I HAVE THE M11 COMMAND WORKING
IT IS TURNING PORT 1 ON AND OFF
I CAN CONTROL MY LASER ON AND OFF ALSO POWER UP AND DOWN WITH THE SPINDLE BUTTON OR DRO WHAT EVER ITS CALLED
MY MOTOR OUTPUT IS SET TO STEP PIN2   DIR PIN1    STEP PORT 1   DIR PORT1

SPINDLE SET UP I HAVE ENABLED RELAY CONTROLE OUTPUT1
WHEN I USE THE M11 COMMAND IT TURNS ON PORT 1
I HAVE OUTPORT 1 SET TO PORT1 PIN2

STILL CANT SEE WHAT I AM DOING WRONG

hi sorry for the delay in getting back to you had to go to work

when I have a look ie edit the m10 or m11 commands they look like this

rem #define DIGTRIGGER  0 rem #define ENABLE1     1 rem #define ENABLE2     2 rem #define ENABLE3     3 rem #define ENABLE4     4 rem #define ENABLE5     5 rem #define ENABLE6     6 rem #define EXTACT1     7 rem #define EXTACT2     8 rem #define EXTACT3     9  rem the following de-activates signal 9 (EXTACT3)  DeActivateSignal(  9 )

hi you lovely people
I am having trouble using the m10 and m11 commands
I have read a lot of threads but no luck
I am able to turn my laser on - off with the spindle or m3 m5 commands
in the motor outputs I have it set as step pin 2 step port 1
output signal is set to port1 pin3
spindle set up is use motor outputs pwm

so I tried m11p1
              g0 z1
to turn on laser and nothing

can somone please tell me what I am doing wrong

hi there peeps

I am having a problem with rotary machining
I think it might be the way I have mach3 set up
I have a file made in vetric aspire
when trying to machine this file at first I set a vector boundary beyond the file so as to machine all of it but when I machined it it put a deep gouge in the work
I read somewhere that I should make the file larger in width and machine to the edge
so I tried that it didn't work so I went back to the original file and just machined to the boundary
when I do the roughing pass it seems to go as expected
then I change tool re set the z axis and start the finishing pass
when it starts it starts in the wrong position
what am I doing wrong
also when saving the toolpath it says it will wrap around the y axis 361 deg is this correct I thought it would be 360 deg
