HIYA DAVE, any plans for a simple HI-RES, low light, poor eyes, cheap glasses version for use in the shops(;-)

Just an oldie

OK IF I follow you correctly ???   WHere the M25 is a macro that does the punch?  YEP that is all ran from Gcode and you can single step it OR run in auto mode

G1 X1.000 Y1.000 F50
M25 
X2.000 Y2.000
M25
X3.000 Y3.000
M25

An example of your Gcode would be helpfull.

IAN I just tried your version(;-) "Here" At the end of the VB file it will autostart the Gcode program that is loaded.

HIYA GUYS both version work here just fine??????????? I like the first version that still shows the toolpath best , not that it really matters.

Ian , I have tried the While Isloading ()  Funny thing here IS I have 3 computers I have tested it on AND it took a different approach to make it work on each computer????? Mostly it was a time dwell issue try to keep VB in sync with itself.

Another problem was Mach does NOT like to run Gcode inside VB  WHEN it has a Gcode file loaded. It will at times START the Gcode file running WHEN the vb code ends.  THAT WAS EXCITING on the machine testing. That is what the Feedhold/Stop code was all about at the end of the file ,IT kept the machine from autostarting the program file. THAT was also why I tested in G1 instead of G0 as the plasma can haul at better than 300IPM if needed.

I think Mach is WAY TOO spooky to be doing anymore cool things for the masses, you never know when something will go bad.

I have many many cool Mcodes and function routines that we use here BUT I think they will stay in the file cabinet untill mach gets stable.

(;-) AUTOSTART in the worst way LOLOLOLOLOL

Not a good idea to have the macropump do motion control. It is dangerous. The macropump runs continuosly and can start machine movement ANY time the conditions are met. Wether you wanted it to or not AND there is no presice way to override/pause the macropump.

Every CNC punchpress I have seen controlled the punch through Gcode

(;-) The problem I see IS that mach has no real controll over the VB threading, it can hop and skip over code randomly at times when the cpu may be busy.

I thought that because the Gcode window was active that Mach had a problem with running a VB/Gcode while the Gcode window was open. That helped but there is still a time/threading problem somewhere.

BUT none of that explains the running from an open VB window unless THAT forces VB to behave??????

Can you load a program then Open the Gcode Var window and use Vars 100,101,110,111 and see when you run the program that the Vars are actually loading. If not we need to add more time for them to update.

What  speed computer are you running?

Andrew have you tried using SENDKEYS to allow VB to push the buttons on the screen?
