Hi,
My name is John. New to CNC. I'm a hobbyist primary interested in using it for wood. I got one of those units from China, couldn't beat the price. To my surprise it connected relatively easy and is talking to mach3 software. It's been going slow since. I'm running the sample road runner. Setup x y as home which is in the lower left hand corner of my board.  Z is just touching the top of my board. When I press go to Z it returns to the home position just above the board. When I press cycle start, it raises the bit and runs above the board. Not really sure why. Any help could be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Jon

Hi ,
 my name is Dermot. living in ireland and have been involved in engineering (maintenance,  machine building , light electrics,  cad .) for the bones of 35 years.  I built a 4' x 4' gantry router last year just to get a hobby going because the kids have flown the nest , well nearly!  I'm still getting to grips with it and would love to build a knowledge base of cnc's.   and Mach 3.

Hi
I'm Daniel, just registered
I've got CNC 2030, and still learning how to use it :)
But I have an issue, that is the reason I have registered my self today.
I use Artcam Express to create shapes, but when I load G codes and start the router it's engraving deformed shapes.
Wandering if anyone can help me solve that.
Thanks

Hi Daniel,

Welcome to the forum.

Post your question as a New Topic in the general section, giving as much detail about your machine and it's setup as you think may be necessary for others to understand the problem you are having. A picture of the deformed shapes you mention may also help (use the Reply tab and Additional Options to post images).

Hi Bryan,

Welcome to the forum.

Please post your question as a New Topic, giving as much detail about your PC as you think is necessary, and I am sure someone will be able to help resolve the 'unnamed file' issue (not many members read this section which is really only for introductions rather than problem solving).

Hello Friends

In a last few years I started to learn about CNC programing and built some machines for our purposes.My English is bad,maybe I make some mistakes,wrong words,but I hope that You understad all.
My age is almost 50 so the new is not me,but of course here it is.
Generally I need the help from You regarding to work with mach 3.
I built some simple things like stepper motors with mach,but now I stopped a little bit.
In my new project there is a rollformer wich is needed to roll some profile and in a meantime to stop punch some holes,and go and stop the punch in other position
and finally cut the profile on lenght.The problem is that the main engine need to be drived with freq.inverter a 3x380 volts becouse of a big Nm needings.
We put the encoder on mach and its count in a settings screen but not be able to machining with.
There is some guy who help to me before,but he is also out of ideas how to manage this machine to work like I want.
Summarizing I need next.
X shaft:drive the 3xAC motor via frequency converter,and encoder
Y,Z,A,B shaft :to drive stepper motors for positioning 2 punchig heads
2 relays to give the signals to punching heads
1 relay to give the signal for cut to lenght

If someone help to me I really appreciate
