Re: G-codes/offsets/tools with .Net

Moray, Thanks for the response. I can certainly understand you not wanting to give away all that work, or putting something out there that you don't feel isn't quite finished. But it never hurts to ask. Hope you can get things running how you like. Maybe you can post a short YouTube video of your ma...

Re: G-codes/offsets/tools with .Net

Moray, It looks like you have made a lot of progress on converting to KMCNC to C#. Is this a personal or a work project, and if it is personal... would you be willing to share? Maybe post it on GitHub? I've got an old Bridgeport Discovery 308 VMC machine I've been working on for about 18 months now....

Re: Sharing data and resources between threads

Thanks for the quick reply Tom. KFLOP's UART has a 3 character buffer in hardware and a 1000 character buffer in software. See these definitions in KMotionDef.h Yep... there it is right at the bottom of KMotionDef.h! So I wrote a simple program and loaded it into threads 2 through 7, and put my seri...

Sharing data and resources between threads

Hi Tom, I'm in the middle of rebuilding an old VMC and am retrofitting it with a KFLOP and a custom board that is based on your Kanalog and Konnect boards. The tool changer on this VMC communicates with the KFLOP board through an RS422 interface on the serial port. I have a simple serial command pro...

Re: Kanalog Questions

Thanks for the quick response!

The spindle encoder is 2048 counts/rev. So the kanalog board should be just right.

I just ordered one along with another KFLOP board.

Kanalog Questions

I have recently acquired an older machine that has a Siemens Simodrive 611 (Analog) spindle and servo drive. The computer is an old 386, and the interface board is shot, so the machine is not functional. but the seller assured me that the Siemens drive system is functional. I would like convert this...
