General Mach Discussion / How do I tell Mach3 my CNC's table size?
« on: February 07, 2009, 08:56:23 PM »

I have built my own CNC machine, and got it talking to mach3 ok. Now I need to figure out how to tell mach3 how big my cnc's table size is, and where 0,0 is?

I can import a file, but when I start the cycle the cnc is starting in a position where it will eventually hit the end stops during the cut.

Do I need to set limits or machine coords? Also I am exporting files from CorelDraw, so would that have an impact on the file exported. Probably a dumb question, but if I set the cnc table size in Corel, will mach 3 then use that as it's reference?


BTW here is the machine, as you can probably see, it's first output was the standard "Hello World". The LCD is a touch screen, and the controller boards are from http://www.routoutcnc.com/
