General Mach Discussion / Re: Macro pauses my program

you can use macropump macro to do this.

GetDro(5) is the right value for B-axis.
have you enabled macropump macro in General cofig?

if you want to run W10 you have to look for a external Motion Controller, i simple BOB for PP will not work.

simple answer: no

every macro call will Interrupt continious movement. so only Chance is to to call the teh macro
when your bit it not cutting material.

-in your Special case (MaxNC controler board) the PIC is reading and handling the encorder, and only the PIC,
Mach3 knows nothing about this Encoder.

-in a good tuned stepper System it is normaly not necessary to use encoder's

-anyhow there there are stepper Motor drivers on the market witch can handle Encoders. then they are
closed Loop. Leadshine is only one example:

but also here, only the stepper drives reads/handles the Encoder, not Mach3

if you put the code in a custom macro like M100, it Needs to be called in G-Code every time you want to Change
the analog Output, and Motion will stop on every macro call.

that is why i was talking about macropump macro, this is a macro witch is running in Background, and it will
read the B-Axis Position every 10ms and write the analog Output, and because it is running in Background,
it will not pause Motion.

i think the latest Version can be found here:


but not 100% sure.

your controlbox has a cslab csmio/IP-M Controller. it is controlled via Ethernet

here: https://en.cs-lab.eu/technical-support/download/manuals-firmware-plugin/csmio-series-manuals-and-firmware-plugin/csmioip-m-user-manuals-download/

is a Manual witch Shows, how to connect the Controller to your Laptop. Win10 64bit should be ok.

you can try this:


maybe it help's

in my posted link (https://en.cs-lab.eu/digital-and-analog-ios-configuration-its-easy/)
you can see analog Output Need's a value 0-4095 for 0-10V

so 0-100 (b-axis Position DRO(5)) multiplied by 4.095 will bring the result.

you can put the posted code into macropump.m1s (make sure macropump is enabled in
General config) and it should work.
