if you Google for: plasma floating head
you will get a lot of Information, how a Floating head works.

can you please post your M6Start and M6End macro,
because there should be nothing in for spindle control.
spindle is controlled by M3/M4/M5.

My issue is that I don't know what pins the hotend motor is being controlled with on the DB25 cable. How do I configure this so that Mach3 can see it? Thanks


what do you mean with "what pins the hotend motor is being controlled with on the DB25 cable".

the Motor itselv (witch is not included in yout hotend link) need's to be connected as a axis to MX4660hm.

Hi,
the difference between the two is 711/28= 25.4

Just happens to be the conversion factor between mm and inches. What are your native units?

Craig

that was brilliant. 100% onto the point

825
maybe, who knows.

826
are you starting Mach3 as Admin ?

827
i would start with

-a fresh install of M3
-a new blanc Profile

and do the steup (manually) again, takes maybe half a hour.
there is no reason that it should not run on a 32Bit Win7

just a thought.

something like this might work in macropump

Code: [Select]
If IsMoving() Then
  If GetUserDro(1301) = 0 Then
If (GetDro(0) > 10) And (GetDro(0) < 15)  Then
ActivateSignal(OUTPUT2)
SetUserDro(1300,10)
SetUserDro(1301,1)
End If


If (GetDro(0) > 60) And (GetDro(0) < 65)  Then
ActivateSignal(OUTPUT2)
SetUserDro(1300,10)
SetUserDro(1301,1)
End If

If (GetDro(0) > 110) And (GetDro(0) < 115)  Then
ActivateSignal(OUTPUT2)
SetUserDro(1300,10)
SetUserDro(1301,1)
End If
  End if
End If

If GetUserDro(1300) >= 0 Then
SetUserDro(1300,GetUserDro(1300)-1)
If GetUserDro(1300) = 0 Then
DeactivateSignal(OUTPUT2)
SetUserDro(1301,0)
End If
End If

i would prefere to have seperate files, because interrupting a GCode , do something manualy and then restart at
the exact Point is also not easy.

more interesting is to find this "clear" "bordes" of the single segment's

i dont know, what are you doing on this machine, but what would be, if there
is something to do on this part, witch start's f.e. at 965 and Ends at 1150 ? ???

i think a lot questions will Pop up during this challege.

i can only give you a Hand on VB Scripting side.
