There are a few USB to LPT mach4 adaptors on the market, PMDX-411, PoKeys57CNCd25 for a start.

Mach4 General Discussion / controller
« Last post by Geoti77 on October 20, 2020, 08:03:15 PM »
I am presently running Mach3 and i have a Gecko controller with a parallel port hook up and would like to get away from Parallel port usage ...If i go to Mach4 is there a way to use the same controller but not use a parallel port on my PC(maybe adaptor) or do i need a new controller to get away from Parallel technology

Thanks

Try adding a coroutine.yield() after the mc.mcCntlMdiExecute() command...and remove the coroutine.resume().

That'll wait to set your #3 DRO to 0.00 until the MDI command has finished executing.

Ok so that did not work.
The line after the move instruction is suppose to set the #3 DRO to 0.00 and it stays at 180.

Mach4 General Discussion / complex probe moves not working
« Last post by MikeRD03 on October 20, 2020, 03:44:44 PM »
Hello, I try to get my new 3D touch probe working in Mach4, but I am puzzled with certain not working behavior. While simple probing like edge finding or z-finding works OK more complex moves like finding center of opposite edges do not work. Here the probe should move from the middle past the first edge, dive down and do its probe move.
In my Mach4 it only does the first x/y move behind the first edge and stops. Nothing more until Reset is pressed. Normally it should move down the z-axis to dive in, but it stops in middle of the probing script.
Anybody with an idea what's might going wrong?
I tried different z-settings and even the most recent developer version of Mach 4.2 without any success.

Mike
