I can only see configuration options for two, without configuration you can't use a port ;-)

They have a domain registered but it's not active at the moment, looks like a Thai startup that's plastering social media with hype prior to launching a product, it looks interesting, if they ever do launch it.

Physically check your direction signal wires between controller & drivers, I'd be tempted to get a meter on the job,

When I want to test sections of code I do it by posting the operations I wish to test from CAM.
Once all the bits are as I want them I post all operations as one block of code.

Swap the inputs to the drives and see if the error stays with Mach3 Axis or driver hardware

The vast majority of posts on this forum use Mach as a step/direction generator to a dedicated
motor controller and it is the motor controller which closes the loop.

Craig,
Standard stepper drivers output power in a way that turns the stepper incrementally but if the stepper jams the drivers keep going, there is no feedback, the loop is still open,
Regards,
Nick

I think the manual covers changing frequency settings.

I started on the same path a couple of years ago, I followed the recommendations about learning G-Code and read several guides on programming.
When I came to the point of having a functional machine in front of me I did some basic work and found that manual programming of even basic 3D (not 2.5D) parts isn't for me.
Since I bought CAD/CAM I've found it very useful to be able to scan through and have an idea what's happening and occasionally edit something but have never needed to manually code a part,

Say I did a layout in Adobe Indesign is there a converter to G code.

In short, no, you will save the artwork in a format compatible with the CAM software of your choice and generate the code with CAM.
