General Mach Discussion / Encoders and brains
« on: April 20, 2010, 06:22:58 AM »
This is really an email to say just how awesome this software really is.  Over the past couple of years I have put together a CNC table for my Plasma, router, engraver, dremel, etc and everthing about Mach 3 has worked flawlessly.  Recently, I had some crashes because I was asking too much of my steppers, so I installed optical encoders on the motors, installed a second parrallel card, and hooked everything up just as recommended and it all worked just as advertised.  With one simple 3 line brain, the system stops if the steppers don't step.  Now I am playing with the custom screens so that they display the encoder DROs next to the motor DROs.  My only regret is that I don't have enough time to really get into everything that Mach 3 is capable of!  You guys rock.
