« on: February 14, 2017, 11:56:26 AM »
Hi all
    im sure iv had this before but can not remember what the answer is.
 i have copied a profile (as i wanted to up the z axis speed)
  but when i then run that profile none of the homing buttons work
   everything else seems to be fine  the axis's move limit switches all ok  all the settings seem to have copied but   unable to home !!!!
      Please tell me what iv forgotten to do to make this work.

General Mach Discussion / Problem with "RUN FROM HERE"
« on: September 22, 2015, 11:47:05 AM »
Hi All
   i have a problem..
  Mach3 will not "RUN FROM HERE" at any line number over approx 160000.  it works fine with anything up to this but after it locks out the RESET button around line162000.
  As i have started to do some large 3D pieces with Aspire. this can be very frustrating when something goes wrong or a power blip knocks out the PC as the models i am cutting have 1million+ lines of code.
    the latest (still on the machine bed hoping for a solution) was 97% complete or 5 1/2 hours of cutting when the power went off at around line 902000 !!!
 does anyone know a solution to this ?
   cheers

Pc
 3ghz Pentium 4 with 2 gig ram
win XP service pack 2  (clean install with nothing but Mach3)
no network installed
 iv attached some files

Hi everybody
      i have had my MDF special up and running now for about 6 months and have had great fun learning cnc routing and had some successful 2 and 2.5 D projects.
this weekend my machine crashed duing a run............
reset and ran again............crashed
  i then found that when moving the carrage with the keyboard arrow keys all was fine until all 3 axis were moved simultaneously  then bam..... pc crashed.
everything is fine when rapid moves are made on 1 or 2 axis
   but as soon as all three axis moves are made it always crashes the pc
       im hoping someone out there has had this problem and can help
                                   thanks
                                       Dave
