  1. mach3 is toggling outputs when loading gcode

    Getting some strange behavior. I have 4 macros for my mill turn setup that i use within programs. One for activating spindle brake, one for deactivating spindle brake, one for activating collet...

    Yep, true. I guess I'm also thinking about emergencies for second op stuff. I'll try boring one and see how it goes.

    On a side note, I got some 135 split points as you recommended in my other...

    Re: Buying stock for 5c collets

    So I was thinking i would just start buying cold drawn for better tolerance, but what downside would there be to just buying emergency collets and boring to fit the cheaper stock? I can get cheap...
  4. Re: Any masters at editing with notepad++?

    This turned out to be ridiculously simple to do on the post. The mach3 post in fusion which is based on fanuc, already has the feature of locking an axis for indexing. All i had to do was search the...
  5. Re: Any masters at editing with notepad++?

    I posted in the notepad forum and got the code needed to make it happen, but i would much rather do it in the post. Do you know how? Or did you just mean its easier because i dont need to modify...
  6. Re: Any masters at editing with notepad++?

    No, I need a new line before and after like this:
    From:

    "B"
    G0 A180
    "B"

    to:

    "B"
  7. Any masters at editing with notepad++?

    This is more of a notepad question, but wasnt sure where to ask it. I have a mill turn setup with a brake for locking the spindle and i need to take gcode files and enter a specific M code before and...

    Re: G4 dwell only in seconds

    i tried experimenting with that last night and the short answer is no, but what it does do might happen to work out. When given any decimal value, it doesnt read the value and dwell properly, but it...

    G4 dwell only in seconds

    When i set configuration to dwell in milliseconds, it still dwells in seconds. i found posts about this issue from almost 10 years ago saying its a bug when using mach3 with smoothstepper. Was this...

    Really hard to figure out what's going on here. I can see from the code it's commanding 11mm moves. With a 4mm cutter, that should be a 15mm square. I hate to ask this, but are you sure your cutter...

    Buying stock for 5c collets

    I'm running into an issue when buying stock. Most of it is at least a few thou oversized, sometimes more. I can jam it in there if I really force it, but there's no way my bar puller is gonna be able...

    I'm pretty sure 2d pocket defaults with stock to leave. Look at your passes tab and see if there's 1mm radial stock to leave

    Mach3 does a normal single stage homing cycle. It moves at a specified percentage of rapid speed until it triggers a home switch (in my case an index pulse) then it stops and zeros machine...
  14. Macro for multi stage rotary axis homing

    I already have my 4th axis homing working with ref A using index pulse, but I want it to be quicker and more accurate. With anything faster than extremely slow, it overshoots beyond the index pulse....

    Re: Macro cycle with variables

    Figured it out. Didn't realize they were referred to as parameters.

    Macro cycle with variables

    I need to write a couple cycles. One of the simple ones will be for bar pulling with my mill turn spindle. Let's say I call my macro M1250 and I want a variable "p" for the bar pull distance....
  17. Re: need tool change stop to be conditional

    Perfect, message box will work fine if its still only one click
  18. Re: need tool change stop to be conditional

    ok, ill write it and see how it behaves. Maybe Gerry will chime in on the mach3 specifics.

    I also still need to know this part:
    "how do i get an m6 to run without a stop between m6 start and m6...
  19. Re: need tool change stop to be conditional

    Ok, as long as i know its ok to use m1 within a macro, i should be good to figure it out from there.

    heres an example of my variable naming question, lets say i come to a T2 M6 with tool 1...
  20. need tool change stop to be conditional

    I want to eliminate unneeded tool change stops for my mill turn setup. The milling spindle uses tools 1-100 and requires a manual change. Gang turning tools are 101 and up and do not require a stop,...

    Nice! Cheap too. Don't think I ever would have found that. Not sure why Google didn't hit on that
  22. The problem is, I have to mach3 set up as a...

    The problem is, I have to mach3 set up as a step/dir spindle since that's how my horizontal mill turn servo spindle runs. The swap axis macro just switches the pin out between the vertical and...
  23. Need to control huanyang 2.2kw with step/dir, convertor?

    You might ask why, it's for my mill turn setup running on mach3 which has a vertical milling spindle (huanyang vfd), and a servo controlled horizontal turning spindle. I have it working already using...
  24. Don't think fusion has plunge milling cycle, but...

    Don't think fusion has plunge milling cycle, but easy to model. Pattern along path. To make the tool path quick, model a tiny hole, small enough to not over lap with the 20% or whatever needed step...

    I figured out the random rapid problem. At least what it's related to. My mill turn setup is a bit tricky since I'm handing spindle control back and forth from vertical 2.2kw milling spindle to...
