    Re: GME's New 80/20 CNC Build - My Design

    Try reducing the current to maybe 6 amps or so on the drives, and see if that helps? You could always try a different drive, like a Leadshine EM806 and see if it's smoother? I've heard that they are....
  2. Re: mach3 is toggling outputs when loading gcode

    Don't have a copy of Mach3 here, but I doubt it.
  3. Re: mach3 is toggling outputs when loading gcode

    Yes, there's a checkbox in General Config. Ignore M calls when loading.

    Gecko recommends adjusting them at a certain RPM (check the manual). And it should be done on the machine.

    Re: GME's New 80/20 CNC Build - My Design

    Again, I think these are two different issues.

    For the homing, have you tried adjusting the trim pots on the G203V?

    Re: Gcode.txt Sample Test File Needed

    You can go to the MDI screen, and enter S10,000 in the MDI, to change the speed to 10,000.

    You can also use MDO to enter simple commands.
    G0 X10 will move to X=10

    And you can use NotePad to...

    Re: GME's New 80/20 CNC Build - My Design

    The first video appears to be resonance type vibrations from the steppers. I don't think bracing would make a difference there.

    The second video appears to be shaking from direction changes, or...

    Re: Designing new Router called Maximus

    I think you need a pretty big spindle to even be able to use an aggregate head on it, and the heads tend to start in the $7500 range, and go up from there. Then add the fact that they hang pretty far...
  10. Re: Need mach3 scripting and editor/debugger help

    Also, I'd try
    somenumber = Getvar(101) +3
    SetVar(100, somenumber)
  11. Re: Need mach3 scripting and editor/debugger help

    M99 should not work at all.
    It should be:
    Code"M99"

    And I doubt that it would work on the same line as SetVAR.

    The Q series just came out, so you probably won't find anyone that has experience with one.

    Re: Switch to mach 4

    I've never seen that in 10+ years of using Mach3, with the parallel port.
    It's not the ESS itself, but rather the plugin, and it's interaction with Mach3.
  14. Re: Plug and Play 2.2kW Spindle --- Worth the upgrade?

    At 45ipm, you should be spinning it at 8,000 rpm. The bits probably really dull from all the heat it's generating.

    You should easily be able to cut at 200 ipm @ 1/4" DOC and 15,000-18,000 rpm with...

    Re: Switch to mach 4

    That's probably an ESS issue, rather than Mach3.
  16. Re: Redid almost all electronics on 6040, except spindle/VFD, which isn't working now

    Most people would wire X1 and COM to a relay, and have the AXBB switch the relay.
  17. Re: Redid almost all electronics on 6040, except spindle/VFD, which isn't working now

    Do you have a relay to control the VFD's FWD or Run terminal?
    The analog voltage doesn't start the spindle, it just controls the speed.
  18. Re: 6040 - How To Set UCCNC Spindle Parameters on 6040

    You need to set the port and pin numbers for M3.

    Either that, or he received a large batch of very bad frames, and he couldn't recover from the losses.

    Re: mach3 misread

    I would say that you are most certainly losing steps. Or you have a serious mechanical problem. You don't just lose 100mm.

    I would set the steps/mm so that it's accurate at 2400mm. This should...

    Re: collets off from amazon

    No.
    Precise Bits "ER Style" collets are not actual ER collets. ER20 collets will not fit.

  24. Re: Where To Buy UCCNC License? NOT www.CNCdrive.com

    When I've purchased direct from CNC Drive, they send an invoice, and after you pay, the order goes through. I think it took maybe two days to get the license that came with my AXBB-E.

    Re: Why did this happen?

    If the collet is damaged, it can put extra pressure right at the edge. This, combined with any run out or other shock to the bit, can cause breakage. There were likely a combination of factors that...
