Couple of questions about loading GCode
« on: January 19, 2010, 11:55:42 AM »
Working on 'dummy' proofing a new Mach3 powered VMC.  I'm making screens so that the operator wont see GCode or any axis DROS.  Basically, trying to prevent human error on the operators part.  We have many problems with operators changing code on other machines in the factory.

Is there a way to have Mach load a certain gcode file automatically when the software starts?  Once set up this machine will not be running anything else except the occasional ball bar.

Thanks

TOM

In Config->GeneralConfig you can define an M-macro to be run on start-up.  That macro can load a G-code file.
