General Mach Discussion / Re: help with auto tool zero macro
« on: March 12, 2008, 11:21:28 PM »
I am using the latest version of Mach

v2.63 or v3.something?  If 3.something, try it with v2.63.

So the problem appeared at random times in your system ?

Yeah.  I'd be jogging along and let go, and the jogging axis would just keep going.    It happened to other people at my machine too.  Like I said, I never figured it out and it hasnt happened in probably 6 months.  One thing I always suspected is that by pushing the shift key, then the arrow key to jog, and then letting go of the shift key (and then releasing the arrow key) might have done it.

When I load the screen in MACH3 and press a jog key the correct axes moves in the right
direction but keeps moving even when i release the key!

I used to have that problem all the time on the keyboard, I never figured it out, and it hasnt happened in months.  Somebody told me it was 'StickyKeys' but those [Windows] settings didnt fix it at that time either.

Works in progress / Re: Screen with soft keys?
« on: February 16, 2008, 09:03:08 AM »
Hi Ron,

Have you watched Jasons videos on how to make a Flash screen?  Many hours of info there on just how to use Flash and Mach together.   Once you know how Flash and Mach partner, its just basic Flash.  And as for Flash its self, there are about a quadzillion how-to sites about the internet.



it pained me to see you do all that math and motor tuning and what not.  so i threw up a thing on a screenset to do all that.  forgive me for any crudeness to it, it was a 10 minute task, and I used the screen that use most too.

anywho, if you load the screenset attached, you will see some dros on the program run screen:

Diameter: [put your desired dia here, you had "1.5"] (dro 1500)
Rot Step: [put your rotary steps here, you had "115200"] (dro 1501)
Y2A: [this is calulated to what you called "steps per inch of linear movment"] (dro 1502)
Calculate button (script on button for portability sake)

So enter your dia, the rotary steps, and press Calc.

this calcs the steps per inch of linear movement as shown in the Y2A dro.  now go to your motor tuning and see that by pressing the Calc, it also SET the motor tuning of the Y counts to that value.

So there you have it, no more calcumalation or motor tuning BS.

Ok, i got curious...

i took this: http://www.vbforums.com/archive/index.php/t-342619.html

and added a getoemdro

and got:
Code: [Select]
Dim sFileText As String
Dim iFileNo As Integer
iFileNo = FreeFile
'open the file for writing
Open "C:\Test.txt" For Output As #iFileNo
'please note, if this file already exists it will be overwritten!

xd00d=getoemdro (800)
yd00d=getoemdro (801)
zd00d=getoemdro (802)

'write some example text to the file
Print #iFileNo, "X= ", xd00d
Print #iFileNo, "Y= ", yd00d
Print #iFileNo, "Z= ", zd00d

'close the file (if you dont do this, you wont be able to open it again!)
Close #iFileNo

and then when you view that file as spec'd in the code, it has the dro info at the moment the code was ran (although if the axis was in motion, i dont think it would be accurate, that takes a dll).
