General Mach Discussion / Mach3 & zero probe - safety switches
« on: May 09, 2017, 09:32:04 PM »
 ??? Bear with me, I'am thinking outside the box here!

I am using a uc100 usb to my control box. Why can't I use the parallel port to wire the zero probe and safety switches. If I cut the end of an old parallel cable and only use the post that would normally be used for probe and switches. All the wiring diagrams that I have seen show pins in the parallel port.
I realize you can't use both the parallel and uc100 because Mach3 won't let you, but if I am only using pins that are extra anyways, could it be done.

Has anyone ever tried this?

General Mach Discussion / Mach 3 screen

What am I doing wrong ?  When I import g-code from makercam the image is nothing but a big blob of pink. I go toolpath and it is the same, do cycle start and it goes around in circles. I have watched video's ( oldgeezergeek ) did the same albert jpg., followed all the same steps andstill ended up with a blob.
I own Mach3, is not demo !!!!!


General Mach Discussion / Auto zero wiring with uc100 adapter
« on: May 01, 2017, 07:55:08 AM »
Is there any instructions in wiring probe with uc100 being used instead of p/p. Also it would help if I was for dummies . I have looked everywhere and either I am wording it incorrectly or I need more help than I think
Thanks Chuck

General Mach Discussion / Scaling Mach3 imported dxf files
« on: April 24, 2017, 08:34:00 PM »
I have Mach3 and Meshcam. I have bought dxf files off eBay and imported, I seem to have no problems with Meshcam, BUT, when I try cutting I end up with a profile of about 2" square. The dxf files are around 200,000 in I want to cut on a 10" square. Ends up in one corner. I Ave read about everything I can find on scaling and am totally confused.
I would greatly appreciate any help.

I have the demo version of mach3 loaded on my computer. I know the limitations, but can I import dxf files without another software like Vectric, I'm trying to learn this thing on the fly with tutorials. Help please
