General Mach Discussion / LC Not Saving Files
« on: February 20, 2012, 11:43:39 AM »

I'm rather new at this but have started to do a few bits and pieces.  I have no problems importing a drawing in to LC and have started to machine a few simple shapes.  However sometimes LC will not post any G code or save it to a file. Is it me or my version of LC.


Hi Guys,

I am experiencing similar problems, some of my dxf drawings will appear in LC but others are off somewhere in the great blue yonder..  The scale bar in LC usually gives a reading of something like 5094.68..  I can never find the drawing to work on it.   I use Autocad any suggestions / advice gratefully received.

Regards IDP

Hi Guys,

I've managed to come up with a solution.  My breakout board is a 5 axis board so I so I reconfigured Mach3 to output the X axis to the A input on the breakout board, then connected the X axis motor controller to the A axis output.  Seems to work fine!

I wonder though does this mean my parallel board is not working correctly ----- wonder if I ought to install a separate parallel board in my computer.

Hi I'm new to all of this and am having problems!

I am using  Windows XP Professional on a Athlon XP3200+2.10GHz prossesor.  My breakout board is a ZP5A-INT running PM542 motor drivers.  The problem is :~  TheY axis and Z axis work okay but the X axis will not move.  There are indicator LED's on the breakout board which illuminate when the Y and Z axis are running but the X axis not a flicker.  In jog mode again the Y and Z axis run but not the X axis.

I thought the problem was a fault on the breakout board, it was returned to the suppliers who tested it and returned it with no faults.

Anyone any ideas.
