Parameters seem off
« on: November 01, 2017, 07:32:50 AM »
Hello everybody I'm trying to create a SOP for our cnc. When Vcarve is loaded to the Mach3 software the artwork appears off the table in the display window. I am hoping  to learn proper way to configure and save settings for the Motors, Home, Softlimits, The DRo to show actual units that match movement and spindle operation from the software not manual
Pleas Help
 Thanks Brian

Brian,

Have you read the Mach3 Manual, watched any of the available videos, etc.
Surely someone will reply with answers to your postings, BUT, answers to all you questions can be found in the resources I  have mentioned.
I suggest you read and study some. In the long run you will have the ability to address issues related to using Mach3.

Do you have offsets (in relation to the Datum) enabled when generating the Gcode from VCarve ?

Hi Brian,
can you tell us a bit more about your machine.

Does it have separate home switches? When you hit <Ref All Home> what happens?

What controller are you using, parallel port or USB? What PC and operating system are you using?
