OK

I am new here and could sure use some help.    I have been using Mach 3 for 5 years on a CNCRPTs 48 96 pro machine.   great results.   as a point of reference, I am an artist, not and computer wizard... so setting this all up 5 years ago almost killed me.

Two weeks ago my laptop died.    resulted in complete loss of all loaded Mach 3 lic. info.  I did save all my 3D CNC folders but could not restart Mach 3.

Yesterday I paid for a new Mach 4 license from AVID so it was formatted for my machine.    got Mach 4 uploaded and configured, than entered into the licensing step.       Made a sad error there.   when they asked for my machines ID, I loaded in my laptops ID .  they sent me the license file to turn on the MACH 4 Hobby.    Sadly I found out at that moment that I should have found the PC ID for the Mach 4 apparently.    ( found this about 5 screens further on in the instructions)


So now I have a license file that is no good.    Can I simple open up that text file and add in the correct PC ID from Mach 4.   Or am I am I stuck waiting for Mach to answer my groveling emails to allow me to restart this long, painful process.


THe other question I have has to do with the screen view.    When I do open up mach 4 the headers are about a size .005 font.   I can not see them even with x 4 glasses on.       will this be corrected when the license is loaded in?      ARGGGHHH.

Mach4 is licensed differently to Mach3, with Mach4 EACH individual PC (called PCID) on which Mach4 is to run must be licensed to avoid the Demo restrictions. The good news is that
with Mach4Hobby you can have up to five PCs licensed with the one purchase. Further you can 'release' the license on the laptop and then use that 'slot' on another PC. You are
allowed up to seven such transactions in a two year period.

If you buy the Mach4 license direct from NewFangled Solutions (online) you create an account that you can manage your own licenses without the need for NFS personell being
involved, more or less instantaneously. In your case you may have to rely on AVID or whomever you bought the license to manage it on your behalf.
You might try to ask AVID if you can have the username and password such that you can mange the NFS Mach4 license page yourself.

 Hi Everyone, My Name is Don Sullivan
I am a retired Army SOF Paratrooper, 5/19th SFG(A),
I am also a Harley Davidson Master Technician.
We have 5 children and 7 grandchildren.
I am new to the CNC world, but I have a lot of experience
with manual machines and equipment.
I purchased a Weike 1325 Router with 4.5 kw spindle, vacuum
bed with a 9 inch by 7 foot rotary axis as well as a 150 watt C02 laser. 
I know many people have the Ford / Chevy / Dodge opinion
when it comes to equipment, and I hold no Bias toward what equipment you have
and I ask the same of everyone here.
I hope everyone will understand if I ask questions that have been answered
before on the forum, but I would like the most current opinion from the members.
Thank you all, and I look forward to learning and sharing with everyone.   Don

Hello my name Is Mike!

Ran multiple Hurco cnc for about fifteen years in my old career first ten years was conversational programed the last five years the programs became more complexed with the addition of the third dimension so the last five was spent running G code files as well as using CAM to generate them. It has been ten years since I have worked in a machine shop and missed the machines so I built my own. Now I am working on customizing my machine with the addition of external buttons and indicator lights. So I do not have to hunt for a button icon to feed hold my machine and cycle start.
