can you please post your XML file?
 the Manual says noting about the used Signal, exept
all the torch control is done via LPT port 2.

Thank You

i dont know your System/Hardware, and found no documentation about plasmaroute control box,
but normaly there is an Output (i.E. spindlerelay) witch Switches the cutter on/off (via M3 macro)

so if you post some Information of your box, and some screenshots of ports&pins -> spindle Setup.
also your XML would be helpful.

you can also try to replace this line:


Code "G0 Z1.0" 'retract Z to 1.0 Inch

with:

Code "G91 G0 Z1.0" 'retract Z to 1.0 Inch
Code "G90"

but i am not sure the retract goes into material, or the G31

best way would be to runn the code in VB scripter window,
and step through the code by using the >||, to see where
the fault happens.

btw have you watched the index Input in diagnostic Screen, when
the fault occurs ?

ok there is one important difference in you probing routines:

1. the edge finde Routine

Call SetDRO (2,0.000)
Code "G4 P0.025" 'Pause for Dro to update.
Code "G90 G0 Z.500" 'retract Z to .500 inch

here you set your Z-axis to 0 and the go up to 0.5 (absolute)

2. the z probe

Call SetDRO (2, PlateThickness) 'set the Z axis DRO to whatever is set as plate thickness
Code "G4 P0.25" 'Pause for Dro to update.
Code "G0 Z1.0" 'retract Z to 1.0 Inch

here you set Z-axis to plate thickness (what ever in DRO 1002 is) and the go up to 1 (absolute)

so if DRO1002 >= 1in you will go into material

if you go to diagnostic Screen and have a look for Torch ON Signal.

If THC is on M3 macro is waiting for this Signal.

just start mach3.exe by doubleclick,
then create new Profile with Standard Parameter.

cheap or expensive does not matter for the Moment.
without a propper XML None of them has a Chance to work.

ok had a look to your XML.
it seems to be bad, it contains only Step per, ACC and Vel infomation for axis 0 (x).
i know that Information is shown for the other axis in Motor Tuning, dont ask me why.

so i would start with a new fresh Profile, Setup axis should not take very Long.

You were correct. I had the power supply on the wrong side. I feel so dumb.

Hooked it up correctly and the weird thing is nothing changed.

X still works. The other three axis do not work.

So, did I burn out two boards with them being hooked up backwards? And why would this stupid thing work with the X-axis no matter how it's hooked up? I know this is stepping outside of the Mach3 software questions at this point and do appreciate the help I've received.

so have you tried to swap X an Y Step/Dir Connection on your breakout board ?

have you configured enable pin14 now ?

can you please post your XML ?

your axis dro's are changing on Screen if you move the other axis ?
