General Mach Discussion / Running Mill Wizard
« on: November 02, 2013, 11:35:13 AM »
I don't have Mill Wizard as of yet,
Just wanting to ask a couple of questions before buying.
I do have Mach3 up and running my wood router under windows XP,
Microsoft said they will no longer support Xp after this year,
1.) should we all move to the newer version of windows?
I do all my layouts, design, copy ect on another computer running Xp
I also have 2010 screen set on it to check programs before downloading to router computer,
Question is (2.) do a lot of you guys load Mill Wizard on your router computer and use it while you are cutting?
I am building a smaller cnc wood router now 28"x56" Z6" at the point of choosing a controller.
 (3) any suggestion on how to setup computer to load only Mach3
without Windows booting up first or using windows at all( not linux) is it necessary for mach to use Xp OS
any infor would be great from y'all

General Mach Discussion / Instructions for checking stepper mortors
« on: July 26, 2013, 10:37:13 PM »
Hey Guys,
Is there a simple instruction check sheet for checking all the necessary checks
to make sure every thing is matched up?
Like the signals coming from printer port to the signals that come out to the motors, and all things in between,
how to use mulit meter which wires to check for, ohms, volts, ect.
and put down on paper for future refer.
1) when you know the power supply rating
2)the size of motors china stuff have non ENGLISH markings
3)Getting into Mach3 and making all the right settings
4) when you have 2motors driving one axis and how to make sure they are set the same, for future refer.
5) on and on I go
I know this is a very long question pick or tell me where to get the info,
 I want to do my own maintenance and learn as I go.

General Mach Discussion / Moving z axis down
« on: December 21, 2012, 05:01:49 PM »
Lets say I'm running code, down to the bottom of a pocket, I want to move the z axis down .005 more without starting the
program over again, and have DRO read out the code not having the new .005 added to the DRO or code
What I did was to go back to X0 Y0 Z0 lower z axis .005 then zero out Z axis and start program all over again,
Question is: can I pause Mach3  lower Z axis .005 hit run again and have DRO read program numbers and not the .005 added to code?
does to question make senses to somebody out there with more knowledge on the way CNC touch off works.

Hey Guys,
Do I install Mach3 in Programs file? or do I
install in Programs file (x86)?
there are two folders in my computers os by those names
Question is one 32bit and the other 64 bit?
Will Mach3 put itself in the right place?

General Mach Discussion / Vortech router run Mach3
« on: July 14, 2011, 08:19:25 PM »
Any body have a set up file to run mach3 on a vortech router,
New at this, called them, having a hard time at getting a windows XP disk,
and set up file to run my router from them. which they said would supply (not as of yet)
They told me not to mess with the settings I've been going over artsoft videos over and over the
guy said, if your machine is running backward change this etc, etc,
I have had issues with the Router from day one from shipping to getting it up and running
All axis move in jog mode, put in new board it knock the power switch out ,
I turned it back on and hit the f5 key and 10 sec later the spindle came on, shut down again restarted router, now it will not turn on and off from mach3 at f5
or the inverter. Any help understanding the next step for going ahead would help.
I know there are some good helpers here willing to work thur to come up with some settings and how to deal with this company that is from my understanding are selling routers that are to work.
