Alway run a G28 at the end of a file
« on: December 05, 2007, 10:58:18 AM »
Hi

Are there any way to make mach3 put a G28 at the end of all files, so that the machine always return to home after a job has finished?

Run most my files via LC, can it be done when posting from here?

Try adding a % character at the end of the file after the M30. You should have the ability to configure the post proccessor to do that automatic when generating the nc file. Works for me.

Hi Cory,

I don't use LC, maybe Brian or a LC user can step in here, I use ProfileLab from Cadlink to generate the Auto nesting and toolpath. But most post processors of nesting software like Sigmanest, Promotion nest, Turbo nest etc. has a facility to edit the post processor. In ProfileLab you physically edit the .ini driver file. I will have a look at LC but I must be honest, it will take a while as I am not familiar with Lazycam. Just for interest sake, ProfileLab has a driver for Mach3 with a reference as Absolute routing. It is an option at install time.

Hi, Cory

Hears a post for LazyCam below, Put it in C:\Mach3 folder, I added G00 x0 y0 z0 and M30 to the end.

When you get ready to post Click Post then use Set Post Processor, Change to Test Mill Example.PST, zipped.

In the latest ver LC 2.61 it doesn't show it's loaded it but it is loaded, Click OK.

You can edit these posts with text editor, The code I added is at the bottom of the file.

Do an Air Cut First, These are old pst's, Looks OK hear air cut.

Hope this Helps, Chip
