There is an encoder on the servo motor, which has an index pulse. I could bring that index pulse back to any of the available inputs, but it sounds like there is no way to wire it to the standard set, I would have to bring it to J7 or J8 and have the closed loop option. That's too bad because it would be a very useful thing to do as most people that use servo's will have that index pulse available.

HiCON Motion Controller / Homing using home switch AND encoder index?

Can you setup the Hicon to home using a switch and then the encoder index pulse without connecting the encoder itself in closed loop mode? Can't I just bring the index pulse into one of the other digital inputs?

0 = our axis number

Is this truly axis number or is it motor number?
i.e. 0=X ... 5=C
0=Motor 0 ... 5=Motor 5

I can get G65 to work, but G66 is puking. Is there a format error?
Code like this;
N54 (Drill - J End Bottom)
N55 G66 P10003 X1.3100 Y0.9400 K0.14 J1 I0
N56 X2.7400 Y0.9400 K0.14 J1 I0
N57 X1.3100 Y-0.9400 K0.14 J1 I0
N58 X2.7400 Y-0.9400 K0.14 J1 I0
N59 G67

Screen designer tips and tutorials / Bold Text not staying Bold?

Why in Mach4, when I edit a screen and set text to be bold, does the screen revert to normal when restarting?

No, I work with him.
Yes, this is a momentary contact button wired to the motion control board. This is then mapped to be Input #4" on the input signals. So when I push the button, it lights up input 4 in Mach4. We have confirmed this in the diagnostics screen.

How does the 8 axis system work in mach3? I am very interested in doing this with some slaved axis' 8 would be the perfect number for me.
X axis
Y axis with Slaved
Z axis
A rotary axis with Slaved
B linear axis
C linear axis
Can you tell me if this is possible? Each slave could be homed independent?

Is there a standard code to put in the screen designer DRO to display a variable value that will be set via gcode #var?
