Where to send the file?
It's a chopped version which only runs for 10 mins.

I am already using enhanced pulseing.
The reason i stick to mach2 is because mach3 requires such a powerful computer,And i have never had problems in the past.
It just seems to be this application?

Also the friend that also tried to run the program is running mach3 lockdown.

General Mach Discussion / CV Problems / Losing steps
« on: June 02, 2007, 05:23:22 PM »
I am having problems with mach2 and cv and i was just wondering if anybody could maybe advise.
My gantry router has been running for a couple of years and i run mach2 v7.5 (old i know but it has always worked).

Anyway i produced a file from artcam to engrave a coin (approx 21mm dia).
If i run the file and go back and check the z position it is .3 - .4mm out of position and always upover.
So i spent all day re-tuning the motors only to find that no-matter what accel i use the machine is alway out the above amount and alway upover.

So i sent the file to a friend that has mach and a milling machine,Now this mill is rock solid and never loses steps.
But sure enough whhen he runs it he is alway out .2mm - .3mm upover.

After much debate i turned the cv off and the machine never lost a step.
I have spent many hours discussing this problem with art over the years,We always seem to get the machine to run but every now and again a new file throws a spanner in the works.

Is there anything i could do in artcam to help,Or mach2?

Auto screen enlarge zooms in to your items on screen so if you only have items in the top left hand corner then it zooms in to them.
try putting something in the top left and bottom right which means it will zoom to the whole screen.

Hope this helps

You Will have auto screen enlarge turned on in mach3.
It's in the state settings (just un tick it)

Hi

Yes one of Arts very few bad habits,he did update/bugfix without altering the ver no.
It drove me up the wall this one until art fixed it.

Hi

I reported this to Art just before he went to Galisberg and he fixed it,it was a bug in mach3.
The latest download fixes it.
