DRO # for Steps Per Inch/mm
« on: April 03, 2008, 11:48:45 AM »
Hi,

I need to be able to access the number of steps per inch/mm. The DRO is located under Config-Motor Tuning. If anyone knows how to get that number, please tell me.

Thanks alot. :)

Hi, Carl

Do the other menus open up under "Config" pull-down list ? (Could have a password set under Operator if none of them will open).

If it won't open the "motor tuning" window only in Mach3, (I've had this happen several times in the past) You'll need to reinstall Mach3.

Make a copy of your Mach3Mill.xml or what ever it's named (profile you load/run with Mach).

It's located in C:\Mach3 folder (standard install for Mach).

Hope this Helps, Chip

I'm sorry, I should have been more specific. I need to use the value in a brain, so I want an address or DRO number. Other wise, every time I change it I'll have to do it twice. I'm trying to design a new screen.

Thanks.

Carl

Hi, Carl

I think that's an internally used xml value. Have a look hear though

The function is

GetParam (name as String) as Double

The string you want is "StepsPerAxisX"  or Y or Z etc.
Not me driving the engine - I'm better looking.
