Mach3 turn wizard. How to link wizards?
« on: May 11, 2010, 03:32:23 PM »
So, I want to use basic wizards to run a more complex work. I mean, for example, facing then reduce the OD and then taping the part with a defined angle in the lathe chuck.
Is there a way to concatenate all of these operation and produce a more complex part code?
I hope you understand what I mean.
Thanks.

Afraid the only way would be to open one wizard and post the code, then edit and save as . Then open another and do the same until you have all of the operations you wish then last step would be to open all the files in notepad and copy and paste into one file.

Only thing I can think of at the moment is have a relay with LED connected to the normally closed contacts and use the enable signal to control the relays coil.

i've done this a few times with circular pockets in a panel, and as Hood has said post the wizard, goto edit and save it. Then open your program and goto edit and cut and paste the wizard into the program.

You could set home at a spot away from the piece and thus have a work offset. Then you could run each wizard without pasting them together.
Have a look at Appendix "F" in the LazyTurn Manual.

Thanks everybody.
I supposed that the only was to cut and paste from a set of GCode program.
I'll have a look at that appendix Rich. Maybe something we don't know is in there....
