I'm in need of some macro information. Anybody have any good websites or books or other information pertaining to them?
I'm wanting to create a program to check flatness on a large disc I run in the lathe. I want the probe to touch the face, spin the disc X number of degrees, and repeat this process Y times. Then I want to take all the values from the steps and subtract the lowest value from the highest value. Then if this difference is greater than a preset number, an error flashes. If the difference is smaller, then the program finishes on out and everything is ok.
Yes I know using a mag base indicator and spinning the disc would be cheaper and maybe easier. But let's go with the program idea.
