I have built a very large machine, that uses coordinates to locate certain objects. It is important that that machine is accurate when locating the coordinates.

If one of the axis skips a little, the coordinates are off.

I would like to create a simple macro to run every few hundred lines to reset the coordinates.

The machine does not have limit switches. Any ideas how do this?

I was thinking of purposely sending the unit past 0,0 something like -1, -1 (the machine will skip a little) and then reset the x,y DRO to 0,0.

Any better ideas?

Thank you!

I would just like the script to end if the condition is met and it is not stopping. I see the Torch Up LED (OEMLED 37) lit up in the diagnostics screen, yet the script just wont stop running. Please help.

Code "m7" 'mist on
Code "G4 P4" 'Wait 4 seconds
Code "M9" 'mist off
Code "M8" 'flood on
Code "G4 P4" 'wait for seconds
Code "M9" 'Flood Off
If GetOemLED(37)=1 then 'if torch up Led active end script
End
Else 'if not
Code "m7" 'mist on
Code "G4 P4" 'Wait 4 seconds
Code "M9" 'mist off
Code "M8" 'flood on
Code "G4 P4" 'wait for seconds
Code "M9" 'Flood Off

They are the same marco, except the first uses the GetOEMLED which is mapped from input 1 and second looks directly at the input1 instead of the LED. Not sure if it makes a difference.

I just want to make sure that they are correct.

VacuumSwitch=GetOEMLED(24)

Code M8 (mist on)
Code G4 P1 (wait for 1 second)
Code M8 (flood on)
Code G4 P1 (wait for 1 second)
If VacuumSwitch=1 Then (if led 24 "trch on" is active then end macro)
Endif
Else (if not)
Code M8 (mist on)
Code G4 P1 (wait for 1 second)
Code M7 (flood on)
Code G4 P1 (wait for 1 second)
Endif (end macro)

Second option:

Code M8 (mist on)
Code G4 P1 (wait for 1 second)
Code M8 (flood on)
Code G4 P1 (wait for 1 second)
If IsActive(Input1) Then (if input1 is active then end macro)
Endif
Else (if not)
Code M8 (mist on)
Code G4 P1 (wait for 1 second)
Code M7 (flood on)
Code G4 P1 (wait for 1 second)
Endif (end macro)

Thank you!

General Mach Discussion / Is there a VBscript beginners guide?
« on: April 18, 2010, 02:01:56 PM »
Need help with some basic vb scripts, but can't find any good resources (that are specific to mach 3) on the issue.

thanks

Is there a way to pause machine for set period of time. Once I activate M3 (spindle) I would machine to stay still for 1 second before going to next G0 location.

Sample:
N01    G00 X20YZ20
N02    G00 X1.1 Y1.1
N03    M03
I would like it pause for 1 second
N04    G00 X1.1 Z1.1

Hello, what is the easiest way to do the following. I can't seem to get it to work.

Activate spindle relay Clockwiise - M3
Stop sprindle (M5) when freedrate DRO > 19 (feedrate DRO  is 821)
If input 1 (port 0, pin 6) is active then Activate spindle CCW - M4
Stop sprindle (M5) when freedrate DRO < 2

Any help would greatly be appreciated!

Brains Development / Help with brain creation with modio
« on: March 25, 2010, 04:13:20 PM »
I need to create a brain to do the following.

1.) Activate relay one (on output 5 in modbus) until feed rate DRO = 20 (I mapped analog input one to feed rate DRO)
2.) Activate relay two (on output 6 in modbus) until feed rate DRO = 1
3.) check input 2 on modio to see if it switch is closed (this is a vacuum sensor that switches on when suction threshold is achieved)
4.) If active (meaning switch is closed) complete brain

If inactive, repeat #1 and #2 (only one time) if input is inactive again then complete brain.

I would like the brain to start with an m code or keyboard hotkey if possible so I can incorporate this in my gcode file.

What is will do:
1.) Relay one extends linear actuator
2.) Relay two retracts linear actuator
3.) Analog input 1 reads potentiometer for actuator extension. 20 = full extension, 1 = full retraction
4) Input 2 on modio checks vacuum sensor switch (which verifies object was picked up)

Thank you!

Hello. Looking for someone to help me set up my custom machine. It is an x y gantry setup with a z drive, it is actually set up as a pick and place machine that is running mach3.

Someone familar with:
1.) Wiring Mach3
2.) Gcode
3.) modbus setup

Of course I will pay for the help. Preferably in NY, but open to other areas as well.

Thank you.

General Mach Discussion / How to attach 24v relay to mach3
« on: February 04, 2010, 04:18:20 PM »
Hello.

I have a breakout board and a modbus, how do I get mach 3 to activate a 24v relay? It just needs to turn on/turn off.

How do I attach the relay to the breakout board?

Thanks

Hello.

I am going to run Mach three to control a large xy gantry style table that will be used for a pick and place application.

1.) I will be using a vacuum suction cup to pick and place my items, one of the optional items I can use is a vacuum sensor, the sensor will be able to determine if enough vacuum pressure exists to lift my item. The question is, it has a digital sensor that works with a PLC (I am not familar with PLC's) can this be used with Mach 3? And if so, is there a simple PLC you recommend

Thank you,

Stuart
