Hi,

What is the screen resolution you're using? It looks like it could be 4k. If so, in Window's display settings try changing it to something like 1920x1080 at 100% scaling and see how that looks.

Mach4 General Discussion / extra small font on Mach 4 screen Help please
« on: November 01, 2019, 03:59:58 PM »
I just uploaded Mach 4, and the screen has all the text at extremely small fonts.   See attached image.  Can anyone offer up a fix for this
please.

OK

I am new here and could sure use some help.    I have been using Mach 3 for 5 years on a CNCRPTs 48 96 pro machine.   great results.   as a point of reference, I am an artist, not and computer wizard... so setting this all up 5 years ago almost killed me.

Two weeks ago my laptop died.    resulted in complete loss of all loaded Mach 3 lic. info.  I did save all my 3D CNC folders but could not restart Mach 3.

Yesterday I paid for a new Mach 4 license from AVID so it was formatted for my machine.    got Mach 4 uploaded and configured, than entered into the licensing step.       Made a sad error there.   when they asked for my machines ID, I loaded in my laptops ID .  they sent me the license file to turn on the MACH 4 Hobby.    Sadly I found out at that moment that I should have found the PC ID for the Mach 4 apparently.    ( found this about 5 screens further on in the instructions)


So now I have a license file that is no good.    Can I simple open up that text file and add in the correct PC ID from Mach 4.   Or am I am I stuck waiting for Mach to answer my groveling emails to allow me to restart this long, painful process.


THe other question I have has to do with the screen view.    When I do open up mach 4 the headers are about a size .005 font.   I can not see them even with x 4 glasses on.       will this be corrected when the license is loaded in?      ARGGGHHH.

Thanks Hood.  I am going to set up a small foam core carve Saturday and play with this.

Hood, in my other machine, a Shark HD I set the Safe Z during the Tool path creation in Aspire.

So is that the same for Mach3?   if a set a Safe Z in Aspire, will Mach3 pick that up, or is there a place in the Mach 3 controls to program in a Safe Z?

I have sensors on the X and Y so have early stops set on those before the  unit runs in to a hard stop, but there are not sensors on the Z assemble to set up limits.... That would of course be different than setting the Safe Z .

thanks.

General Mach Discussion / Restarting mid way in a run
« on: April 06, 2015, 11:19:37 PM »
I had a 65245 line tool path to run on Saturday.   at 12341 lines the bit came loose.

So I reinstalled the tool, and reset Zero  is there a way in Mach to ask the controller to start from a specific line? in this case I wanted the machine to start carving at line 12000.

this is only my 3 rd  carving with Mach, seems  like a great system,  just not sure how to get trained on it.  Is there manuals or generic operating videos that could help??

thanks

Scott here.   30 months into the world of CNC.   Bought a small shark to use in my Gallery / wood carving shop to start.  Just added at CNCrouterparts 4896 pro series with Mach 3 controls...    This is a real step up , as the Shark controls are not generic... Easy to use but don't have the features the Mach does.    Doubt I will ever use all the features of Mach3.     Here is a quick newbie question for you Mach Wizaeds.     I'm current running a rough out tool path with 34589 lines,  35 minutes in at. Line 12322, the router bit comes loose.     In stopped it, refund Zero Z and started all over from path 1.    Is there a way to tell Mach to start from say Tool path 12000?    Thanks scott art
