General Mach Discussion / Re: G92 and G52 - How SHOULD They Work?
« on: January 30, 2012, 03:15:19 PM »
With Mach3 it is NOT a good idea to use BOTH at the same time.  Many controllers use the G92/52 differently best NOT to confuse Mach3 with ANY other controller but go with what is defined in the manual.

Generaly speaking the G92 is a local offset and the G52 is a global offset.

Just a thought, (;-) TP

HIYA TOM, IF you loaded the correct plugin/screenset from the CANDCNC install program THEN you should have all the correct settings to make it work. The only thing that needs setup is the SLAVE axis for the long axis. And then it should be to select the DIRECTION of movement.

The XML that comes with the install is correct for MOST applications and covers all the assesories inputs such as limits, home,etc for the standard setup of a machine.  

When I get back to the shop I will make a copy of the setup we use.

HIYA RICH, Not the case with the CandCNC stuff it is high documented as TOM created a very integrated package that is NOT like a standard MAch3 installation SO in turn he documented it VERY WELL with LOTS of pictures and diagrams and words.

(;-) True industrial machines ARE built for accel AND speed. Ya can't have high speed and not high accel or else you get what the OP is describing.

You can't idle around at 100IPM cutting sheet goods and make money or even get good quality cuts with high power cutters.

One trick is to CHANGE your post to switch back and forth between exact stop and CV ONLY when it is cutting areas that are crutial to a sharp square inside corner.

Ya got to HAUL the mail so to speak, (;-) TP

With the sub approch it is ALL simple Gcode coding to call any or all the subs you want in any order you choose. YEs you could use a wizard to select the programs you want to run and assemble a stand alone Gcode program based on the SUB routine.

M98 FirstSUB.tap L1            Calls the program Firstsub.tap and runs it 1 time

M98 SecSUB.tap L3             Calls the program secSUB.tap and runs it 3 times

(;-) TP

HOW about a simple Gcode SUB routine. Call it as many times as needed OR as many different subs as needed. Runs in Gcode and very easy to do.

EASY , ASK TOM over at CandCNC to make SURE you have loaded the correct plugin and screenset.  There are several different applications on the install disk. With his systems they are highly integrated and you need to run the proper setup per hardware to get the BEST results and fewer suprises.

The good side is they are documented in his product manuals. Most just don't bother to read and study them.

MY earlier point was that he SHOULD be running a gold screenset with his hardware also the correct plugin to match the screenset and hardware used.

General Mach Discussion / Re: Amusing subroutine label bug
« on: January 28, 2012, 12:24:50 AM »
HIYA ROger, Testing your version here the 2nd sub runs first then it runs the first sub.

Also with your version it will not run without the M30 as well.

Interesting, (;-) TP

That sis a very early Cancnc screen he should have thenewer Gold screen with what he has IF he loaded the correct version.

OK first you have to realize that Home and zero can be 2 different things.

If you are just moving to a location and press zero you are just resetting the local Zero position. That has nothing to do with HOME wich is a machine reference position Machine Zero.

IF you do not have home switches then Mach set HOME to whatever is current WHEN you first fired up Mach3. It just happend to be at +1.00 when you did it. IF you can find a button called RefHome it will reset the machine Zero.

There IS a proceedure for setting Machine Zero( HOME) without a home switch.

I take it that this is a plasma rig ??? and you are using the CandCNC stuff????
