G540 XML File for Mach3 Turn. Please Help !!
« on: December 20, 2012, 10:08:51 AM »
Hello Everybody,

I need help with getting my Gecko G540 working with Mach 3 Turn. I am not very good at editing XLM Code. If anybody has any suggestions, I would love to hear from you.
Sincerely,
phillip~

It is best not to edit xml files directly unless you really know what settings you are changing. The way to do things is from within Mach and it will then set the data in the xml accordingly.
If you set the machine up yourself you should be able to tell which pins you have the axis set to etc so shouldnt be too much problem getting things running.

Not much input really I am afraid as only the person that connected the wires will know which pins they are connected to :(
If you have any questions about Turn itself then just ask and I am sure someone will chime in with the answer.

Hi Everybody,

Hears the answere on how to get Mach3 Lathe/Turn going with your Gecko G540 XML Config File.
1). Mach3 Loader
2). Choose the 540VFD
3). Click ok
4). Go to "view"
5). Click on "Load Screens"
6). Click on "Files of Type"
7). Select "Turn Files (*lset)   Hint = *lset = Lathe Set. Duhhhhh.  :)
8). Open 1024.lset
9). Bamm! it works.  :)

Let me know if it works for you.
