Newbie looking for help
« on: January 30, 2011, 10:06:23 PM »
I'm a retired hobby nut that is getting close to purchasing my first CNC router. I installed Mach 3 on my computer as part of getting ready and am trying to get a basic understanding of its operation; however I'm not really sure how to go about it. The first thing I ran into on the screen was the Reset Button with a scrolling message that says "Emergency Mode Active". Below that is a message that says "E-Stop Requested".
Any help/guidance I can get would be greatly appreciated.

Jim

Hi Jim, welcome to the group.
I suggest that you first take some time and familiarize yourself with the Install Manual.
http://www.machsupport.com/docs/Mach3Mill_Install_Config.pdf
It does a very good job of walking you through the basics and is sure to get you going in the right direction.
It is a valuable resource. Of course, if you have trouble understanding anything there, folks here on the forum will be glad to help.
Regards,
Russ
