I finally got my table running.
Sheetcam Mach3 post processor
Hypertherm 45xp
Home made table
Mach 3 software.
Yesterday I made my first real cut but I had to start the torch manually. It will not come on automatically as it should.
It does shut itself off at the end of the run.
I do not see a M3 code at the beginning of the program as someone on plasmaspider forum suggested.

I am having issues with my software.
At the top of the screen it says demo issue. Is that because I have not licensed it yet?

General Mach Discussion / Table size

I am having a beast of a time setting my table size and getting my machine coordinates to do anything. I can get the dros to zero in the work coordinates but not in the machine coordinates.
Am I right in that the machine coordinates button is showing the machine coordinates when the red led is lit around the button?
Below is my homing/limits settings.

General Mach Discussion / Plasma water table
« on: May 24, 2016, 08:15:09 PM »
I am past my electronic problems so I am starting another thread.
My plasma table is going to have a water pan and I am at the point in the build where I need to build the pan. The dimensions are roughly 5 feet by 4 foot 4 and three inches deep. I am looking for suggestions on how thick of metal to use for the pan.
forty gallon of water will be the weight.

First off this is my first build and things were going good until I tried to get the motors to turn.
Dell OptiPlex 755 computer
Longs motor kit and drivers
Mach3 downloaded
Only thing on the computer is windows7 and mach 3
I have triple checked my wiring and everything is hooked up like it should be but this is what happens when buttons are pushed.
Buttons pushed             What happens
Y+                              Y+ turns
Y-                               Y- turns
x+                             z+
X-                              z-
Z+ or-        Nothing happens
4+                      X+
4-                       X-

I have tried all kinds of pin settings and nothing changes, I have even set all pins to 0 and still get the same results.
I know it sounds crazy but that's what I have to deal with.
If anyone has had similar results PLEASE reply to this so I can get it figured out.
 Thank you very much.
