hello everyone . my name is frank. My school has a 5 axis cnc mini mill with mach 3 software and with no home switches. I'm trying to learn how to operate that cnc mill,that no one in our department knows how to use. I am having a hard time learning how to use mach 3.

Hi All I arrived here while trying to get more info around converting my emco 5pc to wrok with Mach. I'm trying to rewire it and am a little confused with it all and so may well be in the wrong place. pleas e forgive me if this is so. But I'm hoping someone here has done the conversion to run mach.
i have made my own cnc router and are now on to my second build.

thanks
Brent

Hi Brent,

Welcome to the forum.

There are a number of posts relating to the Emco 5pc - perhaps these will be of interest to you - just add emco 5pc in the search box  http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php?action=search2

If you have any specific questions please post them as a new topic in the General Mach Discussion section where they will receive the best coverage.

Hi Bob,

Welcome to the forum.

If you post your question, giving as much details about your machine / setup as possible, as a new topic in the general Mach discussion section I am sure someone will be able to help.

Hello Huck, welcome to the group!
It's gonna take a bit more than "luck".
I'll assume you went through the manual and the installation instructions step by step, so which particular aspect are you having issues with ?

Now that you have made your intro, please post specifics in the General Mach Discussion section.

Again, welcome aboard !

Regards,
Russ

Hi all, I found the forum after my lovely but crazy gf bought a little 5 axis table top mill from......yes.....China ;D not one to argue I am now tasked with linking this mill up to Mach3 and then machining whatever crazy ideas she may have next ;D

I don't think there is a mach3 licence with the mc, so that will need to be resolved, a desk top pc is on its way at some point this week, think the gf got windows 7 on it? not sure, but all will come out in the wash.

I'm a retired cnc miller turner grinder, Aerospace, F1, MOD, all the normal suspects in UK subcontract machining, so more used to a 5 axis twin pallet Mazak with at least 40 tools than a small big boys toy, but it does look fun :)

Anyway, I'm sure I'll have a bunch of questions coming up so thought I'd say hello first :)

Regards, Phil.

Hi all, I'm Radu and i'm researching building a 4' x 8' cnc router for a woodshop.


I was wondering if Mach3 has the capability to drive 2 stepper motors per side of X axis ( 2 pinions per rack for reduced backlash, electrically preloaded ).




That would be 4 motors for the X axis.

 Motor A would drive in one direction while motor B would have less torque (dragging) to keep the pinion engaged.

When switching direction, the motors would switch  also to B driving and A preloading.



Should i start a thread for this?

Thanks,
Radu
