General Mach Discussion / CNC router suddenly stopped. Please help.
« on: June 17, 2016, 09:32:23 PM »
Hello there, I have recently built a cnc router and it has worked fine with some very basic cutting of the road runner and shapes to establish all was working. I have since drawn a couple of shapes using autocad, uploaded to cambam and converted to gcode. I have uploaded this gcode into mach3 and found that when starting the cycle to cut nothing is moving on the cnc router. The jog function does not make anything move also even though the numbers in the X,Y & Z  move as the system is running.
I was having trouble earlier uploading the gcode into mach3 using lazycam and I then swapped to Cambam and found that I was able to progress better using this cam software.parts but no luck???? I am thinking I may have done something when I was struggling to upload the gcode and somehow switched off a command to run the steppers?? I had a spare new breakout board and lead so I installed these but still zero  communication between these parts of the electrical system.
All I can sure about is that everything was working ok and now no movement on the 3 axis...please help. Thanks in advance Trent Smith.

General Mach Discussion / Newbie help with Lazycam_ mach3
« on: June 10, 2016, 10:59:02 PM »
Hello, I am new to this forum and need some help. I have some basic drawings created using AutoCAD uploaded to Lazycam. The problem I have is there is a unwanted drawing sitting in the Mach3 loader tab of lazycam. I need help to remove this unwanted drawing and load my current project. I hope this is an easy thing to do.
Thanks in advance Trent Smith
