FAQs / Re: Motor Tuning / Re-install Mach3
« on: August 24, 2016, 09:17:37 PM »
Hey Guys,
After getting my Motor Tuning working, I realized my zero probe wasnt working ( after switching to new computer)  Machine
kept going down when I tried to auto zero probe.
I was checking for complete circuit, but got no digitize light on trouble shooting page.  I have checked ports and pin
imputs for probe, and have current through probe wires.  I used same button script that got it going last time.

I remember Mach3 asked me which file to use for probe somewhere in button script or editor, but havent seen that yet?

Could use some help again,

I needed to change the computer running mach3 USB ( R3.043.066) licensed.  I downloaded same version on new HP computer ( Windows 10), configured ports & pins, but when I setup Motor Tuning, there was no blue lines.  I selected X axis, when I imput veloc. and accel, they disappear if I touch slider bar.  When I imput steps and touch slider bar, veloc and accel disappear...
I have looked at old settings and see no difference, even downloaded mach3 again.  Motor outputs were the same.

I have not connected to cnc machine yet, but I was able to set up Mach3 before.
What am I missing?

Hey Guys,

Praise The Lord !

When I came back out to my machine this am and started it up, I had controll of mouse/keybd. This was good.

I was trying to find out which version of Mach3 that I downloaded, might be running on my original Mach 3 profile, unsuccessful.  So, I decided to delete the
5 lines that Gerry suggested in button script.  It Worked !   I tried to Auto Zero 4 times, it worked perfect.  Life Is Good.

By the way, how do I find which version is now running on my original profile of Mach3?

Still a few bugs to work out, but I want to go out and Auto Zero my Tool a few more times...

Thanks Again, for hanging in there for me,

I ran across the page under config. plungins, and remembered you said your maching had combined limit / homing switches.  Under Options single was checked, but
there was a dual setting, so I switched it and Low and Behold, when I rehomed it backed off the home switch, like it was suppossed to do....

Thanks Again,

Hi Guys,

I downloaded older version of Mach3, but do I have to go through the complete setup again, or how can I transfer all settings from original version?  Delete original version?
Remember, I'm just an ol' cabinetmaker...

I switched mouse and Keyboard to side usb ports and they started working again, but the usb for mach3 motion controller, only worked in the side ports to start with.  
The mouse and Keyboard were in the rear ports, and they are the ones giving me the problem, about every fifth or sixth time I use it?  Could that be hardware or software?
How do I fix it?

I am using an Acer Aspire ZC-700G All in One, 64 bit, new computer, Windows 10, to run Mach3 USB.  The HP I told you about earlier, I use for ArtCam Express.  My Bad.

I appreciate your help,

I thought I was getting the latest version when I ordered Mach3 just 2 months ago?  There were no choices then.  Is there another version I can download?

When I return home I will try deleting those lines.

I just realized when I told Highspeed that I was using G58 offset, I was mistaken.  I have been using G54.

Also, I have had intermitten problem with my mouse & keyboard completely stop working, it just did it again.  Usually, it doesnt come back until the next day startup?
