DId you verify that it KEPT the same POST when you did the update?

I alway follow the rule "IF it ain't broke and I don't need it DON"T fix it" or update it(;-)

Here is the process for the part preview function. Once in place you load up your Gocde file then set X0Y0 and make sure the Z is at a safe travel height. Press the preview run button. The machine will travel the outside profile of the part. When complete the program rewinds back to teh start. You can run it as many times as you like if you need to shift the metal around OR use the G68 function to rotate the program to fit the material.

When you have finished alignment just press Cycle start as normal .

I GUESS we really need to start a master Scam post for mach3 plasma with all the goodies built in.

Modify your SheetCam Post(;-)

ADD to


 OnPenDown()

 if  (string.find(operationName, _("Outside Offset") )) then
     post.TextDirect("o549 \n")
     post.Text (" X")
     post.Number (Sline1,"0.0000")
     post.Text(" Y")
     post.Number (Sline2,"0.0000")
     post.Eol()
   end


ADD TO  OnRapid()

   Sline1 =  (endX * scale)
   Sline2 =  (endY * scale)


Mach3  PREVIEW  BUTTON macro CODE************************

'Macro To AutoPreview

 Msg="Is Your Z HEIGHT Safe To Travel AND X0Y0 set?"
Response = MsgBox(Msg, 4 )
If Response = 7 Then

IF you need help or get stuck give us a holler.

How about a preview function for plasma where you can load a program push a button and it will run(torch off)  the outside profile of the part as a preview of where it will cut. Just a simple Scam post mod AND a new screen button(;-)

I have a full bag of tricks for plasma.

Just a thought, (;-) TP

HAve you found the problem yet?

OH you can modify the XML but it won't change anything as to how the core of MACH3 works.

I don't think you will see ANY major changes to MACH3, maybe for Mach4 in the future.

I would just decide on HOW you want to see it and then ADD the 2 DROs to your screen. Then run a program and make sure it updates to the DROs. Once that works you have the CAT by the tail.

I normall put a set of the DROS on the main work screen. That way you can see what the running total is ON the nozzle and tip. You will notice that after you mod the Scam post that the LAST message in the program shows the Programed values for  Cutinches and #pierce. It is that way because WHEN you load a new CUT program MACH parses through ALL the messages and LEAVES that LAST ONE in the file visable in the STATUS bar. (;-)

NOw you loaded the new cut program and just look at the totals on your  consumables AND add the status bar to see HOW MANY inches and pierces that program will add . NOW through your history of consumables you KNOW that chances are good that you may have to stop and change out a tip You can decide to change it out NOW. I know sometimes we cut ARTSY part that may take an hour to run to completion. Having a nozzle wear out in the procees sometimes DEGRADES the part quality.

NOW can you track multiple consumable sets (finecut,40amp,60amp ,etc) SURE it just takes more time to set it all up.

Just take your time and get it worked OUT as how you want to see it all THEN we can work on the particulars(;-) Nothing in this is overly complicated to work out.

Here whit every event it writes to A FIle AND REPORTS.

OK next you need to decide HOW you want to look at the info. Main page , Add on to an existing page or create a new page. Then to start you need to ADD the 2 DROS I used USERDRO(2000) and USerDro(2001) you can use what you like to use. You just match the 2 to the M1030 macro calls to update them. ONCE you have the dros on screen THEN everytime you run a program and the M30 runs you will see updated values on the  DROs. It just adds the Program values to the Existing total.

Get that part going and we will move ahead.(;-)

DID you put it in the exact same directory as the old version or create a new copy in another directory?
