General Mach Discussion / Re: Probing Wizard
« on: February 12, 2019, 08:27:05 PM »
Well I wanted the one that creates a point cloud, I can lay an object on the router table and probe  XY&Z. YES I have been searching and nothing comes up. That is why I asked the question on the Mach3 Forum. I have the Probe It one and it works fine, creates a nice DXF file. But I still need the 2.5 D probe capabilities.

Since the board has been down for repairs and the Search engine out for months I have not checked back in.

Why make the existing Forum useless for the past two months for a upgrade???  Make the site off line and get it working Then disable and move over.  Pretty basic stuff.

But Warp 9 ESS  wants a certain version of Mach , so I guess it will be trial and error.  I do know Corel Draw x6 loads and seems to work fine. Thanks Gerry.

General Mach Discussion / Mach3 on Windows 10 Pro

I know this has been covered before, BUT since Search has been disabled here we go. 

Using Mach3 with Warp 9  ESS just fine on Windows 7 Pro laptop a Lenovo but would like to free up that computer for another rask. I have a Dell Latitude E5510 with Windows 10 Pro 64 bit I would like to use instead. Before I waste my time, Is this an option?    Running a 4x4 ft router table.

Yes I have been running CNC on my cinfigured laptops for years, not Win 10 however.

General Mach Discussion / Re: Home slave with Master + Gantry squaring

Typically the long axis is the X, and this is usually the axis that the gantry travels along. Some manufacturers like to call them the opposite, but I think the axis along the gantry should always be the Y axis, with the X being the dual drive axis.

People typically call the gantry the X axis when they operate the machine facing the gantry. I operate mine from the side.

   Both mine are the same distance.   X for me has always left right and Y front back on every machine I have owned. The machine I have now is the same? The software  XML file came in preset that way and it works.

If you just set your Origin in VCarve to be the Center of the work it solves a lot of problems.  On your work piece on the table just measure out the Center where you want the code to begin, move your spindle over to that point Zero X & Y,  make sure your Z is correct Zero and hit START.  Try it.
