« on: August 31, 2011, 07:27:35 PM »
I finally got hardware installed and got the servos to tune. Now I can't get mach3 to move the servos.  I have the pins set correctly. But dunno what else to check. I have been going to mdi and inputing a g01 command, but nothin.  Thanks

Do the DROs move in Mach when you command a move?

If you open Mach look at the lower right at the name of the profile then go to your main Mach3 folder and find a file of that name with an xml extension. Copy that to your desktop and change its name to farmertwingolf.xml and then use the additional options button on the reply page to attach.

Ok I will definitely do that this evening.  I got the pc with a licensed version of mach from a guy that had a 7 x 7 router so it could be set up for his.

You are using a pirated  Mach licence, that is not the reason you are not getting motion but it is the reason I wont help any more.

farmertwingolf,

Buy the license - it's good value for money - Hood's technical support alone is worth many times the license fee. http://www.machsupport.com/purchase.php
