I'm in the process of building a CNC table for my plasma cutter. I am using a Gecko G540 along with Mach3. This will be a 3 axis machine however the Y axis will use two steppers; one on each side of the table.
I hooked everything up last night for testing. Mach3 was configured so that pressing the arrow keys moves the x/y axis and page up/down moves the z axis. However when pressing these keys only 3 of the steppers turn. I know that something is just not setup correctly because if I assign hotkeys to each motor I can get them all to turn.
Can anyone tell me how to setup the Y axis for multiple motors? Also how I could get one motor to turn in the opposite direction for a table like this?
