MACH3 stalls on M3 command
« on: June 25, 2020, 02:54:32 PM »
When I try to run my code Mach3 stops and doesn't move past S12000M3 command. I've tried various post processors and its always this section it gets stuck on. The simulation works no problem. Weird thing is that S12000M3 actually works in MDI and when the GCode reaches it the spindle actually turns on and goes at 12000 speed. It just won't proceed with the rest of the program.

Has anyone else had this problem?

Only time I have seen this is when Mach is waiting for the spindle to reach speed, so make sure feed back is working or if you do not have feedback turn off closed loop and feedback.

Or it could be none of this.
