Author Topic: Unable to access Screw Mapping OR Motor Tuning from config menu.  (Read 3537 times)

I've been using Mach3 to run my home built 3axis router and suddenly today while I was trying to re-calibrate my axis (found some runout) I was
unable to access some of the items in the CONFIG menu namely:

MOTOR TUNING
CALIBRATE SPINDLE
SCREW MAPPING

I click on them and nothing happens. No dialog, no warning. Nada.

Has anyone had this problem? I really need to access those controls and I don't want to have to start from scratch.

Thanks for any help!

Craig.

Happy Making

I will load that version with your xml and see if I have problems.

Afraid I cant find it on my computer, think it was on an old drive I no longer have in. Also looked on the ftp and earliest there is 1.84 so I will try that and see.

Seems to be working fine here so not sure what to suggest other than possibly upgrading Mach to a newer version. I wouldnt try 066 as I and some others have had issues with it, so go to the ftp and use one from 057 to 062.
