    Default How to Make 8 Axes Screen for KMotionCNC

    Hi everyone

    I did configured 8 axes using kflop controller board.

    But now i am facing a new problem, There is no U and V axis Jogging and Status Screen.

    Screens available in screen folder is for 6 axis maximum. But i want to use all 8 axes X, Y, Z, A, B, C, U, V on KmotionCNC application.

    Please help me in making custom screen for all 8 axes.

    Thank You

    Hi Amit,

    KMotionCNC doesn't have DRO or Jog buttons for the U and V axes. What kind of machine are you building that needs them?

    You could create a screen with the KMotionCNC Screen Editor to Jog using a momentary button to set/clear a bit in KFLOP.



    A Program in KFLOP could then monitor the bit and Jog when it detects the Bit. This wouldn't have all the functionality of the XYZABC Jog buttons but would allow basic Jogging.

    A DROLabel could be used for Axis Destination/Position Status.

    For more info see:

    Hi Tom,

    Its My research project that needs all 8 axes.

    You could create a screen with the KMotionCNC Screen Editor to Jog using a momentary button to set/clear a bit in KFLOP.
    How to do that , i tried it setting and clearing a bit. But for jogging which C program i should use.

    I don't understand that, what does it mean ?

    How to monitor bit and jog when detects the bit.

    Yes i need basic jogging for U and V axes.

    A DROLabel could be used for Axis Destination/Position Status.
    How can i use the DROLabel for Axis Destination / Position Status ?. Do i have to run a C program ? If yes then which program i should use for this ?


    Thank You

    Regards

    Hi Amit,

    See JogWithTogglesAndPot.c as an example.

    Yes you would need to create/modify a C Program yourself to periodically put the status into the DROLabel that you would like to display. Here is video of a DRO displaying FeedRate as an example. You would probably want to display ch6->Dest (axis 6 commanded destination) instead.
