General Mach Discussion / reading excel files in Mach 3
« on: October 06, 2008, 10:16:12 PM »
I have several excel files, one with  x y pairs with several thousand points for linear interpolation and another in polar coordinates in degrees and y axis.  How do I import this into the g code editor? I quess what I am asking is how to import excel files into Mach 3 or how can I convert these files to g code that can be used by Mach 3?

General Mach Discussion / Formula use in Mach 3 secret
« on: March 16, 2008, 08:58:46 PM »
I have searched for information regarding use of formulas in Mach 3 and can find nothing explaining the use of this feature.  I am assuming that from all outward appearance that it was intended to modify axis interpolation?  I have tried several  times to use simple formulas to test and cannot get anything to work.  I have been successful in engraving on the perimeter of a cylinder by substituting Y axis for A axis for  my rotary table and am now wanting to do circular iinterpolation on the end of a cylinder that is rotating in my rotary table and need a formula that would adjust the axis as the cut moves to the center of rotation and visa versa. What is the secret to get any formula to work with Mach 3 ??

Thanks, Woodeye
