General Mach Discussion / pwm bumped to minimum setting
« on: June 29, 2013, 03:00:39 PM »
Hi guys, I'm stuck..again on something...my cnc tries to run my gcode but just locks up. it gives me this status in mach3 :

"PWM bumped to minimum setting"

anyone know what that means?


Sorry if this question is dumb I'm totaly new to all of this. I have see bits and pieces of this info in my searching but nothing that is easy to follow or seems to have a solid solution.

Can anyone direct me to the best solution for adding/configuring a z zero touchplate and using the auto tool zero features?

I'm using Mach 3 and the geckodrive


General Mach Discussion / struggeling to run a gcode from cambam
« on: June 06, 2013, 09:56:11 PM »
I'm very new to this and still learning, and I am hoping someone can identify what is causing my gcode not to run correctly in mach3.

I made the tool paths in cambam and I must be missing something, I just don't know what...

I attached the gcode in case anyone could take a look at it. I have a feeling it is something simple that I just don't know about...


General Mach Discussion / Alignment for two sided machining ?
« on: June 01, 2013, 06:13:36 PM »
I'm trying to cut a two sided object and I'm having a hard time figuring out how to get it perfectly aligned when I flip it over to do the second side.

Anyone  have any tips to help me figure this out?

Thank you!

General Mach Discussion / CNC doesn't move but mach3 thinks it is
« on: June 01, 2013, 01:17:38 PM »
Hi I'm trying to run my first 3d profile project and I'm guessing it must be a simple issue that I'm having.

I created an object which was exported as .stl  then in Cambam I created the gcode

Gcode opens fine in mach3 and looks right.

When I start to run, the motors make noises but they don't actually move the router, meanwhile mach3 is showing as if everything is moving along fine.

If I cut other gcode files that are just 2d files, the CNC moves as it should and works great.

Can anyone tell me what I'm missing ?
