Receiving Files Using Remote
To receive a file off your CNC back to your computer,
all you have to do is embed the command and the
filename on its own block inside your NC file, anywhere
will do it. So in this example code, you are instructing
ProDNC to save the file away as 1000. All you need
to do is just OUTPUT this file out of your CNCs
RS232 and it will get stored away automatically.
N10 X1000 Y1000
N20 (/PUT 1000)
Each CNC machine inside ProDNC has its own default
send and receive folders. However you can setup
to 10 different aliases to alternative folders and
file extensions, and the syntax is really easy.
Say you want to store the file "\\mainwin2000\c\prodnc_sax_comm-remote\1000.txt"
then all you would have to do is use this command.
The .1 aliases to the full UNC path, its dead easy
and very flexible.
The above is only a sample example, it does NOT
have to be /PUT, it could be just PUT, or P, or
CAT or N2, it does not matter as long as both the
CNC program and the commands are the same, it is
extremely flexible in its formatting capabilities.
