I have been programming in gcode and I have set up all my offsets and tools in Mach3.  Is there a way to save all the setting from the various screens in the gcode file other then hand writing them?

Also I have a suggestion to create a forum for people to post projects that they have cut with Mach3.  You have a forum for machines but not what they produce.

Thanks.

Dan

Well it seams reasonable but you can download Mach3 for free and give it a try.

The driver for the Shuttlepro in under Downloads - FTP - Mach3 the file name is Shuttlepro.dll

Put the dll in your plugins folder under your local Mach3 install and then go into config plugin and activate and configure.

General Mach Discussion / Question about A axis feed rates
« on: September 17, 2006, 11:33:58 AM »
Wrote a program that cuts a design on a cylinder.  I use a feed rate of 2 only specifying it once at the beginning of the program.  When a line of code executes with a X and A move the feed rate looks to be 2 ipm on the X and the A moves quickly.  But when a line has only an A move the feed rate is very slow, it looks like 2 degrees per minute.

How can I make it so the A axis is has a constant feed rate (like the when it feeds with the X axis)?  Am I doing something wrong when I set up the feed rate? 

Thanks.

Dan.

Again not to technical but did you try hooking a printer up to the port?

I'm no expert but I think you should be able to see the PCI card under control panel - system - hardware - device manager check that is working there.

The motors will energize when power on and maybe you think they are locking up?  Sounds like they are not mounted.  Are you sure you are using the correct pin numbers and the axis' are enabled in the config?  I am guessing there is nothing wrong with the hardware just in your setup.

Goto downloads and then FTP then Mach3 it is shuttlepro.dll

Copy it to the plugin folder under mach3

open mach3 and goto config tab then to config plugins and activate it.  Click on right box to configure.
