hi im Patrick from  western NY. I have an old practical cnc machine that i bought 10 years ago. well the table stoped working so i purchase an up grade from Candcnc Mach3 which was at the time a good investment. i have tested all the motors on bench and made sure they were working. i mounted the servo motors on my table. I'm in the process on configuring the motor drive. I'm in a jam. I have read the manual and I'm sure what to do. with the setting. I'm running a plasma on the table. If there is anyone that can help me that would be great and if your from NY that would be even better.

I NEED HELP! I work for my church and have been dabbling in woodworking my entire life. We decided to get a CNC router and long story short I can't get the machine to work @ 100% accuracy. I do not know the make because it was converted from a Metal cutting machine some time ago. I know that it is a well built machine and have had several CNC guys look it over and agreed to that. I need someone who really knows Mach3 to help us figure out what is wrong. We cannot get the machine to run at full speed and there is an error somewhere causing it to jump off course just slightly resulting in ruined work. If you are in the Dallas area and know the software well PLEASE let me know. We are willing to pay a reasonable amount to get this thing up and running so that we can create like we had planned.

Thanks so much

Hello all, my name is Marty and I've been dabbling with Mach3 and a router off and on for a few years. My background is in electrical controls and 2d CNCing with waterjets. Currently using Mach3 to make engravings in panels of the cedar chests I make. Best Regards!

Hi all,

   I am new to this group and a complete novice as far as mach3 is concerned. My name is Dick Neighbors and I live in Cincinnati OH. I build custom cues and repair them for a living. I've been doing repairs since the late sixties and have been building them for 23 years.

  At present I have a 33X33" CNC gantry router that I built about 10 years ago. The operating system is AH-HA which is a dos based system and they are out of business now. I have learned to use it and it does all that I need, perfectly.

   But my problem now is that I have purchased a new machine and have decided to use the mach3 software. I build custom cue sticks and use that machine for inlays, deco-rings and engraving. The new machine will be for tapering shafts and butts. Although I am familiar with the Ah-Ha software, I'm going to be lost as far as installing and formatting the mach3 software.

Dick

Hello, we have a CNC ROUTER with a plasma cutter, we have a problem when we work with the plasma profile, the motors not move properly in all axis. When we work with the mill profile , we don't have any problem and the machine works properly. Can you help us?

Thanks.

Hey folks, my name is Doc, but DocNasty was my radio personality for years and years.  Anyways, I just picked up an xCarve from Inventables, but I really want to get Mach4 figured out for some projects i'm working on. 

Anyways, I don't know how much i'll be here, but I do want to show my support, and figure out the software.  I'm a software developer by trade.  VB, C#, C++, etc..  I have a 3D printer, so i'm familiar with GCode.  I just need to figure out how to get started with Mach4, and hopefully not much has changed since the original videos came out many years ago. 

Hopefully if all goes well, i'll have some great stuff to brag about.  Until then, i'm looking for how to generate the GCode, etc.. and how this whole thing works.

Hi all.

Just joined the group and got started with Mach3. We're building a Plasma machine and can't wait to use it!

I did have an issue with installing but think it was just due to the Avast antivirus.

Hello All,
I've been a casual user of Mach 3 for awhile and am getting more involved.  Can anyone point me toward a good thread where I can find out the difference between Wizards and Brains?   My manuals and MachScreen may be a little out-of-date.     

Anyway, I'm somewhere between hobbyist and professional.  I turn some small stainless steel and aluminum parts using Mach lathe which I sell, but mostly, I just like building stuff and automation.  Right now I'm working on a watchmakers lathe. I've got Mach 3 running two axis, and am adding spindle control.

Thanks All and Regards,
