Mach3 Simple Test Program Skips Lines of Gcode
« on: July 09, 2016, 04:05:51 PM »
I am still trying to set my CNC mini-lathe up with the trial version of Mach3. I got the axes to work correctly, but now when I try to test the lathe with a simple turning job, Mach3 blows by lines of Gcode. I would really like to get this thing running and buy a license so I can run long programs. Any idea what could cause this?

I tried a simple turning program, using the Mach3 turning wizard. I was trying to turn the last half-inch of a piece of 0.75" Delrin down to 0.670". The z-axis refused to back up (positive direction). The stepper on that end only recognized commands to go in the negative direction.

I used simple test programs to tune the axes. One program moves the z axis back and forth half an inch without moving the x axis, and the other moves the x axis without moving the z axis.
