General Mach Discussion / Exploring NEW mach3 ideas.
« on: March 10, 2013, 01:22:44 PM »
Are there any more mach3 gizmo ideas that need exploring?

Just a thought, (;-) TP

Hi All,  Seeing how Les at SHEETCAM gave us the ability to create image files from our jobs I created
a Button function in MACH3 to be able to LOAD a Gcode file by viewing an image
file and making a selection to LOAD.

Button code and Screenshot of the function is in the MACH TOOL BOX section.

MACH TOOL BOX / Load Gcode file from an Image of part
« on: March 09, 2013, 10:48:20 PM »
Seeing how Les at SHEETCAM gave us the ability to create image files from our jobs I created
a Button function in MACH3 to be able to LOAD a Gcode file by viewing an image
file and making a selection to LOAD. The image and Gcode file MUST have the same
name of course and the function will LET YOU KNOW if it cannot find a gcode
under the image name you selected(;-).

You would need to add a new button to your screen and copy over the code to it
so it may not be for everyone. I could create a macro from it and you could just
call it from the MDI line, OR open for suggestions ???

If you are like me I have about a half a zillion Gcode files for plasma cutting.
After the first hundred or so gcode file names they all seem to run together
anymore. Memory is not the best anymore.

So now you can select the FIlename and View an image of it THEN if it is the
correct one load it into Mach3 and be ready to cut.

To use simply press the button and a veiw screen will pop up. Click on the file name you wish to view and the IMAGE will come up in the view window. Once you have found the correct file/image push the load button and the function will search the Gcode DIR and IF it finds a matching name it will load the program and CLOSE.

IF it does not find a match it will display a message and you can either cancel or select again.

HOPE it is helpful, I already use it in the shop for plasma cutting.

Here is what Load from BMP function screen looks like.

OK when I look at if from 100 miles away(;-) I saw the problem and have it running correctly now.

First you start off learning simple CB programming then you expand your skills and modify your running macros.

Hi ALL, I am working on a new file loader for MACh3 that uses images of afile to load gcode files. I am having trouble getting the Pushbutton"LoadGcode File" to work.  All the other componets work as needed.

From the screen you select the file from the listbox as you select the file the Program displays the IMAGE file on screen. when you find the correct file then you would push  the load G code file button and it will load a gcode file of the same name to mach3.

The part that I cannot get to function would be CASE 3. I cannot find a clear description as to HOW to get a pushButton to function as needed.

IF anyone has an idea or a suggestion please fill free to add to it to get it to work correctly.

We noticed the delay working with plasma cutting. Brian fixed the M3/M5 for verion .067.
Can't say about the rest of the Mcodes.

Just a thought, (;-) TP

Hi ALL, I have added several new button scripts to the MachToolBox.

One is a Gcode FIle Loader

The other is a tool to advance you to the next tool change(mill) in the loaded Gcode file

(;-) TP

In later versions of mach3 a Run delay crept in concerning Mcodes.
