I need help!
« on: September 20, 2015, 09:57:51 PM »
Hi guys,

I'm wondering if anyone can help me?

I bought a 6040 Cnc machine off  EBay and have loaded Mach3 into my computer, I'm having trouble with the set  up and I've looked everywhere for help.
My issue is that stepper moater keys used on the computer work fine but not on the table. I can't figure it out.
Would anyone kindly screenshot all of their settings for me or point me in the right direction??

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The trouble is that there are so many variants (different controllers / circuit boards) of the basic 6040 machine no one answer suits them all.

Have you tried this configuration...   http://mambohead.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/CNC-6040-Router-Engraver-System-Installation-Manual.pdf   ??

nb. posting a picture of your machine / controller may help. Also posting your current .xml file may shed some light on the problem.
