brand new cnc user.: E-stop won't stop blinking
« on: February 09, 2020, 01:41:37 AM »
Hello, I've tried for weeks to set my machine up. i have a chinazone usb cnc 6030 5 axis mill. i installed the mach3 software from the artsoft website. I've been searching the web for the proper setup for my machine but I'm lost. i can move the machine via keyboard inputs if i manually hold the emergency button on the actual router and simultaneously press the reset button in mach 3. i don't have 3 hands! i need to figure this out. I'm assuming the problem is within my configuration but I've run a few different examples I've seen online and nothing works. when I press the reset button the program says "usb mach connected" the switches back to "emergency button pressed"
