G-Code, CAD, and CAM discussions / Re: Inside of the ring engraving
« on: May 17, 2018, 05:37:57 AM »
No need for rotating tools to go inside the ring just simple spring loaded diamond tipped drag. Technically I have no problem but how to code this task, I'm pretty sure there's some easy way of wrapping linear text code inside this ring on 4Th  axis. For example On Haas controller G47/G107 text or any profile can be wrapped at angle if needed on rotating axis.

Hello everyone.
I'm seasoned Mash user but been stuck with creating code for inside of the ring engraving on 4 axis machine. Outside is not a problem but inside of ring or in fact any concave part ( only a section of 60 degree of the ring is engraved) on 4 axis proof to be difficult. I routinely use RhinoCam with pretty solid cam package up to 5 axis tool path generation is a breeze but not the inside engraving. May someone have an elegant solution how??
Many thanks in advance

Hi Simon
Sorry my bad, didn't look at the date :-)
I see buttons as row and columns available on connector  was wondering if you have code as Im not sure if able to integrate this controller to mach. Second thing is how you integrate feed-rate override, with surely useful knob to have :-)  ? Is only if you remember :-) 
Thanks a bunch

I added Home/Limit switches to both axis and used a Cubloc 220 PLC to run the front panel switches via Modbus.

Hi Simon I have pretty much same panel but not clever enough to made use of it is there any way you can find a minuet and show the way how? Please. Bet there's number of this panels have not been used .

Question please,  when new system set up Mach3 Galil DMC 1800 ISA series (or ethernet 2200), does Mach3 need paralel port driver installed or not?
Many thanks in advance
P.S. (Still don't get understanding what is send to GALIL card from Mach3) Trying to optimise industrial Panel/PC for running Mach3 and Isa DMC1850 under Windows XP.

Thanks Hood
I understand the great idea to lower the shoke load on mains get distributed over switching the drives 1 at the time, slight picle with Mtsu there not enoth delay as I us diffeent power drives and they have diferent tme delays on they own and some time two 400W ones click together they trigger RCD right away  >:D.  Should I use just ordinary fuse?
