General Mach Discussion / Jogging doesn't show tool tip in Turn!?
« on: October 20, 2008, 09:26:49 PM »
Hey guys, not sure if I'm doing something wrong, but I can't see the tool tip in Turn.  When I run a program I get a nice green line showing the tip location, but while manually jogging I get no verification on the screen.  Is there a setting I need to change for this?  BTW I'm using a smoothstepper with the Mach3 dev version R3.041.  Anywho, other than that I'm blazing parts out left and right, woohoo :)

SmoothStepper USB / Need some help with S&D lathe spindle...
« on: September 30, 2008, 11:26:38 PM »
Ok, where to start.  I'm running a servo spindle on my lathe.  The spindle runs fine if I set it to an axis, but when in spindle mode only the direction LED lights up.  I don't get any step pulses.  Also, for some reason in the motor tuning box, I can't change the steps/unit for the spindle (other axis are fine).  It's stuck at "10" which is causing me problems since I have about 40,000 steps per revolution.  This is the last big hangup on this lathe before I can start making some wonderful blue chips, anyone have any ideas??
