CSMIO/IP-A Mach4 lathe retrofit
« on: May 04, 2016, 04:46:05 PM »
Hi guys,

I'm doing a retrofit of a small lathe using the csmio/ip-a module, plus the enc & mpg modules once they arrive. I've just got a few queries regarding the functionality of the mach4 plugin cslabs have provided. I've tried setting up my spindle today, but can't seem to get any analog voltage. I reverted back to mach3 briefly and can get the spindle running easily. The setup is slightly different in mach4 and I'm not familiar with it yet. I just wondered if anyone has already got a machine running on the same setup? I've read that threading and rigid tapping aren't supported so far and will be coming in a later upgrade, any ideas when these updates are likely to be?

Thanks.
