need help converting a probing script made for linuxcnc
« on: January 15, 2015, 05:49:43 PM »
i have this script that i want to use with a laser probe, i am trying to scan a kite board, usually with linux cnc, you open this script as a gcode but with mach3, it doesnt like it.

the script generate a text file that i can open in a open source program call boardcad.

here is the script if someone can help me:

g21
f1000

(#1=0)       (x start)
(#2=3190)      (x end)
#3=20      (nr of segments; 20)
#4=[[#2-#1]/#3]   (x step)

#5=-268.5      (y center)
#6=10      (nr of points; 10)
#7=10      (y step)

#8=-36     (z safe)
#9=10      (z probe)

#10=0      (current x)
#11=0      (current y)
#12=0      (current z)

#13=0      (previous z)
#14=0      (step size y)

#15=-100   (y safe)
#16=-100   (z probe outline)

#18=1110   (x-value between support / approximately center of board)



O100 sub (subroutine find apex for cross section scan)

   g38.2 z#9

You cannot convert it directly. EMC code and MACh3 code different dramatically in some areas. This is ONE of those areas.

Mach3 cannot do conditional Gcode which is WHAT you have.

Just a thought, (;-) TP

You MIGHT be able to rewrite it as a Mach3 MACRO but it wont be pretty and it wont be fast.
