General Mach Discussion / Re: where is my calibration.....
« on: September 29, 2007, 10:51:54 AM »
I downloaded the older version 1.84 and installed it into a diff directory. The button works in that version so I used to get my numbers and then pasted those into the new version.    :D

Art can you fix this in the latest release please.   :-*

I think what you are looking for is on the (Settings Tab) screen.
Right above the Reset Button on this screen you'll find (AXIS CALIBRATION - STEPS PER UNIT).
That will guide you.


Thank you for the  prompt reply. I found that button and it is what I am looking for only it did nothing when I clicked it :( Do you know of a fix or how to get to the code another way?

I think I had an older rev but I thought I remembered that there was a spot in motor tuning where I was able to type in go 2inches then measure how far my machine really went and it would figure out how many steps it takes to get there. This would be a great addin if it is no longer available.

Please help

To run a 4 axis machine what is the minimum PC requirements. I will have XP installed but is 256mb ram enough is a P3 900mhz enough? I would be only running Mach3 nothing else on this machine.


Guess I should have posted by now but yes I am too bitten by the DIY CNC bug and I am nearly done! I will also be working on some nice flash screens for new users or people who want a good 3D look at things! watch for the thread it will show up soon!


Very nice so I need to ask will this work on my 4th axis that is a lathe?

IS this mean strictly for a lathe machine?

Very nice regardless!

Every time someone wants to post a "which is better MS or ?" or what do you think about MS this or that program. We all get into this heavy offense and defense of the windows product line. I will go back and get my printed pages of all of you bashing the ********* out of windows XP and rub it in your collective faces. I will get every paper about why the current flavor of Linux is better than the last flavor and why its better than windows.

If your a true low level coding expert I would say a few things you have not thought of. 1. Who is it exactly that you call when your free Ubuntu is crashing and you cannot get your 4 applications (not many more ever made) to work? 2. Which of you will stand up and tell me the name of the company they work at or have been to that has gone 75% or more to Linux? even in the server side?

Linux lovers why dont you run a real linux and install MAC/OS? oh wait cause it too is bloatware. Now here is the funny thing about bloatware. Your grandmom can use it with little difficulty at the moment it turns on. You think grandma and grandpa are going to flip on the KDE shell and ge to working? Also I program in 11 languages for everything from Windows and Linux/MAC OS to the web. Know which platform has the best tools for this?  Yep its not Linux or Mac. ITS WINDOWS the relavance of the version your on is stupid. You based win2k then you bashed WinXP now you bash Vista but you too will run it and you to will Bash Windows ??  operating system in the future once you see or hear of it the first time.

Get off your soap box get back to work or get a job whatever applies and use what O/S you want. But dont think for a minute that I cant hack your linux box or that your machine is faster to get your productivity done cause your wrong.

just my 2 O/S'es worth!

You make mention that if someone gets it right you will stop us all and tell us then. If this fails to happen then on the 29th you will pick the closest person. Now during all that you make mention that it is one entry per person but we are allowed to come back and edit our entries right?

Here is the 64chip question.... How often are you looking at all the answers and recording who picked what number? is this done hourly/daily/weekly/once per leapfrog year?

I need answers the counting is making my braing turn into something like green mint jelly!

No rush. Have a safe and enjoyable trip. Where you can use electric cars, bicycles, skateboards, pogo sticks, and dog sleds, and that will help me put an extra poke in the oil-company eye!
