HELP!! does anyone run mach2 on a HEIZ cnc router?
« on: June 29, 2006, 02:34:12 PM »
Hi everyone,

I have just taken delivery of a German made s-720 HEIZ cnc router (www.cnc-step.com) and want to run it through mach2. The company has gone on a 2 week holiday and i havnt got a clue what the parameters/pin settings etc will be? Cheers

I'm thinking of purchasing one too.  They tell me I should run their Windows PCNC software.  I'd sure like to stick with Mach though.  Did they send you the DOS version?

It is a really well built quality machine but the PCNC software I received was the dos version which is terrible. I dont think it is worth spending an extra 756Euro for the windows version!! Stick with mach. I have got the axis jogging around now with mach3 so am getting there.

Hi
I have Heiz cnc router for a few months. It works fine with Mach3.
They send me PCNC software for DOS with router. Actually I don’t know
how it possible to use it and for what. So best place that I found for their
software is ..  ;D
With Mach3 Heiz router cut well, but I found strange error in moving between
cutting lines. Perhaps it is problem with the settings. I am trying to figure it out

Eventually got my machine working and cutting, tested using the engrave wizard in mach3. The software works great!!

Could you post a pin out configuration?

Here is the setup I am using...

Motor outputs:

X- step pin 3   dir pin 2
Y- step pin 5   dir pin 4
Z- step pin 7   dir pin 6
A- step pin 9   dir pin 8

input signals:

Estop pin 15

On config-slave axis: X is primary A is slave.

On config-logic: deselect A axis is angular
