Modifying Z axis
« on: October 05, 2007, 08:16:12 AM »
Hi folks,
Is there any way to change the way of controlling Z axis. This is what I need: when Mach needs to change value of Z, firstly to Deactivate Output(1), and then, after taking desired position, to Activate Output(1) again.
It is very hard to edit G-code all the time and entering rows before and after moving Z.
Another question: is there something about SystemWaitFor(*********) that I don't know, 'cause I build some M6Start script which has to wait each tool to touch inductive sensor and then to take it back, but it doesn't seem to be working

have a look at the Brains, should be able to make one up to activate/deactivate your outputs by looking at the DRO.
