mACH4 hELPPP!
« on: December 22, 2017, 12:44:23 PM »
Hello Everyone,
I'm totally new with the CNC mill and I'm needing a mentor. I have a G0704,Mach4,C11g Board and uc100. I have my motors laid out on the table but I cant seam to get them to run. I'm thinking its the setting in Mach4. Any help would be great.

Hi,

Do you have the drivers and a dedicated power supply for the stepper motors?

If you go to the cnc4pc website here:- https://cnc4pc.com/c11gs-multifunction-cnc-board.html
and have a look at the "Basic Wiring Guide For Stepper Drivers" PDF (under the "Documents and Downloads" tab), it should help you understand what you need.

Nick.

Hi,
have you got the UC100 and its plugin as the active motion controller in Mach4?

Do you have any LEDs on the UC100 which indicate that it is communicating with Mach? Did you have to install a USB driver for the UC100?

Are there any LEDs on the breakout board which would indicate that the UC100 is producing signals to the board?
