Tweakie,
 Even with that code, I still can’t get any voltage changes on C62 -RJ 8   

 I have tried different ports and different pens with still no voltage changes out of the RJ8.

 Hopefully Arturo will have some  suggestions, he normally does.

Thanks,
Chuck

 Still can’t get it to work with this revised G code.

Arturo  said the RJ 45–8 on the C 62 board is for imputs and not outputs.  So I’m still trying to find out how to tie into the C 62 board

Tweakie,
 I finally got everything configured properly and I can get the laser to turn on and off  using M10 and M11.

Recently somewhere I was reading information,most likely from you, on one of the forums, were they were discussing using spindle speed for Laser power settings.

Currently I control Laser power with a potentiometer on the Laser panel. I like the idea of being able to control it with Mach3.

 Thanks again for your help,
Chuck

Hello dear members,

I am new to this forum and also to MACH3 , i am student of EE , and want to test it for my personal hobby.

I am using windows 10 x64bit 1709, and want to test a parallel port MACH 3 hardware.

Downloaded MACH 3 demo and installed it properly , but unfortunately driver test is not working for me.
Error is:
No driver sensed is installed, Run driver test.

So is there any solution available to this error ? about driver.

PS: Was new to this forum so found this thread use full , rather than to open a new thread.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

Hi PriSim,

Mach3 will only operate via the Parallel Port if you are using a 32 bit OS with Win7 (or older). https://www.machsupport.com/software/mach3/

Unfortunately the forum Search facility has been broken for some time now - perhaps, one day, it will be fixed.

 Group,
Wel,l after getting my laser up and running perfectly using the M 10 and M 11 commands  with windows 10 ,  I went to use my machine   The other day and got an error message that the ESS (warp9) was not communicating with Mach3.

  Andy from warp9  thinks MACH3 is corrupted  and needs re-installed.

  I want to be sure I reinstall MACH3 correctly  considering the difficulty I had getting everything working properly.

 I presume I take the following steps

1.  Back up my XML files, 

2.  using the windows uninstall method, uninstall my current MACH3.

3.  Reinstall MACH3

 Is there anything else that needs to be done?

 Also, any ideas why I got this “communication problem“   Between MACH3 and WARP9 ?

Thank you,
Chuck

Hi Chuck,

Generally, it is just the .xml file which has become corrupt. Before re-installing Mach3 try rolling back to an earlier .xml (either Operator / Restore Settings or manually select an .xml from the xmlbackups folder which is from a date before the problem began [you need to change the file extension to .xml and copy it to the Mach3 folder]).

If that fails then make a secure backup of your existing Mach3 folder then do the re-install but create a new profile and enter all your settings manually rather than just copy over what could be a corrupt .xml.

Hope this helps,

Tweakie.

Hi Tweakie,
Appreciate your input,.
 I have several  profile on this machine and I have tried  each of them with  The same ESS communication error message   

 So this sounds like somethings corrupt in the MACH3 code itself   I Suppose

Thought I had closed this out but looks like I didn't
Problem was the wrong IP address for The ESS
