switch spindle pulley within Mach3
« on: November 25, 2007, 03:32:56 AM »
hi,

i'm looking for a possibility to switch the spindel pulleys within mach3.

my new mill has 6 gears and when i produce anything, its very uncomfortably
to switch to he settings screen and manual switch the pulley.

Maybe a personalized macro like M3.1 (to M3.6) is possible, but i'm not able to write a macro :-(

I don't mean a automatic recognised pulley by the speed-word within the gcode.
i mean just a command to tell mach3 that i switched the pulley.

can anyone help me ?

Thanks
Frank

Hi

Make a macro like M301.m1s for pulley 1
Write in the macro  SetPulley(1) 
save it
and so on for the rest

hope it helps you
