Mach3 and G-Rex / Arrow key worked now they don't
« on: February 14, 2011, 08:08:14 PM »
Hello all,

I'm very new to the CNC world so for give my ignorance. I set Mach 3 up as the tutorials show. I loaded my first "G" Code and turned the Plasma on and made a part. After doing this the Arrow keys no longer work to jog the X and Y axis I can use the MPD buttons to move the axis but not the arrow keys. Any Ideas what the heck I screwed up. One other issue I am having is that Mach3 seems to forget the soft limits and over run. Could some of this be my motor drivers.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

I've built a plasma table with a Probotics 3 Axis kit and I've downloaded the Demo version to try just to see if it is going to work. One of the problems that I'm having is with it communicating with the Driver board and Mach. I was told by Probotics that I need to change the Parallel port setting. Is this true? Or is there some way to set up Mach to work with this. I can't believe that I would have to change the printer port settings to get this to work.

Please help I just want to see it run.

Thanks in advance
Lance
