 :) Hello, My name is Stuart and trying to get started in CNC.  Bought a SXCNC 6040 (China??) setup and missing manual(s) for setting up the pin setting on the serial cable and MACH3.  ??? Does anyone have a SXCNC Manual?  Is there one?  Can I get one?  Does anyone know or can make a suggestion for these settings?  Please help.  ;D THANKS for considering. --S

THANKS FOR THE F/UP!!!!! :-\ I JUST CAN'T SEEM TO GET MY MOTORS GOING WITH MACH3 SOFTWARE.  I BOUGHT A "CABLE PACKAGE"  W/DOWNLOADABLE SOFTWARE.  Still would not run.  I thought I might have a HWD issue. So I took the system in and learned some things......One (1) too powerful computer for Mach3 and controller cable.  My computer is more for graghics/games @ 10 MHz w/Hi resolution Monitor.  Mach3 works but strange things happen... Mach3 is starting to remind me of a 8-bit software I used to sell back in the 70's-90's.  When you change one area in the software or hardware you don't know what else is affected.  Ghosts start appearing.  The cable software is not Win 10 compatible yet...   Also, I think I might be better off with Mach4 solution.  It seems more Windows based.   But right now I just want to get what I have up and running.  I pretty sure Mach3 is working but the connection between computer and controller is the problem. My controller is a JP-3163b w/4 axis. Has anyone else had this problem with China CNC's?  ;DThanks Again!! --S

Not sure what F/UP is. Care to elaborate on that?

Have you followed the instructions that came with that controller?

F/UP = Follow up and yes but I would like to prove it by running the G-Code roadrunner.  The keyboard says I am moving x=y coordinates but nothing from the cnc table.  I am certain
the problem exists with rs-232 UC-100 motion controller connection.  Can't seem to install the drivers off the installation program. The installation starts then stops about half way through. 
I have tried several (8) times. Cleaned off the Hard drive and down loaded installation software and it still only goes about half way and freezes up loading  Any suggestions?  Thanks -- S

Wnen i press a jog button you can see the change on screen but the motors do no move do not move.
A few other things do not work like : start from here, run backwards. Yes all the jogs are on in all screens.
The machine run all g code programs. It is just the jogging that it do not work and  is very annoying to turn the motors by hand every time to set up and zero.
Please help.

Hello world!

I 'm a new user to the Mach3 forum. I work at a Greek company that builds marble CNC machines, along with other marble machines. You can find infos for the company here http://marblemachines.gr/
We have already made some machines with Mach3 controller and we are happy to use the Mach3 software. Some questions arise from time to time about the software, that's why I need some guidlines from the forum.
