« on: September 20, 2011, 03:30:45 AM »
Hi guys,
I'm new in this forum and I really enjoy doing my project in cnc by ((build your own cnc me chain)).The project was going good until I face mach3.i have breakout board 5v with rellay. I do the connection as the video and the book description
http://www.youtube.com/user/anajonesr?ob=5#p/u/11/0D2uYMVrglw. I think the motor is connect in proper way because when I do the test as the book show the motor lock when the motor is connect to the electricity and free when it disconnect. But when I do the config for the mach3 and connent the breakout boards to my computer it not working. i do the config. as the bearkout board munnal. I test the cable and all the pins are good. I think the problem is from cofig. because I see this video and it not the same http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uglCm_qsojk . What does u think is the problem?
My computer operates with win7.

the xml file is the file that holds your config. If you open Mach and look at lower right you will see the name of the profile, look in the main Mach3 folder for a file with that name and the xml extension r=then copy it to your desktop and rename to mhd.xml Once you have done that you can use the additional options on the reply page to attach the renamed file.

That is a blank xml so it cant be the one you are using as no ports and pins are set up in it.
