General Mach Discussion / animatics motors
« on: May 03, 2008, 02:34:08 PM »
I have asked this before and got a response but I lost the email.
I am putting animatics motors on a manual mill.
Who is developing a MACH3 system to use these serial motors?
I think it was one of the moderators that responded but I cannot remember.
You may email me at jimwea@gmail.com.

General Mach Discussion / D R O mode
« on: March 16, 2008, 02:36:09 PM »
I only have one mill.
It is a nice little grizzly vertical mill.
I would like to put a cnc package on it but I do not want to loose the manual functionality.
In short, I would like to turn the motors off and use the encoders for manual positioning.
in a DRO (directional read out) mode.
Is this possible now?
can it be added?

It would be really sweet to be able to square up a block real quick and then zero at a point and cut a bolt patern or a pocket.

Am I missing something?

I have aquired several Animatics motors.
has anyone had experiance with these?
will mach3 drive them?
We used them in a machine I designed for another company but I never touched the drive side.
I did the motion side and overall design.
