I have seen your example but as DrStein99 said E4 P1 (or E1 P1) does NOT trigger the output...

That is odd I have tested it here a few times  :( Coudl you post an example Gcode and I will see what is going wrong.

Thanks

It works here (after I took the time to hook the test rig up again :) ) You need to have the E number one less then the output that you would like to run :( SO if you would like to turn on and off external output #4 Use "E3 P1" and "E3 P0" .

Thanks

After some tests I found that Ex Px was not able to solve my problem, partly because of the command itself and partly because the problem is more complex than I expected.

Sample code.

G00 X100 Y100
G01 X110 Y110 <------ From the G00 to the G01 movement there is a stop (accelerations-deccelerations)
G00 X200 Y200
E3 P1              <------ Output4 is not activated
G04 P1000       <------ Wait one second
G01 X300 Y300 <------ Output4 is activated together with the movement
E3 P0               <------ Output4 is deactivated with the start of the next G00
G00 X400 Y400 <----- Bacause of the stop (G01->G00) and the fact that Ex Px is activated with the next move command I still get a dot.
                               I also get a few liquid outside of my contour because of the valve response time and the liquid that is "flying".
M18                 <----- M seems to work better with my semifluid liquid. The time delay of the M gives the liquid time to touch the surface
G01 X495 Y495
E3 P0
G01 X500 Y500 <----- This was my last trick. I close the valve some mm before the end of the movement. There is no acc/decc from
                               G01->G01 and the "flying" liquid (from the valve to the surface) is placed well on the contour.

I am using Sheetcam and I don't know if I will be able to implement this trick to the postproseccor. (freehand contours!)

Is it possible to know when I am getting to the deceleration phase and deactivate my output from inside Mach :o
