Need info about upgrading mach 3 mill version
« on: May 11, 2020, 01:28:40 AM »
I did a retrofit on a mill around 2011..
Hood was a lot of help.
 I'm wanting to upgrade to a newer version.
I think mine is a 2010 ??????? Version..
I haven't messed with it since 2014.
Maybe 2 or 3 times  a year.

Do I need to back up anything?
 Maybe take pictures of my settings\ tuning incase something happens?
  Any info appreciated.

Jack

Make a secure backup of your Mach3 folder.

Help / About will tell you which version of Mach3 you are running.

Don't update / upgrade anything just for the sake of updating but Mach3 version .066 has known issues so get the latest stable version from the Artsoft website  https://www.machsupport.com/downloads-updates/main-programs/

The new version can be installed over the top of your existing installation and all settings, etc. should be preserved.

( Hood is not around as much these days but I am sure he could be persuaded if you get into real trouble  :) ).

 

KEEP SAFE !

Thanks Tweakie!!
I remember talking to you about a few things when I was building it.
The version I have won't do a power tap\ instant reverse.
I was told by many people to update, but never did.
Thanks again!👍👍
