How do you change motor direction.
« on: December 19, 2012, 10:20:36 PM »
  I have x axis moving in the +X with both arrow keys.
I have Y doing the same thing.
I have Z that is dead.
Could use any help that you have.

Check that you have the correct Port & Pin allocation for Step and Direction for each axis (Config / Ports & Pins / Motor Outputs).

Still waiting on your xml for your previous post ;) Also still a lack of info on what you actually have. I have never heard of PC Card Maker as a controller or breakout board, maybe if you could attach some pictures or a link to where you got the hardware from people may be able to help.

Based on the other post, guess he decided to have an extraction.  ;D

I am neither a dentist or a mind reader so I wish him luck. Only thing I found when I did a google for info on the card he mentioned was a post on the Zone by him and there was as much info in it as here sadly.

  I am new to this so i do apologize for lack of info. ???

I will go to shop again today and try and get more info on it for you.
I too did not find any info on PC card Maker either,  that was what i was told who made card.
I worked on it from 12:30 till 111:30 at night with no luck.
Went threw Manual several time's and i mean several time's and could not find anything out.
 
Strange thing is i seen it work before 6 months ago.
When i had some help tracing threw everything yesterday i found one connection had come undone.
I learned there is a momentary button that needs to be pushed in to get the driver boards to light up green.
This X Y Z Thing is really driving me nuts, i need info on the Motor output settings but do not know where to look for info on ports and pins yet.
I will post some photos and take some more detailed one's today.
Thanks for your help.

Would it be possible to also scan the manual to a pdf and attach?

  New info:
I think the correct name of the board is: CNC 4 PC
I also know the pin out need to be checked on the Z axis.

Ok thats a good start, Arturo at CNC4PC makes quite a few different breakout boards but you should be able to find a manual for the one you have from his site.
