General Mach Discussion / Re: Xbox shillings, big tex screen, z touch M code
« on: September 05, 2015, 06:21:09 AM »
Aaah ok well that makes sense, can i just put the script into notepad and save it as M##.m1s? And just put it in the macros folder and have the button call it or does it need to be embed into mach somehow?

General Mach Discussion / Xbox shillings, big tex screen, z touch M code
« on: September 05, 2015, 04:16:08 AM »
Hi guus
So i am using the big tex screenset, I am also using the xbox controller shillings plugin and I can assign the xbox controller button a macro, I want to assign the z touch off macro to one of the buttons,  but the xbox shillings plugin asks for an M# but when i go to edit button to have a look at what .m1s it is assign to its called hiddenscript.m1s, Am I missing something, how do I find the m code for this z touch of macro?

Thanks
Chris

I was thinking, is there a waynto make it populate xyz etc based on how many axis you have setup? So for example if you have a 3 axis cnc router setup then it would just show xyz but if you checked a &b in your motor setup then the axis optimizer would then also populate a &b etc rather than showing all 6 axis if you dont have them all.

That all looks really good, I wouldnt ask you to have another one for my website as it probably to hard go keep 2 things updated when fresh updates roll around and issues pop up.

One query i do have is, what about people with 5-6 axis machines? Would you think its worth while adding b & c?

Keep up the good work.

That looks pretty sweet, I cant fault it. Very good work.

i am not sure of the dark grey back ground thou as it doesnt seem to fit the whole mach4 white theme :) but thats just personal preference.

I cant see my website link anywhere haha

Thanks everyone for there positive feedback, its nice to hear and also be able to help.

Chaoticone, I agree about the button to, people just generally want to automate the process and not have a full understanding so therefore it makes it harder to diagnose future issues,

With regards to the acceleration and velocitiy, do you have a guideline that you follow? For example should acceleration be 50% of of the velocity? etc etc or a certain % of the velocity as a guideline. I have generally just played it by ear and gone for something thats not taking off like lightning then jerking to a halt.

Thanks
Chris

Hi Guys
I am a long time Mach3 User but since upgrading to mach4 I noticed a little feature missing that I found quite handy and that was the Axis Calibration, Anyway I have done up My own axis calibration Found in the link below, This will help those who want to fine tune the steps on there machines.

For those who have already got there machine moving and just want to fine tune you can go straight to "Steps Optimizer" without having to fill in the rest of the information, There is a video there that explains how it works

Hope this help
