3018 MX3 cnc not working
« on: January 16, 2021, 08:17:17 PM »
Hello everyone.  I am new on this forum znd would like some help if possible.  I have a siansmart 3018 MX3 cnc and it uses mach3.  I am using a usb port.  The software detects the cnc, but the cnc will not move or do anything.  The jog does not work either.  Am I missing something?.  I followed the instructions and nothing.  Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

are you able to reset the e-stop (red blinking Reset button)?
anything is possible, just try to do it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.

Thank you for your reply.

I have got it working now.  I just needed to update a file and it is working now.  To know it was connected, it said it was in the line next to the reset. Read usb connected.  It is working now.
