SmoothStepper USB / Smoothstepper and motor tuning
« on: April 02, 2015, 02:09:16 AM »
I recently had to re-install Mach3.  Now, when I try to set everything back up, I am having a problem with configuring things in motor tuning.  

I am using Mach 3 Version R3.043.066 and I have tried SmoothStepper ESS_v10r2d1d through ESS_v10eb1a.

When I (re) install Mach3, then test to see if I can access the settings for Motor Tuning, everything seems fine - allowing me to change values, etc..  However, when I install the ESS plugin and attempt to change velocity (for example) in Motor Tuning it will jump to 0.  The curve will become distorted...

I have re-installed Mach multiple times..

Any help would be greatly appreciated.




I was hoping someone would give me a little help with a problem I have. 

I want to activate a remotely controlled outlet that turns my dust collector on an off.  The remote has momentary switches for both the on and off functions.  I have connected these switches to a relay board that is connected to my pmdx-126 board. 

So, my question is, how do I get a m7 call to trigger one relay on the board long enough to fire the remote, then turn that relay back off.  When the call is made to turn the dust collector off, a second relay (the one connected to the off button on the remote) is also momentarily triggered.

I am trying to work out how to make an automated tool change occur.  I have been reading up on many different examples here, but I cannot seem to find a feature I would like. 

I would like mach to  go to a tool change location and wait for a manual change if a tool does not exist in the rack of prepared tools.  This would use the m6end macro and prompt for a cycle start after the change.

However, if the tool is present, I want the machine to make the change and not ask for a cycle start- but just continue with the new tool.

Any insight on how to do this?
