General Mach Discussion / Emergency Stop in Mach 3
« on: August 08, 2012, 12:31:10 PM »
Along with the "STOP" button in Mach 3, Is the space bar on the keyboard an emergency stop as well ?  If it is, is it set by default?
Thank you,

General Mach Discussion / Contour Design Shuttle Express problem
« on: January 28, 2012, 10:15:06 AM »
Hello All,
I have just installed a Shuttle Express  control on my CNC, which of course runs under Mach3.  The unit works fine except that it has cancelled my option to use my keyboard as well as the buttons on my Shuttle Express, for axis motion.  What do I need to do to get my keyboard functionality back?
Thank you,

General Mach Discussion / Parallel port PCI, or Parallel port PCI Express?
« on: November 30, 2011, 06:58:01 PM »
I am just now completing putting a new computer together to run a Hermes Vanguard 7000 Engraving machine.  In order to have a Parallel port connection to my new Mother Board, I need to purchase a Paralell Port PCI Card Adaptor.  I see where my Mother Board, which is an Intel, supports PCI Express, along with the older Architecture PCI Slot.
My question is which would allow my Mach 3 software, that I use to run the machine, to  run smoother and faster, the PCI Standard, or the PCI Express?  Will Mach 3 be able to confortably handle the PCI Express?
Thank you, in advance,

General Mach Discussion / Reset Button Flashing
« on: February 13, 2011, 10:34:10 AM »
I am a total newbie to CNC, I have just installed Mach3 and when I attempt to hit the Reset button, it keeps flashing and I get
a message "External E-Stop requested".
Will someone kindly give me a solution to this ?
I am using Windows XP, and my Cad program is Visual Mill, or Rhino-Cam, on a Vanguard 7000 machine.
