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:

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

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.

Hi I am a retired 67 year old and enjoy working with my hands, I carve stick heads and knock up simple projects like bird and bug boxes amongst other things. I have also been riding motorcycles since I was 16, I have been into BSA;s but have owned many different british bikes over the years, at present I have 3 BSA;s a 2003 Triumph T100 as well as a 125 chinese vespa LX lookalike. I have just purchased a 6040 CNC 4 axis milling machine hopefully to run on Mach 3. at present the Y and the z axis go in the wrong direction and the spindle motor will not run on the test on the setup instructions. I am going to have another go later but any help would be appreciated. I live near Malmesbury in Wiltshire UK and it would be great if anyone living nearby with Mach 3 experience could help me as I am not brilliant understanding computor set up instructions but I am ok once shown
