General Mach Discussion / Selecting pulley under Vb or Brains
« on: February 21, 2016, 05:16:18 PM »
is it possible to select pulley1 or pulley2 in Brains or VB?
i have a lathe with a gearbox and i can switch between two gears. I need to tell mach in what gear is the gearbox so it can apply a proper PWM pulse on the output.

Thank you!

I have run into a problem. I'm writing some brain functions for my lathe. And the brains became big and now i can't see what values i'm vriting into my blocks. Is there a way to zoom into some parts of the brain blocks?
And also does anyone experience problems with the - button? i can't seem to delete blocks?
Thank you!

VB and the development of wizards / VB scripts and Brains
« on: January 29, 2016, 05:43:41 PM »
Hello everybody!

This is my first post on the forum.

My friend has a lathe with a 12 position toolchanger. The machine is quite old and has a an outdated control computer. He asked me if we could upgrade it.
For the past few weeks i have been writing VB scripts and brain logic and changed the screen. everything was working perfectly when bench testing.
Now i got a Smoothstepper and when i configured it i get alot of errors.

The thing is im using OEMTriggers as internal variables to send bits from VB scripts to Brains. i don't use them as inputs to the outside world. But smoothstepper's plugin does not like that.
If i dong configure the OEMTriggers i get errors from the smoothstepper plugin.

My question is how can i send bits from VBscpripts to Brains and vice versa without using OEMTriggers?

This is a section from my M6start.m1s

DeActivateSignal(OUTPUT3) 'tool found
   While Not IsActive(OEMTRIG2)
     Message ("Waiting for confirmation - tool lock ")
   Message ("Tool ready")
   End If

The OEMTRIG2 is set high by the Brain and the Brain gets the signal from modbus.

What can i use instead of OEMTRIG or INPUT or OUTPUT. so i can link Brains to VB scripts?

Thank you.
