Beware there ARE problems with Tangent control. You would be better to let  CAM do the tangent code work.

Yes it is that simple. You also need to name the button.

Mach4 General Discussion / Re: 3+2 or 5 axis support
« on: September 21, 2015, 12:29:23 AM »
Mach3 will not understand what the Mcodes are for for on YOUR machine BUT you may be able to recreate them In Mach3 if you know what they do.

Mach 3 cannot rotate the Planes in anything but XY so the CAM will have to do that part and it MAY be doing it. The Tool height comp  is done a bit different as well but should work ok.  

Mach3 cannot do arcs in any plane other than XYZ. BUT teh code is NOT using abc with arcs it is moving in xyz the CAM post needs to be set to output arcs.

It shouldbe do able BUT will require a lot of testing to be sure.

Mach3/4 should NOT have any problem to do it the exact same way you old controller did it . It is a very simple process that you require. 3+2 axis control. That way you can use all the old code. BUT that also depends on what the OLD Gcode looked like. Assuming that it ran on Gcode that is.

Remember that Mach3/4 does NOT program anything it only follows the Gcode. YOUR CAM is what writes the Gcode for Mach3/4 to follow. Worst case senario is that you may need to modify your CAM post to output Gcode that Mach3/4 understands.

Post an example of the Program file it uses.

Modbus / Re: Arduino ModBus and Mach3 for tool turret changer
« on: September 18, 2015, 06:28:46 PM »
MOdbus is built into the scripting language in Mach3    you can talk directly to the modbus device and Mach3 will listen for a responce from a device.

You can do it over serial or TCP if I remember correctly.   IT owould be BEST if you created all teh TC motion scripting in teh device and then Mach3 can signal to move then the device can signal back when it is done with teh move/toolchange .

Well IF you are a brave soul you could write a Plugin to do what you want.

Did you activate the TOOL #  It only sees the  Current Tool (active one)  not the selected tool .

General Mach Discussion / Re: Toolpath Display

OK this could work.  Program the fixture vectors as a SUB but make all teh Z height at Z home position. Use a block delete on the SUB call that way you only have 1 block delete to do .  Place the SUB call as the last line before the M30 This way EVEN if you forgot to turn ON block delete there is no harm done as the Fixture vectors would run at Z home height. AND you could simply stop the program at that point.  No harm no foul.

Example Gcode :

G0 X0 Y0
G0 X5 Y5
(Cut a Circle)
G91
G0 X3
G1 Z-1 F30
G02 X0 Y0 I-3 J0
G0 X-3
G90
( End of Circle Cut)
/ M98 P1 L1
M30

o1
G28 Z0
G0 X0 Y0
G0 X10
Y10
X0
Y0

The only way I know of that it can be done is to code teh Vectors into the Gcode files with a block delete charector. That way they can be turn OFF and it will not run them .

BBBBUUUTTTT if you forget to turn the block delete ON you will have a MESS/CRASH on your hands. 

You can also do the fixture vectors as a SUB and call it with a parameter  (m98 P#100)  then set the  parameter if you want to see it. BUT the same warning applies.
