Mach4 doing Feed per rev
« on: December 30, 2013, 05:17:36 PM »
Here is a short video of me testing the feed per in Mach4. I also have been testing CSS and will try to get a video out of that working...

It is using the VFD to get the RPM of the spindle over serial modbus so it is not as good as an encoder would be but it seems very good for the tools I used :)

He is the one that started all this with Mach4.. Hood wanted to have better offsets and Feed per rev that worked like this.. So I should have had the preview LOL

Video of CSS, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i02DmXtH3XM
Seems to be working well by the looks of the vid :) Feed per rev definitely looks to be staying constant as the RPM increases :)

All lathe users miss this, hope it can do tool compensation also. Hope this is released soon or a Beta that can be tested.

Tool Tip comp is on the work bench... I have a plan in place on how to do the tool tip comp. So now I have to turn the crank and make the code :) Also this is all in mill at this point so I need to take the time to shift this over to turn and add all the other things I think turn needs (U and W for Inc moves ) Also many of the Gcodes will change.. We can add script calls to shift the machine into Mill mode for you out there with milling on a lathe ;)
