General Mach Discussion / m10 m11 commands
« on: April 24, 2018, 08:04:12 AM »
Can anyone tell me, because I'm new to mach3, these commands don't work for me.
I have output 2 enabled.

I type into the run box on the diagnostics screen M10P2 and M11P2 nothing happens. I expect 1 of the output leds to illuminate.

Is there some other setting I need to alter?

General Mach Discussion / Macro or brain???? Help needed

I have built a plasma table, and I'm trying to add some additional functions.

I have installed a visible laser operated by a spare output.

I wish to write a script or brain ( not sure which is best) that will change M03 output from output 1 to output 6 when an on screen button is toggled.

I have never written any scripts for my cnc but I have programmed in VB.

Thanks I think it may be a corrupt file.

General Mach Discussion / M03 Not working
« on: April 16, 2018, 03:06:22 AM »
Ive just been upgrading my plasma table, but I must have inadvertantly changed a setting somewhere.

When I click 'spindle toggle' in diagnostics it turns on and off my plasma 'cut' relay.

But when I type in M03 or M04 it doesn't operate.
Also if I turn on the relay with the screen button it won't switch off with M05

Could someone just give me a nudge?

Thanks Again

I tried this with some success, I could turn  output 3 on but it didn't turn off again.
Output 1 and 6 did nothing.

What am I missing?

Thanks for the prompt reply.

General Mach Discussion / Adding outputs controlled by custom buttons
« on: March 17, 2018, 09:33:27 AM »
My first post here.

I have built a  Plasma table from scratch which works well.

I am now adding some extra functionality to it.

It uses a UC400ETH notion controller.

I wish to add a custom button to my mach screen.

I am using the spindle relay on my breakout board to trigger my plasma, I would like that when the custom button is clicked another output operates whenever the spindle does.

Reason for this,  I have mounted a visible laser to the plasma torch and i want the laser to operate instead of the plasma cutter, giving a visual 'Dry run'.

I know I can do this with a mechanical switch but I would like to use Mach3 to control it.

I have used Machscreen to add a button and then I assume I need to write a brain or some VB to complete the task.

If someone could point me in the right direction I'd very much appreciate it.

I am new here.
In the UK

Just for interest I have built myself an 8 x 4 Mach3 plasma table.

I'm making some alterations to it now with torch height control and a laser guide.
