SmoothStepper USB / crazy outputs from simple code.
« on: March 26, 2009, 03:56:07 AM »
I am trying to retune tune my drives (dc servos) since converting from P.P. I have 1 drive running at full speed now but still have a problem.
To tune, I use the following piece of code to save manually jogging back and forth.

F3000
G01 x50
x0
x50
x0
x50
x0

The problem is if I run this code with NO FRO. i.e. 100%, it will travel at 2300ish mm/min for all but the last line of code! for which it runs as instructed at 3000 mm/min?????

Any help pleeeease.

Cheers,
James

General Mach Discussion / Whats in the near future??
« on: March 16, 2009, 04:17:15 AM »
I have been away for a couple of months now and have done some searching around for Quantum and where its at.
It seems that there is not much happening there.

I was wondering if anyone of the many great people in the mach 3 team could give us a bit of a summary as to where things are at in general with mach 3 and the 3rd Order planner that was to be in quantum?

Maybe there could be a "comming soon" notice board for people in the know, to post where you are at?

Cheers,
James

General Mach Discussion / feed rate display error.
« on: March 16, 2009, 01:22:08 AM »
I have a problem with the units/min dro not reeding what it should!
I am re-tuning my drives and have set the max velocity to 1000mm/min.
when I jog at 100% it reads 992-995 mm/min, but if I type G00 X100 it runs at 1750 ish mm/min. (shouldn't that be impossible?, faster that set max?)
I upgraded to the latest lockdown version but no change? I then rolled back to 2.56 (oldest thing I have) and all is fine ????
All on original screens.

Any one else having this issue?

Cheers,
James.

Mach Screens / On screen keyboard help?
« on: November 05, 2006, 10:42:50 PM »
My intensions are to make a new MDI screen with large keyboard buttons for use with my touch screen LCD monitor.
I do not intend on having a keyboard or mouse by my mill, only a screen and somewhere to hang my pendant.
I have been reading the threads for keyboards and touch screens, it seems there is a solution with that on screen keyboard, however I would be much happier if I could design my own keyboard in mach3 directly.

Is this possible yet or is someone working on something?
I have tried to add buttions in screen4, but when used in mach to enter a single line of code into the MDI line, pressing that button exits the MDI line.

Cheers,
James.
