Automating tasks in Openbuild and IPEVO Visualizer - (Moved)

Recommended Posts


I have a fair amount of experience automating tasks in Autoit, my current project at NVIDIA is to make a flying probe and Automated inspection

tool using a Openbuilds.com GRBL controller and a IPEVO Camera with their Visualizer software.

The problem I am seeing is, that neither of those objects present info I can use from AU3Info or Spy.

It seems like Openbuilds uses some Chrome DLL and I have spent a couple days trying to get info or find a replacement SW to use.

The objective is to make an X,Y table go to a location under my control, Take a picture of a component, lower the Z-Axis prober, and make a measurement. 

with a GPIB device, lift the prober and repeat. I don't want to use GCode for the task, just automate manual controls, but I want to work around

all the setup it would take to design my own app. 

Can anyone offer some ideas about how I can find out the Hooks I need to automate this SW? 


Like I said, I have quite a bit of experience, from working at Transmeta automating Benchmarks at Transmeta, like 10 years and more ago,

but it seems like Hooking and Subclassing are different now than in those good old days. I just need to figure out what I should be looking at.
