General Mach Discussion / HELP NEEDED URGENT
« on: January 15, 2013, 07:46:27 AM »
I have bought and assembled a driver unit with onboard regulated power supply for Nema 24 motors.

System4c unit info :


I have it all wired up and assembled, it should be plug in and play.
My mach3 is working fine and I am able to jog.

My issue is that when I want to test the jog on my motors, i plug my system into the PC using the PC port.
Change my motor output pins as suggested in the unit manual but NOTHING is happening. The DRO's still change but my motors are silent and still.

I'm really at a loss as to what the problem is. PLEASE HELP.

See my mach3 settings here

What am I doing wrong?

General Mach Discussion / Urgent help needed. Setting up MACH 3
« on: January 14, 2013, 09:15:22 AM »

I am setting up a CNC machinefor my workplace. It has run using mach3 before but is now using a new drive system and PC.
I am a complete newbie to CNC and require help setting up.

The machine I am using is :


And the system with which I hope to drive my CNC with is the System4C from DIYCNC.COM. Which I have assembled but currently have not plugged in as I just wish to test Mach3 first.

I have downloaded the trial version of MACH and at this stage would like to test that my motors will turn.
My CNC machine is not plugged in yet, I wanted to test MACH 3 first but am unable to use my keyboard arrow keys to jog or change the values in the xyz axis

Where lies my problem?

Any advice
