Collision detection on THC
« on: April 11, 2020, 05:26:08 AM »
Hello

Hope someone can point me in the right direction.

I have a Price Cnc THC and I would like to add collision detection when the digitize input is activated.

I'm not sure of the best route to take.

you can do it via macropump macro.

you have to add some code in your digitze macro as well:

Code: [Select]
'put this as the first line in your digitize macro
SetOEMLED(1400,1) 'tell macropum it it a real digitze



'put this as the last line in your digitize macro
SetOEMLED(1400,0) 'tell macropum it it a real digitze is done


the the code for macropump

Code: [Select]
If ((GetOEMLED(1400) = False) and (GetOEMLed(825) = True)) Then
   MSGBox ("Probe hit during cut")
   DoOEMButton(1003) 'Stop machine
End If

something like this should work, code not tested, just written down

anything is possible, just try it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.

Thanks, I haven't done any coding in my files, but I should be able to find my way through it.

there should be a Folder c:\mach3\macros\your Profile Name.

there should be all your macro files, i think your probing will be in M3.m1s
