General Mach Discussion / Updated Version. DRO'S move Motors Don't
« on: February 10, 2015, 08:29:56 AM »
My machine was running fine with release 3.042.020, I updated to 3.043.057. Now my DRO's show movement, but my stepper motors don't jog.
I executed the update and loaded it in the same folder as the previous release so all my .xml files are available and can be loaded.
Are there other setting that aren't in the .xml file?
Attached is an .xml file that used to work on the last revision that I had.
Thanks.

General Mach Discussion / Multiple Tools of Different Heights
« on: March 01, 2011, 12:24:54 PM »
Sorry if this is an old question. I either don't know how to search properly or ask a question properly.
I haven't played with tool offset yet, but am I correct in my thinking:
If I have Tool 1 (T1) as a 1.0 inch long center drill and zero it out on my work piece and then want to drill with a Tool 2 (T2) a 2 inch long drill do I input a +1.0 inch offset in the offset table?
If this is correct or even close, my follow up question is how do I calibrate the T2 change to be exactly 1.0 inch longer than the zeroed out T1 tool since I am using the same chuck and removing the center drill and then installing the drill bit? Do I somehow zero it out on the part again?
Thanks in advance.

Thanks.

General Mach Discussion / Problem Testing motors off machine.
« on: March 24, 2009, 07:40:20 PM »
I am running Mach3 with a Xylotex 3-axis, 425 oz.in. motor system on the bench, no load.
I can use the arrow keys or mouse over the direction buttons on the screen and the motors turn.
If I repeatedly jog  the motors activating the same direction button the Y and z axis motors will intermittantly revers direction.
I can't find a pattern on when and how often the motors will reverse direction while pushing the same direction button.
Does anyone have any ideas. It would be much apreciated.
Thanks.
Rick
