the A axis will work much fasted. I ran the example file and it cut correctly and much faster, it did not affect the normal feed rate .

    Thanks for all the reply's

Mach4 General Discussion / G 93 code
« on: August 24, 2021, 09:18:19 AM »
Attached is a file that i converted with a G93 converter program . It adds separate feed rates for the A axis, when i run it in Mach 4.2.0.4612 , the A axis runs at the file feed rate , not at a separate rate for "A" .Does something have to be changed in Mach 4  , for it to recognize G93 code??

    Thanks
