G-Code, CAD, and CAM discussions / Edit post for xy position move then z
« on: December 25, 2015, 05:33:43 PM »
This is what my gcode is coming out like:

G0 X-0.5662 Y0.9343 Z0.1000
G1   Z-0.1250 F30

I would like it to come out like this:

G0 X-0.5662 Y0.9343
G1   Z-0.1250 F30

This is what my post looks like:

; Set up program header
START = "(Material Size) (X=[XSIZE], Y=[YSIZE], Z=[ZMATERIAL])"
START = "(Tool Number:[T]) ([TOOLDESC])"
START = "G90G80G20G49"
START = "G0[ZH]"
; Program moves
FIRST_FEED_RATE_MOVE   = "G1 [X] [Y] [Z] [F]"
FEED_RATE_MOVE         = "[X] [Y] [Z]"
FIRST_CW_ARC_MOVE      = "G2 [X] [Y] [J] [F]"
CW_ARC_MOVE            = "G2 [X] [Y] [J]"
FIRST_CCW_ARC_MOVE     = "G3 [X] [Y] [J] [F]"
CCW_ARC_MOVE           = "G3 [X] [Y] [J]"
; End of file
END = "G0[ZH]"
END = "G0[XH][YH]"
END = "M30"
; M30 = program end and rewind

I have tried a bunch of different codes and i cant get it to post like i wans

Im sure its an easy fix.  Any help would be appreciated


Hi,  I have mach3 setup on my windows surface.  Everything works good with touch screen exept for the jog directional buttons.  Is there something special i have to do to get them to work.


General Mach Discussion / go to zero but only on x and y
« on: June 28, 2015, 10:07:06 PM »
Is there a way to click the go to zero button and have mach3 tell the maching to go to zero on only the x and y and NOT on the z.  I want the z to stay where its at and only go to work offset with x and y.  Thanks

General Mach Discussion / auto tool zero with limit switch
« on: June 28, 2015, 07:50:53 AM »
my machine came with 5 switches and i am only using 3.  I have seen many people setup a touch plate with wire and ground.  i was wondering if it was possible to just use one of the limit switches for this purpose.  Rig up the switch with a plate on top and set it under the tool and run the auto tool zero script.  Wont that work?

General Mach Discussion / Stop then start
« on: June 26, 2015, 09:42:42 PM »
Sometimes when i hit stop during a program run then hit start again Mach3 jumps to a differant part of program and ruins the part.  Its random.  Anyone have this same problem?

General Mach Discussion / Startup and shutdown sequence
« on: June 26, 2015, 02:19:59 PM »
Hi,  just wanted to know what the correct startup and shutdown sequence is.  I am using uc-100 controller.  Do i turn machine on then mach3 for startup and then for shutdown turn off mach3 and then machine?


General Mach Discussion / Soft limit activated on startup
« on: May 11, 2015, 12:14:31 AM »
I got all my soft limits setup good but im worried that i will forget to turn them on and the machine will overtravel.  Is there a way to have mach3 startup with the soft limit toggle on?


General Mach Discussion / A axis slaved to y question
« on: May 10, 2015, 12:20:29 AM »
I have 2 motors for y axis and so i have the a axis slaved to the y.  I noticed in the config-motor tuning that the y axis motor movement profile is differant from the a.  Should they be the same?  I have a cnc mogul machine.
