Hi All,
Just tested the pins - and it follows Chips layout -  axis pin's 2,3,4,5,  axis pin's 6,7,8,9,  axis pin's 1,14,16,17
This confirms my theory that its a software related problem, since the machine works in maxnc perfectly, I have x,z control in Mach. I've swapped motors on Y with a known good one and it still doesn't work. And finally the pins match what Chip was saying was the correct layout.

I've also tried a second PC running the same version of software.

Running the latest demo version.

This is interesting.
David

Hi, David

I've checked 2 versions of Mach3 hear for outputs both seem to have outputs ver 3.042 being one of them.

A friend has one of these mills, I'll see about checking this out.

Still looking for the Y-axis. Any new suggestions?

Thanks.

Dave,

Try this xml for your mill and see if it works. I had my maxnc running with this configuration. You may have to make a few adjustments in the motor tuning, etc. to suit your mill.

Progress.

Jeff, that got all three steppers buzzing! Now I just need movement. Any suggestions? Prio I could never get the y-axis to buzz, but the other two moved.

Ah you have CL mode selected vs. wave drive.

Hi Dave,

Was just wondering if you've had any luck with getting your axis's to jog. There are lots of documention on the MaxNC 10 here in the forum, just do a search for it.

Not yet. I've been able to get them to buzz (spin) in all directions under CL mode. Changing motor settings, I can adjust the frequency of the buzz..

And again under waveform mode I have two directions, but no third.
