General Mach Discussion / MaxNC and backlash
« on: April 26, 2006, 06:59:50 PM »
I am trying to set up and old MaxNC10 board ( it is from the year 1999, not one of the 1018A/B boards mentioned in a help documant I read) with Mach3.
I haven't got backlash compensation to work yet, just delays/pauses in code excecution.

I have read some posts about Mach3 not compensating for backlash in wave mode.

Can someone confirm this?
Is there any mods to the board that can be done?
Thanks

General Mach Discussion / Re: MaxNC not working!! No movement.

I am just starting with my maxnc also.
When the mach3 program was runing the motors were energised ( the handwheels were stiff)
My problem was the estop. I went into the config screen and changed the default setting for active hi/lo.

General Mach Discussion / Optimisation procedure on install of Mach3
« on: April 19, 2006, 07:31:53 PM »
I am doing a clean install of XP on a PC dedicated to my CNC
I am doing the optimisation procedure from the file called "optimisation%20XP"

I have a few questions:
1- I have set " Remote procedure call (RPC)" to automatic as instructed
my question is:
 "Remote procedure call (RPC) Locator" should that be disabled?
( I know nothing about these things, but is seems to me, based on their description, that they should be set the same.

2-  I tried to update windoes as the optimsation file instructed. The windows site said that I should set " Automatic Updates" to Auto and also set "BITS" to manual., I did and then did my updates ( none were required)

my question is:
  Do I leave the two settings as is, or put them back as per the optimisation file?
3-  will I be able to get onto my network? I would only plug in the cat5 cable when I want to get onto my home lan for updates etc.


thanks

I am doing a clean install of XP on a PC (P3 733mhz, 256 meg ram, 16 gig HDD, a little slow I know) dedicated to my CNC

I chose NTFS
should I have chosen FAT32?
