Mach3 No movement from X Y Z
« on: January 30, 2009, 08:43:56 PM »
Hello I'm new to cnc building. I need a lot of help lol. I have set up a controll board and three drivers for the stepper motors and all looks to be wired fine but when I goto test run with the motors hooked up but not installed for the mach3 mill nothing is happening. When I run them under mach3 plasma the X and Y work fine but not the Z any help so I can run under mach3 mill. Thx.

  Hi ebc12451,  in mach mill,    under config, - ports and pins,- motor tuning -- enable x,y,z
   see if that helps
  good luck, Glenn :)

Glen thanks for the help but I just found out by trial and error that the dirlow active and the step low active had to be enabled it now seems to be working.
