General Mach Discussion / Commands on a line.
« on: October 25, 2008, 07:14:00 AM »
My post processor gives some commands in a row.
Mach3 seems not to understand commands in one row, (like that: M1001 M1002 M1003) These are macros.
Is that right?
Is there any way to make it understand? (Maybe by putting between the macros a factor or so...)

Which do you think is the most suitable version of Vista to use with Mach3?
For example is the HOME BASIC EDITION 32BIT DSP suitable for the application?
I just cant decide which to buy....

General Mach Discussion / "Hold" command for arc controller unit.
« on: September 02, 2008, 03:35:32 AM »
Is it possible to have a "hold" output for arc controller unit?
When using arc controller, the change of speed can affect the torch height.
What i want is: at the corners (where speed is lower and the torch will touch the plate),
the mach3 will give an output to the arc controller unit to hold the torch.
Can that be done with brains?
Any ideas on how to do that?
Kind regards,

What is better to use for PC for Mach3? Multiprocessor computer or single?
(I am asking because i followed the recomended steps about performance -about changing from ACPI PC to Standard PC - and i realised that the processing speed was lower. My PC is dual core.)

General Mach Discussion / FeedOverRide DRO over 100%...
« on: August 12, 2008, 02:30:10 AM »
Hello there!
When changing the FeedOverRide DRO, does that effect also the G0 speed?
It seems to me that when setting this DRO to over than 100%,
the G0 speed also is bigger (and this is problem).
If so, how can i raise the program speed while running, without affecting the G0 speed?

General Mach Discussion / How to change Reverse speed?
« on: June 13, 2008, 08:21:39 AM »
How can i change the reverse speed?
I tried changing the FeedRate OEMDRO(818) to a very low value,
but everytime i hit the reverse button OEMButton(279), goes back very fast.
Any ideas?

General Mach Discussion / Buttons that write numbers in DROs.

Is there any way to create some buttons that will insert numbers to DROs?
Like a numeric pad i mean.

VB and the development of wizards / About a delay routine with G4
« on: April 11, 2008, 05:39:41 AM »
I have made the following routine:

wait = GetUserDRO (1037) * 770
code ("G4 P" & wait)

But when i set in the 1037 DRO value bigger than 27, the system enters the routine and never stops.
If the value is lower than 27 works fine and by pressing the DoButton(0) escapes the routine.
With 28 even the DoButton(0) does not stop the routine.

I also did the following:

Dim wait As String
The reaction is the same.

Any ideas?

General Mach Discussion / Move in X and Y axis with a button.
« on: April 08, 2008, 04:10:30 AM »
Good morning!
Please help me on the following:
By pressing a button, i want to move in X and Y axis a standard distance and then zero both axis.
All i want to do is: to place a laser pointer above the machine's head, pointing at the material and showing where the 0,0 point should be.
Then i will move the laser point to the wanted 0,0 point and i will press this button described above.
So, the machine will move to the original head's 0,0 (where the tool is positioned) and will zero the x and y axis.
Any advice would be helpfull.
