FAQs / Motor Tuning / Re-install Mach3
« on: August 14, 2016, 04:51:02 PM »
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?


FAQs / Zero Tool not reading allowance
« on: July 18, 2016, 10:21:21 PM »
nHappily marching along with getting my zero tool working, but will not hit top of surface when I go to zero.  Its off 3 - 7mm, at different times, after touch off.
I'm using Mach3 USB, Windows 10, 64 bit, on a SaleCnc 6090 machine, with a zero puck 10mm thick.
I downloaded the HiddenScript from GuruBrew, just to get the tool to retract when it touched off. But when I hit go to 0, it was stopping above workpiece.  I zero-ed
tool above puck before touch off, and  I had changed the script for tool thickness to 10mm.
I went back to the internet, and saw where there was a script for Mach3, but I have not been able to delete the GuruBrew script...
I even tried to trick the script by playing with the thickness setting for 2 hours to zero in, but the machine started going down after touch off?

In addition, how does the Tool Offsets Page Settings fit in with this Hidden Script?

Could someone explain what Safe Z is, what it does, and where should it be set?

I an trying to run a sample gcode for the first time, after just setting up a XJ6090 cnc router from Salecnc, with Mach3.  It produced a miniture model, so how do I change scale to correct size?
