RIch here is the new screen . IF is is usefully I can recode the buttons to work correctly. IF I can figure out the TURN canned drill cycles (;-) (they do not work here for me)

I can tell you for sure IF you are not spot drilling the small holes your machine may eat the bits in auto mode AS there is no provision for a top spotting dwell (;-) and your tiny bits will either brake or start off center.

Been there as well, (;-) TP

Rich do the Normal drill cycles even work in TURN or do I not understand the Canned cycle FUnctions in turn??

I don't use turn much(;-), (;-) TP

In the first response you mentioned trim the ends of the stock  to start ??  trim length (;-)

The other DROs (;-) Others may want to use it as well (;-)

OK NOW the rub. You want mach3 to act like a dumb PLC which relies on the prox switches to tell it when it is ready or when it is to stop. MACH3 as a CNC controller does not like that type of control nor really allows that type of control in G code. IT really onlly like to follow directions (Gcode)

In CB macro yes BUT in macro mode mach3 is a terrible motion controller  as the Gcode/cb threads can slip out of sync.

IF we do all this in CB it MAY end up a nightmare to control OR to safely stop the machine. Even with Estop when you resume there is NO garrantee that the CB side will not restart on its OWN. YES that is a Mach3 safety bug.

I think it can be done using a Paramteric Gcode file to drive the move and cut AND have the CB side feed it  the variables. That MAY give us a way to see the prox switch and have Mach3 react in Sync.

SO basically it may be all G code driven or nothing (;-).  BUT we can work on it to see IF it can be done your way.

AS to individual axis  FRO ??   NOPE (;-) can't happen. But you can different feedrates for infeed and Cut feedrate.

Just a thought, (;-) TP

Rich THAT is the reason I asked about doing it in Mill mode rather than Turn. In Mill mode you have the full DEPENDABLE  USE of ALL the drill cycles NO so much in turn. (;-)

Piece of cake in MIll mode.

Russ How about something like this ??

This should get you started, (;-) TP



     'M31 macro
ActivateSignal(output1 )
If GetOemLed(825) Then
MsgBox"Probe already active,Reset and Retry"
End
Else
Code"G31 Z-10 F30"
While Ismoving()
Wend
End If


If NOT GetOemLed(825) Then
MsgBox"Probe failed to fire"
End
Else
DeactivateSignal(output1)
End If
End

Do you want it all in Machturn ? Or can I use MachMill (;-) Do you want a wizard or added to the turn screenset.

You do know that LES has that working in Scam (;-).

How about a Turn version of Copy Cat ? I call it SpinCopy . I worked on it for doing Spin forming and it is used to COPY the object to be spin formed.
