How to make Mach 3 to stop after every G-code line?
« on: March 12, 2011, 01:41:26 PM »
Hello I shall do a stop motion animation and I will use Mach 3 to move the camera to the right position for every single shot with the camera. Therefore I will do a G-code with the correct cordinates for the camera for every shot and the question is can I make mach 3 to stop after every G-code line so it just move the camera a tiny bit and continue to the next position when I press a button on the keyboard or so?

Thanks for helping me!

Sure.
Turn on Single Block and the code will run one line for each Cycle Start button press.

Use Single Block button and it will do one line and wait for you to press start. If thats noot what you want can you explain more?
