Hello everyone

I'm new to this forum. Now retired I have time to learn new things.
I have always been interested in technology and electronics. before retiring I have in electronic security for 40 years.
I realize electronic assemblies and I need to use a CNC to crack printed circuit boards
I discover the CNC and the MACH3 software. So I have a lot of questions.

Hi All,

I live in East Tennessee USA and bought my first and only CNC machine about 5 years ago.  Its a hybrid router and plasma cutter.

--PlasmaRoute CNC 4'x4' table.
--Thermal Dynamics A60 Cutmaster Plasma Cutter
--Milwaukee 5625-60 Router
--Mach 3
--SheetCam

Most of my work caters to the metal arts and wood carvings for home decor.  Some of my other equipment to round out my shop:  Lincoln 140 HD Mig welder.  DIY Powder Coat Oven, Sandblast cabinet, drill press, table saw, miter saw, Flatmaster sander, Graphtec FC8000 plotter.

I’m considering building a new CNC router table so I can dedicate my current machine exclusively to plasma cutting.  Hence, my interest in this Forum and learning the workings of Mach 3 and Mach 4.

At this stage in my life, other than working in my shop, I love to fish and hike the mountains of East Tennessee.
Looking forward to being a sponge here and getting to know many of you!

Hello My name is Cheska , New to cad cam we have an Chinese Industrial 8 x 4 cnc with Mach3 Software and Vcarve pro drawing package. I have configured pins and ports and everything moves correctly "3 axis". When I load a Gcode in the Mach 3 the Toolpath window shows that the artwork is off of the table. We set the soft limits but the gantry wants to go  to the artwork in space.  The spindle will not operate through the software we have to operate on/ :-[ off and speed from the control box on the router, Pin configuration? Any help will be greatly appreciated

Hi Cheska,
welcome. Those questions are best asked on the main Mach Discussion Board where more people will read it.

Sounds like your home switches, if you have them, are not quite working right.

Hi,

Billy here. I am more or less totally new to CNC. I have a Sherline 4 axis mill. I just ordered a new controller and Mach3 software from a supplier in New York. I assume the Mach3 license will arrive with the rest of the parts.  It should arrive soon. The current computer is running Linux and EMC. It is old and I decided to replace it with a windows machine.

I downloaded a demo copy of Mach3 and have been writing some test programs to cut circles and squares and such. At the moment I am trying to learn gcode. I build vacuum tube guitar amps and need to cut squares and circles in the chassis. I managed to muddle through that on a couple of chassis with the old EMC software.

I am a old guy with lots of time to learn this stuff. It is kinda fun most of the time but a bit hard to figure out at times. I am sure I will have a few questions for you guys as time go on.

I also have in mind to build a cnc machine to control a Oxy/Acetylene torch to cut thick steel parts.

Hi,
welcome. That's a pretty broad complaint. Why don't you post on the main Mach3 Discussion Board and with some more specifics we may be able
to help.

I downloaded the software and it will work as far as running one the pre loaded tool paths, but the machine doesn't respond. I have a double ended 28 pin cable, could it not be using the right port.
I am retired and have been running Motion Master routers for almost 20 yrs.    Tony

Hi Tony,
I think there may be a little confusion, to sort it out start a thread on the main Mach3 board where others can see, read and participate in it, well get some details
and get started.
