you can see in diagnosic page the M1++ and M1-- led's changing?
if you only have one limitswitch you have to set Limit++ and Limit-- to the same port/pin.

in Settings page "Override Limits" is off?

Gcode as used by mach3 or Mach4Hobby does not include conditional statements. with Cypress Enable.

i am not familar with Mach4 (LUA Scripting),

but i am pretty sure that the is (Mach4Hobby), a posibility to create a macro call M123 or what ever,
witch is waiting for a stupit Input to get "High".

no idea how you switched from Mach3Mill to Mach3Plasma Profile.
here a small description "how" i would "Switch".

i do not know your profilename, ok let's say it is "MyMach3Mill".

then there should be in "C:\Mach3" (ok whereever you installed Mach3 basicly),
a file like MyMach3Mill.xml.

now make a copy of this file (in the same Folder), and rename it to:

ok now the "Mill" Profile is copied to a "Plasma" Profile.

you have probably a shotcut on your Desktop to run the "MyMach3Mill" "Version" of Mach3 ??!

copy this as well,
open properties

there should be something like this to find:

C:\Mach3\Mach3.exe /p MyMach3Mill

Change this to C:\Mach3\Mach3.exe /p MyMach3Plasma

now start this shortcut, (everything should be exact the same like in Mill Profile),

now you can load the Plasma Screenset (View -> Load Screens -> Plasma.set).

and you should a 1 by 1 copy of your Mill Profile.


General Mach Discussion / macro on startup/screenset load
« on: January 24, 2019, 05:46:02 AM »
i am sure i have read that there is a possibilty of a macrocall on statup or screesetload.
macro has to have a specific Name, and to be at a specific place.

not the Thing with the Initialisation string in General config.

i have searched now for two hours, but cant find it anymore.

maybe someone can remember, seem's i am getting to old. :o

General Mach Discussion / Re: Control Mach3 via Labview
« on: January 23, 2019, 05:12:48 AM »

my knowledge of this Kind for remote control is too less, to be a help.
depending on the "Age" of mach3 i would say it will not work on an
PC witch has an actual Win Version on, but i do not know for sure.

maybe someone else, has more Experience about this.
