VB and the development of wizards / Run script when cnc cut finishes
« on: July 14, 2011, 12:58:13 PM »
Hello all and thank you for reading :),
I'm interested in having Mach 3 text/sms/message me when it's done cutting my part.  Sometimes it takes forever to cut a part and I'm OK with leaving it to cut on its own for hours (I like to leave the noisy router room and maybe watch a movie or do something in the yard, or eat some food, etc).  I have some good VB programming experience so I'm comfortable with creating a script that emails/texts/sms messages me, I just need to know how to get Mach 3 to invoke/run my script when it finishes cutting. 

Thanks again,

G-Code, CAD, and CAM discussions / Millimeter, mm, inches problem
« on: January 04, 2011, 06:21:49 PM »
So, any one else have problems creating a millimeters profile?  I've tried several things in order to get Mach 3 to stay in mm once I restart it.  It always loses my settings.  The two places I've messed with are in the native units from the config menu, and the units in the settings tab.  Mach 3 seems to remember that I've set these two things (or just one) to millimeters, but when I exit and come back in my DRO reads in inches or even sub-inches.  Any ideas?  I've clicked 'save fixture settings' after I exit Mach 3 and I've clicked Save Settings in the config menu after I've edited anything, all to no avail.

I'm willing to switch to EMC 2, I actually have it all ready to go on my machine but I can't get it to communicate properly with my motors whereas Mach 3 picked it right up. anyone have experience with EMC 2?

Thanks in advance for any help.
