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

Hi all you gurus,
Name is Frank and I live in Australia.
I am an absolute newbee to CNC routing. Just bought myself one of those Chinese (2nd. hand) 3020T machines and I am in the process of setting it all up. Only intend to use this for making PCB's.
I would imagine that I am going to ask a few questions, that I cannot find in previous posts, so please bear with me. Anyhow, I'll be around and looking for guidance.
I suppose that I need to buy the Mach3 program as I think that he Mach3 supplied with the machine tells me it's for demo purposes only. Can I have some advise on that, please.
Best wishes to all
Frank (not really cranky (yet)).

Hi Radu,

Welcome to the forum.

Yes please start a new thread (new topic in the General section) this is a most interesting idea and I think may be a quite a challenge to resolve.
