General Mach Discussion / Re: need help w/ subroutine
« on: August 17, 2010, 08:04:22 PM »
There are several ways to do it.    One is too call the sub from inside the Gcode program . The other way is to call it from  the macro directory


G98 P1 L1              Calls the sub from inside the program.



o1                     This would be the sub code included at the end of the program
M8 M9
G4 P0.25
M99
%


M98 (Name of sub.tap)   would call the sub from the macro directory


'Name of sub.tap               This would be the sub program stored in the macro directory under the name of "Name of Sub.tap"
M8 M9
G4 P0.25
M99
%

Hope that helps,   (;-)

WEll if the brains are fast then when the Zaxis gets to the end point of the Zmove the bed will unclamp then reclamp as it starts the next up move. The TOGO should report the distance to the end of each linear move. So when it gets to the bottum of the stroke it should reset for the move up.

It should be as simple as if Z axis is moving then clamp.    IF  Zfeedrate > 0 then activate output#1        SO then IF Zis moving clamp but then you need to deal with the bottom of stroke when vel = 0 and it restarts the upstroke.  YOu could then add a routine that prevents the unclamping unless Zpos > 0.000 so it can only unclamp if the stroke is above 0.000


During the drill cycle there are no z interpolated moves with x/y. BUT here the brain does not release controll and unclamp when Z actuall stop at the top of the stroke. IT SHOULD but does not.

This computer and brains have never really gotten along(vista) SO it it hard to tell what is real or not.

SO only real world testing is going to tell the story. Give it a whirl

You need to rename your Macro AS say M300 and place it in the macro directory. Then the string would read "G80 M300"

6465
Reference the macro as a Mcode in the initializaton section in Gen Config.

THis is based on doing a SET NEW LINE approach If you need to use "RUN FROM HERE" let me know.   Hood I am glad top help out just did not want to butt in if you were wanting to practice your VB(;-)

There are 2 buttons 1 to stop the program and record all the paramaters needed to restart then MOVE off to a safe location.

1 button to restart the process move back to position and restart.

Give it a try and let me know if we need to modify it for your use

Hood Let me know if you need help with the code. We do something close with plasma. It is posted in the Mach tool box.

It will also depend on IF he needs to "Run from here" or "set next line" to restart . With plasma being a 2d function we can just use "set next line". With a sewing function I really don't know what is needed(;-) I would need to see an example of his Gcode file.

ALSO there is a set of function buttons on the main mach screen called Remember  and Return. If you stop the program with a feedhold/stop you would push the remember button then move off and do whatever. When you are ready to return punch return. A popup window will allow you to autoreturn to the spot you left. Then do you favorite restart function(run from here, set next line)

Just a thought,(;-)

HUM, Galil motion card. You may want to ask SteveMurphy about this one. Sometimes the motion card controls things differently than direct control from a PP.

So far The brains don't have the resources available to do this. I can get close but not close enought that "I" would use it. The problem comes when the Z cross the 0.000 and positional values reverse sign. There is no way I can find to address the problem. I can make the Bedlock active when it crosses the 0.000 and stay on until it comes back across. But you need it to lock as soon as it moves going down and release after it stops going up

That is because your dos and fanuc controllers are running in real time(;-)

OK I have to ask (;-) Why do you stop the machine to go on break? 

So far testing brains I have not found a dependable way to use the bedlock feature inside of the G81 cycle . I have gotten close BUT the Computer I am testing with DOES NOT like brains and runns them very slow ,about as slow as the macropump. But testing continues(;-)

Has anyone ever found a way to sense IF the Z axis is moving DOWN. We are looking for a brain function to sense if the Z is moving in the down direction only. not sitting still or moving up.

(;-)
