Mach3 SDK.exe
« on: May 05, 2020, 02:15:59 AM »
Hi guys,

I want to make a plugin for mach3 and I watched the tutorial on the plugin development page and the video showed
a program called Mach3SDK.exe to do the development and debugging in.
Ive downloaded all the SDK files and the .EXE is not there. Dose anyone here have a copy they could send me or post here for download. 

For reference:
The tutorial i watched was "Mach3 SDK (WMV)" on the page https://www.machsupport.com/help-learning/videos-tutorials/


Thanks,

Mark

Hi Mark,

There is no Mach3SDK.exe file as such. The SDK is just a collection of the files you would need to develop your own .DLL using Microsoft Visual Studio C++ and this thread has more details;   http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic,4884.0.html

Hi Tweakie,

There is a tutorial on making a plugin at https://www.machsupport.com/help-learning/videos-tutorials/
The first video under the heading "Plugin Development" shows the guy opening up a program called  Mach3-SDK.exe
It gives you a template to start with and allows for debugging etc, you can also see all the mach3 data that you can link into your plugin. Can you please take a look at Mach3 SDK (WMV) in the above link. Maybe I am missing something basic here. The files in the Tutorials are different than the SDK files I have downloaded from the mach3 website. I have added a couple of screen shots of the above video.

Cheers for your help,
Mark

Hi Mark,

I understand what you say.  OK that's what the guy in the video named his folder but Mach3SDK.exe does not exist.
In the video the debugging template shown is actually Visual C++ 2003 which is the framework for creating the .DLL plugin.
It is perhaps a bit confusing but start out with a blank template and follow James Lenoard's tutorial, it will all make sense in the end ( hopefully  :) ).
