thats exactly what i was talking about doing, centering then turning off

im really not that mechanically inclined of a person, perhaps if i had the time but i remember for weeks i was researching machine building and im just not up for it,machines not going to be moving hardly at all off x and y anyways this machines just going to cut wax ring models

those are nice but i dont know how to install and them and all that
anyways looks like it is what i was affraid of

ill just make it go x n y 0 then turn it off, it doesnt gotta be within microns, its for milling wax so just gotta be in the center of stock and ill be happy

once i set my work in the middle of my vice or chuck, can i save that location
because the last time i used it i had to find the x and y each time i turned on mach, is there a way other than just once i find it move away say in x4. and y4. and just remeber and move that much once i turn it back on
same for tool zs

is there a way or must i find my work and tool zero each time i boot up mach

thanks in advance

The version I use  is 057 but others say 062 is also ok.
Regards tuning, it will all depend on the hardware but basically if they are rotary axes then instead of steps per mm or inch you will use steps per degree.


this site is different than last i checked here
where can i find that version you mentioned because all i seen on the site was 43

Hello back again i emailed and asked if the license i previously paid for would be good for 5 axis, they said it would
back when i set up my first 3 axis machine there was a specific version, not much older, but not the newest version of mach3 that would run without bug issues

does anyone know of a specific mach i should download for the chinese 5 axis engraver im buying

also can anyone give me advice on how you would go about tuning the 4th and 5th axis motors, cause ive got no clue

thanks in advance for any and all advice
