Having trouble setting up the UC100 CNC controller
« on: December 06, 2013, 05:57:01 PM »
Hello, Im having trouble setting up the UC100 CNC controler/adapter. I downloaded the automatic setup file and it moved itself to the Mach3 file. But it doesn't seem to do anything. Im running windows 7 32bit on bootcamp. Any help would be much appreciated!

Did you do all the steps in the PDF?

When you plugged the UC-100 in did it load the drivers.
Did Mach ask you what controller you wanted to use when you started it?

Yes I've done the first steps but with the driver downloaded, UC100 plugged in and then open Mach3 it does nothing. The screen to choose the control device does not come up and there are no other changes to Mach3.

Does it show up in the "configure plugins" menu under the config drop down?
Is it listed in the plugin control drop down?
In the Mach3 plugins folder is the UC100 DLL listed?

Well the config plugins should show all the plugins in that folder. I would toss out the DLL and reinstall from a fresh download.

No problem.
You can download the DLL by itself here
