VB and the development of wizards / Tracing an object
« on: February 26, 2018, 06:12:09 PM »
I am having a problem with a small bit of code and am hoping someone can help me.
I have some special maple and yew burls and slabs I need to trace so I mount one on the table and trace it using the
crosshairs in the video window. Until now I have been writing the dros down on paper and inputting them into Aspire
by hand.
That was ok before but now I have been given 5 more to do, so with your help, I would like to use a button to
record the dro to a file so I can speed things up a bit.
So far I have gotten the code into the button and it writes to the file but when I try to write the next line to the
file it overwrites the last line, could someone please have a look and tell me what I am missing?

Sub Main ()
Open "L:\test\TESTFILE.txt" For Output As #1 ' Open to write file.

   X = GetOEMDRO (800)
   Y = GetOEMDRO (801)
   Z = GetOEMDRO (802)

Write #1, X, Y, Z

Close #1

End Sub               

With many thanks; Herman

I just purchased a BOB from cnc4pc (C 11) I plugged the cable into my ethernet smoothstepper, installed the power to the board and ran a wire to try it out using a metal plate for auto zero. I went to ports and pins and set probe to port three pin 15, and tried the auto zero led, into which I had already loaded an auto zero macro that someone was kind enough to post. The macro ran flawlessly but it dosn't seem to see the board. I checked the smoothstepper configuration and it shows all three ports working. What am I missing? I would appreciate any suggestions. :'(

hi to all out there,  I need help with moving files from my desktop to the shop computer. I am using Vcarve Pro 6 to design the project then I save onto a dongle (love that word), take it to the shop and try to load it into Mach 3. Vcarve saves it as a txt. file but mach doen't see it I just get a blank dongle as if there was nothing on it. My question is, am I using the wrong format or is it a Mach problem? I normally work with wood so this computer stuff, for me at least, has a steep learning curve, any help would be appreciated.
