Create it in Notepad, it looks correct in both Notepad and the editor.
Create in the Editor, and it only opens correctly in the Editor.

Not if you invested in a CS-LABS controller

I would think you could get 75% of it's original cost on Ebay. ;)

Maybe but

1 - its only just been built :(

2 - what other unit is as robust, complete and will work with 0-10v servos ?

Analog servos limit your options. CNC Drive is supposedly working on an analog board, but I have no idea what it will cost, or when it will be available.

Hi,
CsLabs have a Mach4 plugin which by there own admission is a work in progress but all the basic stuff works.
You could therefore use your existing hardware with Mach4. Lua is precompiled and so you don't get
compiler errors at runtime.

Thanks, I have been looking at this tonight, just catching up really.

I gather i would need the industrial license to be above board - i run a micro business but the price is out of my range at present.

I'll stick with Mach3 for present, lets see how it likes precompiled macros ;)

Hi,
an industrial licence might be neccessary eventually but what I'm suggesting would cost nothing...just download
Mach4Hobby and the CSLabs plugin and firmware an try it in demo. Free is within even my budget!

My issue is not wanting to upset my machine - it gets used, a lot. Updating the firmware would mean ensuring i can return to my version, Its not just a matter of trying it - i have little doubt it would probably work but, to actually "use" it would mean a lot of macro work, screen customising etc - i need two installs as i have a separate high-speed head on my mill so i use a different profile because this setup does not work like the standard Bridgeport setup.

I would need touch-plate probing on one, rigid tapping on the other, tool length comp fed to the knee axis, a custom file load option to comment out any G43 lines as the TLC is fed direct to knee, spindle power DRO, height-setter DRO with buttons for loading the tool table, soon it will have a power drawbar of some sort and in the future it will sport an ATC.

Simple really ;)

Hi Dave,
if you rule out all other solutions it rather sounds like 'scripter compile errors' are a fact of life.

:) It is what it is, not an average Bridgeport conversion.

Lets see how it plays with pre-compiled macro's.

Errors and bugs are ok, but this particular one breaks tools and spoils work and to make it worse it is random :)
