G-Code, CAD, and CAM discussions / Down load Gcode fail
« on: August 23, 2021, 06:47:12 PM »
Have used Vectric with Mach3 for many years without problems. Recently gcode would not download. This is a text file and noticed the file heading  where the gcode text file was to go was *tap. Changed this to all files *txt*   and download then worked fine. Upon moving to the next project the * tap returned. How do I permanently get the file type to return permanently to text. I have always manually downloaded the gcode text file. Dowmload direct to machine has never worked, how is this feature set up.

General Mach Discussion / SPINDLE CONTROL SETUP MACH 3 G540
« on: December 17, 2014, 05:22:54 PM »
I AM SETTING UP A 4 AXIS WOOD ROUTER WHICH HAS A 1.5KW CHINESE SPINDLE POWERED BY A FULING DBZ312B001.5L2DK INVERTER. 220V AC INPUT. 220V 3 PHASE OUTPUT,
0 - 1000HZ.
THE ONLY FULING MANUAL I CAN FIND IS  FOR THE 200 SERIES HOWEVER ALL THE TERMINALS ARE THE SAME. EMAILS TO FULING FOR HELP HAVE BEEN IGNORED
I HAVE CONNECTED THE INVERTER TO THE G540 AS FOLLOWS
G540 VDF +10 V (PIN9)                 CONNECTS TO DBZ 10V TERMINAL
G540 VDF OUTPUT (PIN8)             CONNECTS TO DBZ A1 TERMINAL
G540 VDF GROUND (PIN 7)            CONNECTS TO DBZ ACM TERMINAL
THERE SEEMS TO BE A LOT OF ITEMS ON THIS SUBJECT IN THE FORUM. READING ALL THE MANUALS AND THE THREADS HAS NOT HELPED ME TO UNDERSTAND WHAT I NEED TO START/STOP AND CONTROL SPINDLE SPEED FROM MACH 3.
I HAVE THE ABILITY TO TURN ON THE POWER MANUALLY TO THE INVERTER AND SEE NO NEED FOR A RELAY FOR THIS PURPOSE.
IN SIMPLE TERMS WHAT OTHER CONNECTION DO I NEED TO START/STOP AND CONTROL THE SPINDLE FROM MACH 3. I AM NEW TO CNC AND HAVE LIMITED KNOWLEDGE OF THE TERMINOLOGY USED. SPECIFIC CONNECTION INFORMATION TERMINAL TO TERMINAL WOULD BE APPRECIATED. IF I HAVE TO PURCHASE OTHER BOARDS TO MAKE THE SYSTEM WORK THEN THAT IS OK.
THE FINAL WIRING OF THE ROUTER HAS STOPPED DUE A BROKEN COLLAR BONE SO I DO NOT EXPECT TO RESUME UNTIL THE END OF JAN 15 SO THERE IS NO HURRY
REGARDS DAVID
