Hey all,

Name is Russell White and am very new to the CNC world. Live from Kansas, I have been trying to setup my less computer savvy counsin's CNC machine that he purchased from a second hand dealer. I have multiple questions dealing with Post Processor set up, setting up the Plasma cutter with the table, and various other questions. The table is a plasma only, running mach 3 and sheetcam. Any help or direction would be appreciated greatly!

-Russell

Hi Joe,
Please ask your questions in the Mach3 section and I am sure that you will get some help.

We never have the time or money to do it right the first time, but we somehow manage to do it twice and then spend the money to get it right.

Hello,

I am Donnie. I live on the coast of NC.

I purchased a used home built cnc plasma table that came with the Mach software. I have had a little experience in CNC machining, but not a lot. I was introduced to CNC machining during collage Machine shop classes. I was pretty much trained in writing G-code and very little CAD software at the time. Needless to say, that was a life time ago, lol.
 
I love learning new things. My hope in the future is to retrofit my mill and lath with cnc controls. Along with other projects in mind. I do like the flexibility of the Mach software and look forward to years of fun, learning and growth with it.

Hi All

I have built my first CNC Router  (Cutting bed 24" X 48")  everything is smooth no binding with the ball screws not attached with just a little push each axis moves the full length without any issues. I first bought a very small chinese router and was hooked from day 1 so i also purchased mach 3 and have not looked back since

Hi, name is Ken. Live in the Austin Texas area. Normally work with data, but know nothing about electronics. Right now I'm still ordering parts to build my very first CNC.  Making it 2'x4'. I've got most of the hardware, motors, and drivers, but have some more questions. Hope y'all will be patient with me.

Hi there allow me to introduce myself.

Will Davis, retired test engineer living in Malahide, Dublin, Ireland. Have been cutting metal as a model engineer since the late 70s on a trusty Myford ML7.

Bought a Sieg SX2 Plus mill and have converted it to CNC. My problem is the controller I have been using (DDCSV1.1, linux based box) is not really capable of running a mill as it lacks a lot of G and M codes. Having spent a lot of money so far I really need something I can trust to interface my Fusion 360 designs to an end-mill.

Some of the g-code output by F360 is not appreciated by my controller!

I certainly don't want to hand edit F360 g-code

So for only $400 or so I intend to get Mach4Hobby and a PMDX-416 USB controller

Exoect a lot of questions!!

Will Davis

Hi everyone
first i want to thank you all for sharing your knowledge and helping newbies like me :)
my name is John and im from Orlando Florida
i put together a 5 axis cnc machine ,which i originally purchased it from china ,but later i had to replace the break outboard and every single stepper motor and also the power supplies...
i have a very big problem with mach3 ,i dont know if fusion 360 which i get my gcodes , when mach3 working on a gcode ,sometimes it misses and completely mess up the coordinates... it happens when the z axis is stepping down another level... for example if the machine is stepping down 0.1mm each time ,when the entire gcodes of -0.1 ,is completely done ,and (during that many times the z axis goes up and down...) everything is fine ,then suddenly for example ,if the z level is -0.5 and now its going to do the next pass of gcodes with -0.6 ,the coordinate system completely changes ,its like you move the X axis like 10 or 20 mm .... and it starts rest of the program from there... and that of course means complete messing up the work and sometimes the tool breaks...  even in the visual toolpath of mach3 ,you can see the new path is being generated in a complete different location.... so this is something even the computer recognize... but i dont know what causes it ... i cant say its because of a gcode or not ,because some of the gcodes which have been running fine , i seen it happens to them...
i am very sorry that i introduce myself like this ,please let me know if i should write this in another topic ,and what should i write the subject to get the best help and of course the next person who may have the same problem ,could find it easier...
sorry again ,and thank you all for help and support ,if you guys want me to give more info ,i will ,i am a newbie... so forgive me if i am short and not explaining well
