General Mach Discussion / Mach4 vs...
« on: August 12, 2016, 02:38:08 PM »
Does anyone know the cost for the Mach4 OEM version (non hobby)? I've tried emailing sales but can't get a response. On another topic, for those who have moved on from Mach3 to something else, what did you migrate to?

Not saving the parameter change may turn out to be a good thing ;-)
The operator is expected to select an acceleration mode before running the job: Slow, Normal, or Turbo mode (basically, 0.05G, 0.1G, or 0.15G)
Any examples on doing the XML file update from script? That's a new one for me.

Thanks for the reply.
You are right about testing - that will have to wait until I'm at the customer site next week.
I've run the macros on my local PC and they immediately update the Acceleration settings found in the Config / Motor Tuning tab.
If these SetParam based Acceleration changes operate the same as the changes made through the Config / Motor Tuning tab then I'm somewhat hopeful it should work.

Re-reading your comments.
If you are saying that using the SetParam command "Axis"RefPer to change homing speeds results in an immediate change in Mach's operation, then I'm guessing I'm safe in assuming my answer should be "yes" - changes made with the SetParam Accleration command should update immediately to Mach's config settings and be used from that point forward.

Thanks for the fast reply.
To clarify, the changes would be made prior to running a job or while a job is in Pause mode.

This is for Mach3.

When Config settings are changed with the SetParam commands, are the changes updated dynamically or will the operator have to restart Mach3?
This is being done through input buttons on the Run screen.

Specifically, I have two customers who want to change the way Mach3 runs while the machine is in use.
Customer one wants to change the StepsPerAxis settings to adjust for changes in the thickness of a long rubber conveyor belt being fed through the system.
Customer two wants to change the Acceleration settings to dynamically adjust for the way the machine behaves while cutting on a waterjet system.
