General Mach Discussion / Re: Work offsets
« on: September 08, 2011, 12:10:17 PM »
OK I see you are working with Comp in SUBS.

First add the G54 to the startup safety line this sets the display position correctly in reference to the rest of the program.

After add it here the Program looks and runs ok. NOW be aware that Mach3 will draw the profiles as offsets BUT when it runs it doews NOT move to the profiles displayed position on the screen . IT WILL cut it correctly just not display the moves corretly.

You cannot switch offsets WHILE in COMP.   Does it work ok IF you turn off comp then switch then reapply comp?

General Mach Discussion / Mach3 Screens and configuration windows Manual
« on: September 06, 2011, 08:28:18 PM »
I don't know how usefull it will be BUT here is a manual of ALL the Mach3 screens and config windows. Should make a handy reference book
For those long distance trouble shooting sessions.

Might be NICE to have a MACH3 LIBRARY section to hold all the docs in one spot.

Just a thought, (;-)

I was hoping top get a MACH3 LIBRARY started BUT not many seemed interested in the project.

An you did notice that I did NOT show him the secret handshake or mention the secret decoder ring????

(;-) THat is NOT a normal function of MACH3. It is normally controlled by the VFD that controls the spindle. You may want to try lowering the Set speed in the Gcode to 10,500 (S10500) just before where you want it to stop quick. Fool the controller.

Just a thought, (;-) TP

OK BUT this is a secret source only known by a few people(;-) Don't tell anyone I showed you where it is hidden. At theTale end of the book is a led,dro,button reference

VB and the development of wizards / Re: Using G-code files in Button Scripts
« on: September 05, 2011, 07:14:13 PM »
HIYA J, There are many ways to do what I think you want. It depends on exacly what you need. MACH3 is VERY powerful in some respects.Here is an example of a simple 4 button function Gcode program that for the most part takes VB out of the equation for motion control yet allows you to use the VB functions to selct moduals to run in any order you choose.

Sample Gcode Program with all moduals included in the Base code. Note that each modual has a SUBProgram place marker  (o1,o2,o3,o4)



G90 G54 G80 (etc,etc)
G0X0Y0Z0
/M2

o1
G1 X1 Y0 F50
X1y1
X0y1
X0y0
/M2

o2
G1 X5 Y0 F50
X5y5
X0y5
X0y0
/M2

o3
G1 X10 Y0 F50
X10y10
X0y10
X0y0
/M2

o4
M30


VB Button scripts for buttons, one for each screen button

Code"m98 P1 L1"
DoButton(0)

Code"m98 P2 L1"
DoButton(0)

Code"m98 P3 L1"
DoButton(0)

Code"m98 P4 L1"
DoButton(0)


Load the master Program. IF you want Mach3 to check the code then press the block delete button and mach will preveiw all moduals and display what it can on the screen. To run turn OFF the block delete button.

Next select what modual you want to run and press the correct button.  It will MOVE to that modual and run the code . At the M2 line it will stop.

Next select the next modual you want to run and press the button . It will move to that modual and run the code. At the M2 line it will stop.

To end press the button for selection 4 and it will run the M30 ,end the program  and rewind back to the top.

IF you want to run the program end to end and in that order then turn ON the block delete and Mach will run it start to finish.

There are Many OTHER ways to do this as well. You could have a SINGLE intelligent button that ASKS you what modual you want to run next AND even be able to input #variable values into play.

Hope that helps, (;-) TP

Thanks Ian, That worked perfectly.  Now IF I can get Mach to behave during a tool change routine (T1M6)  I am good to go.
