Thank you sir, this will save me a lot of time and tree carcasses.

VB and the development of wizards / Tracing an object
« on: February 26, 2018, 06:12:09 PM »
I am having a problem with a small bit of code and am hoping someone can help me.
I have some special maple and yew burls and slabs I need to trace so I mount one on the table and trace it using the
crosshairs in the video window. Until now I have been writing the dros down on paper and inputting them into Aspire
by hand.
That was ok before but now I have been given 5 more to do, so with your help, I would like to use a button to
record the dro to a file so I can speed things up a bit.
So far I have gotten the code into the button and it writes to the file but when I try to write the next line to the
file it overwrites the last line, could someone please have a look and tell me what I am missing?

Sub Main ()
Open "L:\test\TESTFILE.txt" For Output As #1 ' Open to write file.

   X = GetOEMDRO (800)
   Y = GetOEMDRO (801)
   Z = GetOEMDRO (802)

Write #1, X, Y, Z

Close #1

End Sub               

With many thanks; Herman

Aspire has a post processor editor that will allow you to edit your Mach processor, I haven't had to use it for a while but the instructions to insert an M call is well documented on the Vectric website.

I've been trying to set up my cnc for printing too, and as far as I can tell Simplify and Replicator and the other slicing programs define the extruder as "E" axis, so all I did is start a seperate profile in Mach and renamed E to A in the g code, the -1 and +1 you see are a retraction or feed of + or - 1 unit to prevent the plastic from drooling, so you don't get little strings of material every time it lifts the hot end. So far so good, now all I have to do is figure out the PID temperature controller.

Ive been using version 62 for about a year it seems fairly stable. I reused the xml in my backup. Nothing changed on the machine so there was no need to change anything in the settings. The only thing I changed was turning off the wi-fi connection so windows wouldnt update and mess with the settings.

I had the same problem with my xml getting wiped, turned out to be, in my case, a windows problem, caused by a corrupt registry. Just a thought :)

Hi Ive been using it for about a year, it is basically an autocad Knock off but with a lot less features, Im no expert by any stretch of the imagination but my brother ( a draftsman) likes it and after trying a few other programs I settled on corelcad because of the relatively low price and ease of use.
