Inertial Dampers and flywheels are very effective for helping nullify resonance within a rotational mass. Here is my NEMA 42 stepper with a multi-part damper at work...

For sale on Ebay at http://www.ebay.com/itm/260989490032

Item includes all available documents (manuals, programming guides, etc.), drivers, Mach3 plugins, and firmware.

The G100 is a 6-axis motion controller. It uses USB or Ethernet communication with a host PC to execute motion control and I/O commands. The axis outputs use a Step/Direction interface to motor drives. Each axis has an associated quadrature encoder input. The G100 also has 22 general purpose inputs, 16 general purpose outputs, 4 analog to digital inputs and 4 digital to analog outputs. Each digital input and output has an LED indicator.

The G100 uses an FPGA to generate axis step pulse timing and an 8-bit microcomputer to calculate motion control flow. Communication with the G100 is via text string commands and replies. All axis can run independently or in coordination with other axis. Coordinated axis motion is vector based. The associated axis accelerate, run and decelerate simultaneously while maintaining exact speed ratios.

The G100 uses a unique method of motion control. The FPGA produces step pulse frequencies proportional to 16-bit word. This results 32,767 CW and 32,767 CCW evenly spaced step-pulse frequencies per range. The commanded frequency can only be changed at fixed rate of 1,024 times per second. The same crystal oscillator time base generates step pulse frequencies and the update rate. The axis position is a running sum of the issued velocities.

The 1,024 updates per second also apply to all inputs and outputs. Inputs, including analog are sampled at that rate and all outputs, including analog are updated at that rate.


8 step-pulse frequency ranges. 65,535 CW and CCW speeds per range. Maximum step-pulse frequency is 4.194304 MHz. Maximum step-pulse jitter is 125 ns. Step and direction outputs are 5V logic, +/-24 mA current drive per output. Step-pulse indicator LED is activity driven; it is lit when output is pulsing.
6 quadrature encoder inputs including index channel. Maximum encoder count rate is 1 MHz. Encoder inputs are filtered and have indicator LEDs on each input.
16 general-purpose outputs. The outputs are rated at 100mA, 24VDC maximum per output. The outputs are suitable for driving DC relay coils. Each output has an indicator LED which lights when an output is “on”.
22 general-purpose inputs. The inputs can be activated by SPST switches to ground, by open-collector sensors or by 5V logic levels. The inputs are filtered and protected to +/- 50VDC. Each input has an indicator LED that lights when an input is grounded.
4 Digital to analog outputs. Each output is a 0 to 5V (0 to 10V optional) op-amp output and 8-bit resolution.
4 Analog to digital inputs. Each input takes a 0 to 5V (0 to 10V optional) input voltage range. The resolution is 8-bit and the input impedance is 2.2K.
The G100 requires a 12VDC to 24VDC power supply rated at 1.5A. It supplies an internally regulated 5VDC to the terminal block outputs.
The G100 has both a USB and an Ethernet interface.
The G100 has a 2.5” by 7.375” mounting area footprint and is 1.5” high ( 63.5mm by 187mm by 38mm). The weight is 10 ounces (284 gm). The enclosure is black anodized aluminum. The G100 has 96 bare-wire type terminal block locations. The terminal blocks have a 3.5mm pitch.

Dan Mauch at Camtronics is the guy to contact, he may be able to provide you with a temporary license for the Flatbed software.

I've been hinting for such too, but without much luck.  Triangles Flatbed3D Scanner is still in development, said to release soon but it could be a year.  Here's the info...

at some point I may just invest in a laser distance such as the Riftek http://www.riftek.com/pages/lasereng.htm or Dimetix http://www.dimetix.com/index.html. This type of device interfaced/coordinated with X and Y of a CNC Router would give high resolution data for a point cloud and at high pass rates. Another positive is that there is no optical or perspective related distortion. A negative would be it is sort of a contact-less touch probe and won't capture in just one pass as a camera/laser-line would do.


Here's a detail picture of the hardware... this is the "live" or moving end of the bi-fold door.  The stationary end has the same design just without the linear bearing, you can see that and the gimmick at work in the video I've linked here...

Unfortunately, I did not video the machining of the door... but I did snap a pic at the end.  Also, I've included 2 screenshots from when I was doing the design.  Fun stuff that I will be doing more of for sure!!

This bi-fold door glides on a precision chromium beam (Thompson Linear Bearing) and pivots on ball bearings for one-touch, effortless action. Designed by Haik.


*****VIDEOS***** / 4th Axis Fun

A while back I made Pepper Mills.  Here's one such getting cut...

Also, there's some CAD/CAM info on this project at http://dwell.leveragesoftware.com/blog_post_view.aspx?BlogPostID=75279361e91549f7b57756e828a677df

The machine is a Thermwood C5 and the 4th Axis I put together myself from a 6" rotary table and a hefty nema 34 motor. All is run by Mach3 via a SmoothStepper. The wood is maple.  Enjoy!

No luck, even following your instructions.  The device is unrecognized in Windows... when devices show up this way they're posted to Device Manger's "Other devices" which in a way is isolation.  From Smarterm all I get is this error message and no available conrollers to ad...

It looks like it's toast.  Thanks for trying!

Just a sanity check on Smarterm; Connect using Smarterm via USB or RS-232?

On USB I only get USB chip recognition ("NET2888 USB Interface Controller") and not "Galil Motion..." like I would've expected.  I haven't tried to connect via RS-232 yet.

I just bought one those Ebay Galil DMC-2030's and am trying to get Windows (both XP and 7) and Mach3 to recognize it.  At present Windows Device Manager shows (see attached pic):
under "Universal Serial Bus Contollers"...
-- "Generic USB Hub"
under "Other Devices"...
-- ("!") "NET2888 USB Interface Controller"
I've installed the v7 drivers (I think) by running dmcdriverdll02.exe and dmcsmartterm02.exe and also Galil.m3p but the result in Mach3 is "Galil Card not connected!!"
I've also toggled the USB switch on the unit and have done the MRST jumper and rear panel switch, but still no luck.  Any help is much appreciated!
