Re: Jerky Motion (Mach3, ESS, PicConvert)

I guess what I am asking is.. In PEP6 is there a way to setup the "Laser Control Command" & "Laser Off" like in PicLaser?

Re: Jerky Motion (Mach3, ESS, PicConvert)

Hey Jeff, just wanted to thank you & let you know I gave up.. I returned the PicConvert (both the original and test unit) to Jay. I just couldn't spend anymore time on it. Was it the ESS? the PicConvert? Mach3? No idea. What I do know is that the way it was working was not reliable enough for pr...

Re: Jerky Motion (Mach3, ESS, PicConvert)

I don't know what else to suggest. John does have a Mach3 ESS setup, but does not have a PicConvert board. He uses a DIY built DAC we designed that is shown in our Laser Setup Instructions which J-Tech used this basic design in there PicConvert. https://tinyurl.com/yb6xc7gr I am sure you have told ...

Re: Jerky Motion (Mach3, ESS, PicConvert)

I sent a few help requests out to ppl on another forum that are running the PicConvert (I think) so I am waiting for replies. The only thing that seems to make any changes to the outcome is motor tuning but like I said last week. There is no way to tell if we are going in the right direction when ma...

Re: Jerky Motion (Mach3, ESS, PicConvert)

Jeff, send me your mach3 xml. The one from your 2w machine I believe is the closest to my setup.

Just heard back from my buddy he is going to be out of town for 10 days so that idea is going to the back burner for now.

Re: Jerky Motion (Mach3, ESS, PicConvert)

Ok, second board also lost position. Voltage after run for both boards was exactly the same 1.03v. I am going to run it again with the new power adapter jay sent. I am beginning to think that this is all mach3. Only thing I can think of next is to see if my buddie will run my test on his machine. Ma...

Re: Jerky Motion (Mach3, ESS, PicConvert)

I got myself into my office and created another image and gcode using parts of the car that seem to cause the pic-convert to get screwy. I wanted to create an apples to apples test for the old and new boards. I then went to the shop and ran it (in “no motor, pic board only” mode) and sure enough it ...

Re: Jerky Motion (Mach3, ESS, PicConvert)

Not yet, I have the second pic-convert but haven’t had time to install. I been sick the last week or so and I’m still laid up. When I’m on my feet again it is my first project.

How did you make out with the storm?

Re: Jerky Motion (Mach3, ESS, PicConvert)

That’s what I figured but what about running it with my xml? I’m guessing we are both stuck till I either get my buddies xml or the next Pic-convert gets here. I will keep testing things here on my end. Even a blind squirrel finds a nut every now and again, lol. We are around 15miles inland also, ju...

Re: Jerky Motion (Mach3, ESS, PicConvert)

I will send you the gcode generated for my small image along with the PEP6 settings screen and you try and run it. Where are you located up there, I don’t want ya messing with my madness if you have “battening down of hatches” to do. It was breezey here a bit ago from the south, then the east now it...
