you can also look for EstlCam,
i am using this, it's realy easy.


hello picoworm,

don't want to interupt you in your own way of making a reference sequence,
but all this VB stuff will be to slow for what ever you try to do.

hope i can make me understand in my bad german english.

Regards Thomas

I have problem with wireing this up. There is no Enable joints (just DIR and STEP)unlike my stepper motor driver. I read manual but I didn't find explanation why is that. Could soneone tell me how to make it work.
yes, yust figure it out.

Hi Guys,

as long we dont know, what picoworm is trying to do,
it's only a look into the "cristal ball".
my "cristal ball" is out of order, because the lamp is
broken, and nobody is around to change the lamp.

Regards Thomas

the answer is displayed in your status lin on the botom of the screen.

the limit switch for home Y axis is allready triggered.

possibility 1: make it free by moving in manual
possibilty 2. config -> general config -> disable home sw. safety

You usually don't need to convert to a string to put something in a messagebox.

you are right with the example above.

but only in this case:
Test = 1234.5
MsgBox Test

not in this case:
Test = 1234.5
MsgBox "Test = " + CStr(Test)

An Arduino and grbl is not in the same league as Mach3 and the others I mentioned. Not even close.

Gerry you are a 100% right, but
striplar was only asking: "All I need is for it to execute G1 F# S# and M03, that's all I use"

that was the trigger for grbl and Arduino.

cstr converts numbers to string, because msgbox can only display string.
