Interrupt Button Please
« on: February 12, 2014, 04:02:57 PM »
I haven't had a chance to search the board in depth to see if this feature is already available. On my big machine, a Hurco VM1, I have a Interrupt button on the console. When pushed while the machine is running, it stops running code, shuts down the spindle, turns off the coolant and retracts the Z axis. It allows you to stop in the middle of a job, clear chips, inspect the finish, whatever you need to do. When you're done, you hit Auto and it resumes where it left off. When running Mach and had to interrupt it, I hit Pause on a Z retract, jog out of the way etc.

you could probably through a screen editor change the function of the feed hold button or create a button with the macro that you would like it to perform.
