Hi Craig,

I have a Galil motion controller and two Contec PCI i/o cards with a total of 64 I/O i can use. the complete system has been working on Camsoft with tool changer but im changing to Mach3. I need to be able to access more inputs into mach3. The Contec cards work in Mach3 but i can only use input1 input2 input3 so on and so on. i need to be able to go input25 input26 etc.

or a VB script that lets me access the input directly, something like input (port3.bit25) ??


General Mach Discussion / Adding more inputs or outputs to Mach3

Hi All,

Is it possable to add more inputs and outputs to the system? The ports & pins section with the user defined inputs and outputs, there are from memory 15 user inputs and 20 user outputs. I need more to run my tool changer. I have two PCI cards in the computer with 64 input/output pins which work with mach3 but i can only access them by port3,x and port4,x    ie set output 1 to port3 pin 2 etc etc in the ports and pins setup.
Can i directly address the ports and pins in the VB coding without calling it output1?? or can i add more user inputs and outputs to the ports&pins menu??


Mach SDK plugin questions and answers. / Mach3 SDK.exe

Hi guys,

I want to make a plugin for mach3 and I watched the tutorial on the plugin development page and the video showed
a program called Mach3SDK.exe to do the development and debugging in.
Ive downloaded all the SDK files and the .EXE is not there. Dose anyone here have a copy they could send me or post here for download. 

For reference:
The tutorial i watched was "Mach3 SDK (WMV)" on the page https://www.machsupport.com/help-learning/videos-tutorials/



Contec / Adding more inputs to Mach3 to run Contec card
« on: May 02, 2020, 10:59:51 PM »
Hi all, I have A Cincinnati Milacron machine running two PIO16/16t cards and a Galil motion controller. The software is Camsoft and I am changing it to run on Mach3. Mach3 is loaded and the Galil plugin and Contec plugin and working good. The Contec cards mainly run the 24 tool ATC and I would like to make a macro in Mach3 to run it like Camsoft does. The problem is I do not have enough user input/output controls in the Ports & Pins menu in Mach3. There are 15 user inputs and 20 user outputs from memory. Can i add more somehow so i can use all 32 inputs and 32 outputs on my Contec Cards.
