Mach3 under Vista / How to have script running in the background?
« on: April 25, 2016, 10:55:15 AM »
I want to have a script constantly running while Mach3 is running, checking certain conditions and acting accordingly. Specifically, I want to halt all motion when the plasma torch is supposed to be on but isn't because the cutter stops when it overheats, has insufficient air pressure, or trips the circuit breaker. If something was constantly checking to make sure the Arc ON signal is active when OUTPUT1 is enabled I'd be golden. I tried having a custom M-code running an endless While loop (While 1>0) and initializing it a startup, but when I go to load G-code file the toolpath progress bar hangs and the toolpath isn't generated. Mach3 doesn't seem to be able to run more than one VB scripts at a time.
