General Mach Discussion / Re: No Pulse Frequency!
« on: December 04, 2008, 05:39:43 PM »
Removed the driver manually.  Restarted the computer.  Reinstalled the 3.042 version.  Reinstalled SpecialDriver. Restarted Computer.  Same results as before.  DriverTest runs, Mach does not.  Any other ideas?

To manually uninstall do I just delete the mach.sys file in /win/system32? (Or the directory it is found in?)

Thanks Hood. 

I tried installing 3.042.020 with the parallel driver and both DriverTest and Mach would not register a pulse frequency.  I ran SpecialDriver afterwards and got DriverTest to register a pulse frequency but still no response in Mach.  I reinstalled 2.63 and it is running fine once again.  I can keep using 2.63, but it going to bug me forever as to why this new version does not work.   Anyone else have any other ideas?

Tried a few more things. 
Version 2.63 works fine using SpecialDriver.  Pulse Frequency runs at my setting of 35 khz.
If I do not install Parallel port driver for version 3.042.020 then under Pulse Frequency I get "simulate".  I run SpecialDriver and Pulse Frequency goes to 0.  Thanks for any help.  Roger

I've tried looking for info on 0 Pulse Frequency in Mach, but could not find any posts.  I apologize if this is a common question. 
I've just install the latest lockdown Mach 3 R3.042.020.  I had version 1.84 working great before, but wanted to stay up-to-date with revisions.  My system is an Intel Celeron D 2.6 Ghz on a ASUS P5S800-VM motherboard with 700+ Mb ram running WinXP with service pack 3.  I've updated all the drivers and bios. 
I've got windows stripped down and had version 1.84 working great.  Upon installing R3.042.020 I can run DriverTest after running SpecialDriver and Mach takes control and shows pulses per second.  It runs the test and completes.  As a side note, if I try to run DriverTest using OriginalDriver, it does not output a pulse per second.  I've always used SpecialDriver to get Mach to run on this machine and both DriverTest and Mach used to run fine. 
Now DriverTest runs fine like I've mentioned, but when I run Mach under "Diagnostics" Pulse Frequency is 0.  If pulse frequency is 0 nothing works.  Why is pulse frequency 0?   What other settings, besides SpecialDriver,  affect pulse frequency?   Thanks.  Roger

General Mach Discussion / Z axis on/off
« on: May 26, 2006, 03:15:14 PM »
I am a new Mach3 user trying to figure out how to make this program work.  I've got my X-Y axis working on my router.  I can turn the spindle on and off.  I am running into a problem though, with the Z axis.  The Z on this new router is an air cylinder so it is either on or off, but my G-code is coming from being run on a 3 axis CNC (G0 Z.060).  How can I get Z to "turn on" when Z plunges and "turn off" when it retracts.  All Z Values in the code are either .060 deep or 0 (Reason why I can fix Z depth on this new router).  Any thoughts would be appreciated!  Roger
