need help with config
« on: December 29, 2012, 10:45:53 AM »
I have been running my machine with Turbo CNC for about three years and decided to run it with Mach3.

Home built machine using Hobby CNC board.

No matter what I try I can not get the steppers to work.

I have watch the set up videos a number of time and can not figure out what I am doing wrong.

Printer port is set
X Y Z pins are set
no stop are on

Below is a screen shot of what I have in the diagnostics screen and in the upper left hand corner none of the X Y Z lights are green and in all the set up videos they are red, No matter what I do I can not get them to turn red. ?????

Thanks for your help.

X Y Z LEDs will be red until you home, then they will go green.
Attach your xml and I will see if there is an issue with it.

Thanks for the replay but got it working, Had the velocity set to high but not happy with the speed, Can only get about 60" a min without it skipping.

Still can not get the lights to go green.

acceleration is likely too high.
