Hi Jack. Welcome.
Are you able to jog the machine around?
Is your gcode less than 500 lines?
Are there drivers associated with that usb to lpt board?
Have you watched Paul Campbell's mach3 YouTube videos?
I am unable to jog.
I’m using the example g code found in Mach 3 software
How would I check for the correct driver.
Can you tell I’m new to all of this?
I will look for his video on youtube.
Do you have the interface board plugged in to the 24v supply too?
You want to get the machine jogging around first before you throw any code at it Jack
No, I had no idea there was a need. I did watch the videos and I verified I had the driver installed. If I use a USB to DB25 adapter cable would I still need an interface board?
Thanks for all your help.
Is this the board?
Geekcreit® 5 Axis CNC Breakout Interface Board For Stepper Driver Mach3 With US - US$7.18 - Banggood Mobile
It is the MACH3 Interface Board CNC 5 Axis With Optocoupler Adapter Stepper Motor Driver.
There are a number of iterations of those. Which do you have?
the latest one.
@LarsTveito is using one of these boards.
Check his thread to verify and maybe send him a pm rather than jacking his thread.
