General Mach Discussion / Re: axis doesn't move after upgrade
« on: October 17, 2013, 09:12:49 AM »
I wanted to bring everyone up to speed on the latest developing from this.  I was able to find a document online that proved somewhat valuable in getting the machine moving.  Or maybe it was the "bridgeport again.xml" file.  I started everything up as normal and attempted to jog the machine with no luck.  However, I started to lean on the table while pressing the jog button and noticed that it was jolting every time I pressed the jog button. 

I believe the table was moving but not like it originally was.  I think it/is moving maybe .0001 every time I press and or press and hold the jog button.  Whereas previously if I pressed and held the jog button it would continuously move the table.  What is normal? 

Does anyone have any settings that they found to be the most efficient without losing any steps for the motor tuning?

I finally got a hold of the Darek at ashburn@icx.net and I am very disappointed in him.  I have been trying to reach him for months.  I have reached out to numerous other manufactures and they have done so much to help me get this going again.  But Darek would not offer ANYTHING!!!  I asked very specific questions and all he would do is pass along some links that no longer exist.  And when specifically asking for answer to the questions he said he didn't have any answers.  To say the least if board breaks I will never replace it with a hillbilly BOB.

Thank you for all your help. 

I don't want to assume anything with this because I know very little about how it works.  Can you walk me through how to verify I have the correct port address?

Do you have any schematics, print outs, instructions, anything that can guide me along the way?  I have no clue what pins would go to what drives.  Are you still thinking this is a software issue?  As I stated the machine worked great before I upgraded Mach 3.

Thanks again

I loaded it just like you stated and it still didn't move any of the axis.  Any idea where to look now?

Hood,
Thank you for all your assistance with this.  I was deployed last minute and just got back to continue working on this.  Please excuse my lack of knowledge with this.  So I opened the link that you sent and found a file called "bridgeport again" in the 3rd post. I assume I just need to rename that file and place it in the Mach3 folder?  Thanks for all your assistance.

While I was gone I also tried numerous time to email the contact I found for the Hillbilly BOB, I didn't receive anything in return.  Does anyone know if he is still in business? 

Thanks again,

That is what I figured.  The machine is pretty much stock with a hillbilly BOB.  Is that enough information or do I need specifics?  I know it has stock steppers and pulleys.

The above file is believed to be the original, I had to rename it to get it to upload. 

I was also looking around in the config - ports and pins menu and noticed that the x,y,z axis were not setup.  I have no idea what the pinout on the board is.

I saved the xml file; however, that doesn't seem to be helping at all.  I might not have grabbed the right one???  I have no idea what the settings are supposed to be.  I have found a few things no internet and now the e-stop seems to be responding but can't get anywhere with the drives.

I did an uninstall of the existing software then reinstalled the new version.  I believe it is in the same location "default" on the C:\
