SmoothStepper USB / SS and spindle motor control
« on: August 17, 2009, 08:06:55 PM »
I'm having a bit of a problem. In parallel port mode my spindle motor comes on manually and when instructed to in the gcode. Now with the smoothstepper I can manually turn the spindle on but it won't work when instructed in the gcode. All settings in the pin and ports config are set the same. Am I missing a setting somewhere?  ???

General Mach Discussion / manual tool change macro needed
« on: December 24, 2008, 08:33:49 AM »
Ok, I'm new to the CNC world let alone Mach 3 and writing macros. I have a Taig CNC mill that I would like a simple tool change macro. I would like to send it to the home position to allow plenty or room for the tool change,  make my tool change, allow me to reset the tool z height each tool change since I don't have holders and then continue on with the program. Can someone help a total newbie out?
