Galil / Re: Mach3 + Galil

Cool!  Glad to hear it is getting there.

Question, Say i wanted to do 5 axis kinematics, it that something the co-processor on the Galil handles or is that still mach math?

Yea it would be a huge task! Writing a os is a colossal undertaking, look at m$ they have been at a LONG time and still can't get it right!

There is an embedded version of xp. I haven't played with it. It is basically at the core just minus all the bloat.

I think that would be the closest to a purpose built os. There is EMC and that runs under Linux..


More than likley is is a high frequency snubber and back emf protecter when the direction relay is opened. It is there to help protect the pwm dc spindle driver and cut back on rf noise emission.


Think of output 6 as a place holder.
Go to ports and pins> outputs  scroll down and look for out put 6, enable it and assign it a port and pin and that should do it. Again i haven't used it yet so i am not the best to answer all these questions i am just guessing. So take everything i say with a grain of salt.  ;D

My diode driver can accept ttl, or analog. If your ps has a true + and - input (balanced) then you should be able to simply tie the minus to gnd and apply ttl to the + input. You may want to check your manual carefully, I would also recommend an opto isolated break out board in case the Chinese ps isn't up to snuff.


There is an option for 2.5d on z in the settings menu, I believe that is what this is for.

I have a 40w 808nm fiber diode array and have been thinking about making an atachment for my mill i just haven't gotten around to it.

Keep us updated..

What will the G100 plugin give me ?
Using M3 2+ and luvin' it

The G-100 is a separate pulsing controller made by Geckodrive. It takes the place of the parallel port.  So the short answer is unless you have a g-100 it won't do anything for you. ;)

We are using MAch2 will upgrade as soon as the router mfg gives us the post file to setup

Ok I had a feeling that might be what is happening. Mach 2 is used OEM by lots of people, that helps explain things.

I See a lot of people using Mach 2 and while it is a functioning version it is not as well supported, the vast majority of work is being done on Mach 3.

So if you are new user using Mach 2 please post and let us know why you chose Mach 2 over three.

Thanks  :D


By the way, If Mach 2 is working fine for you then by all means go with what works, I am just curious.

That is a setting some ware in BobCam. I would also suggest that you update to the latest version of mach 3.  Mach 2 isn't supported any more and most people are using 3.

Ok i will give it a shot. I Have been thinking about setting up a google video or you tube account and just doing an in line link. That would save the forums a lot of bandwith..
