Mach4 General Discussion / Cannot clear the e-stop
« on: November 29, 2017, 01:46:15 PM »
Wondering if anyone has had an issue with the E-Stop (Enable button) not clearing.  I just installed the newest version of Mach4 (V2) and cannot seem to get past this issue.  Everything was working correctly until I installed the newest build 3481.

If anyone has had this issue please let me know.


Thanks,

Daryl

Mach4 General Discussion / Trying to tune my motors
« on: March 27, 2016, 02:39:36 PM »
I just recently purchased Mach4, been using Mach3 for 10 years. I am using the PMDX-411 Plugin, which seems to be working quite well.  I am getting closer to the correct acceleration and steps, but I miss the function that was in Mach3 which would help you set the exact distance a motor travels by compensating internally for you when you ran their set Axis distance control.  Is there something in Mach4 to help do this?

Thanks,

Mach4 General Discussion / Windows 10 and Mach4
« on: February 16, 2016, 11:59:03 AM »
I have noticed many people getting Mach4 working with Windows 10 Pro. I am trying to use the Darwin Plugin, but no matter what operating system I use, it will not install correctly.  Always stating the C++ 2008 drivers are out of date.  I have tried Windows 7 32 bit, 64 bit and now on Windows 10 Pro.  I am using Run as administrator on every installer I use and I always get the same error.  I really do not want to go back to Windows XP.  I am looking into the PMDX-411 USB to Parallel adapter, but not sure it would work with my controller.  Since the instructions for all of these products never mention operating systems, I am looking to the forum for help.

Thanks,

Daryl

I have been using Mach3 for over 7 years now on a very old XP computer.  My Motion control system is a servo based with Gecko drivers. I really need to replace the computer and would like to move to Mach4 with its new Darwin plug in for parallel port systems.  Unfortunately all of the USB to Parallel products I find talk only about stepper motors. I am looking at the PMDX-411 from PMDX, a suggestion of ArtSoft. 
Has anyone used this product or any product with a servo system?

Thanks,

Daryl

General Mach Discussion / Reversing Servo Direction

Could someone explain to me how to reverse the direction of the servo motor in Mach3.  The X and Y are moving the wrong direction
