General Mach Discussion / Urgent help needed. Setting up MACH 3
« on: January 14, 2013, 09:15:22 AM »
Hi,

I am setting up a CNC machinefor my workplace. It has run using mach3 before but is now using a new drive system and PC.
I am a complete newbie to CNC and require help setting up.

The machine I am using is :

http://microdream.co.uk/dell-optiplex-gx520-desktop-pc-pentium-4-ht-3-2ghz-1024mb-ram-80gb-hard-drive-dvd-rom-windows-xp-professional-sp3-preinstalled.html?gclid=CKyf9rnJlLQCFSTLtAodFTwAhQ

And the system with which I hope to drive my CNC with is the System4C from DIYCNC.COM. Which I have assembled but currently have not plugged in as I just wish to test Mach3 first.

I have downloaded the trial version of MACH and at this stage would like to test that my motors will turn.
My CNC machine is not plugged in yet, I wanted to test MACH 3 first but am unable to use my keyboard arrow keys to jog or change the values in the xyz axis

Where lies my problem?

Any advice

Please help :-\
