General Mach Discussion / Re: Probe Installation Problems!!!!!!!!!
« on: May 26, 2010, 07:48:41 AM »
I think that we both have the same set up. I never used a probe nor have I ever built or run a CNC mill before. This is a hobby for me.
 I bought a probe from wildhorse and did try to set it up as a NC switch. I have a CNC4PC Break Out Board wher I hooked up the yellow wire to pin 15 and the red wire to 5V.
In Mach3 Config>Ports and Pins>Input Signals I enabled the "Probe" used Port#1 Pin Number 15 and checked Active Low.
That being said I don't think my system is working correctly. I wish there was a tutorial on using the Probing plug-in and set up. Have you found out anything new or is your probe working?
Maybe between the two of us we can figure this out.

Thanks to all. I did cut off the connectors (that I made) to the "Y" axis motor and remade this wire and everything works fine now.
Either I will find a better connector or eventually once I am confident with the set up I will solder the cables to the wires.

General Mach Discussion / Xylotex Motor Tuning Settings

Does anyone have  X,Y and Z motor tuning information for Mach3 with a Xylotex 3-axis system, .20 pitch ball screw, 425 oz.in. 1/8 stepped motor ? Or something close to this?

Thanks. I will look into the connections and ask Xylotex about testing the board.

I am running Mach3 with a Xylotex 3-axis, 425 oz.in. motor system on the bench, no load.
I can use the arrow keys or mouse over the direction buttons on the screen and the motors turn.
If I repeatedly jog  the motors activating the same direction button the Y and z axis motors will intermittantly revers direction.
I can't find a pattern on when and how often the motors will reverse direction while pushing the same direction button.
Does anyone have any ideas. It would be much apreciated.
