This would be an example of a macro(m100) that could drive your function.

' M100 Driller macro
Lcnt = 0                  ' Set Loop Counter to Zero
   ActivateSignal(Output10)                          ' Create a Momentary signal of 1 sec to start driller function
   Sleep(1000)
   DeactivateSignal(Output10)

While Not Isactive(Input10)  OR  Lcnt <10000   ' Wait for the Driller to signal DONE or time out

                  IF Lcnt > 10000 then      ' IF timeout occurs then cancel Program
   Message" Driller did not respond"
   DoButton(3)
   End
   End if

   Lcnt = (Lcnt +1)                                         'Increase count by 1 each loop
Wend

While Ismoving()
Wend

End

Yes I believe that to be true But it is a good idea and I believe an artsoft suggestion to have it trnasferred into your name to calrify ownership of the license. IF the Oem shipped the same license file to everyone that would violate teh license agreement ???

The license file here on the plasma came from teh OEM as a serial number and it can be traced back to artsoft through that serial number that was assigned to that license when THEY bought it from Artsoft.

Just a thought, (;-)TP

Also you may want to contact Artsoft and have them transfer that license into your company name.  Someone may mistake that fact that it is not in your name to mean it could be a pirated license. Not saying it is but there are many thousands of pirated license out there now.  Normally a company selling OEM licenses use a serial Number to identify it as an individual license and are not just using 1 specif lincense to run 100 machines that they sell. There are many OEM out it the world that have done just that. I for one will not help anyone that I think has one as it would not be fair to the ones that bought a legit license.

Each of those macros simply turns on and off a specific Output signal. What they do not have is a safety excape to be able to break out of the loop they create.  IF the switch does not trip then you are forever stuck in that loop with no easy way out.

You will only need one Macro to drive teh process but it is a complex macro with safeties included. You would make the motion moves in Gcode to get into position then make a macro(say M100) That macro would then control the activate and WAIT until teh driller signals it has finished . But at the same time there has to be an excape route in the code to allow you to break out of an endless loop in teh event that Mach3 does NOT see teh signal. Most times that would be a simple timer. You would time teh process then add a fudge factor to that. THEN IF the macro failed to see teh inout signal it would auto stop the process and cancel the program and post a message teeling you what happend "Hey dude I am busted please fix me" It can even call you on your cell phone and leave you a text message.

It is doable from Mach3 You use Gcode to do the motion and a macro to control the stop start . A macro(Mcode) in the Gcode would control the Driller process.

The macro would simply turn on outputs and watch for inputs to signal things were done then the Gcode side starts motion again and repeat.

IF there is any way I can help just let me know. I can walk you through the Macro code side and the Gcode side is very easy to do

OK  few more questions. Will this be a continous feed type of thing or do you load a part complete the process then unload and  Load another part to be processed?

OK Can you define Momentary ? Would that be a 1 sec signal or longer and what defines how long it needs to be OR can it simply wait on the driller to reach teh bottom of stroke ??

THIS would be very simple IF you made the driller into the Z axis and drove it all from Gcode. As is you will need both Gcode and Macros to do what is needed.

Try it by moving up on teh table in Y about about 2-3" from where you started originally.  It could be a stiction problem on tha table at that point OR it could be a controller problem OR you are right on the verge of loosing steps on teh Y axis config setup (Vel,acel) Try reducing teh Vel and Accel settings by 50% and rerun the Gcode.

Have you tried it with different Drill cycles ? G81 , G83, G73 ?   I would all 3 to see IF it made a difference.  Also I would try a manually programed cycle to help rule out some things.
