General Mach Discussion / Re: uc300 usb controller
« on: January 13, 2014, 06:13:16 PM »
Well I can highly recommend a uc300 now Ive bought one, very very simple to set up and Balazs at CNC drive gave fantastic service once more! If your thinking of getting one you will not be disappointed.

General Mach Discussion / Re: Spindle parking with mach ideas please

been toying with this for my toolchanger, thinking along the lines of the spindle stops and a dc motor engages it and turns spindle to an optical switch, and orientating it for the drive dogs,im using using a tormach type system with a carosell but quit frankly its useless for anything other than drilling or light milling. need a bt30 solution.

General Mach Discussion / uc300 usb controller
« on: December 12, 2013, 07:33:51 AM »
just on the cusp of buying a usb controller and the one that is catching my eye is the cncdrive (whose products ive used and are happy with there excellent service) uc300-5lpt.
 The spec. seems as good as any and the price is better than many! But is there a "but" are they any good? has anyone here used one?
regards

nope its both mpg's and it can happen when there set in any axis combination, once they start creeping i need to flick a hardwired axis selection or step/cont. switch to stop it? as far as pci pp are concerned ive noticed that the moschip ones donot work bi directional ie 2-9 as inputs is there a recomendation for a card that does,i have an old ime ? card which does but there very hard to find these days.

ok reloaded mach,made no difference, did the press  , for reset trick and it still made no difference.it has got to be something to do with the MPG set up side of things,maybe having 2 mpg's is not so good? could it be the pci pp card that the mpg's wire into? any thoughts guys?

Hmm yes its looking more and more like a format and total reload, just such a pain finding all the drivers again! And you know its goiing toi be 3 hours work and probably won't cure it, which is the most stable version for using with a tool changer? Can I use my old mach files ie xlm settings oir is it ewise to re write them from scratch ?

"Mach3 not having WORLD jogging makes it tough to run 5/6 axis code"

what does that mean?

well I guess from the lack of advice, answers practically no one is running mach on 5 axis!
