Hi, Willem

The 6 volts isn't connected to the port, Just the Gnd/Neg, A and B outputs thay should be 5 volts from what i've seen.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Yercik

Looked at your XML, Nothing jumped out as being wrong.

As you stated "When the machine go to home, spindle starts. Any input ((home switch or emergency) activates outputs)."

If you press the E-Stop and your spindle turns ON then there is a logic Issue, Sounds like your spindle and Toolchanger relays power needs to be wired

through NO side then configure the ActiveLow Logic "X or Check."

When the E-stop/Reset is Red the Outputs Leds turn off, The logic state doesn't effect the output led flashing.

So with E-stop/Reset is flashing Red your spindle should be OFF, Then with it Reset/Green the outputs will be off untill you issue a M3 On and M5 Off.

Maybe I've missed something hear.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, Art, Brian

Could you look at this file, The two red objects don't offset properly, seem to import fine though.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Antti

Jog to the spot you want to set as start point, Use the Zero Button for x,y,z, This resets your  x0, y0, z0, Code should run from there.

On exiting Mach you'll see a Fixture Save click on No, There are several other ways to do this, Just simplest for one offs.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, Yercik

Post your Mach3Mill.XML file, Use the Reply button, Brett switch in between pins 25 to 13 is fine.

List your Pin usage for setup.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Mbwittig

Yes neg. to Gnd, Not all cables or PPort cards use all the 18-25 pins, If your using a brake-out board all are probably tied together on the board though.

Thanks, Chip

Mach3 Load in LCam 2.076 is not loading Points / Dots, see below file.

I load it into LCam, Post it, Then use Mach3 Load, No dots.
