OK do they have a pot for tuning the low speed like the gecko's have?   if so have they been tuned?

What is the supply voltage to these drives?

Cant remember if you mentioned your ballscrew pitch?

I notice you are still quoting speeds in inch/sec.   Do I read into that you are still on Mach2?

Not quite 20 questions ;-)

Brian,

I ran the machine all day without a hitch.  I started setting up mach 3 as you suggested but had to stop to run a couple jobs.  Is there a new users manual or update for Mach 3?  There are some differences with Mach 2 and I am not sure what they mean or what I should select.

Thanks,
Steve

Steve

There is a new user manual in the works... John P. is writing it but it is a hard job to keep up with Art! What are you having trouble with?

There are quite a few more settings available in Mach3 that are not the same in Mach2.  I was hoping to be able to decipher them as I go through it by reviewing the manual. I guess the changes are not major but I always try to understand what I am doing before I implement a change.  I am currently having trouble getting Mach 3 to talk to the controller.  I should be able to sort it out but I have been so busy lately that I have not been able to take the time to go through the process of checkin all my settings.  I will get just need to spend some more time on it.

My CNC router is running well with the 25000 Hz and 5uS settings.  My rapid movements are now set at 35 IPM.  I face milled, roughed out, and finished four large 3D Milled molds at cutting speeds of 20 IPM and did not have any stalls.  The finishing cycles took between 9 to 14 hours a piece so I know it is wooking better since it did not stall once.

I will let you know the results of the sherline settings as soon as I get Mach 3 up and running.  Has Art though of just putting out a quick start guide for Mach 3 that could explain some of the differences with Mach 2?
Regards,
Steve
