I am looking for someone to collaborate with me on developing a way to use the z axis with a traditional lever (drill press type) switch over from the mpg.  Someone who has experience with the mpg and Mach3 would be needed.  Contact via email to discuss further

I'm not familiar with them--I guess they are the s/ware team for Mach?

I'm using servo motors with a Galil board--totally different hardware.  The only thing common to both is the s/w.

You're right!!  If I release the shift key the wrong way it always hangs up.  This is a software issue with Mach3.  How does this bug get passed on the Artsoft?

I haven't tried the release of the shift key before the axis arrow, so I can't say.  I will do that Monday.  Interestingly, I ran multiple parts today and it didn't happen once.  It well could be I released the axis before the shift today. This machine has no external controllers, uses a Galil board and no pendant.  I think the Galil board is a quality board from what I know of electronics and not a junker from China.  It may be a Mach3 bug perhaps.  Yes we can merge threads, although I don't know how to do that.

General Mach Discussion / jog lockup

I am running  Mach3 ver R3.042.040.  Sometimes when running a fast jog (shift arrow keys) the fast travel doesn't stop when I release the keys.  A couple of times this has been very scary.  The keyboard is fine, and it has happened on all 3 axis.  I am running servos with a Galil board.  Any ideas?

Galil / galil 17xx and mach 3 setup
« on: July 20, 2012, 08:46:56 AM »
I have a Galil 17xx ISA board with 100 pin connector cable running to an ICM-2900 module.  How do I configure the ports for the home X,Y,Z inputs?  The pin number and port numbers are 0.  I don't see anything in the instructions that indicate how to assign these for the ISA version only the LPT version.  If you could also instruct on how to wire in the home swithch I would appreciate it.  Do I need to see how the limit switches are set up--sinking or sourcing current for the limit switches and match them?

Thanks, but I'm on the shore in Guilford.  If you ever get down this way  or know anyone here please let me know.

I did a system reset and now there seems to be some control restored.  It still doesn't perform as required however.  I would like to find someone in the area who could look at it for me and suggest a remedy.
