Hello Brian, and all,
I enjoyed talking with you at Cabin Fever.  It was my first visit, and won't be my last!

I am wondering if there is any way to apply mach3 to a machine control application that is not CNC machining.  We often have applications for general machine control, these sometimes require motion (typically Allen-Bradley Logix 5000 Servo control) .

Can you think of any way to create a different front end, like an Man-Machine interface that was specific to the customer's equipment, and use Mach three behind the scene to run coordinated moves on the equipment?

I guess what I am asking is, is there a way to hide all the detailed cnc stuff on the Mach3 screen, load a G-code file and run it repeatedly all day long?  We would have to present the operator with a status screen, or some kind of a view of the equipment.  We do this today with RSView, Wonderware, and sometime custom VB applications.  We would probably want a hard wired push button for start and stop, and of course E-stop.

This could open lots of possibilities if it were feasible.
