General Mach Discussion / Tool Cal w/ Mach 3
« on: June 08, 2006, 03:47:38 PM »
All--

I am a semi-experienced user of cnc milling (fadal 3016 VMC), and have been asked to help w/ a kluged router system using Mach 3. 
The x,y,z motors are powered  by a controller from Testra corp, whose label says it is Mach 2 compatible.

It appears there is some jog-mode simulation, but thus far my attemps to make the machine move under jog mode are unsuccessful.
The procedure on standard cnc is:  you jog down to the surface at hand via a jog wheel, do a Set Length command (or edit the tool cal table), and you're done.

I can get the machine to move (ie, I can load a g-code program) via Notepad that comes up under the Edit G-code button.
But, I can't yet generate code or values from all the pretty buttons in the program.  I think I need a tutorial of sorts. 
Any leads?

Thanks for any help.
