Mach3 and probe test height setter thingy
« on: January 22, 2021, 05:22:50 AM »
Hi all,

System windows 7 pro 32bit
Machine 3040t very first edition machine - with a few upgrades.

Guys im after the wiring diagram for setting up the entire machine from Computer 25pin D connector LPT1) to the entire machine wiring.

my machine has no end stop switches (of which i plan to fit later next week)
i will need the diagram to show what where and how please if poss.

also whilst doing any wiring mods i want to put in a stop button and probe setting for tool height.
I do believe its pin 15 on the LPT1 port for this ???

Also if poss can anyone tell me what i need to change in the software to make the switches work and the probe height too please?

I presume for ease all the swithces and probe pick up are to ground (chassis of the machine) meaning i only need 1 wire per switch per axis.

so therefore in total i will need

x,y,z,A axis switches (4 wires)
probe contact ( 1 wire)
Stop button (1 Wire)

can anyone help please?

Im sure im not the only one needing this information and wouldnt be surprised if its not been asked before but there are so many threads the search engine can not find anything to suit.

Many thanks
