General Mach Discussion / LPT settings
« on: February 18, 2013, 05:37:05 PM »
I am a new user, building CNC router from scratch. My table and gantry system coming along quite well. I have a 5 axis board with steppers and drivers. The driver board calls for pinouts 2-7. However, Mach3 configuration does not allow these motor pinouts. I am running this from a Toshiba laptop. Is it possible to reconfigure system to LPT2 to satisfy this requirement or will this require gong to desktop with second printer port add-on? I do get green lights on axis driver boards when jogging, bot no motor activity. I get random motor activity on system boot-up that goes away when I load Mach3. Thanks, Tim
