Help for configuring Mach 3 for CNC Coquerie
« on: October 11, 2012, 06:40:28 AM »
Hi all,

I introduce myself, my name is Nicolas I'm French so desolate in advance for my English, I use google translation to write to you.

I have a CNC machine Coquery (http://cnc25.free.fr/machines/mecagcoqueryv2.htm) with a map CNC611 (http://ideegeniali.altervista.org/progetti/?p=kitcnc&l=en).

so I download mach 3 to test the software I intend to buy later in French if everything works well.

For the moment I download the latest version of mach 3, I install and I restart the computer.

Now I want to configure the software on my machine but I do not know where to begin.

If any of you can help me in setting the software.

I already look at several French tutorial on setting mach 3 but it is never the same so I'm lost.

Thank you in advance for your help

Hi Niroleta,

It may be best to email Paolo (paolo@ideegeniali.it) to obtain a copy of the CNC611 Manual, if you do not already have it, as that appears to detail the Mach3 settings you need.

Hi Niroleta,

I would need to see a copy of the manual to determine the correct pins for the configuration. If you could email me the Italian copy I will try to translate it.

Download a copy of the CNC611.xml (from your previous link) then copy that .xml into your Mach3 folder. That will take care of the configuration settings

You then need to create a new desktop shortcut to Mach3 (or modify your existing one) so that the Target is something like C:\Mach3\Mach3.exe/pCNC611
This new shortcut should then be used to launch Mach3.

Hi Niroleta,

The Velocity and Acceleration in Config / Motor Tuning may need adjusting for optimum performance, but it may be OK as it is.
You need to check your E-Stop and Limit Switches are connected to the correct pins and function correctly.

Other that that you should be on your way to making great things.  ;)

Good fortune with your new machine.

It is ok for the machine configuration manual work.

I would now like to address the "steps per" how to calculate this value?




the problem is that I have a 10 tooth pulley at the output of the electric motor
which transmits the force to a belt pulley 34 teeth.

how to calculate?

how to calculate?

Hi Niroleta,

That’s the next thing to do when you have the machine moving under Mach3 control.

Rather than repeat the instructions here…

If you refer to Section 5.5 of the Mach3 Manual http://www.machsupport.com/documentation.php (I assume the French Manual has the same Section numbers) this details how steps are calculated manually. Then Section 5.5.2.3 details the automated process which is probably best for your machine with it’s reduction pulleys and drive belts etc. This process is then repeated for each axis in turn.

Hope this helps.
