install problems video and motors
« on: May 31, 2009, 01:38:44 PM »
Thes have problably be answer 50 times but i'm not doing the right search.
please point me to the right threads

I've installed Mach3 on a new machine and have some problems i don't understand.
New machine is my desk unit, not the CNC driver unit.

video - how do i get the screen to streach to my 22"monitor.

When i run a Gcode file the software skips all motor movement ast light speed.  The asix counters don't change and long movement happen in ms.
Yes i've set speeds.  IT does not seem ot incriment the motor counters,
Single step shows the dispaly next move, but no attempted  actual movement

General Config page then Auto Screen Enlarge should solve your screen problem.
For the other please attach your xml and GCode and someone will have a look I am sure, if not I will when I get back in a few days.

For the 22" monitor, go to Config, General config, and check {  Auto screen enlarge  }  Restart Mach3 and this should fix your problem.

For the next question, Are you sure your setting are for inches and not in metric.

You should post your Gcode file in order to get more info,

Hope this help,

Jeff

In ports and pins, motor outputs do you have the X, Y & Z axis enabled?
