VB and the development of wizards / Probing with PoKeys57CNC
« on: October 05, 2017, 12:03:32 PM »
Hello everyone,

I just upgraded my highly appreciated Mach3 / parallel port driven mill to a PoKeys57CNC device.  ::)

Unfortunately, although probing seemed to work fine on a first sight (probe connection works, G31 command is executed nice - machine stops as soon as probe is triggered) I've got a strange problem: the #2000 to #2005 variables, which should contain the probe trigger coordinates, are all "0" after execution of G31 command.   ???

TriggerPointX = GetVar(2000)
TriggerPointY = GetVar(2001)
TriggerPointZ = GetVar(2002)

--> To get machine running again, as I had to get some work done on it, I changed the relevant probing script to do the probing veeery slooow and polled the according X, Y and Z DROs, which is suitable as a temporary solution.

So, my question is:
- Who exerienced similar probing trouble with a PoKeys57CNC board.
- Maybe, PoKeys plugin has an own place to put the trigger coordinates to, which I don't know.
- Did I misconfigure Mach3 or PoKeys plugin, so probing basically work, but the plugin isn't able to write the trigger coordinates to the according variables

I'm happy about any help or Information.

regards, Konrad

General Mach Discussion / New development version
« on: January 23, 2011, 02:37:51 PM »
Hi all,

I just noticed that the development version jumped from 3.043.22 to 3.043.26.
Does anybody know what's new in it?

(Is there a place where to find information about development versions like a change-log?)

regards, Konrad

General Mach Discussion / Softlimit update by macro
« on: August 01, 2010, 05:44:21 PM »
Dear Fellowes,

My today's Problem is on a mill using Mach3 version 3.042.040:

I would like to adjust the Z minimum softlimit (OEMDro 158) by M6END toolchang macro, to make it (nearly) impossible to scratch the machine table ;-)

After doing the adjustment, OEMDro 158 is changed to the new value, but mach3 still uses the previous "Z minimum" value.

When opening the "homing and limits" menu, I find the new value entered by the macro. After closing "homing and limits" again by "OK" button, the machine's behaviour is correct, it uses the new value then.

Another way is to shutdown the Mach3 software and start it again, also then, the new value is effective.  (However, just pushing the "Reset" button is not enough...)

Is there a way to force Mach3 to do the update of softlimit values correctly?

Thanks a lot for yout input :-)


General Mach Discussion / Version .036 and .037 changes
« on: February 15, 2010, 07:26:07 PM »
Hi Folks!

Does anybody know what the changes in .036 and .037 are?

When nothing is written in the changelog, it's not easy to decide, without knowing what works now and what stopped working    ;D
