General Mach Discussion / Re: z axis moving up
« on: June 03, 2012, 10:00:06 PM »
I'm new to the site and to CNC. I am using Mach 3 demo just getting my machine to run so I can start learning. I have a question that kind of relates to this topic. I need to know how to changes the Z movement + -. Just got the machine running this afternoon for the first time and the Z axis moves down when I jog Z+. The roadrunner demo Gcode has the Z set up just the opposite so when it starts the code the bit comes up when it should be going down. Do I have to changes all the Gcode lines for Z or is there a + - reversal somewhere. I can't find it.

General Mach Discussion / download and install MACH 3

I have tried to download and run Mach 3. Every time I try to RUN, it gets halfway thru and everything goes black and the computer locks up. I'm using a DELL Optiplex GX620 desktop with Windows XP 32 bit. I have tried this on my laptop and everything downloads and runs as it should-except for running my CNC machine smoothly that's why I'm trying to put it on my desktop computer. What's going on?
