MAX-NC Wave pin mapping to Step & Direction
« on: March 15, 2007, 06:35:42 PM »
I can't figue out how to assign the printer port pins on my MAX-NC-10 (the open loop version) to the MACH 3 configuration page.

MAX-NC-10 uses four pins per stepper motor.  Step and Direction only gives me two pins per motor. 

Assuming that at least one forum user has a MAX-NC-10 working with MACH 3, can you please tell me how you did it?

Thank you
Brian

If you look under ports and pins setting there is a choice for either MAXNC or MAXNC CL. You want MAXNC. It automatically assigns the pins. 4 per axis X,Y & Z. It uses all 12 outputs of one PP.

Hello Darek,
Thanks for the tip but it does not do it for me.

I have gone to Config\ports and pins\ check MAXNC Wave Drive clicked apply then restarted.  The \motor outputs\ screen still shows just a single step pin and a single direction pin. 

I am still missing some key information to get started.

The motor outputs screen settings do not matter in MAXNC modes. They are preset to match the MAXNC controller. Putting #'s in them boxes will change nothing.
