Hellow Hood, attached is the modified xml file with OEM trigger 1 set to start cycle as an example of how I am setting these.

Ho! I'm sorry, I didn't understand that right away. I'll try to get it done and send by tomorrow. Thanks

Hi Hood, isn't it the one I've sent 4 posts ago?

Already done it several times and also with different pin #, but no results.

So far no, as when something does not work, I revert back to the last working settings to keep as clean as possible. On the otherhand I need to assign OEM triggers on pins 2 to 7 of Printer Port 2.
Thanks Marting

Hi Hood, attached as requesed .... much appreciated, Thanks

Hi to all, I've just installed Super PID on my CNC router, which is controlled by Mach3 (via printer port #2, since port #1 is totally occupied by the Rutex servo drives) and while on the fly, i decided to also throw in an encoder for fine positioning and also 6 push button switches to activate Start, stop etc (also connected via printer port #2). So far the PID and positioning encoder are working as expected, however I cannot get to set the OEM triggers to communicate through pins 2 to 7 (of Print Port 2). Now.... I know that pins 2 to 9 are originally outputs, however in the "Ports and Pins" - "Port Setup" I set the outputs of port 2 to inputs. Further more in the "Input Signals" it says that only pins 10-13 and 15 are inputs, which is probably the source of my difficulty. I have also tried going around it through the Keygrabber but to no avail. I am a bit confused how or from where to get these set. Does any of you guys have any idea how to go about this? thanks

Sorry forgot to include the picture.

General Mach Discussion / Re: 4th axis problem

Hello, I have a similar problem but cannot figure out what is wrong. I've just finished building the 4th axis and all seems to be functioning as it should. After having designed (in Aspire with wrapped axis) a stepped cylinder (with 2 different diameters) and put some letters to engrave on each diameter. When previewing the cutting paths in Aspire all seem to look as intended but when importing into Mach3, the areas where the engraving is suppose to go are being replaced with an engraved belt all the way along the diameter (as can be seen in the attachment). when simulating in Mach3 it seems that the governing axis is the A axis as it is continually turning about it's axis and ignoring the Z axis position. I've tried going through both Mach3 and Aspire settings for the 10th time with the hope of finding something but to no avail. Does anyone have any idea what may be the cause.

Hi Hood,
Not surprised some setting here would be the culprit and although I have read the manual and set Mach3 to the best of my understanding, I would not exclude that there may be some fine tuning that I may not be aware of. So here we go ... attached is the XML file for mach3 but the cutting path is lost somewhere on my hard disk as this was done in the early stages of my cnc build, however on the other hand the file seems to be OK after having run it on a piece of waste material at a lower cutting speed. You think you would still need it? If so I'll try to find it somehow.
