General Mach Discussion / Re: How to add a 3d printer to cnc machine?
« on: March 16, 2018, 02:08:45 PM »
Thanks MadDogSTrack, I have a digital PID temp controller that holds the temp fairly steady on the hotend.

I've got a single axis driver that I have wired up with the 1k Ohm resistor for the 5th axis 3d printhead motor. It is getting power. I'm just unsure of how to set ports and pins so that Mach3 recognizes it.

How do I config this window?


Do I need to change anything with the Input Signals and Output Signals windows?

Thanks, so looks like I need to order a breakout board and a dual PP card....I'll give this a shot unless there is a better one for Mach3  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00006B8C6/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=ASF0S1GFIHF5V&psc=1

Thanks, forgot to add my Y axis is controlled with 2 motors, so Y axis is the 3rd axis and A axis being the 4th. I'd like to have 3d printhead be on the B axis in Mach3.

I've got my 5th axis printhead wired up per the diagram on pg. 20 here:


Here is the pin out diagram for the DB25 on pg. 21:


How do I config Mach3 to control the 5th axis printhead on the B-axis with the above info?

I'm trying to convert my 4x8 cnc machine to a 3d printer setup. My machine uses a Leadshine MX4660 driver(http://www.leadshine.com/UploadFile/Down/MX4660hm_V1.1.pdf) that is capable of controlling a 5th axis. I'll be using it with this hotend combo(https://www.filastruder.com/collections/titan-aero/products/e3d-titan-extruder-aero).

My issue is that I don't know what pins the hotend motor is being controlled with on the DB25 cable. How do I configure this so that Mach3 can see it? Thanks

Mach3 not going to speed I set in Cam program. I set it for 600ipm and it is only going 335.

General Mach Discussion / Is there a planing wizard out there?

Could use a plane wizard that would allow me to enter the size of my stock and the finished size I need, anything like that out there?

Thanks, this is a really nice addition to mach3, speeds up so many things for me, kudos.

I don't have a limiting switch for my z axis. The manual says to edit a script file to make the autozero toolchange work, do you have anymore info on that, thanks.
