Newfangled Mill Wizard / Mill Wizard install problem
« on: November 30, 2014, 11:37:04 AM »
Installed Mill Wizard and when i try to run the program (C:\program files\NFS_mill\NFS_mill.exe) I get the error ""This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect"
So I tried the suggestion as presented by the error window was to re-install the program but that didn't fix it.
I have installed this program on an WinXP machine 32 bit.
Any ideas as to why this program won't run? Doesn't run on XP?
Thanks,
Bruce

General Mach Discussion / Z axis issue
« on: March 12, 2011, 08:41:13 PM »
I finished my PCB mill today and while testing the mill on a simple pcb generated with EagleCad and using pcb-gcode
I ran into a Z axis problem.
Watching the gcode run the Z axis is commanded to go up .100 (Z0.100) from zero set point..it goes down and when commanded
to go down .007 (Z-0.007) it goes up from the zero set point.
Ok..so using the jog feature I could see that Z+ it went down and Z- it went up so in the configure window I changed the direction
and retested with the jog feature..this time Z+ it went up and Z- it went down..all fixed, not really it did the same when running
the gcode.
I guess my question is since I am using the demo version only is this something that will work correctly when i purchase a license?
Or is there something I have overlooked in setting up the Z axis? The X and Y axis are working ok..
Thanks,
Bruce

FAQs / RESET- E-stop & Limit switch's issue
« on: January 12, 2011, 06:16:01 PM »
Hello to the Forum..
I am using a HobbyCNC driver and a X Y Z setup I built a long time ago and just got it all rewired and setup to test.

I have configured Mach3 port# and pin#'s for the motors and limit switch's  ok..yet I am having a problem
with Mach 3 recognizing that the E-stop switch and limit switch's are ok..

RESET keeps going active almost at random saying E-stop or limit switch's are active but using the diagnostic
screen I see the limits light glow yellow when I push an X or Y limit switch and the E-stop light will glow
red when I push the E-stop switch ( E-stop pin set for active low).
Measuring the pull-up voltage at the connector for the driver pcb I am measuring 4.43V(5V comes from the driver and measures 5.03V)..that should be high enough to
prevent false triggering.
So I am at a loss as to what else needs to be done..I would like to test out mach3 before purchasing but the way things are
working I may never get to that..so is this resetting issue a way to prevent full operation of this program until purchase?
Just curious about that..
Any ideas out there?
Thanks,
Bruce
