General Mach Discussion / Limit Switches
« on: April 27, 2014, 06:48:45 AM »
Hi there, to-day I tried to set the limit switches on my 3 axis mill, they seem to work o.k. except when the switch is activated the machine stops and winds back,BUT it does not wind back far enough to de-activate the switches, is there a setting somewhere to have the software to take a few more steps to clear the switches?

General Mach Discussion / MACH 3 MANUAL MYSTERY
« on: April 07, 2014, 11:58:24 PM »
Hi there, I just had a look at the Mach 3 manual on the Newfangled web site, and notice that there are only 106 double sided pages, I have downloaded and printed a manual about two years ago and I ended up with 153 pages single sided, which divided by two equates to about 77 and a 1/2  double sided pages, my question is has the manual been added to or have I lost some pages??

General Mach Discussion / Artsoft Logo
« on: February 11, 2014, 10:08:38 PM »
Hi there, my computer running Mach3 died a slow death, I had to organise a new computer and load Mach3 again, in doing so I noticed the Artsoft icons did not appear on the desk top all I got was a square with a picture of a mill, is this normal or did I do something wrong in the installation?

Hi there, there are a lot of free vector graphics on the net, can some one please help me and explain how to convert vector to g-code, e.g. what software is easiest and the steps needed to go from V to G.

Thanks in advance

« on: November 04, 2013, 08:59:26 PM »
Hi there, just wondering how many people use Dolphin and Mach 3, I had a quick play around with the Dolphin software as a demo..... is it worth the $ value that they are asking for it?  and how easy it to learn  (maybe master in the future???).

General Mach Discussion / GREMLINS in the works
« on: August 11, 2013, 07:03:21 AM »
Hi there, after solving the PC problem by buying another PC, I have found some "gremlins in the works", I keep getting a re-set signal when running Mach3, error report shows "driver watch dog triggered" or "limit switch triggered" I can understand it if the cnc machine was even turned on but it is not even connected!!!! any one out there with any thoughts or ideas I would greatly appreciate hearing from you.

General Mach Discussion / To XP or not to XP
« on: August 08, 2013, 08:51:01 AM »
Hi there, I just had a break down with my computer, it was an old PC with a printer port, when I asked about up- dating my computer to a new one I was told that to buy a new PC with a printer port was nearly impossible because the new PC have USB ports instead, and  XP may not be compatible with the faster machines, my question is will Mach3 run on windows7 no Vista without any problems? or do I look for another second hand PC which will use XP if a copy is still available?
