Ok your xml is totally different from that document, I am heading home now but will be online again in an hour or two and will see if I can set up a xml for you to try.

OK give this a try, just save it to your Mach3 folder and then start Mach via the loader and choose the 5Axis profile.

Hello thanks for the try but I am afraid the motors and mach3 act exactly like it did before. I see that the new xml-file is like tree times bigger than the first one but I don't see any changes in the settings, what did you change?

I changed the pin asignments for the X, Y Z A and B axis for bothe Step and Dir.
When you load that xml do you see the name 5Axis down in the lower right of the screen/

That is strange that it acts exactly the same, will look at the doc again and see if I can find anything.

Did you change the settings in port and pins / motor outputs?

Because this settings are the same as in the xml-file I send to you, so maybe thats the reason.
