Looks like you are getting close.  ;)

Right click on the xml file in your Mach3 directory and from the menu select copy
Right click on the desktop and from the menu select paste
Right click on the xml file on the desktop and from the menu select rename
Change name to bensxml2.xml and hit return

Attach this file to your post.

This should work, I think  :D

Ben, I dont think that is the right file.  When I open it up, its a blank XML with nothing active and no pin assignments.

If you open mach 3 and are using the stand screen set, then look at the bottom right corner where it says "PROFILE"  this is the name of the XML file you are using.  Browse to your mach 3 folder and find a file with that same name.xml

Ben where are you located?  maybe we can do a call together and we can see if we can get it figured out?  Do you have internet connection on the mach3 pc?

Hi Ben,

I had every confidence you would get there in the end.  ;D

Do you have any information at all, on setting up your controller ?? (CD or anything) I am trying to confirm the step and direction pin configuration for each axis is correct.

Hi everybody, finally l managed to solved my problem. The reasons why my cnc machine Y-axis didn't move at all is because of the parallel port of my old pentium 4 pc :) I replace it with a new one and my problem solved. Thank you everyone for your precious opinion, especially Tweakie  :)
Now l got the other question to ask. I using Artcam Jewelry to create some 2D and 3D design, my problem is l don't know which file l should export to Mach3 as my G-code.

Hi Ben,

I am pleased you have sorted the problem and that your machine is now running OK.

Sorry, I don't know anything about Arcam Jewel-smith (except that it's purchase price is perhaps beyond my financial budget).  ;D

Hi, Ben,

I would certainly think for the money spent on that software, ArtCam would have a Post Processor program included or at least help from their "support" or possibly their forum?
