Thanks Hood,
I was hoping to use the readouts in a manual situation not close the loop. I am retro fitting the existing DC servo motors with encoders to work with Viper drives to work in a CNC function but would like the option of using the DRO's for X,Y and Z axis with the servos off. Arturo mentioned adding a Smoothstepper board for the purpose of reading the glass scale encoders as he was unsure that the PP would be fast enough.
How would this work?

Hello All,
I have a newbie question, As I understand, Mach 3 can read encoders an send that information to the DRO's and that this will require the use of the second Parallel Port configuration. I am not sure of the resolution of the encoders, although there is a label stating .01mm. How do I find the resolution of these encoders and will the PP interface be fast enough to catch the pulses from the encoders. This will be used in a manual operation.

Thanks

Works in progress / Jog and Teach screen

Hi Folks,
Is there a way to make a screen where I would jog and test a cut and then record the positions with the teach function.
I have a machine where I would like to position the spindle essentially with a Y and Z axis.

Thanks

Yeah. I looked a little earlier and realized the same thing. I bought this unit 6 years ago and child rearing took over. Just started to revisit the project after the Anilam Crusader picked out

Hi
Has anyone experienced the issue with copying the setup.exe folder.
On my PC the folder appears faded compared to the folders in the Mach3 directory. I have the thumb drive plugged in paste the copy to it and I can see it. But when I transfer to the new PC the setup.exe file is not on the thumb drive..........

Gentlemen,
I have had a licensed copy of Mach3 on my computer for a number of years. I now would like to move the software and license to the PC that I am using for my Bridgeport retrofit. How do I accomplish this?

Thanks
