Mach3 settings
« on: September 28, 2016, 03:12:50 PM »
Hi,

I´m trying to setup my newly bought cnc machine. I have a Proxxon MF70 CNC and a control box from a company called Gocnc.
I´m having some trouble figuring out how to get contact with the motors, I have watched the tutorials and I´ve set up Mach3 as they say in the video but I can't get my motors to move :/.
I have attached a few photos and maybe someone might see whats wrong. One thing that I think look strange is that not all pins are green in the diagnostics tab.

Sorry, that this is probably a very basic question. But I have very little experience with CNC´s.

Thank you!

That last screen shot is missing a couple of important details.  Particularly the last two columns labeled "Step Port" and "Dir Port".  Those should normally be set to 1 so that the system knows which port to set those pins on.
