Having Issues With MACH3 and new Mill
« on: March 20, 2017, 09:00:44 AM »
I had tried out MACH3 when I installed it and all motors turned with the arrow keys no issues. I just completed my X and Y axis yesterday and they seem to work as well. So then I tried to install the Joypad plugin and when I tried to turn the motors MACH3 looked like it went to run a program and now when I click an arrow key it moves one step and stops.. like its in jog mode but I am new to MACh so not sure where to look for this...

Also is there any tricks to getting the Joypad to work..

Thanks

Hi,
why bother with the joystick for the moment. Just use the arrow keys and the jog fly-out until you get familiar with it.
