Change or map axis on Pokeys57CNC
« on: December 03, 2016, 12:25:56 PM »
Hi all,

i have big problem or i dont understand th manual.

I use the Pokeys57CNC on a combi lathe/mill.
The axis x, y and z works perfect on the mill, but on the lathe i will be deactivated the z-axis from the mill and change the y-axis from the table to the z-axis.

If i use my old lpt interface, i could change the pins in the port&pin setup-->Motorsettings, but the 57CNC didn't use pins.
The stepper driver are connected to motor port1, motor port2 and motor port3.

I hope somebody can help. Sorry for my bad english.

Thanks

Hello kiely,
do you realy use different Profile in mach3?
I use normaly on one Machine two Profiles: one for 3 Axis an one for the 4 Axis use.
I tried up one who i made the 4.th axis to the spindle so i could try out something as a late.

Hello eurohoppel,

yes, i have two differnt profiles, but i can't change the second motor stepper port (57cnc) to the z-axis (3 position in mach3)

When you like to swap tue axes it is released under Mach4.
With mach3 you can´t do that. :-\
I know only switch on / off an axis over diffrent profiles.


look at the pulse engine document.

That does not sound good! Now i must buy the new version???

Is it not possible to program an assignment for the motor ports?

thanks kiely

simplest would be a simple switch with multiple contacts which will route the signals to whatever drive you want, or use some kind of plug connector and swap

as suggested here

From pokeys support replay says that swapaxis does not work on Pokeys

hello danilom,
i agree with you as long the switch has no dust on the contacts!
it is an simple solution but you can´t change your config in your nc if it is used.

now i have fix it!

i use a changer relais between the y and z axis motor. the relais is connected to an output port of pokeys.

if i use the lathe profile, the relais change automatic the motorports when outputsignal in mach3 is on.

thanks for tips and helping
