I have a problem i hope you can help me. i have two buttons for a 3 axis router table that is converted to glue a part there are two other buttons i am going to use a key emulator to make these buttons work like keyboard buttons. now i want to create a way that button number 1 runs top of a part and button two runs bottom of part. and be albe to do this for several programs. i envision a macro or a goto or skip or jump command to allow me to with button two pressed jump to a specific line in the program which will run the bottom routine. or lower half of the program above the skip to line there is an m0 command to pause the program. so the machine will pause.

the first button or button one will reset program to first line. this way i can press button one or two and the machine will perform the top of part operation or the bottom of part operation no matter which order i press it will just run one or the other in any order.

so button one first line then cycle start. pause at end of top routine. i press button one again it resets to top of program and runs top part again. arives mo and waits i can press 1 again or i can press two if i press two i runs bottom routine after the mo. when it gets to end of that half there is an m30 program reloads to top.
if i press button tow it will jump to the first m0 and runs bottom half of program. hope this is not too confusing. can you help? basically all i need to do this myself is a skip or goto that will allow me to tell it where to go in the gcode.


General Mach Discussion / Blue screen tool change macro "off"
« on: January 17, 2017, 04:26:46 AM »
I have the blue screen setup from bigtex and I have a small issue - after a tool change my job z setting is off by 0.05" in the positive and I'm not sure what setting to adjust to fix it. It taps off the movable plate (0.5" thick and set up in the macro) and then the fixed plate - and when it goes to cut its off by 0.05" (cutting too shallow).
Thanks in advance for your help.

I am working on a cnc plasma machine controlled by mach3. All motors are leadshine closed loop.
If the drives go into error, I want the machine to stop all motion until that error is fixed.

I wired the fault output of the drives to 4 different inputs. In ports & pins I configured them as input #1 to #4.

Can anyone help me on how to generate different errors for different drives, and to block all motion until the error is fixed.
Should this be done in the macropump? And what would the code look like?
I should tell that I have no experience with VB scripts yet, and only little with mach3 so far.
