Hello All , Im new to mach 3,  but was a robotic engineer back in the 80's to early 90's .. last summer built my own router table and have started building a lot of wood  based products (crafts). Since Ive been out of this field for a while please excuse me for any stupid questions ... when I worked on this stuff in the past I had to write all my own code so its nice to have a out of the box app like Mach xx ..

 My first question for the forum (and I hope I asking the right place) is , does any one know if/how to make mach 3 calculate X Y coordinates based on a radial waist axes and a lineal Y axes ...
I'm building a new CNC with a single post with a waist control and then a linear Y axes and i want to use normal G code to cut items.

Not sure how to make a post so I replyed hope it is ok/ My name is Jim I am in a duck fart town called cushing, wi . I am retired and am 70 years young. I have always wanted a cnc but I have had nothing but troubles since it arrived. The instructions were like nil and I could not make the activation numbers work and 3 weeks to the date they told me to eliminate th two " yup that was the problem now it works now to get Mach3 to crank up and it will be a lovely day now to get the Mach3 to work (Bought the softwar from automation in IL .                                                                          .

Hi Jeff,

Perhaps take a look at and run some of the practice Gcode files in the .zip file here: http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic,18345.0.html  - it may help you to get to grips with using Mach3.

Hello Everyone,

I am new to the Mach world. I started working for a company that uses Mach2 software and we are looking at upgrading to Mach3 or Mach4. Can anyone please provide some insight of things I should be aware of?

Thanks

The upgrade to Mach4 is, I believe, substantial in that it requires the transition from using the printer port to connect to the motor controller board to a USB connection, this might involve a hardware change.
Regards
Steve

Hi All.
New guy here.  I have been doing 2D Plasma cutting with a DHC PlasmaCam for about                      9 years, but this 3D stuff is all new to this old dog.  Just got a 6040 router/mill (Ebay).  Have gotten as far as loading Mach 3, setting pins & ports (mostly) and tuning                                                                                                                                                   motors to the point where I can move in XY&Z & A. Need all the help I can!
