Title: Mach4 Transition Worksheet
Post by: bryannab on April 23, 2018, 10:27:54 AM
Whether you're an established Mach3 user or you're just starting out and all of your machine instructions are for Mach3, it can be scary to make the switch to a new controller. The worksheet attached is meant to ease the transition from Mach3 to Mach4 by helping you collect and organize your settings. Fill it out with with the settings you use in Mach3 and you will be able to use it as a reference when you make your profile in Mach4. It is meant to be used alongside the setup guide for your motion controller--as that will dictate which settings are configured in their plugin and which are configured in Mach4--and with the Mach4 configuration manual. It is written with the language and terminology used in Mach4 so you will know what you are looking for when you start applying your settings.

The worksheet should open in both Excel and Open Office. The first page is an introduction and the Worksheet tab on the bottom is where you'll actually fill out your settings.  Please PM me or submit a ticket at with any questions or for more information.

Happy CNCing!

The spreadsheet remains a good tool to have, but we are also implementing an XML wizard in the upcoming build of Mach4. With it, you can load an XML and access all of your important settings from within Mach4. Note: it will not set up a Mach4 profile for you, you still have to configure a profile using the information gathered in the XML wizard.
