Author Topic: New guy here. Hi ya! Question on new install and jogg just to see DRO read  (Read 4140 times)

0 Members and 1 Guest are viewing this topic.

I don't have a machine hooked up yet, but should n't I be able to see a change in reading of the DRO?  I'm going through the download/install/configure manual and don't see anything telling me I'm doing something incorrectly??  Help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Rooney

Check the Jig control is switched on, main page in the middle near the bottom if I remember.

Thanks, Hood.

Nother question......if I have the parallel port driver installed with no machine hooked up, can I fry my parallel port?

Thanks,
Rooney

No, your port will be fine :)
Hood
Thank Goodness!

Thanks, will report on success or failure.
Figured it out( Or did I?) by accident.   I don't think that jog was turned off.  I wasn't properly configured :)(watched the video instead of following the manual) .....or the multiple times (3) of re-installing Mach3 fixed  my problem????  Whatever...I can jog and run a program with nothing connected yet.  Stay tuned for more questions stemming from inexperience.

Thanks, Hood!

 good to hear but please post further questions in the General part of the forum as more people are likely to see them and you will likely get quicker responses :)
Hood
Will do.

Thanks again, Hood.
