Hi, my name is Marco, from Virginia.

I have a mini-mill that I am upgrading to CNC, 2 axes done with Z in progress. I'll be using it to make parts for my full size 2 seat airplane project. I've been using my mill and lathe for the past 2 years, and enjoy making things.

I'm still dealing with the CNC learning curve, but it gets a little better every day.

Can anyone point me to how to map my Ball-screw in Mach3?

Ciao

Ciao,
Good question as I have never paid attention to it, don't recall any posts about it, nor do I  find anything in the manuals  about it. >:D

Would recomend that you check the steps per unit based on the longest travel of the axis. Ball screws vary as to their accuracy with backlash being a bigger problem
than the accuracy of the lead.

G'day, I am Rick and teach woodwork in a country High School in Western Australia.
We have purchased a locally made CNC router, using Mach3 and I am looking at using Vcarve pro 7.

My brain is swimming at the moment with all the stuff I need to learn, and good advice has sent me here to read and ask.  I still have a lot of reading to do in the initial stage of trying to get some action with the machine.  Time is the biggest problem, as i am still teaching.  Summer holidays, in two weeks time will be an opportunity for learning, however as we all know, holidays are normally jammed packed with an endless amount of jobs to do.

I look froward to reading your advice!!

HI,
Greg Smith here. I work at a sheltered workshop as a Rehab Engineer building things to help our handicapped people with the jobs that come in. A never ending opportunity to create unusual stuff. I've built a cnc router that's been a dream for many years and now am catching up on the associated technology to utilize it. Love the forum and the help it's been so far :)

Hi,

My name is Eric.  I'm a long time reader/lurker...   I would like to become a more active participant and share some stuff I work on.

I currently run a Millrite mill I've converted to CNC (mechanical and electrical), as well as a Denford Starturn 8 lathe that I've got running (electrical conversion only).  I've been working on these two machines slowly for about the last 3-4 years and have them working well.

I am now currently working on my own touch probes and a probing wizard, as well as various other 'arts' and 'craft' like projects.  I'll share some more about these a little later. 

Regards,
Eric Brust

I am new to the forum but not to CNC.  I have been running my home built CNC router using Linux for about 4 years.  Decided to switch to Mach3 to be able to use my 4 axis rotary.  Linux didnt like the 4 axis so much.  I use my mill to do woodworking like signs, inlays furniture etc.  I use V Carve to generate and post my tool paths.  I started posting in the forum to help with the Mach3 installation.  Its good to be around individuals with so much CNC knowledge.

Hi. I have been using mach3 with v-carve pro since July '13 and have been very happy with mach3 and vectric so far. I have a home built router with a cut area of 36" on the x axis and 48 " on the y axis and 5" inch travel on the z. I work on cnc's that range from the late 70's up to some new cnc machines. I still have many ideas and projects to try but like everyone else,,,, limited time.

Does anyone ever reply to the emails sent via the contact form? I've tried it numerous times without a response. I represent CNC Warehouse LLC and didn't want my communications to this company in a public forum.

If someone from the company is actually monitoring this, please email scottp@cnc-warehouse.com
