Mach3 folder and double click


it is  ok    is straight

I checked it in different ways. I set in Sherline mode  ,also cuts the longer parts , so I'm sure , I am not able to cut out such pasrt as I have in the project  . maybe with a different cnc  driver I mean gecko 203v and c11  . This problem is not only with this machine, it was with every my machine. I have a question for people who have a driver540 if ever  have set gecko540 perfect whit  mach 3

I think if it was a common problem with the G540 the internet would be full of stories about it. Maybe you should contact Gecko and see what they have to say.

and that  is  the  problem because they say the do not know anything about MACH3 and setup.

I know I have to change the driver and see what will be  after . hood I request of you if you know some who jet driver ok? hood I have a question for you? if you know some driver that will be the best

I dont see anything wrong in your xml and your steps per unit are correct according to the info you provided so I am inclined to think it is a mechanical issue or possibly noise bu that is unlikely if it is repeatable.
May be an idea to contact Jeff Birt as he sells the G540 and has set up a lot of machines using Mach and the G540.

There are literally thousands of people using G540s with ZERO problems.  It is one of the most popular, and robust, stepper controllers out there, and I have yet to hear a single complaint that was not tracked down to improper installation or configuration, or outright abuse.  I can assure you, whatever your problem is, it is NOT the G540.  There is something else wrong in your system, be it mechanical or electrical.

Komar old buddy it may be time for you to take the next step. IF you cannot Trust the software/hardware and refuse to believe it could be your design THEN it may be time to step UP to the commercial side of things and invest in say a new FANUC controller/ ac servo hardware setup. NOW I know for a FACT that they can do the job for you.

But then again so can the Mach3/G540 here ??? Use it EVERY day on a 50"X60" table HUM?????  but you seem to NOT want to believe that part (;-).

Best of luck to you, (;-) TP

The G540 has been in production for quite a few years, and, as I said, has been used by thousands of people.  Do you honestly believe NONE of them EVER checked the accuracy of their machines?  Are you THAT confident that the problem can't possibly be in your machine, that you're willing to believe all those thousands of satisfied customers are basically idiots?  If so, then I urge you to ditch the G540, spend a lot of time and money on G203s,  and then when you find you're still in the same position as you are right now, perhaps you'll be a little more willing to listen.

"volts is ok, 3.5 for each 2,4,6,8" - I have no idea what that means....  3.5V?? Where??  2,4,6,8??  What is that??
