Mach4 General Discussion / Re: Wonky Cutting

My first guess would be that you have your motor accelerations are set too low.

Mach4 Toolbox / Re: Running 3040T with Mach4
« on: July 13, 2017, 07:47:18 PM »
Your JP-382C board is an integrated parallel port breakout board and three
axis motor driver. If you intend to replace it, you will need motor drivers to
go with your PoKeys57CNC board.

On the other hand if you had gotten a PoKeys57CNCDB25 then you could
simply plug it onto the existing JP-382C board and configured Mach4 to
run it.

Information about the pinout of the DB25 inputs to the JP-382C board can
be seen here:

Mach4 General Discussion / Re: where to find the machine.ini file?
« on: July 12, 2017, 11:47:35 PM »
You will find a file named "Machine.ini" in C:\Mach4Hobby\Profiles\your-profile-name

If you are trying to move or copy a profile it is better to save a "packaged profile"
using Help > Support > Create Packaged Profile and then import the resulting
file on the new system using the Mach4Loader.

It is likely that your original step size resulted in movement greater than the increment
size of the jog that you requested. Mach would accumulate movement requests until
they resulted in an actual step.

In lathe mode the jog increment will move the X mechanical component the amount of the
jog increment setting, but the DRO is reading the DIAMETER of the result. Since the
mechanical movement is in radius, the diameter change will be twice the jogged amount.

The PMDX-411 has been tested and runs fine with build 3390 of Mach4. Something in
your profile must have gotten stepped on. If you want assistance, please provide
a copy of your "Packaged Profile" either here or as a private email to PMDX.

You can generate the Packaged Profile in Mach4 using HELP > Support > Generate Packaged Profile.

Be sure to do this while running the profile of interest.

I respectfully disagree with answer 2 above. Ena+ and Ena- should be left not connected for normal operation.

Look in your C:\Mach4Hobby\DOCS folder and double click on the PmcEditor.chm file.

You may not see the .chm file name extension, depending on your OS and configuration.

If you installed Mach4Hobby in other than the default location, adjust where you look
accordingly.

If you have Mach4 running, you can click on Help > Documentation Folder

If you hear a single click every other time that you reverse direction, then
you most likely have the Step and Direction signals swapped in your wiring
or configuration.
