Can not get A axis to run
« on: January 21, 2015, 02:35:25 PM »
I´m using A axis to run 3D extruder head but can not get A axis to run. I tried to use A axis as the Y axis slave but never got it to run so I used B axis as the slave sucessfully. I recon it was the break out board so I replaced it with a HG08 from cnc4you. In the diagnostic screen pin 7 from top from right is green but for A axis it is pin 8 and 9 that is used. Are there any special settings for the A axis that I have missed?
I have runned Mach3 successfully as a router so I´m familiar with the settings. I have checked the cable and all the pins are ok. Could it be the computer port?
Hope someone has an idea.
Thank you

Attach your xml and I will take a look.
Not sure what you are meaning by the green, if its the Pins Current State on the diagnostics page then I wouldnt go by that, never could work out what it signified. Sometimes it seems right then the next its wrong.

Thanks Hood
I figured the problem was the printer port. I put in a new cable and than the problem was fixed.
