CNC drivers fighting...
« on: November 05, 2009, 09:07:55 PM »
Has anyone experienced issues with having two CNC control programs on the same machine?  We are thinking that the drivers from each program are not getting along and causing noise which is making the steppers wiggle and move but no movement is seen on the DROs.

Are you running two different control programs or do you mean multiple installations of Mach on the same machine?

Two different programs.  The first program that came with the router was Liberty CNC.

To get the best results from Mach, it is like Rich has said, you should use a dedicated PC running Mach and nothing else. This way no problems will be experienced.
