General Mach Discussion / Spindle stopped during code running
« on: May 11, 2015, 12:25:04 PM »
Hi Guys,
I just had a bad experience and really don't know how to handle it:
- The spindle motor stopped while running the code !!!
After resetting the machine the spindle was working ok, like nothing happened, so I assume that the controller has some sort of current overload protection that stops the spindle if overloaded.
I have a small 3040T cnc router with Mach3.
How can I set Mach3 to stop all activity (freeze servos and pause code running) if the spindle stops ?
Thanks for reading this guys and for the ones who will answer....thanks a lot.  
The more detailed answer you time permits...the better :)

General Mach Discussion / Newbie question
« on: February 12, 2015, 09:02:38 AM »
Hi guys,
Newbie here, just registered.
I just started this hobby, with a small 3axis, Aspire and Mach3.
My question is related to the tool change procedure.
I generated the G-code for a part in Aspire. There are 3 tools used for it.
There is a setting in Aspire about the home position. My home is at x=0, y=0, z=30mm
Well, I was expecting the machine to go with tool #1 at (home)  0,0,30 and wait for me to say "go" after changing to tool #2 and resetting the zero for Z.
What it did was this:  at the end of the roughing with tool #1 , it stopped and went up 10mm. That's it.
Am I missing a step, a setting , something ?
I didn't run the simulation for each step in Aspire; can that do anything wrong to the G-code ?
Thanks for your support guys.
