I think a lot of mach runs in the video chip, there is a log file somwhere for windows "event viewer" I think

hmm i will check it. But does the windows event viewer shows information about thermal trips also?

I'd load up one of the temperature monitoring apps and verify that the CPU overheating is actually the issue.
Heat sinks will get hot even in normal operation.

Did you put thermal paste on before remounting the heat sink?

The reset could be any number of things.

no i didn't had any thermal paste so i just cleaned it and mounted again. The processor was not sitting with the heat sink properly so used some sand paper to make both of them flat and wow it ran successfully for 2 hours.

hello friends, (again)
the problem started yesterday when my PC restarted automatically and the same is happening randomly. I guess it is a thermal trip.
okay i know what to do. I opened up the heat sink, and there wasn't any thermal paste. I cleaned the things then put the heat sink back on the processor.
Now it ran for around 2 hours then again a thermal trip and restart. i touched the heatsink and it was warm. (i guess that processor was too hot that time because the outer fins were warm and i am sure it was more hot on its center.
my question is "how much ram does mach3 turn can eat and how can i get rid of this thermal trip" It has a P4 2.5ghz processor and 512 mb ram.

thanks in advance,

General Mach Discussion / Re: quick question about the demo version of Mach

You can do a lot with the demo version. There are other features that don't work, like Run from Here and threading in Turn.

But nothing to prevent you from running the machine and making parts. My machine paid for the license making parts with the demo version.
threading is supported in the demo 2.0 version of mach

i love you all :)
many thanks

General Mach Discussion / mach3 turn icon opening the mach3 mill everytime
« on: September 05, 2011, 12:23:55 PM »
hello friends,
i was running my lathe for days and suddenly my pc restarted and after that whenever i open mach3turn.exe icon on my desktop, it always launches the mach3 mill.
I have tried using the mach3 loader also but i am failed to launch mach3 turn. what's wrong with the system. Do i need a reinstall of mach3? i am feared of loosing my settings.

Or i was just thinking about hacking a keyboard to make a panel and use the oem triggers.

Hello friends,
i want to control mach3 totally from external switches so obviously, the inputs and outputs of 2 ports are not enough. The one solution is modbus i guess.
I know a little bit of uC programming and use of their i/O and want to know where should i start with mach3 modbus. I want to know how it works and what are the limitations of using it. Can just two pins on the port can create a way between 20 switches and mach3?

i don't have any prior knowledge about serial communication. I don't even know if there is any difference between modbus and serial com.
Any help from there?

General Mach Discussion / Re: mach3 estop external switch issue
« on: August 05, 2011, 11:25:27 AM »
I have a feed hold button, a cycle start button breaker and a spindle power cut off on my lathe's door. So things are very much safe as long as i think. It has some big steppers on it so if i unfortunately get hit by one of my axis sometime, i am sure there will be some broken bones. but i have seen guys of my age spending months on bed after breaking their ribs on skates on AXN. LOL!

Ok, thanks for everyone's comments and help. Giving up that estop issue, i would like to know about the limitations of modbus or serial communication with mach3.
I am going to start a new thread. please share your knowledge

yeah, i tried it too.
Mach just stay in reset mode beacause the chargepump will reset it 10 times a second.
As for the fingers. I have been working with lathes and mills since 5 years. I was 18 when i got into machines and now i am 23 and luckily i still have all of my fingers.
Well, i will forget about this reset button from now as all of you are saying that it is dangerous. But do the commercial machines also lack this feature. I mean do they need to click something to get out of the estop mode after unlatching that mushroom?
