Brains Development / small brain slowing spindle speed
« on: December 04, 2007, 06:12:02 PM »
I wrote a simple brain to toggle flood on and off with the key "+". It works well except when activated it slows the spindle speed down briefly which on one occasion resulted in a stall. The driving computer is a 1G windows 2000. Is this just the result of robbing time from theCPU?

Thanks for the reply Tonyp, I did find the solution to the problem and as it is often said it was in the settings. I had my index debounce set too high and once set to "1" all works fine up to the Max RPM of 4000. The Brain that I added to control flood toggle from the key board also works very well. So Version R2.56.1 is all OK for My setup.

Spindle feedback control does not control and keeps increasing way beyond S*********X setting. All settings the same as in older versions and QUANTUM where spindle feedback control works perfectly. It seems to me that any version of MACH 3 with the BRAIN addition has this same problem. Has anyone had this problem and found the correction? I only updated to take advantage of "BRAINS" for additional keypad control of the "FLOOD TOGGLE" which works very well.

Brian,
Thank you for the reply, but after re-reading all of the currently posted documentation I am unable to locate Any reference to "Screwmapping" Is there any of the documentation from the time it was added available?

General Mach Discussion / Screw mapping
« on: January 05, 2007, 04:54:41 PM »
As I plan on upgrading my X2 by greatly increasing both X & Y travel with leadscrews, I may need to look at mapping the screws. I have looked at the MACH 3 Screwmapping function and understand what it does but am confused on how to use it. Are there any instructions or example of screwmapping available?

General Mach Discussion / New user needing help with Encoder interface
« on: October 05, 2006, 09:34:08 AM »
Have recieved the Encoder interface from Roger's Engineering. I can not get the screen, Build 7 and the Macropump into MACH 3. I only get a partial Program run screen and large block unreadable screens for toolpath and Offsets. Where can I get instructions on how to properly install these addons?
