*****VIDEOS***** / 3D-ONE a new 3D printer
« on: March 14, 2012, 03:49:18 PM »

Another new customization using Mach3.

The new 3D-ONE, the 3D printer I have develope.


It is already talk in the world of 3D printers


On Youtube many other interesting video of working with my machine and of course Mach3...


*****VIDEOS***** / Working with "Zap"
« on: November 03, 2011, 08:41:38 AM »

This video is not new but I think it is very interesting because you can see the use of new accessory that I'm doing.

Machining with fourth axis: Making wax seal

In this video I show the support for processing waxes (useful for rings), if requested, I will provide the designs for its realization.

Zap is a new machine that I made for working in goldsmith's, jewelry, eyewear (see this other video http://youtu.be/nDwVxZ8aBK8 ) and for precision work.

Zap has been made in kit form for a very low cost, while having an accuracy of 0.01 mm (start from 3.000,00 euro 5-axis)...

The novelty is that I use an aluminum structure, I modified the profile so that I can insert the screw into

Will soon be available for Zap also the fifth axis.

For the fifth axis I used the screen that I mentioned in this topic.

I hope that this information can be useful to many people


Sorry for my bad English, I hope I never say the wrong things.

A new customization using Mach3.

This is a machine for studs welding with capacitive discharge, note also the interface used for Mach3.


In addition to this video, many other interesting video of working with my machine and of course Mach3...


Works in progress / New (revised) Mach3 6-axis screen
« on: July 28, 2011, 10:11:03 AM »
Hi to all

I have developed a new accessory for my cnc Zap, the fifth axis! (see it on http://www.robotfactory.it/index.htm)

I searched all over the web a screen for Mach3 but I found only one developed by Darc (http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic,972.0.html).

After I have install it and tried it, I realized that it had many problems.

Using the wonderful Klaus1311 editor (http://www.kd-dietz.de/index_eng.htm) I fixed and added things that I felt appropriate.

Now I need help to test my 6 Axis screen.

I attach a self-extracting file that installs the screen, after installing it, on Mach3 folder you will find the file 6Axis.set (load screen).

There are two important features to note, Gcodes button opens the html page with an explanation of Gcode and "buttons" Robot Factory opening page link to my site (a bit of publicity ....).

I look forward to advice, criticism and all the information to improve this screen, so that it can become a standard for me.

This is the image of the first page "Program Run".

*****VIDEOS***** / Impact engraving plugin
« on: November 08, 2010, 01:32:31 PM »
Hi all

I have published a new interesting video on Youtube, of course also this use Mach3.


The video use the Art plugin "Impact engraving plugin" to make photo.

In addition, this link ( http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic,16446.0.html ) explains the theory and how to build the accessory to make the photos.


Mach SDK plugin questions and answers. / Impact engraving plugin
« on: November 07, 2010, 02:22:12 PM »

As you know I like to make accessories to enhance the potential use of CNC machines, we would surely have seen in my Youtube channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/RobotfactorySRL # g / u).
Well now I have made up his mind to add a new accessory "Photography".
For accessory "Photography" I decided to use the DLL "Engraving" that Art has done.
I've read all the messages on both the Yahoo forum that the Machsupport forum concerning the topic.

For those who want to revise the topic:
http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic, 11996.msg87152.html # msg87152

The first problem was to find a way to drive a magnet through the signal "Digit Trigger".
After many trials I found a way to use a magnet with which I can use the DLL developed by Art, for this I used a stepper motor drive for connecting the magnet to a single phase leaving the other free.
Since the signal "Digit Trigger" is very short, this is the only simple system possible for proper operation.
With this system I can have a feed rate of 300 mm/min, not much but enough if you consider that it works.
Up to here all is well ...
The problem is probably that the DLL is not working properly, you can see it in the first photo.
The picture would also be good with many shades of gray ...

The image is slightly offset, this is because at the end of the path of the X the trigger array is empty.
When you move to the next line in Y, the start is correct.
And so on until the end.
This is proportional to the X-axis travel (it seems that the values are rounded to lose data, and then the road is longer and more data are lost).
You can see it in the second photo.
I am working in mm!

Perhaps the problem is in this passage from the message of Art:

The triggerlength is an array of 1's and 0's which represent the image's density in one scan line. Its limited to 1000000 , so thats
1 million steps. The trigger array is equal to the number of steps you will move in the X each scan line.

omission .....

Think of pixel size this way. If the program knows there is 120 steps in each pixel of the X line of image, then it will put a variable pulse rate
for that first 100 steps that is representative of the density of that first pixel. During the next 120 steps, another pulse pattern will come out
representing the density of the next pixel..ect.. So if theres less than 20 motor steps / pixel, you wont get much of a density pattern.

omission .....

The way it works is basically this , a buffer of bits is created, the length of the number of steps that the photo will scan in one line.
So in a 5000steps/unit system, on a 8 x10" photo, there woudl be a scanline of 5000 * 10 or 50,000 bits.
Each bit may be set to 1 or 0. that 1 or 0 is put out on the DigTrigger output during the scan of the motor as it traverses the X axis.
This means acceleration is taken into account and each of the 50,000 bits will correspond to the motor position exactly. Now in this example, if the loaded photo is 1024 x 768, then each of the 1024 pixels in the image X will match up with 50,000 / 1024 = approx 50 triggers. If the image was 20" , then we'd have about 100 trigger positions per pixel. Question now, is how best to handle the filling of the possible 50,000 trigger points.

You can see the same problem of mine in the third picture (Top right) when you use the DLL with the laser.
Surely no one noticed because the Y stepover of the fault is less than what I use (0.2 mm)

Now I'm asking for HELP!!!

Art, poppabear, or any person who is able to program in VC++ can help me to solve my problem?

I use the DLL created by bdock (http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic, 11996.10.html) on July 29, 2009, 05:22:37 AM,
because he have added a "Maintain Aspect Ratio" checkbox to keep the image the correct shape.

If you need the sources code, these are in the link above.
Or the originals in Machsupport Plugin.

Please help me to solve the problem!!!


*****VIDEOS***** / Mach3 drive ORIONE at 30 m/min
« on: October 01, 2010, 07:55:19 AM »

This is the first video of "ORIONE" on my channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/RobotfactorySRL#g/u

"ORIONE" the first machine with this type of chain drive.

Reaches a speed of 30 m / min with accuracy of 0.05 1 / 100 mm.

The side, which support the Y axis guides, make the machine particularly rigid and stable.

All movements are produced by chain.

These are some photo of interesting details:


*****VIDEOS***** / Some interesting video
« on: April 19, 2010, 05:27:37 AM »

I have published some interesting video on Youtube, naturally all use Mach3.

You can search the video on Youtube with " robotfactorysrl ".

All videoes have the explanations in Italian but this there is no problem about seen that the images speak by it self.

This is only one of the many examples of the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=anspATAZZQA


Promote and discuss your product / Tangential knife systems
« on: April 19, 2010, 04:58:47 AM »

If you are interested, I have developed a new multi tool "Sistema Quattro" (see it on Youtube or on my web www.robotfactory.it), this is a novelty at a global level.

You can search the video on Youtube with " robotfactorysrl ".

Videoes have the explanations in Italian but this there is no problem about seen that the images speak by it self.

The principle of operation bases oneself on the option of Mach3 "Tangential Control" and the possibility to change the head to do different works.

This is only one of the many examples about how it works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=anspATAZZQA

« on: September 20, 2006, 12:19:35 PM »
Hi all
I have develope an interesting series of CNC router, I have an Italian site (www.robotfactory.it).
I think that the interest of my product is all over the world, but I have a problem with the correct translation in English language.
If some person can help me with the translation only for the text (the text of the Laguna series only).
I am afraid of write wrong or incomprehensible things.
I have no problem to translation from English to Italian (the translation of the Mach3 interface and the manual is nearly ready and it will be put to disposition of all).
There is only two or tree A4 page.
