maxnc10 cl and mach 3---newbie needs help
« on: March 06, 2006, 08:12:48 PM »
Anyone ever used this setup before that can show me some basics:

When I power up the machine, the spindle will spin for a few seconds, then stops.  I went to the ports section, chose port 1 +  MAX NC mode, port    378 address.    I set the inputs all to port 1 pin 12 as they are all in series.  I can then see the limit switch show up on the diagnostics when pressed. 

The MDI will not cause the motor to spin using m3.

The software seems to think it is hooked up as I can jog it and the mach 3 will jog, but no thte motor.

Thanks for any help with the config.

Do you have a pinout for the machine?

No pinout, that is the problem.  I am waiting till Mitchell at MAXNC can find time to talk about it.  Maybe I can get them today, not sure.  They aren't n the manual, actutally, not much is.
