Mach4 General Discussion / Re: MACH4 - Modbus

HIYA Russ, From what I can tell EVERYTHING in LUA is case sensitive and it adds to the complexity of programming it.

A function for printing the tool table and fixture table.  OR just Export the table to a text file THEN we can print it in notepad from there. also the Test file could be imported into you CAM program.

Also an import function to import tool tables from CAM

Those are  working Mach3 functions as well.

A Load file from picture is nice at times. That is also a working Mach3 function that works VERY well with Sheetcam.

An Email alert would be nice.

In Mach3 we have an "email alert" (M3 call home) that emails you on ERROR or Program end.

Just a thought, (;-) TP

HIYA Steve could you consider rearranging the order of the tool table entry in the normal order that we enter data

TOOL#1     Diam , Description, Length, Wear Diam, wear Length

OR for future consideration of tool changers

TOOL#1     SLOT# , Diam , Description, Length, Wear Diam, Wear Length

IF you stand in front of a machine 10-12 hrs a day making it a little bit easier goes a LONG WAY

Just a thought, (;-) TP

Steve the keyboard plugin works well here I used it to create the XY joggging  from the arrows keys and the ALT key as the shift key.

Easy peasy , (;-) TP

2077
I thought sense the Keyboard plugin could call an internal function like X+ it should be able to call the internal functions such as Cycle start. 

But it seems it can't without Lua scripting.

Thanks (;-) TP

2078
HIYA Steve this is JUST a question but could the keyboard plugin be used to do FUNCTIONS other than just jogging things.

Say perhaps Gcode load ???    Cycle start   ,etc

(;-) TP

2079
HIYA Steve is there anything that may need testing ??

Mach4 General Discussion / Re: ScreenSet Question
« on: May 14, 2014, 12:10:16 PM »
HIYA Brian I do not think anyone here has a problem with telling you want they need/want (;-). And at this point everyone understands where Mach4 is and how much more it needs to be JUST to catch up with the other available controllers in this class AND M3.

Other controllers do not have a Screenset designer BUT they do have a DXF importer,  they do have FAST advanced 3 d probing, they do have toolpath transformation to correct for surface imperfections, conversational programming,  and much more.

AND YES it takes time, NOT a problem take as LONG as you need to make it competetive out of the box.  

I was asked to step back into the Mach world to test mach4 from MY perspective same as I did for Mach3. Mach4 has potential IF it is finished off to normal CNC standards of operation so that it appears NORMAL to them. THE Gcode side is nice now BUT there are many others than have a nice Gcode side as well.

IF you provide all the normal CNC functions up front AND with a good Gcode side I do not see the NEED to wonder off in the desert(WX.LUA) just to be able to get something working right. It will already been taken care of.


I know yous guys have work VERY HARD to get to this point. Take a breath and get back to finishing it up.  At this point take your time and look around to what everyone else is offering.  Get to take level at least.  YOu don't have to build a new LEXUS to begin with BUT you also do not want to build a Model T and HOPE it evolves into a Cadillac over time.That model worked well for MACH3 but will not for MAch4. There is far too many OTHER controllers that will fill the void.
