How to create customized drawing of G-code?
« on: May 11, 2017, 07:54:24 AM »
Tell me, please, how to create customized drawing of G-code?

How can I do this in Mach3?

I'm going to do this via m1s-script, but I can not find the graphics commands.


Like this:



Or in window:

You can, to some extent, do this using the 'Teach' function and the keyboard arrow keys but I suggest you use a CAD/CAM program - it does a much better job.

Thank you!

But I need to get the data about a loaded g-code and custom draw it.

This is need for the machine operator.

I think you are expecting too much from Mach3 which is just a Machine Controller - it does not have a CAD function as such.

I do not expect Mach3 to do it for me. I want to make the program myself (for example, in Visual Basic or Visual C ++) for customized drawing.

obviously nothing is impossible but there is no way you can code that into Mach3.

You can make a drawing of a gcode program. This is called backplotting. It basically provides the instructions to
the CAD software on how to draw each coded line. So you get a drawing  of the pathing. You can buy a backplotter program  like NC Plot ($300) or some others.
I use a custom backplotter ( sorry,  can't  share it ).

Thanks for your reply!

Can you tell me more information about this?

How did you develop your custom backplotter?

I looked, NCPlot is a independent program.

I have the my independent program for viewing g-code.

But I need to integrate it into Mach3 (or create new program for Mach3).

Friends, I found a solution: I call the browser using CreateObject in m1s and pass the data to it for drawing.
