We bought a used Lobo CNC router that originally had a tool changer at the back end of the machine.  We would like to set one up but the M6start file and M6end file is missing.  We were told by the previous owner that it had a tool changer when it was built for him but it was removed before shipping as he didn't need one. 

Link to the machine we have:

If anyone has this machine or a similar machine i would like to get this file from you?


Thank you

General Mach Discussion / Tool changer setup using mach
« on: February 01, 2010, 09:16:40 AM »
Hey everyone,
I bought a CNC router that has been used with a tool changer bay/rack.  The rack/bay is missing but i would like to set it up.  I'm not sure as how to approach this, the company this router came from had setup the tool change sequence but it's beyond the limit switch.  The machine can physically go beyond the limit switch but i don't know how to tell the machine to do this.  Any help would be much appreciated.

General Mach Discussion / pocket macro in g-code form
« on: July 20, 2009, 09:30:58 AM »
Does anyone have a pocket macro in g-code (fanuc or mach) style?  Looking for something that will have a length, width, depth x,y position. Any and all help would be much appreciated.

General Mach Discussion / AXYZ CNC router conversion
« on: September 26, 2008, 05:02:20 PM »
I would like to convert an AXYZ Automation Inc. CNC router to run on Mach3.  I know the machine has a step motor so I think it is possible but am not sure as to the steps I need to take.  If anyone has converted one of these machines I would love to hear from you. 

The reason why I'm converting is for a client that needs a more user friendly control software than the TOOLPATH control software supplied with the machine.  The machine is manufactured in Canada.

Thanks
Alex

Where are # variables stored? Can the result be viewed?  If i define a variable as in the example below where is the variable and/or result stored?

The variables are read by Mach3 with no errors in format in the program below but I would like to know if the results are what I need.

#100=15(----RADIUS-----)
#101=24(----CORD WIDTH------)
#102=2.4032(x-addition)
#103=[#101+#102*2](-----X CORD with addition--------)
#104=0
#105=0
#106=0
#107=0
#108=0
#109=0
#110=[2*[ASIN[#101/[2*#100]]]] (-----THETA----)
#111=[#100*COS[#110/2]] (-----D------)
#112=[#100-#111](-------H-------)
(--------------------------------------------------------------------)
#120=[2*[ASIN[#103/[2*#100]]]] (----THETA----)
#121=[#100*COS[#120/2]]
#122=[#100-#121](-------H-------)
#123=[#122-#112](------Y-AXIS-APPROACH-DISTANCE-----)


Thank you

General Mach Discussion / Time In and machine will not move.
« on: February 23, 2008, 08:36:22 PM »
Please explain the "Time In int" function?  What does it mean?  My machine will not move but dro's are showing values changing.  My Time in Int reads 20-24.
On another computer it is between 9-10 and axis move and everything is working.  The computer that it works on is owned by the person that sold us the controller.  Checked all computer settings and between the two computers and everything is the same.
Voltage reading is twice as high on the step pin as on the computer that works.

Please help, as we have been trying for a week with no success.

Thank you,
Alex

Hi all,
Wow, it's looking as if Mach3 is becoming the Fanuc of the small to medium machine control market.  Amazing product by the way!!!

I'm looking for a way to quickly convert the value of one of my axis, Y or X,  from linear movement to angular movement for a rotary axis.  Is there a function in Mach3 that can perform this code change quickly?  I know how to mathematicaly calculate this, but as you can imagine converting hundreds of lines of code is time consuming to say the least.  The CAM software I have does not have rotary axis capabilities.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

General Mach Discussion / Ellipse macro for Mach users
« on: July 30, 2007, 06:56:28 PM »
Here is a macro I wrote for cutting an ellipse(oval).  I already tested this out on my Mach3 controlled CNC router and it works great.  I wrote this macro about 10 years ago
when I was playing around with Fanuc macro B programming.  I use it at work for quick cuts.  It normally uses IF and WHILE commands so I replaced this with a sub call.  Just fill in your lenth, width, board thickness, center position etc.  If you make the width and depth the same you will make a circle.

I'm trying to setup a nema23 brake on the z-axis to prevent it from
moving down when the power is turned off to the machine. The machine
is a Techno isel and the control I'm trying to setup is from a company
called camtronics. It is a servo system. Any help would be much
appreciated.

Thanks,
Alex
