Hi, Fred

Yes, I think your correct on the 240 power in England, But it was running in the US so it may have isolated input power or transformer.

Check the power cord, Dose it have 3 conductors 1 to gnd. other 2 isolated from gnd. may be a clue.

The 50hz to 60hz isn't a problem, PM'd my phone #.

Thanks, Chip

Edit: looks like good drawings.

Hi, Fred

Did you get one for Me ?, Is it single phase 240 volts ?

Hears a link that should help,  http://faculty.mercer.edu/daine_ep/content/project/Denford/Denford.shtml

Another Project, Chip

Hi, Jeff

As i stated above, It sounds like the Config, Ports & Pins, Inputs arn't setup properly.

All the inputs and outputs are on Port 1, It's your printer port cable attached to your stepper control board.

Check the Inputs, Chip

Edit: I think this is how your inputs in Mach should be

Hi, Jeff

Your home/limit sw's should be normally closed, if there working ok for homing/same sw's then you have not set limit's up properly in Config,
Ports & Pins, Inputs page.

Thy should be set the same as your Home x,y,z, sw's for each axis, Your pin numbers are probably different than in the pic, Below.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Jeff

Have you tried LazyCam with your DXF file ?, It's under File's tab in Mach3.

Haven't used Cut2D, I would think there are settings for feed-rates and such, It's made by the Vcarve folk's.

If you have your home SW's working thy can be limits also, How do you have them wired ?

Use the REPLY button and attach your DXF, G-code and XML files.

Your XML file should be in C:\Mach3 folder, If your using Mach3Mill.XML make a copy of it and re-name it to something like jeffmorris.xml

Just a Start, Chip

Hi, Mike

If you set all your tool's to tool "0" it will not post the tool setting's lines.

The G91.1 is needed to set the I J, ABS/INC mode for the G02/G03's, LCam is posting.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, Franco

I'd Re-Download the file and try it again, Seen this before.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Ben

If everything is working and operating fine, You must have changed or run some G-code that set Mach or Left Mach in a different Normal Condition/Abnormal Condition.

I don't have a list of these item's, But it can be as simple as running some G-code that leaves Mach in a G91 inc. mode,

If your Normal Condition on startup is G90 abs. mode, The button will flash green/yellow.

With the Msg you have, A g90 or g91 on the MDI line should re-set/fix it.

To reset the  Normal Condition/Abnormal Condition, green/yellow flashing back to Green, Just Double-Click on the Button and say yes to the Prompt Msg.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Danie

If you set a,b, to #1 MPG pin's and use the TAB key "Jog" window you should see movement on the DRO for the axis selected, See pic. Below.

Use the Jog Mode button to set to MPG, then Alt A to select Axis X, then move the lin. scale.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, Ed

The old file is Mach1Filter for hpgl, jpg and bmp's, Below.

It's probably better to learn LC, It's not bad.

Thanks, Chip
