General Mach Discussion / Techno-ISEL Mac200 setup question
« on: July 10, 2008, 05:54:40 PM »
I have just graduated from a very small home built CNC router to a Techno-ISEL Mac200 controller/ Router system.

My problems come with the pin setups for the controller and other settings to make Mach 2 or Mach3 work with it. By any chance is there someone on here that has one of these beasts that can help me get it up and running?

The documentation that I have from Techno-ISEL does not contain the right information I am looking for as far as the pin configuration betweent he computer and the controller. I'm sure this is a setup issue with Mach, but I have no clue where to get started.


General Mach Discussion / zero doesnt equal zero?

 First off, I am VERY new to CNC and the Mach3 software. I purchased the full working version because it looks so simple to use.

I have everything set up, I finally was able to get the software working and talking to my equipment, and figured out that all of my motors needed to be reversed in order to work. A BIG thanks to everyone who posted replies in the forum's previous posts for your excellent explanations on how to solve these common problems!!

I have an issue that I cant seem to find a solution to with a search:

I can set my Z to zero, set the work thickness, and tool offset and  then manually jog the Z up and down to 1, then to -.01 (several times) and when the machine is at -0.1 ( running the roadrunner.set file) starts to run, the tool is actually much too deep (around -0.4) and immediately breaks my tool.  For the life of me I cant figure out why the tool is deeper when running the program than it is when I manually jog it to the same depth.

I have already tried setting the tool offset to 0.66 , and also setting it at zero. I have tried setting the work height at zero with no offset and also setting it to the actual offset height. I have tried setting the tool height to zero while touching the top of the work.

I'm stumped...

Can anyone offer a solution?
