Hi guys

just got a camera from Arnie - no drivers with this just using the one in windows xp the camera worked no problems, but  in mach when I select the video screen the camera gets warm the screen is not good pixelated and then locks up.  I tried centrecam using the same drivers and the same camera! which runs cooler in this software,  and does not freeze up.   So I assume its something within mach, I am running version R3.042.040.
now if i download the latest mach (lockdown version) and just install it over my current configuration will that be fine or do I have to uninstall my current mach setup (Hurr not what id look forward to) I have found another plug in from Karl http://www.kd-dietz.com/klausphp/index_eng.html# but don't want to just install a load of stuff if the main cause is elsewhere..


General Mach Discussion / 4th axis problem
« on: July 05, 2011, 02:05:15 PM »

I have set up my 4th axis mechanically and all seems well BUT I have output gcode from a cad / cam system profiling the shape of a propeller cone. in the z axis there is one profile and all the rest are on top of this profile there is no 3d view I have ran it off line and the A axis is rotating but the 3d profile is not there. I have rebuilt my systems over the last year and the last time I out put this code it worked. Is there a setting in mach I should be aware of.. Any help appreciated.
