So, went and got a newer computer, but it did not have the parallel ports I needed on back, so go a card installed it.  Problem is its not sending the information to the Candcnc THC and wont move the head.  Works on the screen but wont move the unit itself.  Can someone help me.  IS there some settings I need to do to get this to work?  Went with windows 7 larger hard drive and memory.  Did take to a computer shop to make sure driver where installed right for the ports.  Are there other divers I need to install?


General Mach Discussion / candcnc MP3000 Help
« on: October 16, 2013, 08:34:12 PM »
Just bought the MP3000 from CandCNC and the Floating head unit.
Now everything is hooked up but the Arc Ok wont come on and the tourch on LED light wont come on the Mach 3 screen and the THC sensor PWM modual.

Cant figure this out, please getting very frustrated.  Everything worked just fine before hooking all this up and now I am at a loss.


If anyone know how to walk me threw this I would really be a happy camper. 

General Mach Discussion / SheetCam Help
« on: June 06, 2013, 10:53:01 AM »
Ok, so we have our table finally up and running, getting use to Mach 3, now when I generate a GCode in SheetCam I am not seeing the G Code to turn the torch on.  What Post Processer should I use for this?  I see the Mach3 Plasma saids it has the code for the torch in it, but when I generate the code I myself don't see it.  Any idea what we are doing wrong?


Ok, so I am including photos, I need to wirer my Proma THC into a Gecko G540 2-axis drive into my Hypertherm powermax 85.

Can someone help me with the wiring.

Including photos of the Proma and Gecko Drive board.

Ok, so I have a 5 x 5 table, with the Nema 23 motors rack and pinion, having lots of problems getting the motors to run right and also how to set the limits in the Mach 3.  Very new at this, getting very frustrated.  Would love so help.  Call me to walk me threw would greatly help a lot.  Or, I can always call you, please help.  I am taking it out on my poor wife and divorce is lurking.  ;)
Or, willing to pay for gas and travel if someone lives in the Adams, Nebraska area.
