All 3 axis moving on their own.
« on: September 08, 2020, 07:45:02 AM »
Hi There, I hope someone can help me.

I've not used my mill in a few months, I've now tried to use it and soon as soon as I click reset on the main mach3 screen all three axis move very slowly, then I get a PID error message.

The machine is a an old Bridgeport interact and I'm driving the servo's with a CSMIO IP/A controller, on mach3 Any idea's what could be causing this issue??

Thanks in advance.

Power supply issues or broken ground is in the top 10 for this one

I think the problem may have something todo with one of the capacitors failing inside the mill. After the smoke 💨 cleared the room it started working as expected 😂
