@Sebastius Here is the file, thanks for the offer I will indeed take you up on it. I have also sent you an email with some more info.
I love the machine behaviour idea. However the only problem is with smoothie ware, The pause function it will wait till the end of the current buffer meaning you could be waiting a few seconds or a few minutes for the job to pause. (A way around this is for smoothie to have smaller line segments with vector pathing, this means the que will empty faster.)
The kill command/button is the only command which will interrupt ahead of the buffer and halt all operations, the downside to this is as we are using steppers position is lost, in addition the current buffer is lost so if the job was to restart not only would you be slightly off in position you would also be missing a segment of your job.
@Juerd The Interlock board was designed to provide a high signal when an alarm was triggered I had planned to use a pin on the smoothie and set it as the Kill switch as open drain, but it did not work.
The only way i managed to get it to work as indented was the current set up you see; using a transistor and using the high from the interlock board to close the kill button circuit. Feel free to try 0.23^ let me know what happens
