Hi, I have a hobby cnc pro rev 1 board running mach 3, I had everything running, limit and home switches working, shut down last nite, started up this am the z axis would not move only whirring sound, disconnected wires for z and wired them to x axis, worked fine, disconnected again and wired back into z, worked fine, hooked up original wires from x to x terminal, guess what, x axis now just whirrs but dos not turn. Any ideas besides garbage can?

Thanks guys for the help, I am using version 3 trial edition. I will watch the videos again, I suspect it is ok, I just have a large learning curve to get around.

Thanks for the reply Chaoticone, I have my motors enabled and they all run in the proper direction including homeing, is there something in the outputs screen regarding motors I have missed?

Hi, I am brand new to cnc, I have my machine built and have limit and home switches working properly, my question is why when I ask for a configuration test, it shows an error in output --no pins or ports selected, the only outputs I have enabled is for the pump signal and I have the proper settings set. Also what is the proper sequence to test the machine, I type in some g code in the mdi screen but when I switch to run screen, the code is not there. What am I missing?
Thanks for any help you can offer.

Hi, I am new and just finished my desktop machine using a board from hobby cnc with an e stop addition, my limit switches are nc in series and by checking one of the axis in the pins input screen they work fine triggering an e stop, my home switches are nc hooked up individually to their own pin and activated in the above screen, when I manually push the home switches with the axis moving, nothing happens, the motor continues on. What am I missing? Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
Thank you.
