General Mach Discussion / Gecko G201 settings needed for Mach3
« on: July 01, 2007, 05:53:58 PM »
I am running a controller that has Gecko G201 10 u Step Drives in it.

I am wondering if anyone has any documentation that shows the proper port and pin settings so that it will work with Mach3 ?

I have it all hooked up using my Printer port... however I am not getting any movement on the motors when I try to jog.

So in other words I need all of the settings for the various screens.

I am not using Mach3 to control my spindle motor... that is being handled by an adjustable pot.
Also I don't have any of my limit switches hooked up to this controller.

I am only using the Gecko to control my X-Y-Z Axis motors.

Any help would sure be appreciated.

Thanks,

General Mach Discussion / Loosing Y Axis position at the end of job.
« on: April 06, 2006, 11:04:27 AM »
I am using Mach 3 and I am having problems sometimes after completing running a G-Code sequence the mill will not go back to the proper Home position...... the Y-Axis will normally be off.

In other words instead of going back to the home position it will be off roughly 1/4 inch.

The problem always seems to be with the Y-Axis

The Position on the screen shows "0" for all of the X-Y-Z Axis's for both the Machine and Tool postions.... but the Y-Axis will not be at the correct location.

Here is a sample set of code which this occurred:
