Constant velocity (CV) mode fixed & tested with 3D mill.
2012.06.14 04:29:30

For the last release of myCNC software (version 1.79) we have fixed Constant velocity mode and tested it on "rose" program.

Cutting time was reduced from 48 minutes to 22,5 minutes with Constant velocity mode (Acceleration is 5m/s2; feed is 7m/min; CV tolerance is 0,05mm)

Manual pulse generator (MPG) for CNC control under developing
2012.04.09 04:02:22

We are developing MPG board. We discuss 3 possible versions of MPG - 2 of them with wired connection to Host PC and one wireless:

  • RS485 connection to Host PC with Modbus protocoll;
  • USB wired connection to Host;
  • Wireless connection through ZigBee;


    The MPG board (top & bottom sides) with myCNC-ET1 controller is shown on a pictures

myCNC server provides API for third-party software
2012.04.04 07:12:04

We've implemented server service into myCNC software (version 1.77). Server provides API for third-party software to myCNC control through TCP sockets.

On the video below is shown sample of connection to myCNC with Telnet utility. Through telnet console it's possible to get information about software/firmware version, current machine & work coordinates, any CNC variables, upload/run/stop NC program in G- or ESSI codes.

With "?" command user may get list of implemented server commands.

 

 There are commands available at the moment below

?
ProgramBegin
ProgrmaEnd
ProgramPlay
ProgramPause
GetMachinePosition
GetWorkPosition
GetMyCNCVersion
GetFirmwareVersion
GetFVariable
GetIVariable

Jogging with analogue joysticks is available now on myCNC control software.
2012.02.06 12:46:10

 

2 or 3 axes analogue joystick can be connected through ADC channels of myCNC-ET1 controller and programmed for pendant panel jog  motion. Motion speed is smoothly regulated with about 1% accuracy.

We are working also on MPG (Manual pulse generator) support for myCNC software.

Fanuc-style Macro programming: G65 code implementation.
2011.12.07 12:12:58

G65 code implementation

 

We are working on G65 code implementation which allow to work with parameterized macros. G65 code runs macro program with number, programmed in P parameter.
Up to 21 local variables could be sent to the macro through A-Z parameters.

In a screenshot is shown peck drilling cycle (G83) repeated in a line by running G65 with macro O9911.
Number of drills is programmed by H parameter; distance between drills programmed by U parameter; line angle angle programmed by A parameter.

 

Listing of nc program is below:

%
(XY - position)
(U - distance between points)
(A - angle)
(H - number of points)

G83 Z-10 Q2. R0.5 L0
G65 P9911 X10 Y20 A30 U10 H5

2011.11.30 11:46:48

We have started canned cycles implementation in myCNC.

In the last version (1.72) codes C80, G83, G98, G99 are available. Hope rest of cannedcodes should become available during a couple of weeks.The last version is available on download page

G68/G69 codes works now with planes codes G17,G18,G19
2011.11.24 11:20:11
G68/G69 codes works now with planes codes G17,G18,G19 for myCNC software.

(Described features will be available in myCNC control software version 1.72)

Rotation coordinates codes G68-G69 may be used now with planes codes G17-G19 to rotate coordinates in any of planes XY, XZ, YZ.

On a picture below there is a sample of using G68/G69 codes with G17-G19 plane selection. Also in the sample was used parameterized programming and M98/M99 subroutines (subprograms).

NC codes for the sample is listed below-

Automatic gas console implementation through PLC layer of myCNC-ET1 controller.
2011.11.21 12:37:13

Great sample of using built-in PLC controller is implementation of Automatic gas console control for oxyfuel gas metal cutting.
Automatic gas controle may work under myCNC control software control or as independent unit managed through serial RS485
comminication (Modbus ascii protocol). Aitomatic gas controle control all oxy cutting technology (automatic ignition, forced preheat,
piercing with smooth oxy cutting growth, cutting, after cut soft flame.

Gases pressure for fuel, preheat and cutting oxygene controlled electronically by 3 PID controllers, integrated in myCNC-ET1.

myCNC based mill machine demo.
2011.11.21 12:10:58

This is our 3 axes mill machine based on myCNC (myCNC-ET1 LAN CNC controller, myCNC software, 4x myServo-A01 servo drivers).
NC program was written by manual so tool path is far away from optimal. Cutting speed is 1m/min. Spindle speed is 24000rpm.
