General Mach Discussion / Re: Turning Syntax
« on: May 26, 2009, 01:07:47 AM »
Hi, Kevin

In your Post is best in the long run, The big thing is setting Mach and leaving Mach in the same Control State after you've run different G Code files, So a good pre-amble to configure the Control is very Important.

There's a Initialization String in Config, General Configuration Page for Start-Up, But it doesn't treat the settings as separate line values, So it won't truly reset Mach in some case's, Probably one of the biggest Issues New User's Have.

In your posted code Snippet's I wasn't paying attention to your X axis setting's, There Backwards -X should move cutter left.

Hi, Kevin

You need to set IJ's to ABS mode ( put a pre-amble in the top of your code ).

Also changed the G02 to G03, What are you posting code with. ?

G90.1 ;----------IJ ABS set pre-amble

N03350 G00 Z-0.4
N03360 G01 X9.
N03370 Z-7.
N03380 X9.2
N03390 X19.8
N03400 G03 X21. Z-8.2 I19.8 K-8.2 ; G02 changed to G03
N03410 G00 X25.8
N03420 X25.885 Z0.323

Hi, Kevin

You've got a G01 in the code instead of a G03 or G02.

Hi, Joe

Maybe it won't be an issue after the next Revision, Art's still debugging LazyTurn's file loading routine's some.

It's getting better and better All the Time.

Hi, Joe

Hears 2 dxf's, LazyTurn doesn't seem to like the profile, Maybe Art will look at them.

Hi, Jack

Step output(+)---------[ 
Direction output(+)----[----- Connect, All to + 5 volt's.
Shutdown output(+)---[

Step Return(-)---------Step pin in Mach.
Direction return(-)----Direction pin in Mach.

Output Return(-)-------Gnd or to Enable Output pin in Mach. 

Should do what you need.

Hi, Jurgen

"Art" posted this some time back, " Sherline switches to 40us pulse width, so its a good test of pulse
width issues."

Hi, Jurgen

Sherline 1/2 step mode increases the pulse width to a greater value than 5 in motor tuning, Giving your stepper control
more Time to see the Pulses.

"Is it possible to fry a driver board with badly chosen parmeters in Mach3?", It shouldn't cause any problems like that with what you've done.

Hi, John

Re load your old xml and in ports & pins un check the CL mode, Check your port setting 378 also then check in Windows, Device Manager pic 1 and make sure the settings agree.

Sending you a PM message.

Hi, Jurgen

Post your (Mach3Mill.xml) profile file, Use the REPLY button then "Attach" option, You'll find it in C:\Mach3 folder.

There are only 2 combination's, First 2 pic's.

You should try pic 3 ( 5 & 5 ) in Motor Tuning and also Srerline Mode 1/2 step mode in Ports & Pins pic 4.
