Mach3 connect to RAMPS 1.4
« on: October 07, 2015, 11:58:43 AM »
Hello everyone. I tried googling to find information on how to connect Mach3 to my RAMPS CNC machine but I cound't find nothing, which lead me to think it's pretty easy, but still, cound't make it.

What I did so far was setting up in "General Settings" the port to 6 and baudrate to 115200 which is the port created by RAMPS. I can connect to the board with for example, Universal G-Code Sender, so the board is working well.

Could you please give me a hand on this?

Thank you!

Mach3 uses the serial port for communication to external devices and the parallel port to control motion via a BOB & stepper drivers, USB and Ethernet motion controllers require a plugin from their manufacturer.
Are you trying to get motion control data out of the serial port?

if you use RAMPS 1.4 with the Arduiono software,
you only need "universal g code sender" (google for it).

anything is possible, just try to do it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.
