Mach3 gcode parameters
« on: June 17, 2020, 08:10:54 AM »
Hallo

We had an old machine with Siemens 810 control. So we retrofitted it and using mach3
Im working on translating the old programs into mach3.
Most Parameters and Unary/operators are in mach3 gcode manual, but can’t find code for programing “jump” and “if” functions in mach3.
Thought "GoTO N20" should work, but doesn’t recognize the command "GoTo"
Siemens 810 equivalent  "@100 K10"
Subprograms and parameter calculation works like a charm, but the jumps/if doesn’t.
Anyone able to help?

Mach3 has no loops jumps or ifs, Mach4 has full Macro support

Just  a thought , (;-) TP
