BAD DECISSION
« on: January 27, 2016, 05:31:09 PM »
I bought a 3040Z TS series CNC from China about 3 years ago. I wish I would have bought a well known brand with life support, although they are much more expensive. I have tried to follow the directions for Mach3 set up with negative results. I don't feel I have the correct info for setup or I am missing something obvious. Remember I am green as green can be, so I need lots of help. I don't give up easy and would like to get this running before I croak!! Someone with patience please walk me through from A to Z. I see another 3040 owner with a working CNC is on the forum. I would love to see the setup instructions that came with his CNC. Thank you all who care to help.

Lots of us here to help. As I do not know this machine I found this
from a guy who has / is setting one up. He gives some basics.
Ask away.

There are many variations of Mach3 controlling a CNC router.
I would suggest that you get a copy of the Mach3 Manual and
start reading basic setup. Here is a block diagram of a machine.
Do you have a computer - was it hooked to your machine?
What motors do you have?
What motor drivers do you have?
What interface from the computer to the motor drivers do you have?
Not trying to discourage you but for anyone to help you, you need
some basic understanding of the CNC router so when someone suggests
something to you, you have a basic understanding of what they are talking
about.

Thank you for your replies. I will post as much info as I can find next week. I have read the manual and will continue to reference it.  Thanks again Bob. :)

The controller is hooked up to the printer serial port 378.The only # I can find on the controller is Jiping V3.8.  JP-3163B is the # on the driver board. JP1635A is the # on what I believe is the 4th axis board. The Motors are N1312. I hope this info will be helpfull. Thanks again!  Lawrence

Hi Lawrence,

If you post your .xml file (the one located in the Mach3 folder named <your profile>.xml [typically Mach3Mill.xml]) copy and rename it to lawrence.xml then use the 'reply' tab and Additional Options to post it. Then we can check you Mach3 settings and hopefully see if there are any problems with your set-up.

The setup for that controller should be very basic.
Would need to see a pic of the controller, to see if it has spindle or relay controls.
make sure the motors for 1 are enabled.
x 2 step-3 dir  step port and direction port are 1 for all motors
y 4-5
z 6-7
a 8-9

Estop is pin 10.  With the button out you should be able to click reset in mach.  If it wont reset saying EStop requested, the set the E stop active low.  Also on port 1
Motor tuning I think is going to be 400 steps per. with about half in the acceleration slider.

This should get the machine moving.

I got the router 3040 router that was painted tan.  The controller is a POS I am sad to say.  I made sure that it did work, then I ripped the motors off and put a new set of motors and controller on it.  Made a HUGE difference in performance.  In some drag engravings, I noticed that the OEM setup would round corners and make funky shapes.
