Machine loosing Coordinates
« on: February 26, 2007, 09:23:22 AM »
Hello,
I am a new user to Mach 3 and am running a CNC router with it.  I am trying to run a 3d lofted part, but the machine continually looses it's coordinates. 
I think that Mach 3 looses contact with the router, and then catches back up, while it has lost contact the router seems to be in a free roam motion and then is reigned back by Mach. 
The part is then off by nearly 1/2" in any given axis.
Any ideas?
One time I know it was the screen saver turning on, I have since taken care of that and all the power settings.
I need help fast!
Thanks,
John

Did you find the problem? It sounds to me like you have a noise problem... IF you didn't get it fixed please feel free to post more info about your machine

Thanks Brian, I think he still has some rough spots to work out. If he needs help, I think we will hear from him. If we can't get it, we'll call our big brother Brian. He can beat anything.  ;D
