Commands on a line.
« on: October 25, 2008, 07:14:00 AM »
My post processor gives some commands in a row.
Mach3 seems not to understand commands in one row, (like that: M1001 M1002 M1003) These are macros.
Is that right?
Is there any way to make it understand? (Maybe by putting between the macros a factor or so...)
Regards,
giannis

Do you have these Macros? They are not standard Mach Macros they are user Macros.

Not sure how many m codes you can have on one line, I think its been a problem in the past but was one of the things Brian has been working on in the last while. What version are you using, might be worth trying with the latest Development version of Mach.
 If that still doesnt help then it should be fairly straightforward to edit your Post Processor to put them on seperate lines as you have obviously already edited it to use  these codes in the first place.
 I will go and test on my lathe and see if multiple m codes work here.

OK just checked here with a few, if I try M7 and M8 on the same line I get an error saying two M codes from the same modal group, best bet is just to edit your post processor to put them on seperate lines.

Actually i can't do it with the post processor, while i don't really know the code.
; Program moves
;
FIRST_RAPID_RATE_MOVE  = "G0 [X] [Y] [Z]"
FIRST_FEED_RATE_MOVE   = "M1001"
FEED_RATE_MOVE         = "[X] [Y]"

This is what it says.
I changed at first feed rate move the commant "G1 [X] [Y] [Z] [F]" with M1001.
Any ideas?

Sorry dont really follow what you are asking. Is the above an excerpt from your post processor?

Finally a sollution was found.
I communicated with the software creator.
I just put [13][10] between the commands and at the output file, the commands are on separate lines:

FIRST_RAPID_RATE_MOVE  = "G0 [X] [Y] [Z]"
FIRST_FEED_RATE_MOVE   = "M1001[13][10]M1002[13][10]M1003"
FEED_RATE_MOVE         = "[X] [Y]"

Thank you for the replays.
