mach3 et gerner hs 750
« on: January 25, 2016, 02:12:15 PM »
bonjour,
est il possible de piloter machine gerber hs 750 qui est un plotter cutter.
car je compte l'utiliser en coupeur et ploteur, mais aussi après modif en table 4 axes
par le retrait du tambour au profit d'une table entrainer a la place du tambour.
je ne connais pas trop le système de communication. entre les logiciel et les machine.
ces machine sont équipées de moteur courant continus et codeur optique. elle ont leur électronique intégrées

merci cordialement frank

In my opinion it would not be possible.  :'(

Hi Frank,

As far as I am aware the HS series uses HPGL language. It is similar to Gcode but it does not contain the Z axis position data (other than pen up / pen down). There are some programs available that will convert HPGL to Gcode so it is quite possible that a conversion between Gcode and HPGL could easily be made but, as far as I am aware, there is no way to incorporate any Z axis linear positional data.

Hope this helps.
