Hello,
by comparing your settins to the Manual,
i noticed, that the configuration for ENABLE1 and OUTPUT1
are twisted.

ENABLE1 should be pin14
OUTPUT1 should be pin 17

you have it the other way round,
would explain a couple of things.

General Mach Discussion / Re: Probing - what would i need?
« on: April 03, 2018, 01:48:54 AM »
Hi Dave,

let's say  you have a isolated probe permanent in a holder.
you meassure the lenght of this probe with your height setter for example as tool 200.

if you want to do a probe of your z-surface you do a normal toolchange to tool 200.
then you do a automatic z-Zero (in G54) with the probe, then all other tool height
are correct to this new z-Zero (workpiece).

Thats no other procedure like you do it with your Haimer probe, or ?

Thomas

btw CSMIO uses M31 for probing, but G31 works as well.

Yes a custom screen would be good.
and necessary

I'm trying to figure out how it all plays - currently I have the off-machine setter that reads the heights of all tools including the Haimer probe and then sends that data to the tool table (one at a time)
the probe will be a tool as well

Now, if I use a probe in the spindle - this would set Z,X,Y when it contacts the work in whatever direction?
exactly

So, how are tool lengths set - do i also need a touch-plate as well??
if you use the probe as a tool of tooltable (lenght), it will be the same like your Haimer probe
for Metall surfaces you do not Need a touchplate, on your CSMIO you have seperate connectors
of + and - for each Input, so connect the + direct to 24V supply + and the - to the isolated
probe, this makes necessary that the - of the 24V Power supply is grounded.
now everytime your probe touches the material the Input will come up.

i mean a outside hex screw with Long nut.
this would the screw allow to go up when you
insert new tool and you don't have to lift the wrench.

what would be to use a hex bolt insteed of torx,
in combination with a long nut it would allow the
screw to go into the nut without any pressure on
the screw.

just thinking.

Hello Frank,

on a first look to your XML everthing seams to be ok.
you have configurated b-axis as follows:

dir port 1 pin 9
step port 1 pin 8
step's per = 8000
velocity = 79,98
accel =20

Looks like it should move.

can you please post a link or file with the discription of the smoothsteper you are using.

pin9/8 are often used for dublicate funtionality (relays)
