VB and the development of wizards / Script question ?
« on: May 01, 2014, 05:10:44 PM »
How can I setup a script to move to a X, Y location which I would specify in two DRO's ?

I'm not sure how to do something like this,

Code "G53z0"
  While IsMoving()
Code "G53x0y0"

Where only x and y for the last line would be from two DRO's

Like this,

Code "G53x(dro_xvar)y(dro_yvar)  something like this, I tried it but gives me errors.


Works in progress / First Screen Attempt....
« on: March 10, 2014, 02:00:56 AM »
I wanted a Screen Set for my 1366 x 768 display, I wanted all the controls that I will need and use on one display and a simple look and not too much color, it does look a bit cluttered but I tried to organize it to find things easy.

There are only 3 screens, the Main Screen, Diagnostics, and a Reference Screen.

General Mach Discussion / Mach3 PWM issues
« on: February 26, 2014, 11:12:43 AM »
I've checked the forums until my head hurt and am not getting anything.

I had my Mach3 setup to run my 2.2KW spindle using the PWM and a G540, it was working fine until recently, now if I check the output voltage that goes to the VFD, it's always ~8.4 volts with a 10v input to the G540, I checked pin 14 on the parallel port with a scope and it's a 25khz signal at 50/50 duty cycle, it does not change at all, it's just a nice square wave, I'm running out of ideas, what happened to Mach3, as I said it was working ?

Any help would be appreciated.

Just downloaded Version3.043.066 and installed it, my question is this,

a bunch of mfc8 files, a bunch txt files and files that make no sense, anyone know why this is ?
