I was noticing that as of this writing we have 2795 members and have only heard from a couple of hundred and an even smaller number of regular posters.

So if you are new around here please post and introduce your self.  You could give a little on your background, hobbies , how you ended up here, whatever!

This is a site to help with mach. There is a great talent pool here already but this is a community driven site and we would love to hear from the silent masses ;)

So stand up and say hi!!

Thanks,

Chad

My name is Gary and I am from NYC.

Well, I just joined and downloaded the trial Mach 3 version. I been using New Hermes machines and the Gravostyle programs. I learned the opensys (DOS)  program as well as the gravostyle 98, 5 and I think the new one is 7.  I just bought a 6040 CNC and seems that my programs do not work with it. Trying to set up the Mach 3 and I must say that I certainly need help. I mean I can run my engravers with my eyes closed but I can't  seem to even get the Mach3 to set up. I am looking for some sort of tutorial program, if there is one out there.

Thanks. I printed it out yesterday along with the Mill Wizard. I'll read them both and see what I can grasp. I am usually a quick learner.  I am looking for answers to a couple of questions, such as can I have two cnc programs on the same computer and use them both?
Thanks again.

I just registered and was wondering if the "Search" tool is working? I put several terms in and I get an error message.I bought a Novakon NM 200 for a couple thousand bucks and just got it powered up.Will be needing instruction on how to run the machine, though I have the manual.I ran Haas machines years ago and have a CAD background. I spent the last 25 years in management, do any useful skills have lapsed!@

Hi,
no, unfortunately the website is under repair/re-design and the search and redirect functions are not working at the moment.
I didn't realize how often I use re-directs until I don't have them.

Hi All, I years ago (10?) I purhcased a used router table from an guitar maker in Monterey CA.   It came with Mach 3   rev 2.0.026 verson and was running on a Windows 2000 professional box.   Ive been using it to cut skateboard molds and skateboard shapes for our company .

Love it, use featurecam with a Mach 3 plugin, and it's worked well for the most part.  Little buggy, but I don't necessarily blame it on the Mach 3.

I have a problem and I want to know where to post my question.

Thanks

I was able to finally get my motors tuned. So I don't guess I need any more help. Thanks

Hi All I'm Vet Nick I am not an engineer or anything like that but I've always been good with my hands. Back in Feb 2011, I was struck down with a heart attack at the age of 58 so a triple bypass and another 10 heart attacks later here I am still tinkering in my garden shed. Now for 7 years, I have had a bad brain fog caused by my medications. but in that time I have bought the raw materials and made my own CNC machine which measures 2000mm x 1000mm. all the time it was difficult because I was not able to use my memory which was none existent still I persevered and 18 months later I produced a new working machine. Mach3 I was told to use and I like it. I wish the same could be said for Auto Desk Fusion 360. due to my lack of brain power, I am still trying to learn it today but hey I'm getting there. Autodesk 360 is a very good program and I've enjoyed the challenge.

Now a little problem that I have is that I can't seem to enlarge the Mach3 display to fit the screen. If someone could help with this in a simple way it would be much appreciated.

Again help would be appreciated with a nil-low cost program that will allow me to crave photos to wood.  I thank you for your time reading this and look forward to any help that is received.
