Hi Chip
I corrected the file and it runs fine now, thank you.

Trying to lern subroutine, when upload this file to Mach3, M99 is not showing and program stops running without calling subroutine. Can't understand what is wrong.

Are there any plug in for Mach 3 that can be used to verify G-codes , just to see mill cutter removing material line by line in 3D; for kind of beginner it is just reassuring to see simulation made on a material before running it live.

This is what I do at the moment when using Mach 3 mill. As I am new to CNC, I find it difficult to follow lines on the tool path window, becouse I don't know where the part (work, or whatever it is properly called) I am cutting from is. It looks better in Mach3 turning, but I suppose I’ll get used to it.
G-verifying is out of question just now, got a price 20 minutes ago - $800, can’t justify for retrofitted mill and occasional work.
After I got the price I realised that those lines in tool path window are actually not that bad.

There are plenty G-code verifying software packages around, and I was offered one to try out. Will I have any benefits using one before loading into Mach 3.
I am rather new to CNC, just complotted converting of Dyna 2800 and trying to establish what other programmes I need to help me to run my mill with Much 3. I can write basic G-codes and cut simple shapes.
Thank you

2.3Amp steppers from Escap. They are 1.8.
There are 8 wires coming out of each motor.

Hi Fernando
Thank you for clarifying.

General Mach Discussion / which drive
« on: August 28, 2006, 07:26:30 AM »
I am converting small mill (Dyna 2800) to run from MACH3. My steppers are 8 wires 200 steps. Can you suggest suitable drivers to buy. Will it be better to get G-rex (as far as I understand 1 board drives up to 6 axes) or  3 separate drivers, one for each motor.
Thank you

 Hi Wayne
Looks very good.
What about tool changer, any progress?
