i know a lot of people think it's not possible to have 5 axis kinematics with mach3, but wait the demo version and you could judge it ( two month an half of working to create the plugin)

thanks

Hi,
Sorry for the delay, the plugin will be available tomorrow.
Some changes since, you will have now the possibility to test the editor but with a limited lines numbers.

KRW, I did check and it IS theoretically possible to do it . But doing kinematics in Mach3 really ONLY has an advantage when working with rotary jointed arms such as robotic arms.  The only advantage it serves that I can see in normal CNC work is you can world point jog.

Normally the CAM does all the kinematics calculations and applies it to the Gcode output. SO to do most 5axis work you will still have to Cam it.

Waiting to see the demo, (;-) TP

Hi BR549,
Thanks for your interest but i'm sorry to say you that, but i think you dit not understand the aim of my plugin. I wrote this plugin to use kinematics moves to help us to position tools in differents plans with goods coordinates for precision milling like a real 5 axis milling machines without cad-cam software using (positionned milling,  not continuous milling). Not just for simple kinematics moves. A video will watch a real use of the plugin in the end of tutorial.
Best regards

You are correct(;-) I have no idea what you are planning. Without seeing the mach3 screen when the machine is in motion to see what code you are running it all looks the same from here.

Tweakie can you translate to me what he is doing ? I don't read French.
