General Mach Discussion / Re: How does m code control plasma?

Hmmmm, the m3 command is definitely firing the torch, but Mach3 doesn't go into "feedhold". It just continues on regardless of a proper pierce or not.

1 torch comes down.
2 torch fires
3 a short delay i think allowing piercing
4 torch (still firing) cuts path.
5 torch stops firing at finish of path
6 torch raised

but I don't seem to have the handshaking right.

December 2015
After serveral trials and errors I have been able to compile some of the plugins using Visual Studio 2003 (academic version) installed on windows XP pro. I purchased vs2003 on ebay for about $60.  One plugin that won't compile is the Galil one.
 I also wonder how others can get it to work on later versions of Visual Studio.

Mach SDK plugin questions and answers. / error C3500
« on: January 12, 2015, 05:22:37 PM »
does anybody know what this error means. I get it as when I try to install and compile the first plugin example.

error C3500: invalid ProgID 'ShockwaveFlash.Sh c:\Win7\PLUGIN\SDK.2.62

its in Mach4View.h

the line is: #import "PROGID:ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash" No_Namespace raw_interface only.

After digging on google It seems to be something with not having a flash player installed on the computer, or the flash ocx, I gues it would also be important what version is required.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks

eek! does this mean that I have to go through the whole table setup again just to set up a plasma config? Is there an easier way?

I am trying to figure out how to connect up my mach3/smoothstepper/homann breakout/diy cnc table to my hypertherm45 plasma cutter.
At the moment I am only trying to fire the plasma cutter from g-code.

I can't figure out how it is done. It seems that people just use M3 and M5, but on my setup, that will only turn on my router which won't turn off till the job is done.

Do people edit these codes or something?


I'm new.
Looking over documentation and posts I am bewildered as to what version of visual studio I am supposed to use in order to compile mach3 plugins.
Any body got a clue?
