Good-day to you All,
I'm Thomass and nearly new to CNC   Living and working in the Netherlands.
I love to understand this mater but do not understand the language as used. So sometimes i will ask a question, stupide in the thoughts of most of you, but to me a question.
My workshop consist out of a X-carve router A Lathe of a Chinese brand ready to retrofit (when i have the time and answers)
as motion controllers, i do have a Masso 4axis, (but less fond of) a couple of TC-50M  and a few centronic boards what i do not use because i do not have centronic ports on my windows 7 system.
I am willing and wanting to use Mach 3 or Mach 4 software, i did not make a choice jet.
from both versions i do have a demo version to play with.

Hey y'all. New to the forum and finally posting. I built from scratch a cnc router using Open Builds rail and steppers. Using Mach3 with the mill profile as of now. Also wanting to use the machine as a plasma cutter, but still trying to learn that side of it. I will be posting several questions I'm sure, so please be patient:)

Hi my name is Maurice from New Brunswick Canada. been following this site for a while I m a semi retired machinist for about 40 years setting myself a small hobby shop with a cnc router, a converted Orac lathe and presently working on converting a triac mill. I m running the router and lathe with gecko drive and Mach3 . I ve decided to do the convertion with a G540 and G200 Galt inverter for theTriac mill. I got the axis working properly but I can t get Mach to start the spindle. any suggestion would be appregiated.

My name is Jonathan, from South Africa.

I am completely novice in the CNC hobby. In actual fact I switch on my first CNC motion controller last night. Trying to jog (move) my hybrid motor and must be honest I am finding it so hard to setup my pokeys57cnc board so that I just can move the motor?

Any help on this?

Kind Regards
Jonathan

Hi Jonathan,

Welcome.

I may be wrong but it is my understanding that NFS have a dedicated support team at their help desk. Try using the free email support ticket system and see if they can help you set up your 57CNC.  https://www.machsupport.com/support/

KEEP SAFE !

Thanks for the suggestion.

Did make use of it. ooooh okey I believe it might still be early early morning by them. Just the frustration of weeks waiting and finally getting everything up and running last night I need to test those motors before the return date expires so I will wait patiently.

Thanks once again

Hi TPS.

Yes I do have it.
So how do I select which pin to use to activate motor0 in Mach4? What should I exactly do in the pin mapping section? like is pin 1 - 9 dedicated to motor 1-8? And what must I do to enable the motor in Mach4.?

thanks.

Best regards
Jonathan
