If your so old should you not be in bed.  It is late.   ;D ;D

Thanks Guys,
Sorry ,probably need a abit more spoon feeding, on this one.

On the screen design ,do I put a DRO`s and LED`s somewhere,(even off the screen),
and then do I assign it with the codes you gave me in the box labeled "OEM code function)?

Thanks

Don't worry about the LEDs and DROs.

They do not exist as far as the screen is concerned.

They are just like a variable within Mach.  You never need to see them.

Mach will see them just fine even if they are not graphically represented on screen.

So basically copy and paste what you sent and enable macropump and the brain
and it should work.

Yeah that should be it.

Put the macropump along with the two macros named as we said into the macro folder.

The brain into the brain folder.  Enable the brain under Brain Control.

Activate macropump in General Config.

That's the easy bit.  :)

Most people I help have most trouble getting their switches set up to inputs on their BoB.

Well it worked,,,,YAAAAA!!!!  ;D

Thanks so much Greg and Scott,I would have never been able to make that brain.
Great program with excellent support,

Not sure about the delay (safety aspect) side of things with the brains
as the macros will run ,with a quick press of the button,
that is I dont have to hold the button down for 1.5 seconds.
Anyway it works and Iam happy with that.

I have attached a couple of photos of my homemade pendant,
and setup.

The little computer is a EEE pc which works well .

Thanks again
Regards

Glad it is working but I must have made a mistake in the brain timer.

Here is a new brain try it.

No ,Sorry it didnt work Greg.
Came up with trigger error, then shut mach down....whoops?
I have gone back to the old one for now.

Is there any chance you can make the same brain without the
timer function,so I can study whats actually happening before
the timer comes into play.
As I think what appears to happen is that the delay occurs prior
to running the macros.
That is, as the Auto Z zero button is pushed , about a 5 second delay occurs ,before the Z axis moves.


Anyway something to think about I guess.
But I would be greatfull If I could send the Brain without the timer.

Thanks
