I have the same problem. We just bought a Mach 3 KX3 milling machine. If I program 3.00 in the y, the table moves only .500, same for all three axis. Can you please explain how to fix this. Thanks you

Where did you get the Mach3 install from, if you have MachLoader icon on your desktop run that, there should be a KX3 profile.

We bought it from a dealer in Maine. We installed it ourself.  It wasn't hard to get it installed. It just seems like the software is not working right.

You need yo ask the dealer for the Mach3 XML profile for your machine if it is not listed in the machloader program.

OK, to correct this we need to know the pitch of the lead/ball screw the ratio of the motor to the screw (direct drive 1:1), the number of steps pre rev of the motor (normally 200) the setting of the stepper driver, 1(full), 2(half), 4(quarter) ,8(eighth), etc and if you intend to work in inches or mm
