3rd Axis in Mach3 Z. I need it as angular.... How to
« on: August 05, 2014, 03:01:59 AM »
I have my SPM Machine.
I have attached with Mach3.  X,Y,Z running perfectly.

I want configure Z as rotary/Angular axix.

Means If I write G0 G90  Z360  my Z axis machine motor will take one round.

I have setted gear ration like this that in Z360 my motor is running one round. Perfectly working.

But I want, after Z360, Z should be 0.

When I put command G0 G90 Z0, then my motor revers moving, then are coming on Zero.


What I want..... : If I put G0 G90 Z370, in Screen, it shold show +10. motor are moving, but screen is also showing 370. I need screen should show 10.

after 360 it should be 0 Zero.

How to do that, where to do it.....?

I am new in Mach3.

Not sure if you can configure Z to be angular.
You may need to assign the axis as A, then it will be angular.

Just assign your motor to the A axis, instead of the Z axis, and configure your CAM software to output A instead of Z. Or use Find and replace on your G-code and replace Z with A.
