Few Problems and Questions Re,Mach3
« on: December 17, 2013, 04:41:02 PM »
Hi guys!

Im a Relative Newbie to Mach3 and have one issue with crashing/freezing one issue i have overcome and the other is still a problem, i know the causes but the need to know why?

I have a Geko controller board on the machine and Mach 3 on the pc.

issue 1 that was solved, but any comments would be nice:

Half way through a cut cycle the PC decided to turn the screensaver on (didnt now it was activated) and crashed the machine nad in turn scrambled windows (running XP). i have since disabled the screen saver and thus solved the issue,

issue 2.

for no reason at all the machine restarted no code loaded was just jogging around clearing up dust etc after a cut. but it wouldnt restart without the cnc maching being either turned off or the parallel cable being removed. i assume a signal is being sent from the maching to the PC stopping the reboot as when turned off or cable removed it startes fine...why??

an finally i want to move over to another Pc but not to reconfigure Mach3 for the machine, i have seen you guys talking of a XMP or XML file and copy it over, is this ALL the settings??

thanks in advance and sorry for the longwinded probably confusing post
