Hi to all,

Just curious how we go about setting the home position with Lasyturn
and also how do we machine a simple profile without the tool going to
x0 and cutting of the stock at the end.

I have enclosed a picture of what I mean.
Tried so many things which didnt work.

So far excellent addon, simple and easy !  ;D

Any thoughts,
Thanks

Thanks,
But my router is controlled through a Vfd and would run at 18000rpm all the time.

What I would like is the opposite ,ie the rotary axis ran at max speed and then be able to control
the router spindle speed.

Iam thinking about just conecting a simple single phase motor thru a series of pullys to the 4th axis and
some way of disconecting the belt so I have a indexer and a lathe spindle,not high tech,but it should work.

Thanks for the info.

".......You can run a router and use the 4th axis in 'lathe' mode now unless you want to use Mach to control the router speed."

How is this Achieved. ????

I have looked far and wide throughout this thread and more .
I cant find how its  achieved running
both spindles togeather without the axis swap.

Iam after a solution like the very first post,ie
controlling A axis as a continuous spindle (lathe mode) and also using a router spindle
at the same time.


Any info would be great.

YES!!

Sorry to drag you guys trough all of this
But you are right one of the pins had to be
active High.
If I had known a bit more about Brains
I could have found that myself ,Sorry.

I had a felling that it was why the coloured boxes were
different in the initial inputs to brains??and
of course they are the same now,(no registered inputs).


Anyway working like a charm now,Thanks so much for your help.

NOw on to the next problem, No *********x in the fridge ,Bugger!

I think I found the problem,But Iam not sure how to fix it?
With that last brain you sent ,the z zero routine activates after
any  axis has been moved.
And every time you move a axis.

So somewhere in the and ,and input its getting into trouble.

Will keep trying.

Must go and have some Lunch.

Thanks For that Greg,
What I am trying to do is isolate the problem.
This will probably do for now though.

Thanks for all your help.

Is there any manuals on Brain,somewhere,
I can study up on,
I just had abit of ago then,but couldnt find
where you found/inputed ( and . and input.)
The rest  seems all straight forward ,,,sort of.

Thanks
Regards
