A and B axes
« on: October 09, 2007, 09:54:00 AM »
hi.

I Would like to use A and B axes on my cnc mill, but i would use tham for the rotation. How do i specify that the units are not mm but °, and how can i configure mach3mill to give me a display for A and B axs like i have it for X, Y, Z, and 4?

You just tell it the steps per unit and you are good to go :)

You can modify the screen set using screen 4 to add the dros.

chaoticone what you mean sreen 4 like a program, couse i have 0 experience in programing with visual basic.

Brian it is true i can set step per unit, but the defult units are mm or inch, can i set anyvere degrees, couse it would look nicer.

Screen 4 should have came with Mach. If it didn't, look in the downloads section for it. It is a program for writing screens. THere are also tutors on it as well.
