General Mach Discussion / Re: I Need a macro written will pay.

cheers OL yes ive tried using a laser proxy sensor mounted on a high speed z axis but although succesfull and accurate, it is still a time consuming process.
hopefully we can get to grips with the hardware/software in this method because i feel that the bed of nails method of scanning/digitizing is superior when it comes to accuracy to other
systems, certainly systems that are within the scope of the home machinist .

Tony

Thats great Thomas,
   I dont know if this has even been done before. could be new ground were treading on.
Are you proficiant with software writing? if not then we will need someone else for sure.
  ill try and download the full manuals as well although i cant promise ill understand them!

Regards

Thomas,
    the plan/experiment is to be able to take lasers output and replace the z axis position in the digitizing program.
 You would zero the X&Y as usual through mach on the servos, but z would just be there as a bracket to hold the laser it does not move,apart from initial set up to zero the laser.
The laser would be zeroed on the bed of the machine or another conveniant known point, that could also be the highest or lowest point on the job to be scanned.
obviosly if you zero the laser on the bed or lowest point you would zero close to its maximum sensing distance, and vice versa.
  So if you put a say 25mm block under the laser it would read +25mm on the output of the laser, and so on.
You would run a digitizing program very similar to and possibly based on arts program, but instead of the z axis going up and down "probing" at every step,
 the laser would be triggered or read at each x-y position and then that figure would be put into
the digitizing points cloud file as the z cordinate.
    This would increase the scanning speed immensly but still retain high accuracy.
Hope that makes sense ?

Regards
 Tony

   Thanks again for your help

  Thomas thanks for your interest I do appreciate it.
   The motion controller is a uc300 usb  from cnc drives,
the IL 1000 im not so sure on as I cant see any referance to type of output.
there is a pin out list on it but it just says analog out ?
serial number is:
#f2f211308 if that helps?
maybe you can set it for volts or amps? via its menu?

  As an aside I have quite a bit of experiance building electronic circuits and messing with pics and ardueno's if that helps

Regards

And the amplifier a il1000 not sure how you upload the specsheet but its all available on keyances site

Hi Yes the sensor is a keyance il300 .

Well I have a keyance measuring laser which will output some industry standard communication via its amplifier, so I guess that's a good start!

Hi ,
     I want to connect a measuring laser to mach3 to be used in a bed of nails type scanner rather than nodding the "Z" axis up and down mach would read the output of the laser .
I'd be happy to pay for the work and any electronics needed to interface. I'm in the UK.

Got it all going now , software was straight forward and the system for what it cost produces excellent results.

Hi ,is stirlings 3d probing software still available? I've read good things about it.
