1. die Datei XA_jog.brn in das Verzeichniss C:\Mach3\Brains kopieren.
2. Operator -> Brain control
3. in dem Fenster den Brain XA_Jog markieren
4. jetzt den Haken bei Enabled setzen
5. am besten Reload All Brains
6. mit OK das Fenster schliessen
7. Config -> Port's&Pin's -> Input signals bei OEM Trig#1  Enabled , Emulated und den entsprechenden Hotkey setzen
8. in Config -> System Hotkeys sicherstellen, das bei Trigger #1 ein -1 drinsteht

dann sollte das klappen.

hello  Gerry,

thank you for the reply.

i am clear about the G43H.

i only ask about the G43T because i found this in a example for ATC and have
no idea what is does, or should do.

Thank you for your reply.  Im not sure how to do all of this?

About number 2.  say maybe you have a square but its not 100% square can you maybe plot the 4 corners and insert your design into that


as sayed for 1. and 3. it will be easy to Switch an Output/relay on your breakout board (type??),
but how you can inplemet this on your quilting machine ??

after hours of fiddeling and testing, i found the Problem.

my TC macro (M6Start) was based on an example from CSMIO.

at the end of the macro was the following code to anunce the new tool to the System:

Code: [Select]
  SetCurrentTool( newtool )
  Code("G43T" & newtool)
  Code("G43H" & newtool)

i never thought about it >:D

but the G43T.. caused the Problem.

so i started to get informations what G43T.. exactly does (or should do),
without any success. :'(

so it is running now without this G43T..,and without knowing what is should do.
i can live with this.

1.  A command or button to have a needle up/down function

that can be done via a button script or a macro call like M8(cooling on) would be an exaple to Switch an Output

2.  A screen set where you can map your work area and fit your design into that area irrespective of the shape

here i am not realy sure what you exactly mean (may depend on my bad bavarian english)

3.  A command or button to do like a lock stitch before your start sewing so that it will lock in the thread

same as 1. maybe Mist On function can be used for that

4.  Can you sync the sewing machine motor (AC) that the motor goes slower and faster as the X&Y moves(or does someone maybe
     know how to  make a easy stitch regulator where you can indicate how many stitches you wont per inc.

dont know your breakout board, maybe o analog Output (witch is a mirror of the actual feedrate) can do this

so we Need some more informations about your Hardware.

Hi i have a simple Programm:

running on Mach3
tested in R3.043.022
and in R3.043.066

Code: [Select]
N1 ( Lochreihe mit: 2 Loecher)
N2 ( Zentrierbohren mit Werkzeug: 99 )
N3 ( Bohren mit Werkzeug: 114 )
N4 G00 G49 G40 G21 G17 G80 G50 G90
N5 ( Zenrierbohren ----------)
N6 M06 T99
N7 G90 G00 X5 Y10
N8 G00 Z5
N9 S3800
N10 M03
N11 M08
N12 G73 X5 Y10 Z-3 Q1 R5 F300
N13 G91 X7.0711 Y7.0711 L1
N14 G80
N15 G90
N16 G00 Z5
N17 M09
N18 M05
N19 ( Bohren ----------)
N20 M06 T114
N21 G90 G00 X5 Y10
N22 G00 Z5
N23 S1100
N24 M03

N28 G80
N29 G90
N30 G00 Z5
N31 M09
N32 M05
N33 M06 T0
N34 M30

if i run the line:

N7 G90 G00 X5 Y10

i get a random z-axis movement

at line:

N21 G90 G00 X5 Y10

witch is exactly the same i have no z-axis movement

if i Switch the lines:

N7 G90 G00 X5 Y10
N8 G00 Z5


N7 G90 G00 Z5
N8 G00 X5 Y10

everthing works like expected.

i have no real idea who or what initiates this z-axis monent.
