General Mach Discussion / Re: Need Help Connecting USB CNC Board to Mach3
« on: December 05, 2020, 06:06:27 PM »
Also, what exactly do I need for my CNC machine anyway? I'm pretty sure I need a USB Interface Board but I also need a Breakout Board for the motors right? I need to make sure I know what I need before I order any more useless parts.

Hey, I only paid $150 for my CNC machine and I hate to buy a board that costs more than the machine itself. Can you suggest a cheap board that will work with Windows 10?

My computer is running Windows 10 and my computer does have a parallel port in the back. Also, what do you mean stepper drivers? Is that what I need to make the stepper motors work? Can you suggest a board that has everything that I need that works with Mach3 and is the least expensive?

Hey again, It's been awhile but I just bought this USB board from eBay and I'm wondering, it doesn't have the same port like the other board did, so I'm unsure how to connect it to this board. The plug that went into this port was for the spindle motor. (The port I'm talking about and the plug that goes in the port are the first two images below and the third image is the new board I bought.) If it's possible to cut the wire and wire it to the board maybe you could show me how?

Thanks,
- Kai

Sorry to take more of your time, but could you link the equipment you suggested?

Thanks,

Thanks! That would explain why everything I've tried has not worked lol. I have a question, should I upgrade to Mach4, and if so, what board should I buy that will run my CNC as well?

I don't know if this is the right discussion to be posting this on but I need serious help connecting my USB board to Mach3. Here's some information about my machine: My machine is a 3018 3 Axis DIY CNC Machine (not the pro) and it comes with a USB board that also controls the motors like the x, y, z, and the spindle motors.
HERE'S THE PROBLEM: I watched the first video on the Artsoft Video tutorials and it said to find out the right ports and pins to assign to the machine comes with the Machine when you bought it. AND THAT'S THE PROBLEM. My machine is DIY and it happens to come from China so there is no instruction guide on how to hook it up to Mach3 whatsoever.
PLEASE HELP in anyway you can.
