Mach3 + Galil
« on: September 19, 2006, 03:08:36 PM »
I heard Mach3 was going to be able to interface with Galil products.

If so, is there an approximate time frame. I am trying to source
components. If we are talking 6 months away, I will go a different
route but if it's around the corner, I will work in this direction.

Thanks,

Jorge

Good news :) we have started working on it and we hope to have it working in a few weeks...

After that I will be able to tell you more about how it works...

Thanks

So mach will be like Cam$oft  -$  :o

Is it as complex making Mach work with Galil as it is with the G100?  Or is it more complex? the programming part on your side.

They have both and then some......


Brian,

If you need some one to test drive the software, I'll help with what I can.

So I have run the Galil on the large mill under mach3 :) there are little problems but for the most part it is working very well! I Have it doing CV at about 400IPM on a mill that is 40,000 LB :) I have a video that I will send to Benny to convert to something that you all can read. WE have to get IO finished, homing, toolchanger and spindle. I would like to make it so that others can do there own toolchangers by making a new Toolchange plug in that you can just type the I/O in the order that it needs to happen... There will be more to come when I get to it :)


Thanks
Brian

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?
