New PlugIn
« on: January 16, 2007, 10:28:14 AM »
Hello,
I wanted to tell you that I made you all a gift in my free time ;)
This Pluging is Called JCode (Jog to Gcode) I have no idea what you will use it for but it is a fun toy and could be used to make your machine do great things like dip a tea bag and stir in the honey all by jogging!

Or you could use it to teach facing a part because Cam is just to slow... that works for me too (I would rather have a good cup of tea) 

You can get it here on the Plugin's page:

Thanks
Brian

Thanks! This actually could be handy in a number of things. It would make a neat way to teach a multi axis robot moves.

My thoughts too. I wonder how hard it would be to track movements from encoder input instead of jog input?
That way it would be easy to show a robot how to spray a car etc.

Oh did I say thanks Brian? Thanks mate.

This was covered in the feature requests section a while ago, a Brazilian guy, Junior, was working on a board that converted encoder inputs into step and direction signals, so you could control a robotic arm in real time, no move recording tough.

Hi,
 
I would like to capture four axis with JCode, and to transfer "Rec Point" to external button. Is possible?
 
Thanks.

It is only 3 axis at this time :( But I think I can add a 4th axis... The external button is not going to be simple :( I will think about that one, somhow I have to pass that the Key has been pressed from Mach3

Thanks

Hi Brian,

It would be GREAT if you and Art could add a general 'button pushed' event to the Mach3 plugin SDK, just like you fire a realtime callback for the 'reset' button, I would LOVE it if I didn't have to poll for button states in my plugins.
