Thanks, but yes, it is licensed, about 10 years ago.

General Mach Discussion / Elapsed time stops counting
« on: January 17, 2020, 12:53:42 PM »
I don´t remember when it started, but the timer stops counting while cutting, not affecting anything else, but it would be nice to see the time.
I have been cutting the same toolpath 8 times today and the counter stoped after 03:42, another time after 03:45 minuttes.  About the same time every time with that code, but I can't se any suspicious commands in the code. 
I have been cuting 3 square holes, one gcode, and the timer stopped between cutting the 2. and the 3. square. Why not between the 1. and the 2. square?  It's doing the same thing.
Sometimes it stops cuting other gcodes after 45 minuttes, different time every time. 
Is there any theatment for that?

Thank you very much TPS.
I see.... I have changed  2  to 1.6 myself....I thought it was plate thickness.

4 days later I saw another post, where Greolt and Tweakie have suggested to type 1.6mm (my plate thickness), insted of GetUserDRO(1151), so it´s working now.

I've been trying to understand how it works, so I've downloaded Screen4 and opened the screenset.   I don't think I have UserDRO(1151).
Then I saw Greolts instruction, that I must create myself the UserDRO (1151).
I didn't do that, since it's working now,  but I'm very proud that I managed to create a working LED, right next to "Auto tool zero" button, that shows the Digitize state :-)

I'm also a kind of newbe.  Made my machine work 8 years ago and didn't touch anything since :-)
The Digitize light must be on when you touch the probe, and off if you don't touch it.  The light/led should also work without the script, in Diagnostics.
Port 1 pins current state - I have only 1 green light, out of 24 and my machine is working.   
Did you read the information ?
"Note that Mach3 versions below  R3.043.066 may not run the script correctly due to several unsupported Cypress Enable script functions.
Also note that you may have to disable Mach3's Z_Safe feature for the script to run correctly. "

The script may refer to another (older) version of Mach3.

General Mach Discussion / Touch off plate script, something is wrong
« on: November 25, 2019, 11:46:51 AM »
I have been using this script for 8 years ( thanks Greolt :-) ), but had to reinstall everything on a new HDD and now the scipt is not working as it should.
Instead of zeroing Z on top of my table, it's zeroing on top of my PCB.
My PCB is 1.6mm thick.
Is there something wrong with the script?

PlateThickness = GetUserDRO(1151) 'Z-plate thickness DRO

If GetOemLed (825)=0 Then 'Check to see if the probe is already grounded or faulty
DoOEMButton (1010) 'zero the Z axis so the probe move will start from here
Code "G4 P5" ' this delay gives me time to get from computer to hold probe in place
Code "G31Z-40 F60" 'probing move, can set the feed rate here as well as how far to move
While IsMoving() 'wait while it happens
ZProbePos = GetVar(2002) 'get the axact point the probe was hit
Code "G0 Z" &ZProbePos 'go back to that point, always a very small amount of overrun
While IsMoving ()
Call SetDro (1.6, PlateThickness) 'set the Z axis DRO to whatever is set as plate thickness
Code "G4 P0.25" 'Pause for Dro to update.
Code "G0 Z10" 'put the Z retract height you want here
Code "(Z axis is now zeroed)" 'puts this message in the status bar
Code "(Z-Plate is grounded, check connection and try again)" 'this goes in the status bar if aplicable
Exit Sub
End If

General Mach Discussion / Where is Auto tool zero script saved?
« on: November 09, 2019, 01:33:26 PM »
My Windows XP stopped working after power failure, so I connected the HDD as a slave to another computer.
I want to back up some things.
I have copied the xml file, but cannot find the auto tool zero macro. 
It's just a text file inserted in VB Script Editor, but I can't start Mach3 without Windows, to see the script. 
Do you know if I can find it somewhere in Mach3 folder?

General Mach Discussion / Re: Toolpath display
« on: August 13, 2014, 11:33:42 AM »
There is a Foamcutter screen, 5 years old, but its not working when I load it.
But you can see what he is cutting on the display. Just to axis, one tower.  My display is just some crossing lines and doesnt look like an airfoil.
Is there an option which axis I can see on the display?

I have 4 axis foam cutter, but it´s not showing my gcode path on the display correct.
The left tower of the cutter is A and Z axis.
The right tower is X and Y axis.
Horizontal axis are A and X, vertical Z and Y.

Is it possible just to see one towers Gcode path on the display?
Because I have made some changes to the Gcode and I would like to see if it looks right before cutting.
