General Mach Discussion / Homing issue.
« on: August 08, 2013, 02:39:12 PM »
     I am having problems trying to home two of the three axis on my cnc. The y axis will home itself, touching the switch and backing off until it releases the switch. The issue is that x and z automatically zero after the y axis home is touched. I am using three seperare homing switches that are not connected in any way. Any ideas of what is causing this?

Thank you,

All the axis move correctly on the Mach 3 screen and cooresponds to the table movements but the final product is upside down from the Mach 3 picture.


General Mach Discussion / Mirrored image issue

     I am having issues with milling using Mach 3. I load a CAD file with an image that is normal and upright. When I actually cut the image out, it is upside down (a mirrored image of the origional picture).  If I was to pocket the part, it would pocket the bottom side instead of the top. Any ideas of why this is happening?

Thank You,

FAQs / E-STOP - Help
« on: August 02, 2013, 10:30:30 AM »
Can anyone tell me why when I configure an external E-Stop for my machine I get 4 " Port 1 Pins Current State " leds to light up?  When I toggle the E-Stop switch the number 4 led goes on and off but the first 3 leds always remain on. I have no other inputs to mach 3 at this time.

FAQs / Limit Switch Set up
« on: August 01, 2013, 08:33:45 PM »
I am new to cnc and I am trying to set up my first machine. The problem I am having is with the homing and limit switches. I can set the homing switches for X,Y,and Z and they show up and activate on the diagnostics screen, and I am able to reset the reset button. The issue is when i activate any of X++,X--,Y++,Y--,Z++,or Z-- limit switches I get the error " limit switch triggered", but do not see any activation on the diagnostics screen and I cannot reset the reset button. I am running my switches in series, which if I read the manual correctly is acceptable. I have tried active high and active low. All switches are on the same input pin,( in series ). I have tried pushing the homing switches during the homing operation but it does nothing. What am I doing wrong? I am at a loss. Any help would be greatly appriciated.
Thank You,
