    Turn on spindle (wood router) via UCCNC ?

    Hi guys, I don't have a real spindle for now but I would like to turn on some relays on my controller break board.
    "Pin 14 / Port 1"

    How is this accomplished with UCCNC?
    I would probably like to also make a button to manually do this before running the G-code.

    I am willing to watch and read if some can please point me in the right direction.
    I know the I want my code to output an M03 code and M05. And I am guessing I need to map those inside UCCNC to pin 14?

    Thank you in advance.

    Thank you, now I just need to figure out how to connect the router to my control board (PNDX-126). And how to make a button on the screen set.
    Are these any tutorials out there?

    Connecting the spindle is your business. But, there are buttons already on the main screen:



    You can find the full documentation in the folder UCCNC\Documentation.

    Suck they don't include the source editing files for the buttons. PS, what does JSP do or mean?

    I think I will be moving some things around and getting rid of some stuff. Specially the GOTO ZERO button. I dislike that function.

    No, it does not suck, because the source code of buttons are accessible and editable. Except buttons which are basic and simple functions like Zero all, Home all etc.
    Basic button codes you can find in this document: UCCNC/Documentation/Buttons_by_number.htm
    Specially the Goto Zero button is fully editable, it is in the M204 macro file.

    JSP is jog safe probe, if enabled the jogging stops when the probe hit.

    Graphics and art are also accessible and editable.
    The images are in the UCCNC/Flashscreen/BMP folder.
    The screenset is in the UCCNC/Screens/ folder.

    You can edit the images with any picture editor, e.g. paint, paint.net, etc.
    You can edit the screenset using the built in screen editor in UCCNC, on the general settings page edit screen button.

    FoxCNC1,
    Don't try to find out everything by yourself in 5 minutes: UCCNC is a complex software with many-many features and possibilities. I think, first you should read the manual.
