Communication Mach3 external software
« on: May 15, 2015, 04:19:06 AM »
Hello everybody,

I am using mach 3 to control a CNC Router which will be used to verify the precision of an optical tracking system.

The workflow I hope to achieve is this:
1) CNC Router moves to position defined in the G-Code and stops.
2) Mach3 sends a signal to another software “position  was reached”.
3) Mach3 waits for a signal from the external software to start reading the next G-code line and move to a new position.

Can anyone please help me achieve this?
At the moment I am not using any external commands (Cooling, Tool exchange etc…)

I would be very happy, if anyone helps me ;D ;D

To be more specific: I don`t know how to send/receive a Signal from a external software, which is running on the same pc as the Mach3 software. I would like to do it "soft", without using a relais connected to the controller.
