General Mach Discussion / Re: Machine not always following Mach3

Here is a picture of what's it's doing.  This tool path is a 3d rough cut so the detail is not yet there.  As you can see it's causing the antlers to be cut through the top edge of the material.

So I changed my acceleration but either the cnc, gcode or mach3 keeps cutting the antlers about two inches above the head.  It's all one file but it keeps doing it at the same place.

Thanks tweekie,  I downloaded the file straight from Artsoft Vectric for VCarve Pro.  I'm betting your right about the velocity and acceleration.  I'm pretty new 21st this and got the motors running but I didn't know anything about those two things.  I have never messed with those settings.
Man, DIY stuff is fun but the school of hard knocks can be expensive and frustrating.

Hello,

I bought an elk head file from Vectric.  My machine roughed it out and finished nicely.

When I ran same file today the machine picked up and moved to do the antlers but it moved way to far and now the antlers are 2" away from the head.

Can anyone tell me what went wrong?

To clarify Z axis, it will hit the switch and then move off just a bit to turn out the M LED in Diag.  Then nothing happens, no errors, nothing.

Hello all,

I have searched and searched but seem to find no one with the same problem.

i attached homing switches to my machine and am trying to get them to communicate with Mach3.  I ran them in series and each switch will light M1, M2 and M3 in the Diagnostic screen.  When I press Reference All only the Z axis will home, it won't even try to move Y and X.  I can run programs fine with GCode and move any axis manually.  The only problem I am having is the homing problem.  I have all my ports and pins set up on pin 10 and verified that Mach sees the switches through Diagnosis.

Any ideas?  I have a tb6560 ahq board that seems to work fine.

Thanks,  I have been ready to throw the thing away I am so frustrated.
