Hello

I buy a 4axis cnc board controler TB6560 but the LPT signal out is not compatibile with jedi setup.
I make a converter to pins but motors working only to 1 step.
It is possible working the board with jedi.
The board working with dir/step and enable.

Hello,

What kind of signal do you need ? If you build a converter, you just have to select the right dll file.

Jerome
Configuration pins of signal on board is:
x dir - pin1
x step - pin16
x enable - pin4
y dir - pin7
y step - pin14
y enable - pin17
z dir - pin6
z step - pin3
z enable - pin5
c dir - pin8
c step - pin9
c enable - pin5
I change to pin spec for Jedi configuration
x,y,z,c but the enable mount all to pin17
Is it possible separate enable to spec, pins?

Hi !

I think that just one motor run correctly ?

Jedicut control just one "enable" signal. Try to connect pin 4, 17, 5 and the last pin for "enable" signal on your board (there are 2 pin number 5 in your list).

Jerome
Before I ask You I change the pins at first time:
X,Y,Z,C to specyfic pins corectly by Jedicut program and my enable signal I mount to 17pin with specyfication Jedicut. But motors runing only by one step. Somethimes runing by clic to right but another clic run to left by one step. The working motors is step by step when I click not non-stop.
Maby working by prefered dll files. ?
I ask you because the my method is bad, motors not working.
Maby i forget something?
Hi
Maby not working because my board start with enable=O, do you have a dll files with enable=1 to pin17
I'm using a XP OS.

Did you ever figure out how to make this work with this board? I have the same set up. I made a custom cable and everything work great with a different foam cutting software. I want to try this one but I have not had much luck.

Hello!

See setup and info (this is TB6560AHQ) : H2 PCB CNC Controller

www.hobbycnc.hu
Hello
From what I understand it to work properly with the program jedicut need an additional module or signal generator.
The first question is whether it will work with my board which is different from yours. My board is 4axis based on TB6560HQ bought on ebay.
Second question: after the construction of the module where you connect it to the board, little is written about this on your site.
If you send me additional information to my email address it was grateful.

Dan,

What other software do you try and what result do you have using Jedicut now ?

Jerome

What software have you been using with your TB6560 (4-axis hotwire CNC configuration) ?

I have Mach3 and Profili2 basic version. My CNC Machine is under construction at the moment, but I want to be ready to go on the software front, some bench testing done so far with Mach3 only.

Profili2 looks fine for a complete airfoli, but I would like to do some more complex cuts without having to move my foam block (Stacked partial airfoils with the rear cut to a taper for elevons and the LE done seperate from other foam, also fuselages).

GMFC can stack airfoils etc, but I don't know if GMFC will work on my TB6560 board?

Hi Dan,

the TB6560 4axis cnc board works great! Post this in a other forum.

I am also working on a hot wire foarm cutter. I will cutting wings and complete RC modells (Depron and epp)
The Software I will use is GMFC, Jedicut (timer needed) CNCworkbench and Mach3 with cut2g.
Last week I finished my electonic components.
I use a 4 axis TB 6560 driver board, with 4 Bipolar Minebea 17 Stepper-motors.
I made a small modification on the driver board, I changed the 8 resistors for 0,8 amp phase.
For the heat controll I use a modified ver. from the BB2001. The two switches are for heat on/off and man/pc and
the poti is for manuall temp.. The timer for GMFC or Jedicut is also includet, but I can also use a external
timer modul for example with a NE555. I have all tested and all works ok with GMFC, Jedicut and Mach3.

From the outset, I use Mach 3 works perfectly, I use it to cut out various shapes cut out profiles, however, converging est very difficult, you must manually write g-code, at this time I do a pulse generator to work with my motherboard jedicut.

Rick regardless of software used you will need to make a new cable. All the software I have found todate uses pinss 2-9 for control. That is not direcly compatible with this board. So I take the pins out and switch the wires to the pins the board needs to make it work.

So far the best one I have used for cutting using a controller without a timer is from www.stealthplaneworks.com. It is buggy but cuts really well once you learn the interface. Jedicut will work if you make a timer. I have bought all the parts to make the timer and it cost me like $6 USD. But now I don't think I need it. Jedicut looks to have some really good features in it. The only reason I am not going to use it is that the other one auto calculates and compensates for the kerf once you calibrate your tool and foam. I cut short highly tapered outer panels and that feature really comes in handy.

Working with a coworker to make a new one. He can program great but can't fly well. Code for replacement wings sounds like a great trade to me.

Hello,

After many years cutting foam with templates i decided to make my own cutter. I don't understand much. Bought the electronics and now these days its all simple clicking the components together i thought. Wrong!!!
Bought the 4 axis driverboard Toshiba TB6560, powersupply and 4 Nema 23 steppermotors. With the package came a printer cable.

At first i wanted to use GMFC but as far as i understand this is not possible with this board. So the best option for cutting wings is jedicut.
I dont get it working. All those assignments of pins and cable-regonfigs sad smiley

Pease, please please can someone teel me what the pin layout in the parallel cable is and wich assignment i have to make in Jedicut.

Hi All,

does someone have an "ARF" solution to use this card with Jedicut (Cable & Impulse Generator)? I would be a possible buyer for it. smileys with beer

Thanks in advance

I have got the TB6560 to work with Jedicut using Visualcnc_xp no timer to pin 10 on PC.

The settings on the TB6560 board are: current 50% Decay Mode Settings 50% MicroSettings 0.5 ( 0.0025 ).
My cutter is working but I can not change the speed.

For example Nb mm/sec 0.0025 (for correct distance travel)

Settings Cut Speed 2 (2.5 mm/s) 20 seconds to cover 100mm in manual mode
Fast speed 1 (3.3 mm/s) 20 seconds to cover 100mm in manual mode

Cut speed 10 (0.83 mm/s) 20 seconds to cover 100mm in manual mode
Fast speed 5 (1.43 mm/s) 20 seconds to cover 100mm in manual mode

If I use the smooth setting all of the timings above go to 36 seconds for 100 mm travel

When in auto cut the travel times vary from fast to very slow and will not change with cut and fast speed settings
I have used a timer on pin 10 to the Pc but it made no difference.
The machine I have made is usable and I have already cut some nice wings.

Thank you Jerome for all the time and effort you have put into this programme.

Thanks for sharing winking smiley

I just did the conversion.

One thing that is missing is the GND (pins 18-25) in computer -------------------(pins 18-25) in BT6560.

It's seems an external timer is mandatory. I couldn't run Jedicut without it. The motors are running for a short distance. I tried playing with the speed (even with the mm/step) - but I couldn't get it to work.

Did anyone succeed runing Jedicut with TB6560 and without an external timer?

Hello,

It's not mandatory. What value do you enter in Jedicut's speed settings ?

I do not use a timer.
My Switch settings on the TB6560 board 1off 2off 3off 4off 5on 6off
I have the same problem with speed there is no difference in speed no matter what number I enter in the fast and cut speed setting.
When in Auto cut my machine seems to have a fast speed & cut speed.
Manual fast and slow are the same speed? but using smooth as well is about half speed.
I can only run Jedicut in 0.5 step mode (0.0025 with my 6mm drives) it will miss steps if run any faster or stalls my stepper motors.
I have used this board with Mach3 and it works much better.( Smoother no missed steps or hissing from the motors) Mach3 is not as easy to use as Jedicut. I am sure in time with help we can get this board to work much better it may need its own DLL.
I am now on my 6th pair of wings and filling my garage with pink & blue foam. Thanks Jerome smileys with beer

In fact I don't know how improve Jedicut for your board. Do you have any idea ?

I also have no idea how to improve my setup but it works when cutting a wing so I am very happy with that.
When in manual control speeds are a bit odd, but when I cut a wing I get fast start to airfoil section, slow cut for cutting the foam, fast exit from foam then slow return for second pass,fast start again,slow cut ,fast exit then slow return to stop.
Is there some sort of default setting for cutting the wing within cycle of cut manager?

Rob

Jedicut only use the cycle of cut manage. Of course Jedicut use a default cycle of cut but you can change it with the cycle of cut manager.

Jerome
I need to be able to inverse the 'enable' signal on my pin 1. (Mach 3 lets me do it...)

I used a paralel port monitor program and managed to toggle the bit while jedicut was moving and... the motors moved.

Is there an easy way to tell Jedicut to invert that signal ? (i don't want to build a board for that).
