Setting up Mach3 using USB
« on: May 31, 2017, 10:21:00 AM »
I'm new at this. Is there a document explaining how to set up Mach3 R3.043.066 for a 3-axis router, servo with a Mach3 Control Card Driver using USB?

Tweakie,

I have the same issue. I am very new at this. I just received my CNC router from Pacific Tooling (Roger Web). I set up everything per the installation manual and I am able to jog the Y and Z axis along with the spindle. However, I can't get the X axis to move. If I look at the control panel, for Y and Z boards have a green LED lit but the X has a red LED lit. The connection to my computer is a straight USB since it came with a motion controller and as I understand, I thus don't operate through a printer port. I have added photos of what the control panel looks like and some of my configurations. Can you please help? I will take any help I can get as I am a beginner but hungry to learn.

Thanks in advance
