DAVE could you possibly BORROW another LPT card from someone or possibly a friendly local PC GURU that will work with you??

OR look on your MB to see if there is a local port onboard that needs a cable to bring out.

Thinking out loud, (;-) TP

GEE DAVE you sure are making this HARD (;-) LOLOLOL

HAVE you tried deleteing MACH and the driver and starting with a fresh reload??

IS this  a LPT ver or Smoothstepper ver?? Just thought I would ask

I will give it some more thought, (;-) TP

Sorry but those are not windows based controllers(;-) It has a motion card that does all the HARD work. Windows is just the front end GUI. With MACH3 widows is having to do ALL the work to run the GUI AND output all the pulses as well . BIG difference (LPT version)

EVEN with modern Windows GUI controllers they use a specific set of hardware and SOFTWARE that are KNOWN to work and rarely deviate from those specs. Most modern controller will have SEVERAL cpu's running in sync just to keep up with everthing.

Been there done that one, (;-) TP

HIYA DAVE,  To check the voltage you check from the pin that you have assigned to a function and one of the common pins 18-25.

The dir pin is a good one as it it steady enought to give a good readout.  Look at your pin setup for say X axis and look at the dir pin. Then look at the pinout for a DB25 port. select the pin that controls the Xaxis dir and one aof the Common(grnd) pins.

Next Jog one direction in mach on the X axis and then the other. The voltage should go UP in one direction and DOWN in the other. IF it is 5v +/- then it is good IF it is 3v +/- then it may cause trouble with the BOBs ouput.

I will find a picture of the pinout of the port OR maybe it is in the manual.

OH the VB problem can be solved, I have asked around to people who DO know about such things. (;-) But it may take a major rewrite of the software to do it. AND I dought that that will happen. MAYBE MachV4 will have the answer. I think Brian has figured out that it takes a great deal of resources to do it as the Big Boys do it.

In reallity we have a great low cost product. The best part about Mach3 is it runs in windows and the worse part about Mach3 is it runs in windows (;-).

ALL the Big boys use a dedicated MB and processor(s) that they have perfected over years of developement.With windows there are 1000s of computer combinations that people try to use.

I have benn scouring the web and have found many things people have discovered about dealing with MACH3 and computors and how to correct some computor problems.

Pesonally I like your world, it is a VERY creative one  :-)

Yesterday I was reading an obscure site that had a discussion on Mach3 and multicore processors.  Some of it explained some prolbems I have seen with the way VB and MACH3 does code threading.

There are a LOT of mach3 computer fixes out there the problem is finding them.

I do know that modern ultra fast computers can drive you crazy with Mach3. Some do some don't.


Perhaps I should start gathering all that odd info up and publish it somewhere???

Just a thought, (;-) TP

Tweaky the problem lies with his computer and mach3. The code will run flawless on OTHER comnputers.  Mach still has a problem ocassionaly hanging on a macro call like  M3 M8 which are mainline Mach macros that have ran for years without problem. 

I still see it from time to time here opn a plasma machine  It will fail to start the M3 (plasma start) no errors no problems just fails to start. Go back and do a start from this line and it will start ok.

Sometimes it fails on the M30 macro. and the program does not finish it is left hanging on the next to the last line like is described here.

Just a thought, (;-)TP

As a simple test Reset the kernal speed down to 25 and retest.

IF nothing has changed in the XML then the motor tuning should have worked ok.

Do you know if the OS was setup as a single core or multi core system?
