I would like to know how to set up additional offsets beyond G-59.


General Mach Discussion / home command gets interrupted
« on: January 21, 2011, 07:49:35 PM »
Hi Folks,
I have wired my home switchs and did not use a shielded, grounded cable as suggested. I used just single wires and they are intertwined with the motor wires in several places. When I press the "ref home" switch it takes several tries to get my mill table to the home position. The motors stop and I have to keep hitting the button.

My question: does this sound like interference on the home switches? I'm hoping it does and that my "lazy" wiring is the cause of that. Also were would you suggest I ground the shield?

Thanks for the feedback. A positive input to the Y axis moves the table closer to the operator. A negative input to the X axis moves the table to the left. So I guess I have things inverted. Can you tell me very specifically how to correct this? Thanks,

I am setting up my mill with Mach3. I've got evrything working, but the screen display reads opposite of what is actually happening on my mill table. Is there a way to invert? the data so that when I move left, the screen display will do the same?


General Mach Discussion / how to set steps per inch
« on: January 10, 2011, 06:00:33 PM »
I need help calibrating my machine. What method is used to determine steps required to travel 1 inch?

2nd question is how to increase the speed the table moves at when instructed to "go home"?


It runs exactly half speed. Wouldn't this indicate something other then a "weak pulse?" I'm stumped.

I am running a program successfully on a desktop but when I use my laptop the motors don;t run smoothly and do so at 1/2 speed. How do I fix the problem?

Dear Forum members,

I am hooking up Mach 3 to Peter Norbergs Bi-step driver.  Besides the direction and step inputs what other input connection do I need to make?

Dear Hood,
That was it! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.  What a great pleasure to get that figured out. Sorry for the trouble,
