General Mach Discussion / Re: General help wanted

I was lucky after many months of looking for hands on help. Now I just bought the Mach 3 license but the installation is not showing up under HELP

General Mach Discussion / General help wanted
« on: April 18, 2014, 12:50:51 PM »
I am a 80 year young man who had made a few items on a Carvewright machine without a problem, but I needed better quality projects with both wood and metal.  2 years ago I built a CNC machine that will be able to do plasma or router wood cutting. The problem is after I completed the build I had 3 stents installed in my heart and several strokes that did some harm to my memory. While the machine is built and running, I need some one too help me with hands on instructions. The machine is 40"x 42" outside frame with a working area of 25"x 27" with a G540 controller and 4 stepper motors and a 48V power supply pre wired.   I am located in Monroe NY 10950 and can email me for pictures or any information. 1american@optonline.net

thank you for your concern and advise. I will send you pictures of where i am at this point. The G540 has 4 inputs, 3 are taken with NC limit switches and the last in put is being used to set the Zero which is NO until the bit touches the copper coin and sets my only open number which is 12. I'll send pictures to make things clearer.Eli

I notice that when I watch other videos zero in, when the grounded bit touches the positive plate, the bit stops and rises 1 inch and stops again.
On my diagnostics (Alt 7) section, one of the center top of port 1 pins remains lit until i lower the the grounded bit to the positive plate then the light goes out but router keeps going down until the limit switch is activated. Prior to testing the zeroing, the probe was automated set to 1-13 the only free space with out a problem. Any help will be  appreciated. Eli

I'm at a point where I need one on one help. Anyone near Monroe NY who is willing to give up some hands on time for a reasonable fee, please email Eli at 1american@optonline.net and I will explain what I have and what I'm looking for. I built a plasma/router machine over 2 years ago and I have yet to cut anything. Thank you.

Can anyone tell me why when I start the roadrunner or any other program, the first thing that happens, is that the router bit rises 1/8"  Eli

General Mach Discussion / Re: Mach3 and Gecko540

I bought a package, G540 motors and all just because i did not want what you went through. But with all that I find that both Mach and Gec0drive have a limited amount of manuals to help people like you and me. I had a Carve wright before and it came with hundred of pages of information that made it easy to locate an answer fro just about anything. I was not happy with the quality of the finished product and sold it. Now i feel inferior when I read all the knowledge many of the answers I read Eli

Hi Bush flyer. I have used that video before, that's where I kept getting "Not yet Implemented". I made some changes with the wiring to the limit switches and i got rid of the Not yet Implemented and now I get 4 lines of DoButton(24)  Now on the ststus bottom I get "error on line 1 "Argument Not optional."
                                                                         "          "  (23)
                                                                         "             (22)
                                                                         "             (25)
                                                                 DoOEMButton (133)
                                                      "                               (134)
                                                                                      (135) 
I'm not sure if I have a G540 problem or a Mach 3 problem. I bought a plug and play kiit thinking I would not have a problem with wires all over. The only wires I had to make was with the limit switches, which work fine.   Eli
