Hi Hood,
There were no flashing buttons :( but.......
I took your code and created an m1s file and that works a treat. At least until I can get a reply from Big Tex I can use it.

Thanks very much for such a prompt reply and if you ever want to move down to Warrington so I can batter your head even more be my guest  :P



General Mach Discussion / Mach3 Outputs
« on: January 17, 2016, 03:48:59 PM »
Hi Guys, sorry if this is a really stupid question but I am really struggling.
I have a 5v Laser Cross hair I am trying to turn on and off in Mach3. I have connected it to +5v and pin 14 on port 2 of my BOB. I have setup "OUTPUT#1" to reflect this and when I change the Active Low state the Laser does indeed turn on and off but for the life of me I cannot work out how to activate the output from the Mach3 screenset.
I am using Big Tex' blue screenset and there is a button on this "Laser On" but I really can't find how to set it up.

Please help I have very little hair left :(



Ahhh, thats why I bought 2010 from you..................Right the card is going back for refund and I will have a look at the UC300 + BOB

Thanks Gerry

Hi Gerry, I guess you don't like the Chinese kit then lol

BTW I love using your 2010 Screenset :)


Hi All,
I have purchased a "Leafboy77" BOB and after pulling my hair out for a while I have found out that it does not support "Mach3 SLAVE".

I contacted the supplier and they did confirm this but they told me to simply connect the Y-Axis output to the 2 individual motor drivers. I can see this working but would like your opinion on whether or not it is acceptable to do this long term and if anyone could think of any implications.

The company has also offered a refund if I am not happy  :)

What would you all do?
