General Mach Discussion / Re: XML file for MaxNC MAXPATH42
« on: March 22, 2014, 04:46:28 AM »
OK, I've got a working XML file for the MAXPATH42.

I've uploaded it to the "Downloads" section if anyone would like a copy.

XML files / XML file for MaxNC MAXPATH42
« on: March 22, 2014, 04:42:22 AM »
I just finished converting a MAXPATH42 from MAXNC control to MACH3.

I thought others might find the XML file I created useful.

OK.  I'm making headway on the XML for the Maxpath42.  One thing in particular is a problem.  The Maxpath42 limit/home switches use only two inputs. One for Positive and one for negative with the three switches (X,Y&Z) wired in series.  This works OK for Homing, because only one axis moves at a time.  However, the Verify function has a problem with this setup.  Since all the axes move at once, the first one to trip the Home/Limit switch causes the system to think that all axes have hit their respective switch.

Is there a way to get the Verify function to perform like the Ref All function and only move one axis at a time?

That was too easy.   I was trying to make it much harder ;-)

Thanks Hood!

I was looking at the ftp download pages just now.  I found several interesting documents there.  There are also XML files for other MaxNC machines.  I was going to download them to possibly use as a starting point, but can't figure out how to download them....yet.

I'm trying to.  I convinced a friend he should convert to Mach3, but I hadn't considered that I don't have any documentation on the pinouts for the MaxPath 42 controller.

I'm searching for that info now.  If/When I get it done, I'll post it in the Downloads section.

Just wondering if anyone out there has an XML file for MaxNC's MAXPATH42.

General Mach Discussion / Re: Problems with screen size after update
« on: June 05, 2013, 05:51:45 PM »
That was it.  I had tried maximizing before and it simply expanded the window but the Mach screen itself stayed the same size....so I had always switched it back.  This time I closed Mach with the window maximized (even though the Mach screen was still undersized) and then restarted..... it now fills the screen.

Thanks for making me think!

I closed and restarted Mach3 and I even rebooted the computer.  No luck.

General Mach Discussion / Problems with screen size after update
« on: June 05, 2013, 03:44:06 PM »
I just updated from 3.042.020 to 3.043.066 and the Mach screen no longer fills my monitor.  I am using the same XML that I was using with the old version and Auto Screen Enlarge is checked on the General Config page, but the Mach screen is no longer filling my monitor screen.  I copied the Mach folder before the update and if I run the old version of Mach, the auto enlarge works.   Can anyone help?
