How do i set that. Is it as easy as going to the feed rate and chnging it to 1. Brett I had re read the manual and it is supposed to be 2 revs per second. Sorry for the mis-information.

1.8 deg 200 steps per 5 start acme 10 threads per in imperial units (Inches). I used the calculator on the site to figure the steps per when I had the other board using 1/8 micro stepping and it was 3200 steps per. changed over to this board and now I am at 4000.

 He tried to maximize the window. He is pretty Savvy at computers. I'll have him check the settings you suggested and send the XML tonight. What would be the reason to rename the file? Just wanting to know.

A friend of mine has a Mach3 demo version installed on his computer. There is no parallel port. I will generate a file of something he wants and run it on my system and view the tool path to see the representation of what would be produced. Its working fine on my setup. His however is having a couple of hic-ups. the first problem is that Mach 3 is only displayed in the upper 3rd of his monitor. no matter what he does it is full screen horizontal and 1/3 in the verticle. the second problem, and this may be related to his video issue, is after the g code runs he can not see an image on the toolpath. I did find out that he did not emulate my config, so he is running at what ever the default is. could that be the problem with not having a part on the tool path window.

Thanks Tweakie!!

I know this is in here some place but The search function just make the icon spin. even after 4 minutes nothing is popping up. Am I missing a setting.

Just got my license two months ago and when I installed it to the demo version I had I didn't upgrade the version then. I'm ready to do that and i need to know... will my current configuration be saved and ............I am allowed to do that right.
