XHC motion card and Mach4
« on: May 13, 2019, 02:34:46 AM »
Hello,

Is anyone using a XHC motion card with Mach4?

I recently purchased a machine using one of these cards, but I am having some difficulties.

Basic functions: execute G code, jog and homing seems to work.

However a number of other things do not seem to work:
- Probing (The probe IS detected as on/off by Mach4, but I can not do a "probe" to set my z0)
- I get some rounding of corners happening

Has anyone experienced similar issues and have you been able to fix them?

Thanks,
Cyrille

Hi,
plenty of people have tried but to my knowledge no-one has had a good result.

There are better choices for a Mach4 compatible controller.
