General Mach Discussion / XML file for potential parallel card issue??
« on: February 12, 2016, 08:20:47 AM »
Here is my xml file.  Jog seems to work fine - otherwise system starts at 100% then begins to slow to crawl & stops.  PSU voltage seems fine.

Hey everyone - looking to see if you think my Parallel interface card might be failing.  Running Mach3 - system has been cutting fine.  Today, start a file, starts cutting fine then slowly the X axis, Y axis and even the router start to slow all the way down to a crawl - then stops.

Wondering if this might be the Parallel interface card.  I have checked voltage output of power supply,  If I restart the same file - it starts at 100% then starts to slow down again.

Any ideas????  In-A-Pinch   Peter.

Hello All,

I am new to this forum and could use some help.  Bought what I believe is a home-made CNC system that had Mach 3 and Aspire in it.  Worked great for 6 months and then the computer died.  Bought a new computer with Windows 7, downloaded Mach 3 and am trying to get it to talk to my CNC.  In the manual, I can't figure out how to get Mach 3 to talk to the motors for the X,Y and Z axis.  I see the dip switches on the motors but am really struggling to get this machine up and running.

I am looking for some help here in Maryland - any direction you might be able to give me would be appreciated.  I am not a CNC guy by trade but was able to have this system do all the cutting work I needed for scenery, sets, props - things like that.  Now I am frustrated that I can't figure it out.

Please shoot me a note - help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks   Peter
