motor movement
« on: January 27, 2014, 10:55:31 AM »
I have been using Mach 3 for a while now and my computer crashed. I reconnected another computer that I had been using to try my programs (simulating). I lost all my inputs and output configurations but that is not the real problem. I have gone thru the setup procedures and should have enough information for motor movement but do not. I can hear them react to commands but no movements. I do have them enabled in Ports an pins. Please help.

as i said....you can't "guess"
and you may need to up/lower your kernal speed
in ports and pins.

in ports and pins.
