General Mach Discussion / Disable Generating Path on file load
« on: September 13, 2013, 11:53:04 AM »
Is there a way to disable Generating Path on file load? I am running Mach on a 3D printer and I am maxing out the specs on the laptop I use. File sizes are over 200MB.
If I hit cancel when the Generating Path dialog displays after the file loads, I can run the gcode without a problem. I regularly turn off the Tool Path display on these larger files as well.

thanks

Ok, let me elaborate a little.

I'm running a Reprap style 3d printer with Mach3. I have disabled E-stop on program end so that my setup does not E-stop when I load a new file. I have my heated elements running off of the spindle relay, and when an E-stop is triggered, my PID temperature controllers turn off and I have to wait for the PID to cycle before it comes back to temperature and settles.

But I do want the system to E-stop when a print is completed so that the heaters and controller turn off.

Is there a valid M code for E-stop? Wiki shows M112, but that doesn't seem to work in Mach3.

I have watchdog disabled.

Think I've got it by unchecking 'Turn Off Spindle' under Pgm End settings, and can add a M5 at the end of my gcode to turn turn off the spindle relay/heaters.
