Mach 3 Spindle Problem
« on: June 11, 2012, 10:11:01 PM »
Hi guys,

I really need your help. I have a K2CNC router with a simple on/off relay. I have the right parameters set. I can turn the spindle on and off with the Mach 3 spindle on switch no problem. But when I MDI in M3 or run M3 in a program it does not work! Help!

Thank you, mate! This is the original profile sent to me. What I did to get the mach 3 software spindle on button to work was to change the ports and pins spindle setup m3 m4 outputs from 2 & 1 to 1 & 2.

It may need an "s" word. Spindle speed. Try something like:
M3 S30000
