So what is your frame going to look like ?? Do you have a model to view ??
I have not yet even decided exactly, still looking around.
Before I also have to be able to work with my electronics.
There are even Mach3 XML file on that bob CD, but still no luck. Slave not work, when running on G-Code.
I don't know the answer as I have never used mach, but is there different software that you could try?
I bet there's a check box somewhere you are missing....
good luck I will be watching for the answer....
Mach Software (ArtSoft software) > Mach 3 slave axis issues
looks like it might be your breakout board, some don't support slaving...
Thaks for replay snokid!
I have come to the same conclusion. Do breakout-board does not support USB or have a problem with RNR motion plugin which must be led between the computer and the card.
It seems that it is a pirated copy.
the easiest way to solve the problem will be to connect the 2 x drivers to the same axis port on the controller
make shore you are connecting them in a way they will rotate in different direction
Thaks for replay amos ben amos!
That would be one option, but is also the most appropriate solution? It is still debated in forums for that solutions is good or not?
i used to be connected that way for a while and had no problem, i also read in planet cnc forum that it's perfectly fine
it can be a problem if the drivers is build in the controller because most of time there is not enough amps in one driver to drive 2 motors but as i can see its this is not the way you are connected
Thanks, I'll try this option.
Here, a heated dispute on the subject:
2 motors on X how do I setup Mach3 - Page 2
It just depends on how much power you need to move the axis. Most 3d printers use 2 z motors on one controller. Even my very heavy sea-ox was able to move on 1 y axis motor
Plan to use on Y axis two those stepper motors: 3PCS 1.9Nm Nema 23 Stepper Motor 2.8A 4-wires 6.35mm Shaft DIY CNC Router Mill
Right now i have set 1/8 microstep and 2.8A current of each motor driver. Are that correct?
The plan to begin mill mostly hardwood/softwood.
Maybe i use ooznest frame kit and raise z axis a little deeper cut - swapping lower rails 40 to 80.
Generally, it would be more to the liking Cbeam solution.
Looks good on the 2.8amp setting. The microstepping is a choice thing. I actually run mine at 1/2 microstep. It gives me 2/100th of mm accuracy. That's enough for me and I can always change it if necessary
Added two drivers to board Y port and swapped one pair motor wire for reverse run - looks like working that way. Thanks guys for that!
I do not know if there are not any complications later. We hope, however, that not.
