Can you post a sample code that does this? It sounds like some init condition, but you say a reset clears it.

Ron, I think your motors where just rated too high a voltage. I think if you had 2V motors, you would have gotten acceptable performance.

I bought the xylotex kit, with their motors, board and power supply. When I found them to slow I replace the board with geckos and raised the power supply voltage to about 48v. That worked well.

The simple fact is that voltage equates to speed with steppers, and the Xylotex board with its 24v useful limit is just slow. With the Gecko 251s available (they were not when I started the project) I see no reason to ever buy a Xylotex board.

I had a Compac PC-5 which I converted to Mach. I bought motors and a Xylotex board. With the Xylotex board the machine was slower than with its old steppers. I replaced the xylotex with  geckos and got acceptable performance.

I have since decided the machine was to small for my use and have sold it. Im looking aorund now for a bigger lathe for my next project

Not until. after Brian releases the new cutter comp. As soon as that is out, and stable, I will fix the wizards.

I do not know of one. There was a recent list of all the DROs posted, but its only a list with descriptive names, not useable variable names

I suggest you also print, or buy a copy of the printed, Install Manual The complete sequence of setting up a machine is detailed very well.

See the downloads tab at teh top of this page.

Yes a probe can be used to pickup accurate points. That was added recently so be sure you sue the latest version which is on this forum, not the one in the mach install

If you want it to appear as a turn  wizard then it goes into the c:\Mach3\TurnAddons\QuickThreads. It will then appear on the list of wizards shown by the menu item for wizards.

Can the camera plugin be modified so we can adjust the crosshairs to an adjustable center? As it is we must mke a mechanical adjustment to get eh camera exactly centered on the axis of the spindle. If the crosshair was adjustable we could do it in software and make a much more accurate adjustment.

thanks

There were a number of VB threading bugs fixed in more recent versions of Mach- up in the 3.020 and later. I suggest you upgrade to the latest Mach and I think this issue will be gone
