Hi

I have a chinese 4-Axis controller card (XHC). I was trying to add a 5th-Axis with some brain commands for fast switching of an output pin, it should trigger when the imaginary axis steps. The problem is that this controller card blocks the movement of the axis. If I run Mach3 with the card disconnected it works perfectly, but as soon as I connect it again (without changing of any setting) it blocks all movement of the axis and therefore no braining possible. Is that normal that some controller tell Mach3 that there are e.g. only 4 Axis and therefore no movement for 5th axis possible?
Is there a way to trick Mach3 or the card?
Or is there nowadays another trick to directly trigger an output with a g-code command, without stopping other axis movement?

Cheers
