FAQs / Re: Whats is most actuate set up for limit switches
« on: June 26, 2015, 11:12:23 PM »
The most accurate way is to use a switch(your choice) to do a rough home to then use an encoder index mark to set the Actual HOME position. it is VERY accurate when used properly.

General Mach Discussion / Re: Stop then start
« on: June 26, 2015, 11:09:12 PM »
The proper stop proceedure is to first hit Feedhold and wait until it comes to a full stop THEN to use { Run From Here } to do a restart. Just remember that it restarts from the LAST LINE BEFORE the one that you stopped at. So make SURE you have a clear path to go BACK to that point.

Wes make SURE that the peck cycle DISTANCE is set correctly. IF it is too low you may not see it happen .

« on: June 25, 2015, 12:42:00 AM »
I tested your code here and it runs as it should . You do realize that teh G73 is a peck drilling cycle  The Z will cycle up and down all the way to the bottom of each hole to break chips. IF that is not what you want you may want to try another drill cycle. From your main run screen press the Gcodes button and it will bring up a charts of all teh cycles pick a cycle and it will describe each cycle and how the call works.

Just a thought, (;-) TP

Just so you know teh Sampling rate for the I/O with brains is NO faster than the Macropump BOTH run at 10hzs  ( 10 samples per sec).

General Mach Discussion / Re: Mach3 Major Bug?
« on: June 23, 2015, 12:33:44 AM »
HI Wes,  The problem with Mach3 as a Commercial contoller is there are a good number of bugs and odd things left in Mach3 that can ruin parts and break tools and tear up hardware.

Tool comp has problems, Subs have problems G2 and G3 CAN have problems . The Z is know to run away from time to time(;-)

AND it will never be fixed (;(

There are also OEMs packing up and leaving Mach3 because there is no hope for it to ever get fixed. In mach3's  idles years the competition Zoomed right on by .

SO I leave it classed for simple DIY users (;-) , There is does well.

HIYA Wes, I am glad you got it sorted out. Mach3 was built for the general DIY users and there are many things based on general DIY CNC knowledge. BUT mach3 is capable of PRECISE ACCURACY if you know how to extract it.

Good job on the gear work.  Have you tried Arts Gearotic motion program ?

I did not take it as nasty(;-) I just needed a bit of perspective as to how you were using the values.

 SOMETIMES I get a question like this and they have build a presicion CNC out of 2x4s using threaded rod for screws and complain about not getting 0.00000000001 accuracy cutting nylon and they know it for sure because they have a $5 plastic caliper and the part is not coming out to the .0000001 in a shed that is at about 200deg F and 96% Humidity. (;-)

YEP you found one of the answers the other would be to use format . The actual values that mach3 use internally are very large decimal wise. TO use them with YOUR accuracy you have to intervene and set the needed resolution or limit the rounding as you did. Otherwise Mach may just rounds UP to the DRO display resolution.

To be sure I would round to the 5th instead of the 4th. GEARS need to be precise.

I like your thinking (;-)

What you are seeing in the Dell is the variable speed processor working. THAT IS one of the reasons WHY laptops are NOT recommended for Mach3 as a general RULE.
