Mach3 Threading
« on: July 11, 2012, 08:54:15 AM »
Hi,

I currently have setup my index input in Mach3's Ports & Pins. I have 1 pulse/rev from my spindle encoder and can view my accurate RPM in the spindle DRO on mach. My question is, do I need to configure anything else to do threading or am I all set? Is the index input all I have to set to enable this?

Thanks

Only other thing is make sure you have "Use spindle feedback in sync mode" chosen on Ports and Pins, Spindle page.
Just in case you are using Demo, you also need a licence to thread.
