General Mach Discussion / About "slow jog" button.
« on: April 03, 2008, 03:36:54 AM »
Hello everyone!
I need some help related to the slow jog button.
With OEM button 111 and 112, i can change the percentage (%) of the jog speed by steps of 5% up or down.
The guestion is how can i change this step to 10%.
And how can i make a button that will set -lets say- 20%. Then by pressing onother button, to go back to 100%.
Thank you in advance!

As you know, when cutting with plasma, in proportion with the direction of cut, the kerf side changes. So, when cutting CW the kerf should be outside and when cutting CCW the kerf should be inside.
Now my question is:
Can mach3 calculate the kerf automatically by a given value in a DRO?
If no, can i use different tools from the "tool table" to do it? (how does this table work?)
Any ideas would be helpfull...

General Mach Discussion / Help in settings...

I need some help in the seetings of mach3.
While the motors are moving, i can hear a noise like "gap-gap..." given in stable time.
I suppose that the problem is the PC, because i have used another PC and i didn't have these problems.
I have changed the configurations to this PC as www.machsupport.com gives (msconfig, etc...).
Has the kernel speed to do with that? What should i look for?
Any advice would be helpfull.

General Mach Discussion / Feedrate DRO...
« on: August 28, 2007, 06:12:52 AM »
At the start of mach3, the feedrate DRO goes to a value (06). Even if i change it, the next time that the program starts goes again to 6. What can i do to keep the last value given?

General Mach Discussion / About the "auto help".
« on: August 24, 2007, 05:15:20 AM »
Hi everyone!
When right clicking on the DROs there is an auto help appearing (the "magician"), describing the function of the DRO.
How to disable this auto help? Because sometimes it appears when i don't want and interruppts the program.
Thanks in advance!

So i write at the vb script:
code ("Stop File")

code("bla bla")

But it doesn't work.

Any ideas?

General Mach Discussion / Pause LED does not work...
« on: May 24, 2007, 03:18:33 AM »
I have made a button system function: pause
and a LED system function: pause
When the program is running i press the pause button. The program stops. The LED does not light!
I have tried also oem code for the led 805. It does the same.
Please show me what code to use...

And where i can find a FULL list or manual for the mach3? Or it is the same with mach2 manual?

General Mach Discussion / User macros that produce problems...
« on: May 23, 2007, 07:54:22 AM »
I have a program that produces G code from drawings ("Promotion Nest").
The programs sets at the begining of the program M28 and at the end M29.
So, i created two new macros (in the macros folder) M28 and M29.M1S .
M28 contains only that: ActivateSignal(output1)
and M29 contains: DeActivateSignal(output1)
Now when i open a file (any file), the toolpath screen does not show the drawing, and sometimes if i try to move by right clicking, goes back to the first screen.
If i delete these two files, the screen shows the drawings as well.
Do you have any idea of what is going on?
