VB and the development of wizards / Edge detection on input
« on: January 13, 2016, 01:15:19 PM »
i need to detect a falling edge of an input to control my turret

i think the code is right but it hangs mach3?

wanted_position = 6
counter = 0
marker = 0
'input 1 = the couter of the turretpostion

message "c = " &counter

activatesignal(output3) 'start run turret
While ismoving()

While (counter <> wanted_position)

   If Not isactive(input1) And marker = 0 Then
      counter = counter + 1
      marker = 1
   End If

   If isactive(intput1) And marker = 1 Then
      marker = 0
   End If

   message "c = " &counter


deactivatesignal(output3) 'stop turret

tnx for your reply!

General Mach Discussion / G84 reverse time
« on: September 08, 2013, 02:15:38 PM »
I am testing my emco vmc100 with mach3 every works fine but i do not understand one thing

I use the g84 for tapping that works oke except that if the tap is at the bottom the spindle reverses but it takes a second or so before the z-axis moves up. I think that should be immediatly?

Thank you for your reply


Machscreen Screen Designer / System hotkeys
« on: September 08, 2013, 02:07:31 PM »

I use the 1024 mach screen and i made an extra page in tis screen set. All works fine except the systemkeys like jogging the axis with the keyboard arrow keys. If i select an other (standard) page the keys work well

Tnx for you reply


what i want is swinging the a-axis while the z-axis is moving to a position. how is that posible in vb?
i made this but this wil move the z-axis first and then swing the a-axis. i want this simultaneously

counter = 0
code "g1 z90 f100"

While counter < 20
 code "g0 a0.5"
 While ismoving()
 code "g0 a-0.5"
 While ismoving()

thank you for your reply.


PoKeys / pokeys 56u analog FeedRate Override issues
« on: December 08, 2012, 08:55:43 AM »

i use the latest mach and pokeys software.
if i map encoder 1 directly to FRO (DRO:821) it works great, but it would be perfect if i press reset FRO that the encodervalue would be reset too to a value of 100.
if i use analog input on input 41-47 and if i map this to DRO:821, feedrate override does not respond correctly, or not respond at all.

tnx TanTan

General Mach Discussion / softlimits and 4th axis
« on: November 04, 2012, 03:28:33 AM »

in general config there is an option to turn on/off softlimits for the fourth axis (rotational: rotational softlimits). this does not seem to work. if you turn softlimits on the softlimits for the fourth axis are enabled, no mather if the rotational limits are checked on or off.

SmoothStepper USB / Ess and parallel port
« on: August 18, 2012, 04:14:23 PM »

I use the ESS with mach3 and it works great. If you use the smoothstepper the parallelports are signed out. Is it possible to use the ess simultaneously with the parallel port. The reason i ask is that i would like to,use the 2nd parallel port on my computer for my pendant?

Tnx tantan
