Moving 2 axis simultaneously with vb
« on: August 11, 2013, 10:05:04 AM »
what i want is swinging the a-axis while the z-axis is moving to a position. how is that posible in vb?
i made this but this wil move the z-axis first and then swing the a-axis. i want this simultaneously

counter = 0
code "g1 z90 f100"

While counter < 20
 code "g0 a0.5"
 While ismoving()
 Wend
 code "g0 a-0.5"
 While ismoving()
 Wend
 counter=counter+1
Wend

thank you for your reply.

counter = 0
While counter < 20
code "g1 z45 A0.5 f100"
 While ismoving()
 Wend
code "g1 z90 A-0.5 f100"
 While ismoving()
 Wend
 counter=counter+1
Wend
End

hi,

tnx for your fast reply, but this is not the effect i want, i will try to explain what i need.

the z-axis has to move to z90 with f100
while the z-axis is moving the a-axis has to swing with rapid speed (G0) between -0.5 and +0.5 degrees.

i hope this will help to become a sollution.

tnx tantan

That is not going to happen (;-)  Mach3 is a machine tool controller with all axis interpolated. That meaning you cannot seperate individual moves at the same time.

Hi,
Oke tnx, but hw is that done with 3d milling, i assume all axis are moving seperately with their own feedrate?
Tnx tantan

NO they are interpolated at the same feedrate and each axis is adjusted internally to arrive at the end point at the same time. You cannot have 1 axis doing a rapid and another doing feedrate at the same time.
