Hi my name is Dave and i run my home built cnc router i used acad and kcam to produce model aircraft projects for production and need to get in to match 4 to do sum 3D stuff and foam work and it is nice to have a spell check first one i have seen and as you will see i need one


I was noticing that as of this writing we have 2795 members and have only heard from a couple of hundred and an even smaller number of regular posters.

So if you are new around here please post and introduce your self. You could give a little on your background, hobbies , how you ended up here, whatever!

This is a site to help with mach. There is a great talent pool here already but this is a community driven site and we would love to hear from the silent masses ;)

So stand up and say hi!!

Thanks,

Chad

Hi, I'm Martin

I'm a design engineer and bought a Heiz400 this year. I'm currently machining a model of the 2003 Bentley Le Mans winner out of Blackwood. It's fun but I can't run it whenever I'd like because it's on my desktop in my study! My wife does not appreciate the noise! I'm a South African living in Lincolnshire, UK.

Cheers

Hi,

Introducing myself at your invitation.  I have a hobby interest in CNC, though my machine has in fact been doing some earning lately.

My CNC Mill is a much modified and improved Seig X2.  It has a ball screw z - axis, re-machined x, and y - axis leadscrews, currently fitted with anti backlash nuts (lead screws and nuts are true square threads, cut on my Premo 5.25" lathe).  There is also a 4th axis rotary table with adjustable tailstock.  No-load position accuracy is approx +/- .001" on x y and z axises, so I am well pleased with the re-work.  There is a DRO on the z axis.  Main wish list is a 10,000 rpm spindle - I am working on that one!  2,500 rpm is much too slow for small end mills.

My stepper drives are home built using EAS PCBs (microstepping at 8 step). I run from 2 x 40 Volt DC 3 amp power supplies, home designed using toroidal transformers and regulated supplies. 

I recently purchased cut2d and find it to be an excellent 2D CAM program.  The machine is, of course, running on Mach3.

Hi,
Please don't delete me.  I've been running Mach2/3 on a 3/4-scale chinese bridgeport clone for a about 3-years to make parts for a bmw e9 restoration http://www.vranedom.com.  I use Mach2 for most of the work, but also use Mach3 to digitize parts for reproduction.  Is Mach 4's camera interface better than Mach 3's?  I also just got a thrashed Victor 618 toolroom lathe and will likely convert it over to CNC as part of its refurb.

Thanks for the great resource,
David

Hi,

I'm Mike from Belgium and I'm using mach3 to make fish floats.  I've created a lathe specially for this purpose.

Hi all,
I've been around for quite a while, just reading, as I don't have CNC on anything yet. I intended initially to use it with my Myford ML7 lathe, and have some stepper motors, an Advantech embedded PC104 computer put aside for this.
I keep on getting sidetracked, I've been following the development of E-LeadScrew, but I think Mach is more suitable for my lathe.

I also like the idea of the Quorn tool and cutter grinder, and the thought of using CNC to control that is tempting, although I will need to make a Quorn first!

I have loaded and dry-run Mach s/w and I like the ease of the interface, so I intend to make use of it, just got to stop sitting here reading...

Hi to all,

I recently purchased Mach3 after playing around with it in trial for about 6 months.  I built a Mechmate and have been running it for a little over a month.  I'm still learning about all the functions of Mach3 and its been a real blast.  I'm located in Taiwan.

Hi my name is Benny, the dumb name I have as my forum name is benny spelt backwards. For some reason it has stuck.
I live In Melbourne Australia. I have been into CNC for a couple of years now, and love the fact that a personal computer can drive a CNC machine. Hence my involvement with Mach3.
I have built two CNC router tables now, and get a kick out of seeing a machine that I built, actually cut something. Its a constant thrill for me. ( But then again I am easily amused. )

Hi I'm Bill
I enjoy readig the posts - its a pleasure to be part of this forum. I am presantly building a small 3 axis mill. I enjoy using Mach with a small 3 axis mill that I previously built.
Looking forward to being a member of this forum.
