General Mach Discussion / Re: Gcode repeat Cycle help
« on: August 14, 2012, 10:44:52 PM »
Hood-

Right now I have

g0 g21 g90 g50 g80 f100
g0 z0 g0 x0 y0
m98 p1 l10
g0 x0
m30
%
o1

g91 g1 z-.5 f50
g90
g1 x-50 f200
g1 y-2
g1 x0
g1 y-4
g1 x-50
g1 y-6
g1 x0
......ETC until .
g1 y-48
g1 x50

is there a way I can repeat the same incremental movements without typing it out all these gcodes?

General Mach Discussion / Gcode repeat Cycle help
« on: August 14, 2012, 03:09:36 PM »
Hi all,

I have a simple gcode installed for my machine to move in a zig zag motion however I wanted to know if the mach 3 supports such configurations like DO Loop where I can type in a set of gcodes and have it repeat a consistent movement along the y axis... instead of writing out each individual increment (which takes up a whole lot of time and also looking for a more efficient way).

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
V

General Mach Discussion / DUOLOOP Configuration, Please Help!
« on: August 14, 2012, 11:44:00 AM »
Hi Everyone,

I want to program my machine with less number inputs and creating what is known as a "DuoLoop" configuration.

Right now I have

g0 g21 g90 g50 g80 f100
g0 z0 g0 x0 y0
m98 p1 l10
g0 x0
m30
%
o1

g91 g1 z-.5 f50
g90
g1 x-50 f200
g1 y-2
g1 x0
g1 y-4
g1 x-50
g1 y-6
g1 x0
......ETC until .
g1 y-16
g1 x50


g91 g1 z-.5 f50  (gcode for z movement repeat)

Then I have a gCode for a reverse direction..
g90
g1 x28 f200
g1 y-16
g1 x0
and etC...

I was wondering instead of writing out all these numbers is there a way to put in a Gcode where I only have to use

x-50
y-2
x0
y-4

and repeating this step continuously? I'm constantly changing my values and it gets restless going back and changing every number.

PLEASE HELP! Not sure what Gcode I use for this

Okay Thanks so much!

What do you suggest I put the enables set to for the port and pin for my limit switches?

Unfortunately, that computer died..

I had another question about the LED lights on the DRO's though.

Everytime I press REF ALL HOME.. the LED lights stay red and do not turn green when I try to manually home it, any ideas why?

I have the correct port address and the Frequency and Time in INT are moving between +5-6.

I was checking the circuit and DRO's seem to be matching with the circuit board because the LED lights flash, but the Mill Machine still doesn't. I'm thinking its a circuit connection between the circuit and the mill? Im not sure..

Yes^ the actual machine doesn't move when the DRO's move

General Mach Discussion / Mach 3 not responding

Hi-

I just installed the Mach 3 program onto my computer, however I cannot get it to move from my program to my mill.

I had everything working perfectly on another computer but then when I switched to a new computer and installed the mach 3 on there, there isn't any movement with the jogging anymore.

Other notes- My computer is compatible with the program and I checked that the printer port was connected and recognized in the computer system.

HELP??
