No. I do not get motor movement.  Although when I hit the X,Y, or Z keys numbers change.

the numbers will move in mach3 because its an open loop system, there is no feedback from the motors to tell mach "Hey, Im moving"   mach always assumes that its working.

Larry the step port and dir port in your XML have to be set to port 1.  it tells mach3 which port to use for those pins.

Also, your motor tuning Steps Per is set way to high.

For the steps per for X and Y try 640.  If it moves to much then half that.  I say that because I done remember if I made my 3040 router XML file I have with 1.9 degree steppers or .8 steppers that are twice the resolution. 
For Z try 800 or half that.
Velocity start with 1000 as your set in metric.  Accel slide the slider 3/4`s the way to the right.  Remember that when you make a change in one axis of the motor tuning YOU MUST CLICK THE "SAVE AXIS SETTINGS" BUTTON before going to the next axis.

This will be my last post on this topic. Because of the enormous amount of help from fixitt I have my cnc up and running. I can't thank Robert enough for the patience he demonstrated and the commitment that was shown during his efforts to help. Way beyond the call of duty. Thanks to all the others who got me going in the right direction.  ;) Lawrence

Hi Gregors,

Attach your .xml file (the one from your Mach3 folder <your profile>.xml) and we will try to identify the problem.
Copy and rename it to gregors.xml then attach using Additional Options tab.
