Hi everybody

I'm doing a driller machine and these are it's main characteristics:

3 axis
3 drillers controlled by pwm mounted in my z axis

Therefore, the three drillers moves at the same time, but with the correct mechanical array, I'm expecting to handle them, one by one when requires, in a independent way.

An example could be this:

I need to drill five surfaces, first three and then the other two, so It would be convenient disable the third drill, there's a way to do that in emc2?

Thanks in advanced

You could use a digital output with g code, a user M1nn, a pyVCP button... to name a few. Just depends on how you want to turn it off and on.

I think perhaps an analogue output would be most appropriate, acting much like spindle speed, and wired the same way.
You might perhaps want to link it via a mux2 in HAL so that it could be turned on and off like the "main" spindle.

So, where normal G-code would have

S300
M3

You might have

M68 E0 Q300
M64 P0

(and M65 P0 to turn it off again)
