General Mach Discussion / Turn cant find Set file
« on: March 26, 2008, 11:01:34 PM »
All of a sudden (of course I didnt have anything to do with it) Mach3turn cant find a set file. Even after removing all Mach programs and reinstalling 2.63 Mill does ok but turn, as confirmed by ports and pins, either loads the mill set file or none at all.  Any ideas? Thanks, Ben

LazyCam (Beta) / Tool save for Turn
« on: January 02, 2008, 09:49:42 PM »
I just bought Lazycam Pro. How do you save a tool type in the Turn side of Lazycam? I'm also having trouble getting it to give me a useable gcode file of a simple curve like the shape of a bullet. TIA, Ben

VB and the development of wizards / Dosen't see change

Dim Val
Val = GetOemDro(83)
Call SetOemDro(150,Val)

This gets the current X position and writes it to softlimit Max X but the program dosen't recognize it until I click Config/Homming/limits. I thought the softlimits toggle would cause the program to look there for new info.

Mach Screens / Setting softlimits
« on: September 27, 2007, 08:56:13 PM »
I have a Bridgemill, lathe and Mill combo, and my configuration changes quite often. I would like to change my softlimits to accommodate the changes by moving the X and Y-axis to where the new limit will be and press a button to store that position as the new softlimit and display them on screen.
    Has anyone written code to do this or any suggestions? Thanks

Which plasma cutter should I get?  I cut nothing thicker than ¼” and mostly 1/8” steel. It’s non production work in a money limited home shop and I need one that is Mach 3 friendly. Thanks.
