Greetings all,

My name is Bill, I have been assembling a AVID CNC crp4824 in my basement for a small furniture and fabrication business I run. I am an electrical engineer and university lecturer in my normal life but am obsessed with CNC machines. I ran an older Shapeoko2 machine for about five years and outgrew it. I am trying to get Mach4 setup but having some troubles.

Thanks

Hi my name is Mario all the way from the San Diego/Tijuana border region. I studied architecture and love fabrication and furniture design.
I'm currently working with a company that uses a Velox VR 2525 cnc routing machine with the mach 3 software. I've been working with them for some time and haven't had any issues what so ever, until today when the infamous "external estop requested" warning message appeared. I've attached a couple of images if that helps. I've already checked all of the wiring. Everything seems in place.
Like I said my main thing is designing, no really electrical engineering. Can anyone offer any advice?
 
Thanks in advance.
Mario.

I've been running a Windows XP Mach3 system, controlling a small CNC router, for about 11 years now.  It all worked fine, and I didn't have any questions, up until now.  I'll go post my questions somewhere more appropriate.

I cut out small parts (wood, brass, leather, plastic) for the musical instruments that we build here.

My name Mario,
Retired mechanical ing. Work with Caterpillar products all my working life.
I am a hobby woodworker now and I built most of the  machines, including a 19 inch band saw, in my 2 car garage shop.
My newly built CNC machine 2x4f  is working ok but there are some questions that I have about Mach3 some times.     Well thank you very much for helping me and all us the newbies.

Hello, My name is Ray and I'm new to CNC routers.  I just purchased Mach3 to use to run my Genmitsu 3018-Pro CNC router.  Is there anyone out there that has a tutorial on how to configure the Mach3 software for my machine?  I would greatly appreciate some help.

Thank you!

Reading the Mach3 manual may be a good place to start  https://www.machsupport.com/help-learning/product-manuals/

I am new here, well about 2 days old before i registered.... Anyways pretty new to the cnc world. Built my first 3 axis mill which is about 98% complete. Thought i would hook up a XBOX controller to test my steppers and well hit my first bump in the road.... Ive read almost every thread there is in here and tried the fixes people talk about but for some reason i can only get my buttons to do something like Stop and reset. Left and right stick do nothing.... Im getting pretty frustrated with it. Win XP pos pc with fresh downloads of the required files. Any help would greatly appreciated. Thank you.
