Unusual situation. I have a piece with 1000+ 1/8" holes that need to be filled with colored epoxy. (Double 12 Domino set) I have an automatic dispenser that drives a syringe that I plan to mount on the Z axis next to the spindle. I figure I can use one of the unused outputs (like M7/M9) to control the dispenser.
My problem is the on/off cycle to fill the hole is only about 200-250ms. How can I accurately control the timing? (Running Mach3)
Will this work?
