Setting up a pendant.
« on: May 06, 2006, 01:04:42 AM »
Im going to build a pendant for my cnc.  Its going to have jogs for all the axis.  Plus a Estop and a program Start and Pause.

I need to know how to program mach3 for the Program Start and Pause.  The rest i know how to do.  I cant find a place to put a port and pin in for it.

Thanks Eric,

You need to add the buttons to the "system hotkeys setup". In there you are going to need to put 1001 for cycle start (this is going to change Very soon because Art is doing some updates). The button code will be run by the Trigger# under the ports and pins inputs...

That should get you started.
Fixing problems one post at a time ;)
