General Mach Discussion / Using a Flashcut CNC Box in Mach 3
« on: March 07, 2010, 08:18:37 PM »
Hello, I am very new to CNC machining and I am trying to get a mill with a flashcut CNC conversion to work under mach 3, as the flashcut box does not support the new live version of the flashcut software. So far I have been unable to make the machine jog using Mach 3. I read somewhere that there is a trick or two that is needed to  get mach3 to run on the flashcut box.
So far I have set up the ports an pins in exactly the same manner as the tutorial, although I believe that since the flashcut box is proprietary they do not use the basic pin 1 step y pin 2 dir y setup.

My setup for running mach3 is an LPT cable (not a crossover) directly connected to the flashcut box that runs the motors, and so far I haven't gotten any stepper motors to move.
