General Mach Discussion / Re: Digitizing Probe
« on: August 10, 2009, 07:06:46 PM »
I did find out today that the computer and software that came with the digitizer crashed.
I will have a look at the computer as soon as i get a chance but I sure wish mach3 could interface with this system.

Thanks for the info.

General Mach Discussion / Digitizing Probe
« on: August 10, 2009, 12:35:04 AM »
I know this subject has been brought up many times but I have questions on a different
type of probe. A friend has a probe that looks like a robot arm, cost $15000.00 american
dollars and he cannot get it working. the software seems to be dead or something.
I was wondering if Mach3 can receive the signals from the probe. It has a USB plug on it only.
The arm is mounted beside a granite table all nice an level. You double stick your part to the granite
and start probing the various surfaces and the software (hopefully Mach3) records the info. and spits out
a nice drawing but I have know idea what format it would be in. I have not even red the Mach3 probe
directions.

Can someone help me or get me going in the right direction.

Thanks
Tommy

General Mach Discussion / SpindleRPM
« on: April 20, 2006, 10:59:56 PM »
How do I set up Mach3 to tell me what RPM my spindle is turning with a simple interupt signal? It only has one notch so it would be one round per pulse.
 I just do not know where to set up the signal.
Thanks

I have my machine going home perfectly but i would like for it to home
"X" and "Y" together after "Z" so it will be a little quicker.
Thanks

General Mach Discussion / Homing "Z" first then "X" and "Y" together?
« on: April 12, 2006, 12:54:41 PM »
Can you set Mach3 to home "Z" then send "X & Y" home together instead of each one seperatly?

Thanks,

Has the problems with backlash comp. been corrected so we can run in
constant velocity mode and use the backlash function?

Thanks
