Hi, Paul

Post your DXF file. Seems like I looked at this before, But no DXF hear.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Halk

Glad your working now what did it take to fix it. ?

Give this file a try, Got side-tracked today.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Paul

What ver of Mach3 are you using see below, Rem-ed out 2 lines second tool change code.

What is the program you using for your view's hear ?

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Thejoose

Post your pin info for the P-port connection's and a copy of your .XML file.

Your XML file is the Name you start Mach3 with "Mach3Mill", "Mach3Plasma" or whatever you click on at Mach startup window.

It's located in the Mach3 folder " Mach3****.XML, Use Vista Explorer or Equivlent to find it.

Use the Reply button to post it with Additional Options, Browse and Attach.

Could be as simple as an Enable pin setting.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Scott

Nice job, Install went smouth, Screens are very nice, I may add a few buttons hear and there.

Thanks So-much for sharing it, All this takes time time time.

Thanks, Chip

General Mach Discussion / Re: Spindle Control

Hi, Csaba911

Looking at your info, Your interface board will only turn on & off your spindle by adding a solid state or larger relay to your Aux 1 output.

Your Proxon mill has a var resistor, I think controlling a power transistor for speed control, Don't think you'll be able to change direction though.

There are several boards that will control the speed by simulating the var resistor and use Mach's PWM output.

Can't think of the Mfg. at the moment, Some one will probally jump in about it.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, Art

I simplified the drawing, the other one was way way too much to deal with, Sorry about that.

When moving Start Point/Leadens around, LCam seems to be adding a second Entity to Chain's/Lines.

This is on a line, 2 leadens, If you Delete one, It removes part of the line.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Halk

Edit:-------------Halk this file below doesn't have any blended moves, I'll post one Later today ---------------!!

In my experience with 4th axis (using P-port hear) think your using G-rex, Anyway the limiting factor is the 4th axis speed for blended moves.

Pump it up as fast as you can in Vel. and Accel., Without losing steps, With 10 Micro-steps it's allot of steps compared to you other axis's.

I am using a sherline rotary table some 144,072 steps 360 deg. 1 full turn, ( set at 1 deg. 400.2 steps) 10 micro-step also vel 2500 accl 500.

A 1, 1/2, 5, 10 selectable cont. would speed it up using the 1 or 1/2 mode would speed it up.

Once you factor in the rotational Dia., I think you'll find it's OK, What's your planed use.

Try below file, 2.0 inch A dia. F25 may want to set it up or over ride speed

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Andy

Give this .LSET a try, It's a work in progress lset based on mill screens, Has Tab pop-out for lathe.

Running in Mill Mode, If you load the .lset mach3 switches to lathe XZ view and run's fine.

Or load Mach3Turn then load It with load Views.

I think it may ease your aggravation, Let me now.

Thanks, Chip
