Can't Jog
« on: April 07, 2023, 04:00:03 PM »
I am a high schooler with an old MicroMill DSLS 3000 that I have been trying to get working. I am using a desktop with Windows 7 (32-bit) to run Mach 3. Here is the user's manual. ( https://www.soigeneris.com/Document/Taig/MicroMill_DSLS_Manual.pdf )

Basically, none of the axes want to move. Here is what I know:

  - I am new to Mach 3 and don't really know what I'm doing.
  - When I Jog I can see numbers changing on the display, but I get nothing from the mill (except for the spindle which is always on).
  - The Mill did work about two years ago and none of the hardware has changed since then.
  - I can see the motors twitch when I turn it on.
  - The enabled port does correspond to the parallel port attached to the controller
  - Almost every other setting is the default.

Is there something I'm missing? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
