Book Build Motors Don't Turn

Postby ColinK » Tue May 24, 2016 10:43 pm

I built the book machine several years ago and it worked great for several projects until about a year ago when the computer died.

I have a replacement computer now and have installed Mach3 v2 then used the setup information in the "Build Your Own CNC Machine" book.

When I attempt to test my install, none of the motors on my CNC turn or make any sounds at all.

Do the book config settings work with Mach3 v2 or do I need a new config?

If I need a new config, is there a FAQ somewhere?

Thanks!

Fixed it.

I set the X, Y and Z "Step Low Active" to green check marks and my motors work now.

Whew!
