Installed Mach3 after hard drive failure
« on: August 10, 2008, 04:47:56 AM »
Hi all

I installed mach on a new hard drive after my origanal drive failed but now I can not get the turret going.I did copy the XLM file to give me the same setup and i did check that all the settings were correct. I use the same Xp  software as before. It seems thet it is not reading the M6 macro. If you call for atool change the dro does change but the turret is not moving.Any suggestions

Did you remember to copy over the M6Start.m1s into the correct profile macro folder?

Well if its definitely in the correct profile in the macro folder then it should work. Any more info about the toolchanger? How does it connect ie is it Modbus and PLC or just I/O from the PP or Modbus through ModIO or Arturos stuff?
 Is this a mill or lathe?

In General config, top left,  what do you have set as tool change option?

Hallo Hood

It is a lathe.I do not know if XP service pack 3 has a problem with the set up. I am re formating the drive and will only load Xp with service pack 2,this is how the previose drive were set up.I hope this will help.

Thanks
