yup, at present i still have them both installed (mach2 and mach3), but only one running at a time.  still working fine in mach2, and no responce with mach3.

when i jog, just like Netjams problem,  the computer interface showes all the axis numbers moving and whatnot.  same as if i run g-code.  but the CNC doesnt respond.

in mach2 when pressing the reset button on the CNC jumps a bit, this is not happening with mach3.

Hi, Shnitzel

Is there an enable pin for your servos ?

Also it's easy to miss the Port assignment in Ports & Pins, Motor Outputs, Right side of the setup page, Assifn to port 1 6 places.

Gust some More Info, Chip

well, why i was responding to your last note i worked through the problem... thank you very much...  sure enough, i had mach2 programed so that the "charge pump" turned on my gecko drives...  after asigning the charge pump pins and ports it worked AOK!!!!  thanks again!
