Hi Mark,

Checking the steps in my motor tuning settings within Mach3 we are currently running them at around 153 steps / mm.
Our issues to be honest all disappeared when we changed the RS485 convertor to the Industrial one we are using now.
So the Huanyang will make a good back up if I we ever have any issues or failures with the Hitachi.
The cheaper Chinese RS 485 to USB converters seem to be very much a hit and miss, for anybody going down the Huanyang path I would strongly suggest theses converters http://www.commfront.com/USB-Serial-Adapters-Converters/Isolated-USB-RS232-RS485-RS422-Converter.htm
over several others.
A friend and fellow MM'er spent many a sleepless night and  a lot of time and effort working his way through this with good outcomes.

Here are a couple of little video clips of MM finally under Mach3 control.

Hi All,

Well at long last we are now cutting, still got a few things to sort out though. We were using one of the Chinese spindels and Vfd's however have not had much success integrating it with Mach3 so now we are going down the path of the Hitachi Vfd/Modbus with the Chinese spindel. We are having better success but still working our way through all the settings to try and get it right and full integration with Mach3.

Hi

Thanks for your kind comments, We started collecting some bits and pieces August last year so it has not been a quick build either ;)
Only had the time to be able to work on it one day a week so I guess that has slowed things down a lot.

Cheers
Tony

Tweakie,

Your attention to detail is awesome  ;) the rail grinding would be one of those tasks most would put off and off. Once you get into it and set yourself up too do it and with the right mind set it really is not that bad. Time taken to get it right is time well spent.  ;D
Roadrunner here we come  ;)

Cheers
Tony.
