Look on your motor outputs and see if you have disabled the X Axis

Hi Guy's
Once again i need some help i am tyring to set up Mach-3 for my lathe working on the configuration of Mach-3 the lathe was already running under another software product so i already had all the math done and the lathe running properly,(don't ask) Mach-3 is just a better product, anyway i just took the setting's off the preceding software and put the setting's into Mach-3 but it's not working out right when i do a G00X+3 i am in MM the move is way off also i can't get the accel and velocity working any help as is always appreciated.

Hi, Dennis

Looking through your previous post's, Gecko's and CNC4PC your double opto-isolated, Have you try-ed increasing your Step's, Dir., Pulse's to 5 under Motor tuning, If its at 0 there may not be enough delay time there for both opto's to see the pulses.

As far as your Vel & Accl, Set them low values (v, 50, A 10 or so), Adjust the Steps Per till there accurate, Then increase Vel to a speed your confortable with or loosing steps then back it off some, Then increase the Accl up the same way and back it off also.

Is this stepper or servo system ?

Hope this Helps, Chip
