Mach 4+ Darwin LPT- motor doesn´t work
« on: September 30, 2018, 08:08:47 AM »
Hi CNC maniacs.  Two days ago i transfer CNC to mach 4 because i hate linux (working good but win is win :-). Install mach 4, install Darwin and pay darwin. If i setting darwin i look to learning video. But motors doesn´t work.  Input Output Home XYZ emergency Stop etc function but motors ,,dead,. If i turn off PC motor function ( i dont turn with finger) if i turn ON PC motor dead and if i have enable in mach 4 motor doesnt start. Have you same problem?  Input and output pins i must setting on darwin and in mach 4 control. But motor pins i can setting only in Darwin. I do everything what i see in Tutorial video but mission failed.
 Sorry for my english i am czech.

I don't know anything about Darwin other than it needs to run on a 32 bit install of Windows. If Windows is 64 bit, no go.

Did you try changing the Active Low setting for your steps pins? That is a pretty common cause for motor troubles.
