Hi all
I've joined. Priamilary to learn more about retro fitting a Romi lathe with Mach 3. It currently has a control with DC servos (SEM) made by Bridgeport in the ninety's. That's failing and people tell me Mach is the way to go. I hope to find a source of knowledge and hardware needed to interface the machine here.
I plan to use it in my home workshop to further the building of my 1/3 size steam traction engine amongst other projects!  :D
Regards
Marcus.

Hi I'm Benny, formerly known in this group as ynneb.
Its been many years since I have regularly participated in this group, but I'm now back into CNC and will be posting a little more often.
Its great to see some of those old names still here. You must be true master CNCers by this stage.
The Pythagorean theorem: The sum of the areas of the two squares on the legs (a and b) equals the area of the square on the hypotenuse (c).     a² + b² = c².

Hi all, I have worked with CNC machines for over 30yrs but never had an involvement in fixing them, I have a Semco lathe with a dead Anilam controller that I am looking at retrofitting with Mach 3. Need to work out what I can use and what needs to be replaced, most mechanics are really sound but machine has always had electrical issues :)

Hi I'm new to this site and just starting out trying to set up a mini lathe cnc set up and looking to see if I can use Mach3 it seems like it is quite complicated and not sure that I can learn all that is required.  Right now I'm trying to figure out what operating system that I need to be running, from what I can tell I need to be running a 32 bit version of windows 7 is this true?

Mach3 Minimum Recommended Requirements:

Requirements if using the parallel port for machine control:
Desktop PC (Laptops are not supported) with at least one parallel port
32-bit version of Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7 (64-bit versions will not work)
1Ghz CPU
512MB RAM
Non-integrated Video Card with 32MB RAM(Large G-code files, especially 3D files will require a video card with 512MB RAM or higher)

Requirements if using an external motion device for machine control:
An appropriate external motion controller (options can be found on the Plugins page)
Desktop or Laptop with Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8
1Ghz CPU
512MB RAM
Video Card with 32MB RAM(Large G-code files, especially 3D files will require a video card with 512MB RAM or higher)

Hello everyone. My name is Danny I'm 30 years old and from Indiana. I have a sherline lathe setup with mach3 and a sherline mill without automation. I look forward to meeting new people here, helping others and getting a little help myself along the way. I'm good with troubleshooting mechanical problems and enjoy small engine repair as well as anything musical.
