General Mach Discussion / Re: Code will not run
« on: July 21, 2011, 11:50:20 AM »
It runs to line N01 and stops. It will not run from there. There is a message next to the clear button that reads " Feature Center Drill ". The only thing that I have noticed is that my spindle speed is set to 25000 RPM's and I cannot change it.

Thanks,

It was either CNCZONE or Practical Machinist. Both are very good and I visit them every day.

Hi,

    It would not load the screen set. I finally went to view, load screens and chose the screen set for my mill PCNC 1100 and it loaded. It has been loading fine ever since. I got the tip on how to do this on another forum.

Thanks,

General Mach Discussion / Code will not run
« on: July 21, 2011, 11:14:42 AM »


Hi,

   I have generated the following code in Bobcad v23 and it will not run in Mach3 offline. I want to run offline to see the results before going to the machine. Could someone take a look and see what would be the cause of the code not running?

Thanks,

          Ernie

General Mach Discussion / Blank screen
« on: July 21, 2011, 12:29:41 AM »
Hi,

     I have a Tormach PCNC 1100 running on Mach3. I have a computer in the house that has Mach3 loaded on it. I use the house computer to prerun the programs and if I like them I put them on USB stick and take them out to the garage and do the machining.

     I just tried to do this tonight and when i loaded the Mach3 I got a blank screen. Anybody have an idea what might be wrong?

Thanks,

          Ernie

General Mach Discussion / Shuttle_RU
« on: May 25, 2011, 12:57:10 PM »
Hi,

   Just received a Shuttle_RU from Andrey. I am not too computer literate and need some help. By the way this is a great looking unit. I am running a Tormach PCNC1100 mill with Mach3. I loaded the Shuttle_RU into the Mach3 plugin file and when I go to config in Mach3 I do not find the file.

  I am sure that I am doing something wrong or not doing something that I should be doing. If anyone could pass on a step by step procedure I would appreciate it.

Thanks,

          Ernie

General Mach Discussion / Bridgeport EZTRAK SX
« on: June 30, 2010, 11:46:19 AM »
Has anyone converted a Bridgeport EZTRAK SX to Mach3? Have you also powered the machine with a VFD? I have such a machine and would like to get it going. Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Hi,

  I get the above message and I am not sure what it means. My first line is ( :01933 )

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks,
