Hi Carlos,

Welcome.

The left/right/up/down arrow keys and the page up / page down keys are usually used.
Alternately, in Config. / System HotKeys you can select whichever keyboard keys you choose.

KEEP SAFE !

Hello, I am new to mach forum. I retrofitted a hurco Hawk machine with stepper motors due to the computer boards being bad in the machine when i got it. I have everything working correctly but i cannot get rpm to read on the spindle index. I am using the original proximity switch that they used for rpm. Now i have the readout to finally work but i only get 600 1200 1800 2400 ect. for rpm. all in 600 rpm increments. What is causing this to do this? I have tried spindle pulley ratio changes. Pulses per rev. changes. Just about everything i can think of but nothing changes the rpm. If i leave the spindle set at the same speed but make these changes the rpm readout does not change. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Hi everyone!
Brand new here - as in, I signed up 3 minutes ago!

I'm originally from Cape Town but I've been living in Hong Kong for the last decade.

I have acquired a 6040 CNC machine a few weeks back. It's almost set up - just finalising the divorce proceedings as I had to install it in the lounge. You see, space comes at a premium here in Hong Kong. The wife said I have to choose between her and the CNC - I will really miss her...

Looking forward to what will essentially be a new hobby for me! I love working with wood, so most of my CNC work will probably use that medium.

Oh, and I apologise in advance for the seriously noob questions coming in the next few weeks!!

Regards
CX15

We were all noobs at one point so bring on the questions!. Especially after you try using the search function first.

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.

Hi all
I bought a xhchb04 wireless mpg and would like to know if somebody could help me with the custom macros. I would like to use 3 of them for x y and z to rapid to zero after touch off and half of  the distance if this is possible. I have checked in the list  of plugins  when you open the dropdown there are a lot of functions but not for what I  would like to do. If there is a way can somebody please let me know how.

 Hello to all of the people making as many mistakes myself and causing the need to produce this fantastic forum. My name is Mark and have been around awhile. This is the third round of learning the art of milling. it is becoming difficult to keep up with the software changes but the cutting stays the same.  Manual then DRO then CAD and wireless now printing going full on..
 Ive never registered or contributed because i didnt feel i had anything to give, so excuse me for dropping the coming question. Anything needing an answer was easily located simply by coming here and searching, so thank you for that.
 My trouble is the following..
 A small fire damaged some shop equipment and documents. A small mill/lathe w/gecko drive was powered via mach3 on win xp. My operator is no longer with me and cannot help me reset what i am needing.
  The mach 3 program says it is licensed to an unfamiliar name. The wizards will not all work due to the need of licensing. There is no response from New Fangled Solutions as to whether I own the software or not. The mach 3 file folder was destroyed in the fire and I have a feeling the original mach3 or maybe the one i pulled from a back up disk, may be pirated because of the lack of operating wizards.
 It seems simple enough to just purchase a new license and am ready to just that and am in need of some help as to what to get with it or not get.

Will i have a complete set of the wizards showing under the wizard tab?

Will the New Fangled Suite wizard (in the same tab) also function under the license?

Do i need to get the mill wizard? This question is because i remember using the items describbed in the program, although i might be recalling something running in the mach3 wizards instead..
  One last concern is the mill and computer is running without internet and everything must be moved by usb.  Any help with this would so much be appreciated. Thank you,Mark
