    PCB Autoleveler Plugin for UCCNC

    Hello All,

    I have written a plugin for UCCNC.
    it is for auto leveling PCB milling.
    Are there people who want it and test it?

    I want to know if there are any bugs....

    there are 3 files.
    first is M331.txt copy it in C:\UCCNC\Profiles\Macro_Default
    second is the AutoLevelerCA.dll copy this in C:\UCCNC\Plugins
    third is a sample pcb gcode file...


    sorry for bad english..

    thanks..

    Cahit,

    thanks for submitting that. Unfortunately I don't have a PCB milling machine yet, I make my PCBs with a transparency and the UV light method. Then I do the hole drilling on my cnc plasma table LOL.

    I'm curious though, what exactly is auto levelling PCB milling ??

    Keith.

    Thanks Cahit,

    I think I understand what it does, it simply gets the exact surface positions of a range of points across the whole board surface then applies any necessary offsets at those "points" (maybe within a square area around each point, +/-X and +/- Y from each point) ??????

    I like that because I've always wondered how you can accurately mill such a small depth on a "flexible" board. You would be completely relying on the board laying perfectly flat with the milling machine table.

    Good stuff.

    cahit, thanks for your hardwork i will be anxiously waiting. I don't want to resurface the spoil board of my 4ft x 4ft machine. If you make a program in following way it will be quite helpful for all of us:

    1- I will place small metallic plates of equal thickness at different locations ( Grid points) of my complete working area.
    2- I will get all the locations data using proximity probe.
    3- This will be reference data and i will use the same to calibrate the Gcode for the work.
    Is it possible?

    I think that's possible, whynot. but I'm not a profesional programmer or cnc machine user. I do it in my spare time just for fun. Therefore I can not promise of when I can program it ...
    and also my english is bad

    oh i have another idea for you. in stead of step 1 can't you use something like this?

    Re: PCB Autoleveler Plugin for UCCNC

    Thank you for the plugin!

    I've tried to mill boards with it -
    фрезеровка плат, подготовка и настройка станка перед работой (pcb milling, board auto leveling) - YouTube

    Several suggestions -

    1. add pause between end of probing and start milling, to let me remove probing tool and prepare for actual milling.
    2. allow to enter values in fileds by keyboard
    3 remove limit (30mm maximum spacing between probe points)
    4 remember last entered settings!
    5 add probe sensor height (I've added it to M331.txt file for me)
    6. remove first G31 probing (or make it optional)

    But anyway it works, big thanks for your plugin!
