Using DNC Server with Inplot
Inplot is an optional software for editing and plotting CNC programs. There are several features you can use if you have both. If Inplot (ver 1.5 and higher) and DNC Server (ver 2.8 and higher) are properly installed, you can use the following features .
Load From Inplot
This will load the text that is in the Inplot editor window into the DNC Server window.
Send To Inplot
This will send the text that is in the DNC Server window to the Inplot editor window .
DNC From Inplot
DNC Server can have Inplot send it's output to the serial port. Since Inplot has support for plotting subprograms, using variables, and special functions, you could use all these while sending the program out the serial port. Even modify each line of text with a script before outputting it.
When you press this it will read through the program in the Inplot editor starting at the line the cursor is on, so if you want to start at the beginning of the program make sure you press the Reset button in Inplot to bring the cursor to the top. All the Inplot configuration settings such as syntax checking and subprograms will still be active.
When you are using Inplot you can start up DNCServer right from the Main Menu. Go to File - DNC, and if DNC Server is installed it will start up and automatically load the text that is in the edit window into DNC Server. Then you are ready to send.
Inplot Plug-In Menu:
It is also possible to put DNC Server on the plug-in menu. This will allow you to add parameters to the startup. DNC Server will appear on the Inplot Plug-In menu if you make an entry in the Plug-In Install dialog with the path/filename to DNCServer. A Parameter of 9 will automatically load in the text that is currently in the Inplot editor, ready for you to send it.
