help, my mach3 is stepping and not running smoothly
« on: November 24, 2009, 01:32:50 AM »
i am not sure what to call this problem but will try and describe it acurately.

i have a saved file from dolphin cad/cam that i cut yesterday and tryed to cut the same file today but there is a difference.

now, the thing runs fine but there is a 0.5-1.0" step all the way around the shape. it still runs the program but all at steps thru out the shape.

i changed nothing and are not sure on how to make this run smooth again.

thanks matt

Have you a picture showing the problem?

no, this happens when the mill is running a program.
i can rapid around with the keyboard and switch to the step mode but the program steps on its own.
