WE CAN''T HEAR YOU!!!!!!!.

Why don't you post your G-code, Or take the "g## Z0" out of your G-code.

Good Luck, Chip

Hi, Andrew

I think your best bet is to get a new mouse, Less than $20.00 hear.

Hi, Dan

Can you ex-plane your servo setup, Is it +- 10 volt control ?, There are cards for Step-Dir to +-10 & +-5 volts.

Dose it have a CPU to controls/coordinate the moves ?

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Olf20

Post your g-code, Is it Cad generated or Hand g-code ?

Post your XML file, It's in your C::\Mach3 folder, Probably Mach3Mill.xml, Make a Copy of it then Re-name the copy to off20test and  post it.

Are you running in Exact Stop or CV Mode ?

It's a Start, Chip

Hi, Brian

What about a gecko driver could this work?,  Yes

Has anyone done this before ?, Yes, Used in several small stepper board kit's.

The 555 timer sounds promising but sounds above my head ?, Couldn't Happen !!

The timer board, 1 555 timer, 2 resistors 1 var. resistor 1 capacitor, 5 volts in, 5 volts puls out.

2, Push button switches N.O. DPST , UP Down.

All parts should be at Radio-Shack

Sent you a PM

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Fred

Reg: "When I use the MPG the “Y” axis is backwards from what I think it should be".

In your Ports and Pins, Motor Outputs, Are all your Axises set to the same Dir LowActive, ether X or Checked ? (thy should all be the same)

In Motor Home/Soft Limits, Reversed Box should be used to change Axis Direction?

If this doesn't fix it, You need to swap your stepper motor wires on the rev axis to solve this, (4 wire stepper, Swap A & A-), ( 5-6 wire stepper, Swap 1234

to 4321), Then un-check the Rev. Box.

I've sent you a PM (top of this page, User Info) or PM your Phone #.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, Murat

Hear's a xml and an A axis g-code file to try.

You'll need to change pin numbers for your stepper setup.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, Chris

On Mach startup in the Status window are you seeing Driver Successfully Initialized.

Have you run the driver test ?, It's in your C:\Mach folder.

Hope this Helps, Chip
