General Mach Discussion / Re: Jog Y in minus and X motor moves
« on: June 06, 2006, 07:38:07 PM »
I changed the wires around to see if it reproduces the error on the other axis.  No luck and in fact 2 axis started to move.

After routing the wires differently I still had the problem.  So, I changed computers and all is good.  It performs perfect so far.  No missing steps and all is holding tight.  The one I was using had only 600 megahertz of speed to run at.  The newer one has 1.1 gig processor speed and the problem went away.  BTW, do you know if the software will run on the 64 bit computers.  I couldn't get the test driver to even work.  Just curios.  Thanks for all your help and suggestions.

Tried it but no luck.  I made sure no other wire was touching any other wire and tried it again.  Same results.

Thanks and if you can think of anything please let me know.  Wierd, because it's only Y- that gives the noise to x to make it step.

That add's an equation to things don't it.  Make sure all the offsets are correct. ;)  It's just that there has been times that I couldn't hardly get to the button in times as it is and I've been working in job shops for ever.  No answer to this problem with windows and is this a common problem on other controls running through windows?  This is why I was hoping the single step worked a little better.  It could at least be a prodictable way of telling where it's going to stop. :)

Thanks much for the help,

General Mach Discussion / Jog Y in minus and X motor moves
« on: June 04, 2006, 03:52:54 PM »
I set up Mach3 on a Taig.  Everything seems OK but one thing.  I noticed that while doing tests that the X motor will ever so slowly move a click or two or three while rapiding in Y minus.  I tired slowing down the motor down.  I put it in MDI and feed it slowly with the same results.  Then I ran a program and it did the same thing and x position was lost.  It's around .004 thousands in every 5 inches of travel in the y minus only.  So if I was to program that was a circle it would turn into a slot after 50 passes.  Or I get taper milling in Y- but the + is perfect.  All motors hold rock solid except that one.  Any hints!

Thanks for the help,

P. S. When the x motor clicks while y is moving it doesn't show anything different on the readouts.

General Mach Discussion / Slow response to cycle stop
« on: June 04, 2006, 03:37:16 PM »
I'm using Mach3 and have a question.  Is it typical for the machine to halt a secound or two after the space bar is pressed or the cycle stop button clicked on with the mouse.  Both seem to act exactly the same.  This happens every time.  In other words if I really wanted to stop last secound it might be to late as it keeps feeding some after the switch is activated.  Any idea?

Thanks

General Mach Discussion / Re: single block
« on: June 04, 2006, 03:21:18 PM »
I had a similar problem last night.  Running in program and single blocked program on a contour.  Finished contour then stopped.  Then I hit cycle start and it decide to do a loop first then take off scraping a 5 hour run part.  Very bummed.

Any information about that.
