General Mach Discussion / Slave axis control
« on: December 08, 2020, 06:39:37 AM »

Is there any way i can lock the rotation direction for the slave axis. My application is intended to mill model engine cranks and cam shafts so while the Z and Y axis perform a circular motion the A axis needs to be sincronized with the Y axis and always turn in one direction even when the Y axis reverses during the circular motion. Also if anyone can give me an idea as to how to sincronize the A axis it would be great.
Thank you in advance for your help

Kenneth Yes in fact the macro is intended to move the Z axis down by 0.1mm per rev of the Aaxis.

ger21 Will try to remove last line and see what happens.

Can you suggest what i can do. As above i need to feed the Z axis by 0.1mm for every revolution of the A axis.
A axis is just permanently revolving under command from INPUT 1 hardwired to a switch. So program reads Aaxis DRO and at intervals of 360
feeds down the Z axis.

Why dose Mach stop responding to keyboard commands for axis movement when i activate a macropump.
The macropump i installed is very simple.

If A/360 = Int(A/360)
code "G1 Z"& L

Any help appreciated :)

Hi Hood

Strange indeed.

The only thing i found was some G00 commands at a very high speed way above what the motor maximum is configured.
I edited these and the problem never came back.
I am trying out Vectric CUT3D using some of the demo files they have and apart from this all looks well.

While cutting a 3d model Mach just closed and the PC preceded to shut down.
This it did twice.
I checked windows settings regarding hibernation etc and all the settings are switched off including screen saver.
I am using Windoes XP.

Hi Hood

Long time no speak

In fact i found out that the profiles are stored in the  .xml files.
I renamed these to lathe machine name to make sure i am loading the correct one.
As to the shortcuts are these to refer to the .xml files?

Hi guys

I have one PC a small mill and an engraver.
The mill and engraver have different configuration and motor tune up settings.
Is there a way that i can choose the machine after i load Mach 3 ?

I have seen some commercial stuff but the prices are well beyond my reach.
I am thinking of building my own.
For blind material i think i will use rubber gasket material and make a couple of rollers with coil springs.
My travel for X axis is only about 300mm anyway.
