Can't make it move ?!
« on: November 14, 2016, 05:44:54 PM »
So I purchased a cnc unit from a garage sale (its mint condition) however im also pretty sure its a chinese brand 3040t-dj is the model he said it was

Anyway I cant seem to get it to move, I have got it all plugged into a PowerPoint, purchased a pci serial port as i read the cables wont work , i turn it on and the spindle spins when i turn up the speed on the controller , the axis lock up so i cant alter them , however when i try and mess around with g code and press it to cycle it wont move at all , I have no idea on what to set the settings too apart from what ive seen people set them too on this website, hopefully somebody can help me getting this thing working!

You can download the manual from here http://www.chinacnczone.com/cnc-3040t-dj-mini-cnc-manual-chinacnczone_l62_p11.html

That should get you started on inputting the settings.
