General Mach Discussion / Control Mach3
« on: May 04, 2013, 11:14:21 AM »
Hi, i am new in mach3... but i have experience in software for serial communication and microcontrollers programming, i was wondering if there is some possibility to control mach3 from outside software through serial port?

Example: Serial Com 2 <--> Com 3 (Com 2 and 3 are virtual serials linked )

I want to start milling after i type "Go" from one software (Not Mach3)... after typing  "Go"  from my X-program, i write something to serial port Com 2 (maybe some byte data), I want mach3 to recognise this data byte from the serial and start some G-code.... i hope i was clear :P ..

So, is it possible or not... maybe using the vb scripting or modbus i don't know... please help me here...

Thanks in advance
