LazyCam (Beta) / Drilling holes
« on: December 20, 2006, 10:57:40 PM »
OK, I know this must be simple but it's escaping me.  I have a dxf with two layers.  One layer has a the toolpath and one has holes to be drilled.  How do I drill the holes?  I've drawn the holes both as point markers and as circles and can't find the key to getting LC to drill them.
I'm using LC 2.635.
TIA,
Walt

Mach3 and G-Rex / Re: G100 Limit Inputs in MACH3
« on: December 14, 2006, 02:47:34 PM »
Kenneth,

I just got my limits sorted out.  Here's a little more complete explanation:

Go to Config>Config Plugins>G100 Plugin>Config>Real time Status Window.
It should look like the attached JPEG.  In the control logic section there is a row of 16 boxes that coincide with pins 1 thru 16 on the G100 and with the numbers 1 thru 16 when you enable an input in Ports&Pins>InputSignals.  They are labeled as pins currently being monitored for halt.  Below the row of 16, is a row of 6 boxes.  These coincide with the six limit switches X thru C on the G100 and with the numbers 17 thru 22 in Ports&Pins>InputSignals.  So, in my example JPEG, I have enabled the C++ and C-- limits and assigned Port 1, Pin 22.

If you look down below in Current IO Status you'll see the actual state of what is happening with the G100.  You want these two Status windows to agree.  Again, in my example, the C limit is check because I have a switch hooked up to it and the led on the G100 is lit.  If I activate the switch, the light on the G100 will go out, the check mark will disappear and the LEDs in the Diagnostics section of Mach3 will come on.

Regards,
Walt

I thought this macro was too simple for even me to get wrong.
I had it in the wrong directory.
I'll just slink away now............

VB and the development of wizards / ActivateSignal(OUTPUT1)
« on: December 12, 2006, 07:35:09 PM »
Hi All,

First post so I hope I'm in the right spot.

I'm in the rudimentary stages of setting up a G100 and wanted to write a few (what I thought would be) "simple" macros to control the outputs.

I first went into config/ports & pins/output signals and enabled output 1, 2, 3, and 4.  I set 1,2, and 3 active low, which on the G100, activates the LED's so I have 3 LED's on and 1 off.

I went to Notepad and put in the single line: ActivateSignal(OUTPUT1). I tried 2, 3 and 4 as well.  I saved it as M101.m1s. 

Needless to say, when run in Mach3, the G100 was unimpressed.  It sat there unblinking.  What am I missing??

Thanks,
Walt
