General Mach Discussion / Re: Mach Z Axis dangerous behavior
« on: September 10, 2018, 10:34:14 AM »
Hi, ZASto,
I use mostly Protel 2.8 for pcb design.  But, because sometimes it makes mistakes when generating drill file, I use Altium Designer for generating drill file.
After this, I have my son's program, written in Python, to generate G-code for each drill diameter (Tool). Format is 2:3 absolute inch, none zero suppressed.
Also, I do preparation for my friend who has pcb production business and I have many different pcb design programs installed on my computer. Because, every client send pcb design in different program, and I need to accept and process it. But always mostly it ends with Protel (Simple and enough efficient).
Please, send me more info on your conversion software.

BTW, your nick name is familiar to me, don't knew where from. Which country are you living?

I posted all about problem just before this post.
I don knew if it is proceeded to forum.
Here is a copy:

Hi, I need emergency help.
Until now, for long time, my Mach1 on PCB drill machine worked correctly but short time ago I have serious problems with Z axis.
After random number of correctly drilled hole, X an Y axes start moving BEFORE Z axis is out of hole and break my drill bit or scratch the surface. Recently, this happens
mostly after 67th or 68th hole (does i matter?).
After this, at every next hole this bad behavior continues  and I must stop the machine.
I have freshly installed Win XP at Asus P5KPL-AM SE motherboard, 4 Gb RAM, 1 Tb Sata disk, Parallel port card in PCI slot. Mach1 is Ver. 1.996 licensed.
I attached file I drill with.
I tried to insert G98 after G81 but all was the same. Once was worse, Z axis continues to go UP behind zero point !
So, I'm stuck, can't work.
Appreciate any idea.

What really we get?

G-Code, CAD, and CAM discussions / Mach1 mill misses to drill holes
« on: March 22, 2015, 04:41:51 AM »
I have iregulary issue with my mill under Mach1. Sometimes it skips to drill some holes in the file and continues  to drill the others. When I check the drill file (looking at the listing) or with CNC viewer, all is ok.
So, I cant find where is the problem.
Any help will be appreciated.
There is a segment of drill file:

Hi all,

Any advice will be appreciated, possibly cheap.

General Mach Discussion / Re: SmoothStepper and THC

Hi BR,
I'd like to use old THC300. Maybe I can use SS for steppers and other things, and have another Parallel port for THC function as usual?

General Mach Discussion / SmoothStepper and THC
« on: December 24, 2010, 09:48:48 AM »
As I can see on forums, SmoothStepper doesn't support THC function on Parallel port 2.
Is there any solution if someone want smooth stepping without parallel ports?
Many new mainboards haven't good results on Drivertest.exe, I think because of the SMI function.
