I can't seem to find find the Brains User's Guide that Scott mentioned here. http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic,16894.0.html

Scots quote:   "You need to set your modbus in brains correctly: Please READ the "Brains User's Guide" under member docs...."

Thanks for any help.

How precision? How about a ring gear from a car engine and press fitting it on to your table. adjustable pinion gear for backlash. Cogged belt reduction for torque absorption?

I don't know how big is big for your ID but lets say you used a 4 diametral pitch, 64 tooth, 16" OD off the shelf brass Boston Gear worm (G1105) and bored the center out of it and bolted it to your table. The worm shaft bearings could be adjustable axially to minimize backlash. $500 bucks from Motion Industries.

Rcc, if all you want is not to have an operator edit the script how about using Screen4 and disabling “VB Script function edited in Mach3” for the button you’re concerned about?

I'm trying to insert a picture here but can't figure out how to do it.

I have searched the forums and Mach Customize Wiki for more info on compiled macros and this is the only thread with a reference to it. How would you use a compiled macro differently than an .m1s macro? Thanks for any help. Tony

VB and the development of wizards / Re: GoTo Statment?
« on: June 28, 2011, 07:38:20 AM »
Thanks for all of your help. You are right, the GoTo statement has to be in a Sub or procedure. I guess what through me was that on page 9 it reads “The program execution jumps to the part of the program that begins with the label "Label1:". “

From VBEnduser.pdf
“Branches unconditionally and without return to a specified label in a
procedure. “

From VB-Script-Commands.pdf on  page 9
“The program execution jumps to the part of the program that begins
with the label "Label1:". “

From VB-Script-Commands.pdf on  page 84
Branches unconditionally and without return to a specified label in a
procedure.

One says Program, one says procedure.

VB and the development of wizards / GoTo Statment?
« on: June 27, 2011, 08:42:23 AM »
I’m trying to set up a branching statement in a Macropump. I’m testing the following code in the VB Script Editor. I get this error message when executed: “Error on line 7- Label not defined” If I put the Label before the GoTo statement it will branch.

Dim torch As String
torch = isoutputactive(output1)
If torch = "true" Then
MsgBox "   Back to manual control "
   
   GoTo test
   
End If
Print torch
test:
Print "Ended"   

The following from VB-Script-commands.pdf.

"Cypress Enable has complete process control functionality.  The
control structures available are Do loops, While loops, For loops,
Select Case, If Then , and If Then Else.  In addition, Cypress Enable
has one branching statement:  GoTo. The Goto Statement branches to
the label specified in the Goto Statement.
 
Goto label1
  .
  .
  .
 
label1:
 
The program execution jumps to the part of the program that begins
with the label "Label1:". "

Also is using Subs good practice in a Macropump.
I would appreciate a copy on someone’s macropump code that has Lables and Subs in it.
Thanks for any help in advance.
Tony
