hi there
using mach 3 now for 6 months.
Got my mach3 running on a proxxon mf70 with usovo cnc kit. It did his work got some nice engravings on boxes, but after a while the Z did do strange things. Found out the uni1500 card wasnt good anymore.  
I decide to go for the gecko G540. got the hardware almost ready  XYZ going smooth now even better as before, now thinking about how to install the motor of this MF70 so i can activate it with mach3

Hi, I am Paul Degenkolb.  I have been using Mach3 for about two years, and have occasionally checked out the support forum.  I am a somewhat inactive hobbyist, with a Chinese router/mill somewhat predating the 3020 series (Sable).  I love playing with cnc toys (when I have the time, and as long as my ADD lets me keep going).  My background is a Mechanical (Aerospace Engineer) working for DOD on naval aircraft for about 16 years, and then an IT director for a structural engineering firm for somewhat longer.  I probably will not post much.  Thank you for inviting me to the forum!

Hello everyone. My name is Jake. Lets start out by saying that I am a complete armature at all of this. CNC, Mach 3, and forums are all new to me. So please forgive any of my stupidity in any of these areas, and please offer any comments or assistance when you feel it is warranted. I ended up here because I'm searching for answers. I have a "home made" CNC router built by an unnamed company/person that at this point has left me to my own devices. My CNC is put together and moving, but I have been forced to attempt configuring Mach 3 on my own. I'm fairly confident that I have fine tuned my motors using the auto feature correctly, but at this point I cannot seem to make any headway; homing, setting limits, etc... Each time I have attempted to set these various items I end up frustrated and walking away from my machine. Now I've landed here, hoping that I can receive some guidance and eventually a working machine. I will post more specific questions once I'm able to piece together in my head a good plan concerning what information I may need first. Thanks for listening. Hope not to be a burden.

Hello:
My Name is Tony.
I have worked in the semiconductor industry for about 15 years and in the USN for about 10 years before that.
I an brand new to the CNC world and bought one of those 3020 CNC desktop units from ebay.
I have not gotten it to work yet but as always try until I succeed.
Cheers

Hello All. :)

I joined this group because I'm helping another member (alloy) do a CNC upgrade on his Shizouka AN-S milling machine.  Alloy wants to use Mach3 / Galil controls.  I have about 20 years experience with Galil hardware and programming, but have minimal experience with Mach3.

I'm a semi-retired controls engineer, tool&die maker, machine designer/builder.  I've done a number of CNC conversions using both servo and stepper systems, in addition have a extensive background in motion control for other uses.  These days I just kind of putter around in my shop, turning perfectly good metal and wood into chips and saw dust.  I also spend a lot of time hanging out at The Hobby-Machinist forum.

Right now the Shizouka AN-S moves under it's own power, and we have control over the servos from the Galil Tools screen, and the MPG.  Also the DRO on the Mach3 screen works fine.  That's as far as we have gotten so far.  Next will be integrating the tool changer.

As the Shizouka AN-S project progresses, I will be asking questions as I get stuck, and will be counting on the members here to bail me out ;D  If I see questions come up on this board that I can help with, I'll be more than happy to jump in with my $0.02

Hi I'm Artemiy, now begin study mach3 and work of CNC, in this year i've got bachelor's degree on robotics in Bauman University, first question for me is what cam system should use for building g-code more comfortable for mach3(my cad is solidworks), second is ability make 3d line on g-code and then mach3, because i've heard that's impossible( while nothing is impossible) . Thank's for answers

Hi
Fairly newbie
After two years of trying to get this 4X4 CNC plasma table to work I finally threw it away and bought one that does work. I have been doing very well drawing in Auto cad and cutting The problem I have is I am trying to cut 6'' donuts and the sides don't come out even I suspect the motors have to be tuned but I don't know how can anyone help me ?

Hi

Open a thread in the general Mach area and someone will assist, I have just built a 4x4 so maybe I can offer some help.

Hi George,

I have moved your post to the General Section as a New Topic 'Plasma help please' - I hope this brings the necessary response towards resolving your uneven cutting problem.  http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic,30729.0.html

Hello everyone,just introducing myself, i am new to lazycam and Mach 3, i got myself one of those Chinese CNC mills (6040), i am pretty happy with it, i practiced a lot of CADCAM in school, but since i started working i never got a chance to do it any more, so this CNC is my opportunity to do again something i really enjoyed.
I got a problem with Lazycam right now, i want to cut the outline  of a letter G, i create the vector in illustrator, export it as dxf, but when i open it in LazyCam some lines take shortcuts and skip one or 2 anchor points.
I dont know how to load an image here, let me keep trying.
