Hi

I have finally sorted this machine and have it setup correctly after a lot of available manuals for the same machine with different settings.

I have swapped the default X and Y axis around for what I consider to be a better working area and better suited to most cad/cam software.

After downloading file, if you want to then rename it or leave as it is and put it into C:\Mach3 folder. REMEMBER to open mach3 then choose this file rather than the standard mach3mill.xml file

Here is the XandYswappedMach3Mil.xml file......

Cheers Jim - yeah I did all three axis, works like a charm now

I have posted a copy of my .xml file for any other TS3040 owners to drop into their mach3 so they can get up and running, I also swapped the x and y axis for a better machining area.

I have asked admin if they can stick it in the right section and mark it as sticky as it will be very useful for others and will solve the confusion of the 4 manuals for the machine that re the same except the settings are different

Really appreciate your suggestion and it worked a treat :)

Admin - I think there is probably a section for this and can I suggest it be sticky please

Hi

I have created a perfect .xml file for the TS3040c-H80 which I have attached to a post in general mach discussions but I think maybe it should go into another section and can I suggest it be a sticky please as a lot of people have problems setting this machine up.

Sorted thanks :) - attached digital verniers to the spindle with a cable tie and ran the steps per config in settings

Great thanks will try that when i get home :)

Thats a good thought, tape a vernier to the spindle, extend vernier til it touches the bed then move the spindle down thus giving accurate reading, excellent!!!!!

Hi

 I have had one of these machines for a couple of weeks and have run out a few bits.

 Problem I have is when maching in Z axis when its stepping down it's gaining distance, for example a program I ran stepped down 1mm at a time and when it got to 8mm down on the program it had actually machined 12mm down, I would think the steps per, acceleration and velocity is wrong in the config, motor tuning settings.

 I have contacted the supplier who says leave the settings as default which is clearly not right, The paper manual said a different setting and a pdf manual they sent me said another different setting, I have also downloaded 2 other manuals for this machine and they have different settings.

 I'm pulling my hair out as all the manuals for the same machine give different settings.


 Can someone on here confirm that they can machine to correct distances and steps and please tell me what settings they are using for each axis

 These settings are in the config, motor tuning section and the numbers I need are for - steps per, acceleration, velocity and the step pulse and the Dir pulse


 If you can help i'd really appreciate it

 Many thanks

Hi that's great that you found that, thankyou and it has the steps per etc etc in there which I will change later.

So does the steps for control the amount of screw rotation to achieve a specific set distance?

Thinking about it I would think it is to do with these settings as if it was mechanical then the machining depth would vary across the board but even though too deep it is constant and the fact that the settings I have in mach3 are default and are twice the amount that is recommended in the file you just sent me.

I had an e-mail back from suppler attaching the same pdf as you just linked to. Bloody typical, Why they didn't let me have it before I don't know.

I'll change settings and see what happens and let you know.

Thanks for your help, really appreciate it.  :)

Regards
