General Mach Discussion / Re: Plasma tube cutting
« on: December 21, 2010, 05:03:40 AM »
I just need for start a simple gcode in order to cut for example a 50mm diameter hole.
The rotating axis will be the A and will be parallel to Y axis. the X axis want move.

General Mach Discussion / Plasma tube cutting
« on: December 20, 2010, 05:33:22 PM »
Hello everyone
I'm building a flatbed plasma cutting machine, and i want to be able to cut holes on a tube, also.
The tube will be parallel to the Y axis and rotated probably from axis A with an extra servo driver/motor.
My question is how to configure mach3 to use either axis A or X depending if i want to cut a hole on a tube surface or just a normal sheet metal X,Y plane.
Also i need somehow to give the information to mach3 of the diameter of the tube in order to calculate the right feedrate and the steps per inch/mm for every different tube diameter i will cut.
Any help will be appreciated.

That explains everything, why isn't this documented in the installation manual?
Thank a lot Hood.

Hello Hood.
I'm using servo drives witch accept step and direction pulses.
This was the only configuration on mach3 that i get the right pulses to my drives.If i don't select it then i don't get pulses i need.
I really don't know what a Max CL machine is.

Arturod i try the version .036, even the version 1.84.. but exactly the same results.
I forget to mention the the option "Max CL mode enabled" is selected.

I try another motherboard,same brand, same P/N and i get the same results.
No mater how i program the motor pins for the X axis or Y the keep pulsing at the output pins 4,5.
When i program this at the second parallel port everything is ok.
Should i program at the bios setup level the parallel port somehow else?
I just set it as a normal and not EPP, or bidirectional.
For the history the motherboard is a Kontron 886LCD/ATX(GV), but i already try three of them and i always get the same results.
Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you tweake very much for the utility, but it just show me exactly what is happen at the port.
It does not matter if i program 2 & 3 pins it just keep pulsing only pins 4 & 5 and 6 & 7, although i program axis X 2 & 3 pins, port 1 and for axis Y 4 & 5 pins port 1. There is now way i can make the pins 2 & 3 work.

What do you mean with disabled?
I enable them in the menu pins & ports, as i did with pins 4&5 or do i have to enable them somewhere else?

Hi everybody.
I can't get the output pins 2 & 3 make them work.
I try to set them in the port and pins menu, as motor X pulse & direction outputs but nothing happens.
If i try the same at pins 4 and 5 or 6 and 7 everything works fine.
What is so special with this to pins 2&3 that they don't operate?
Has anyone any ideas?

Hi Whacko
I'm facing a similar problem with my plasma flatbed.
I want by pressing  the Feed hold button also to stop the plasma arc.
I was thinking by using the M5 gcode, but i don't now how.
Can you explain me your solution, to that problem, as you write before you manage to fix this.
Thank you in advance.
