General Mach Discussion / using motoroutput as normal digital output
« on: November 19, 2008, 02:28:19 PM »
hi,

it is probably a silly question but I use mach with an I/O card with six motor outputs on it. for a my lathe i use only 2 of these motor outputs. what i need are a few more digital outputs to control things on my lathe. is it possible to use a normal motor output (step or direction) as a digital output.

thanks,

LazyTurn / Re: LazyTurn

hi, everything works fine on my computer (vista) except generating G-Code. when i import the Aouterprofile.dxf file, select tool and generate toolpath all is OK. when I generate G-Code lazyturn asks for the prolog and filename. after that notepad opens but without G-Code?

thanks

hi ray,

i have no schematics jet. i think you best start with the interfaceboard wich you would like to use. the berger lahr drives need a supply too. if you have the components you can connect them together and see if the drives will work.

thanks

hi anyone,

i think my problem is solved (with help of ron). using only "T5" on the MDI line starts the M6start macro. but the toolnumber is not interpreted correctly by the m6start macro. typing "M6 T0505" works well.

hope this will help others.

Hi ron,

I am doing quite well with my ATC for my emcoturn120 but i hope you can spend a little more time for me. my code is actually working completely as a button script. When I copy the code into the M6start macro, and I type T2 or another T6 request in the MDI the macrocode is executed but…..

If I type T6 in the MDI line, I would like to change to the sixed tool. How can I pick up the wanted toolnumber in my m6start code. As soon as I type T6 and the M6start.m1s is executed the “newtool=getselectedtool()” is forced to zero.

i did a little test with the next instruction in the M6start macro;

MsgBox ("newtool = " &GetSelectedTool())

if i type T3 in the MDI line, the m6start runs automatically but the selected tool is resetted to zero.

(i reinstalled mach3 and did no configuration changes; so it is a fresh an clean installation).

i hope you can help me again, i think i am almost there

Thanks for your reply.
