Resurrecting an old project

Post by FlyingScot » Wed Jan 08, 2020 11:52 pm

Hi Tom

I have decided to complete a part built router I started nearly 10 years ago using kflop & Kanalogue running Parker drives and servo's on kflop v4.22.
Will there be any problems upgrading to the latest firmware?

Hi Tom

Is there any way in finding my old forum posts from September October 2010 so that I can figure out my old settings?

Regards

Hi Tom,

I was unable to find the original posts in the forum so this has turned out to be a new setup using windows 10 as the old PC would not come back to life.
The machine is a simplec 3 axis router using parker servo's and drive's. Spindle will just be a relay switching router on and off.

I have managed to get servo's connected, tuned and have generated the C prog. Installed & configured the mach plugin but not sure what to do in Mach ports and pins settings.

I was going to set the router up in mach3 as my lathe and mill are running mach3 but now beginning to wonder if it is worth it.
I use Bobcad to generate my code files. I can't find a Bobcad post processor for Kmotion do you know of one?

Best regards

Arthur

Hi Art,

Since the Plugin and KFLOP generates the motion the Ports and Pins are mostly not used and are set to a dummy Port 0. See Step 6 here.

No I'm not aware of one. Usually the one for Mach3 should be very similar. If you find one please add it to our wiki here.
