Spindle output #5 #6
« on: February 07, 2011, 10:43:52 PM »
First, can I change m03 output #5 and make it #1 output? I did and it worked until I turned Mach3 off, then it defaulted back to #5?

Yes, unless that is the DSPMC requires a specific output be set. Did you shut Mach down properly as if not then the xml would revert to what it was before the change.

The DSPMC breakout board matches the Mach3 pin#s. I only have 8 outputs on the board, 1-6 are used for enable, 0 for digit trig, and that leaves me with output 1 to use for spindle cw ( I do need a ccw as well) As I said, If I change It to 1 and not 5  in the spindle setup box, It works until I turn off.

Unless your xml is set read only it sounds like its a DSPMC thing. I have just tested here to make sure and set the spindle relay outputs to 5 and 6, shut Mach down and restarted and they were still set.

What version are you using? I have a similar problem with R3.043.022. It is not saving configuration properly between sessions and not restoring it properly.

No matter what I do, I cannot get it to respect the spindle relay tickbox between sessions. I have the XML open in Opera (search for <NoSpindle> tag) and refresh it each time I do something in Mach. Untick the box: no change to XML. Click Apply: no change. Click OK: no change. Click Config, Save Settings: no change. Exit Mach: XML changes. Reopen Mach (no matter what value is in the tag): tickbox is ticked.

It appears to be the same situation with coolant tickbox and spindle pulley number and speeds.

Sorry to follow up my own post, but version 3.042.040 (the newest older one I have) works properly.

Something also that's strange in 3.043.022 is that it places a mini-XML in the root directory without which you have to agree to the liability disclaimer each time you run.

As I said, 3.042.040 works in this respect as it should. Older versions are available on FTP at the top of the download page, where it says

"For previous versions of Mach and LazyCam, XML's, and other Extra Information: Click Here"

Just to note for others. 3.043.022 also does not respect the pulse speed setting (and this is for a registered version).

The wife says I don't remember things but I do know that when I changed spindle output to #1 it went back to #5 several times, now it doesn't?
