G-code to RML-1 converter

This would be super handy for all the thousands of older Roland machines out there! Let's bring them back from the brink of obsolescence! :D

If anyone is a bit handy with Visual Studio maybe they could have a look at it?

Re: Roland TS-400 - Help - drivers/software

I'm sure the wiring for the brass puck is in the manual. It's just shorting the circuit - you'll not blow anything. Measure the depth of your puck with a micrometer and input that in Vpanel. I think it was 15mm as default? I guess you never received the last private message - it seems to be stuck in...

Re: Roland TS-400 - Help - drivers/software

It's just a brass/metal puck with a known depth that earths when the endmill touches it...

From memory - it's an ordinary everyday 3.5mm jack.

I'll see if I have any photos.

messaged you a photo but seems to be stuck in my outbox...

Re: RotoCAMM TS-400E

A rash 3 minute decision indeed! After a quick read through the forum you'll notice that everyone on the forum actually goes out their way to be very helpful. I guess, you being a software engineer, you're not into a bit of banter?

I hope you're not 59 by the way - that would be a bummer...

Ha, Ha! Not the one that just sold on Ebay? That was a premium price!

I'd definitely look elsewhere if you're main material is going to be aluminium...

Engraving uneven surface

At the end of my tether with this. There must be a solution to engraving uneven surfaces. By uneven I don't mean bumpy I mean a gentle variation in surface height. What ever happened to the ZCS-1 piezo sensor? I can't justify a new machine when this one works so well at everything else. Looks like I...

Re: Retro Fit with MPX-90 head?

Always worth asking - it might have been easy. Not that anything is every easy.

It could have been that the voltages going to the spindle were translatable to the engraving head...
