General Mach Discussion / Re: ABC's of YOOCNC 6040Z Setup

Hi mate,

Sorry to hear that, you are still having troubles but, 2 things you mentioned that will be important to mention...!

The very first one is that, when the controller is off, the motors should turn very easily, and as you said BUT, if the controller and mill are communication right, as soon as you turn the controller ON, the motors (all of them) should lock and you shouldn't be able to turn the knobs at all, in fact, you can hear the "knock" sound from the motors, when the controller is switched on.

As for the inability to get the axis to move from your computer keyboard, that was exactly what happened to me when, I tried to used my Toshiba laptop with Windows XP, this was what I intended to use with my CNC because I purchased a USB machine however, and after all attempts, I decide to try a old desktop computer I had also with windows XP, and as soon as I did that, the keyboard become alive when the Mach3 software is open on the computer screen, all axis started moving as they should.

I suggest that, you try to find another desktop computer with the old Windows XP installed and try to connect the controller to it.  It may be something not right with the desktop computer you are using now, you don't have anything to lose by trying another computer and see what happens.

ANd while talking of computer communication with the CNC controller, I just remembered that, you have to set the Mach3 software to the correct port of your computer and you have to make sure, that port is active.

It seems to me that, the controller and computer are not communicating and that,is all part of the "Ports and Pins" initial settings when the Mach3 software is downloaded into the computer shown on page 28 of the PDF file I sent you, the one that says "CNC-6040-Router-Engraver-System-Installation-Manual - Parallel"

There are also a number of YouTube clips made by the Mach3 team and they do explain well all the steps require, I don't recall with clip mentions this info but, you will be able to find it buy looking on this link, https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=mach3+cnc+control+software+tutorial

Good luck and Happy New Year..!
George

G'day,

I can't see what is in the images, they show far too small so, and because I may need to send you some PDF files, I would suggest that, you send me an email to, nyodine@yahoo.com.au

Cheers
George

Hi Sabre,

I recall to have had exactly the same experience and, I'm trying to remember what I did to make all axis move using the keyboard keys so, I may start but asking you, from whom did you get the machine from and what documents/files did they gave you to set the machine up...?

I do recall that, I did miss more than once to follow the correct instructions on how to download and install the software, the seller should have sent you a set of instructions on how to make the Match3 software under the manufacturer's licence, allowing you also to get all the settings on Match3 to be done automatically when the software is installed correctly.

Knowing the exact model and seller of your machine, the instruction manuals are slightly different but, in my search to learn what I had, I got all the various manuals printed so that I could see the differences, and I can tell you, there are a few.

Don't stress though, you will get it sorted, sooner or later...!
Cheers
George

Hi,

I have a question for you and I wonder if you can help me?

I have a 6040 CNC machine I have loaded Mach3 onto my computer and I have used these settings above. The issue in having is the stepper moater keys used on the program work on the computer but not on the table.

Could you please if possible send me screenshots of all the settings that you are using??

Thank you! =]


G'day,

I have also a 6040Z USB 1,500W spindle and only today I manage to get my first job done successfully, after 2 weeks of hell, all due to the CD with al programs and instructions wasn't in the box and everytime I was sent the files by email, they would get corrupted.

While I struggle still with so many issues related to understanding and operation the CNC correctly, I do recall to have seen a Youtube video made by the Mach3 people where, he talks about that very issue and how to resolve it, the answer is in the beginning of this clip https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e5bWH_ET3E4
Good luck
