setup for limit switches mach 3 USB board
« on: February 12, 2018, 11:14:26 AM »
Please help me out! I Have built a 7'x16' CNC router bed for flat milling tabletops. X,Y and Z stepper motors are configured and working. Four
limit switches for x and y axis are wired in parallel as normally open. How do i configure the software ( Mach 3 with USB controlled break out board) and wiring to the board.

I have followed the instructions provided by the manufacturer and the software co. but closing one of the limit switches has no effect. I am in Central Connecticut. I would greatly appreciate help here through this forum. Also would be willing to pay for some on site help of an experienced Mach 3 user. I recently lost my right hand in a horrible wood processor accident but the CNC was almost completed before the loss.  You can reach me by text at 860-250-6742.
