    Hi all, First thread start here for me. Been wanting a machine for a while and a project came up where it is now a necessity. So this all is new to me.
    Anyways, I came a cross a C-beam Xlarge for sale.

    Came with a Surface Tablet with Mach3 and Aspire 8.5 already installed.
    Warp9 USS SmoothStepper
    Ebay Special Chinese Spindle with potentiometer for speed control
    Power supply
    4 x High Torque Nema 23
    4 x HY- DIV268N-5A drivers
    6 limit switches.
    1 Main Kill Switch

    I'm building a table for it and wanted to re wire it all to make it cleaner. It currently has wires spliced and jumped all over the place.
    The motors, drivers, and power supply is pretty simple and clear.
    The wiring to the Smooth stepper is where I need the help. It's my understanding that you can configure it many different ways in the the Mach3 software?
    Is there a "generic" wiring schematic ppl on here use so its easier for everyone to help each other?

    Sorry if this has been asked thousand times before. I tried searching but did not see what I was looking for.

    Thank you for the reply.
    I have been reading thru that first link and I believe its getting clear for me.
    I matched up the settings in the mach3 to the wiring on the USS and everything seems to match up as expected.
    So, I just dismantled the electronics and will re wire it when I finish the enclosure.
