Mach4 General Discussion / Windows 10 Closing Mach4
« on: February 22, 2018, 10:03:44 AM »
I have mach4 run on a windows 10 controlling a CNC Router. when I running gcode mach4 will shut down in the middle of a cut. It is just like you clicked the X up in the corner. No errors given, I can click on the mach icon on the desktop and start it back up. Everything working with no errors,  then I run some code and it will close the program again never the same time 1 min maybe 5 min in. Windows is doing this I think. Any help would be great, scraping parts is not fun.

Can there be a way of following top of your sheet? I have to cut a 1/16ā€ slot .080 deep in a flat sheet of PVC 4ā€™ X 5ā€™. With turn and lines. The sheet has a change of .003 to .006 in thickness. I need to try and hold .080 as close as I can.

Just a long shot

Iā€™m using mach4 and pmdx 424 board. When I probe down with a G31 to touch the set plate, when it touch the plate it will jump maybe .010. Not sure way this is happening. It does not do it all the time 1 out of 3 times. It will continue with the rest of the routine but the dro in mach4 will be off.
Any help would be great.
