i would say no.

try to Google for Siemens 840D Simulator,

maybe this is an Option.

As Craig said,

you can have the look of a 840D (by creating your own screenset),
but never the functionality of it.

attached a part of the Manual for the wiring,
you can select the mode via paramater.

in normal Operation you can move with a


to machine coords you whant, homing Switch does not matter, only Limit Switches (Z++ Z--) will
be active.

ok i think you have something simular to this:


this set has a parallel port breakout board.

for pp you have to have a pc with win7 32bit, and a real parallel port.

usb to pp will not work, does not matter witch win Version you have.

if you want to use win10/64bit you have to go to a external Motion Controller.

like uc100, smoothstepper ore something lik this.

oops Bryanna was faster  ;)

I do use A TC-50M as a controller.

ok had a look to the Manual, in this case i think 0 for step/dir pules is ok/does not matter.

back to the Basic Problem.

did you check the real distances as described (MDI G1Xsomething) and measure ?
same for Y axis.

anyway, if the real distances match to to the DRO's, X and Y should move the same Speed.

you can also do a simple test via MDI


should give a simulitanious move of both axis.

by rereading all the post's i recogiced that your machine is belt driven (my bad english,and the Age).

ok that means one motorrevolution is 40mm, right?

in this case your motortuning of velocity 400mm/min is very low (what actually means for the Motor 10 rev/Min).

don't realy know what Speed you expected to run?, but i think for a woodmill (have no Experience with Wood),
it is IMHO to slow.


ok from motortuning X an Y should run the same Speed.

i would put 40 for acceleration.

a bit surprises me that step pulse and dir pulse is Zero, put 5 in there.

are you using parallel port or a Motion Controller ?

can you please post a screenshot of

Config->Motor Tuning -> X-axis and
Config->Motor Tuning -> Y-axis

my pulley is a 20 teeth and the second wheel ? how many teeth?
