Loading Gcode files from external C# program and running them
« on: January 05, 2016, 06:42:24 PM »
Hello,

The company I work for builds a machine that engraves numbers on plastic casing as part of the manufacturing process of our product.
An enclosure is automatically placed on a small CNC machine, identified by special hardware, engraved and logged in a DB.

I need to somehow control the CNC machine from the main C# program that generates Gcode files with numbers.

I would like to use Mach3 as the controlling software for the CNC machine.

What would be the easiest way to load the generated files and running them from the C# program?
Is there a way to run VB scripts from external program? or I will have to program special plugin that receives command from the C# program?
