General Mach Discussion / Spindle won't start
« on: March 02, 2019, 05:06:10 AM »
I’m running a Stepcraft 600 with Mach3. I had a proxxon spindle which was switched with a Stepcraft relay SWS1200.
I have now switched to a Kress 1050. The spindle now does not switch on and off as I run a work piece.
I have to manually switch the spindle on and off when the work is finished. (Plugged in to normal socket)

When I push the spindle button on Mach3 I hear a chick at the relay but the spindle does not run.

In the Ports & Pins window, if I change Step Low to ON the spindle runs but is still not switchable. (see photo)

Anyone, any ideas?

Many thanks

G-Code, CAD, and CAM discussions / Problem with my X & Y
« on: October 11, 2015, 09:39:35 AM »
I seem to have a problem with my X & Y axis. Although I have been cutting small pieces of ply I didn’t notice a problem until recently.

It seems as if my X & Y are the wrong way round.
The home position is shown in the attachment
The Y is the longest part of my table and the X is the shortest ie width.

When I press the UP arrow the Y axis moves along the longest part of the table and the SIDE arrows, the X axis; width of the table.

When I look at the window in Mach3 and press Start, the cutter moves to the right in the window but to the left on the table.
The height is the width and vica versa.
Its as if my table is turned by 90 degrees.

The attachments show this:
In CAD the drawing is correct. When I come to cut, left is now right. I can of course turn the piece over when it is finished but there must be another way.

If I change the pins in the Motor Output settings, I reverse the X & Y but then the mechanical stops are at the wrong sides.

I am totally confused – anybody know what I am doing wrong
