Question #: 15022

Question: [Mach3 USB Interface Board] Where can i find a xml file for maxh3turn?

Current Solution

You can use the mach3turn in the mach3 loader and simply enable the motor outputs. For the inputs and outputs, make sure to use port 3 for the port number and reference the terminal description for the pin number (i.e. IN2 is Pin 2). Don't forget to use the plug RNRMotion.dll in the plugins folder first.

  • where can I find wiring instructions for the Mach3 USB controller?

    You can find all of the wiring instructions for the Mach3 USB controller here:
    https://www.buildyourcnc.com/item/electronicsAndMotors-electronic-component-breakout-Mach3-USB-Board

    Scroll down until you see the videos. The wiring instructions cover wiring all of the axes, setting up the inputs to sense limit switches, setting up the outputs and how to diagnose the outputs, setting up an external relay to control external devices, and setting up spindle speed.

  • Where can I find information on controlling my VFD through Mach4?

    The best way to determine how to control your VFD using Mach4 is to read the MAch4 manual found here:
    http://www.machsupport.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/Mach4%20Installation%20Manual.pdf

    You will find that there a a few ways to control the spindle/VFD on your CNC machine or CNC Router.
    - The first and easiest is to have your VFD's power controlled by a relay. This will allow your spindle to have on/off control through Mach4 with an output pin.
    - The second is to have a controller output a DAC voltage between 0-10 volts to control speed on the VFD/Spindle. There is a termial on the VFD to receive this signal line. The controller will also have an output that outputs a high or low and that can control the on/off on the VFD.
    - The third, and more difficult of the three methods is to use a USB to Serial adapter (USB to USART or RS-485). The Computer plugs into the adapter using a USB cable and the adapter uses the RX/TX to connect to the VFD's terminals for communication. This will provide a great amount of control. Mach4 will need a plug-in to make this option work.

  • Where can I find the book many of the others have mentioned in their question?

    We do not offer any free plans. We offer the CNC Scratch Build Kit which includes plans to build a CNC machine from scratch. You can find more information about this by clicking on this link https://buildyourcnc.com/cnckitintro.aspx

    WTF!! It says right on your utube page free plans available. I'll paste it from Utube right here.(DIY CNC Router for Under $900 - Free Plans Available) Very misleading, I spent a lot of time looking for this stuff and am lucky I found this because apparently none of its available for free. Very misleading, dishonest sales tactics. I'm sure you've made money conning honest people out of there money but your not gonna get shit from me. After reading what other people here have written, and the fact that you lie about the cost, at least on UTUBE, It is clear your a liar and a piece of shit. carry on though by all means and continue making money being a liar.

  • [575] can the handwheel inputs be used for thc

    I have not tried using the handwheel inputs for anything other than for handwheel operation. I haven't had success using a THC with the Mach3 USB controller. The pokeys57CNC controller is a better solution for THC (torch height controller) and plasma cutter use.

  • [575] can we use two MPG for two axis independant axis movement

    You can use two MGPs (bare MPGs) to provide independent axis control. The handwheel input on this controller contains discrete inputs for the X, Y, Z, and A axes. These inputs can receive a pulse to move their axis. For instance, you can connect an MPG to the X-axis pin and the wheel will move the X-axis only.

    Of course, if you have a traditional pendant, you can move any axis independently from only a single wheel with a switch that selects the axis you wish to move.

  • I need the drive setting for the 1.5kw spindle drive to work with the spindle motor where do I find them

    If you purchased the spindle from us, you should have received a little booklet that shows all of the program settings. If you did not receive that booklet, please call us so we can send you this booklet.

    If you have the booklet, please let us know specifically what setting you would like to set and we can help.

  • [575] Hi, Can I use this board with a closed loop stepper?

    Yes, this CNC controller can be used with closed-loop stepper drivers and motors. The loop for control and feedback is between the driver and the motor. The closed-loop driver receives step and direction signals, which this controller will output which furnishes the driver with the necessary signals to move the motor. Additionally, the closed-loop driver can output a fault signal to this controller through the controller's input terminals in case the motor should encounter a situation that prevents the motor from moving so the CNC can shut down.

  • [575] Could thi board be used for a plasma cutter with THC?

    I have had no success with this controller paired with a THC

  • Where can I get a motor driver "TX14207", or a substitute with instructions?

    I would recommend using our 5.6 amp driver as a replacement for the TX14207 driver. Apparently, those drivers are found in the 6040 CNC routers and will not contain documentation since it is typically sold as a part of a greater assembly. Here is the link to the recommended driver:

  • [575] Why is a second PSU necessary for the limit switch and e-stop ?

    Because the USB board is powered by USB (+5VDC) from your PC. Your inputs (eg. limit switches) require up to +36VDC to operate properly.

  • Where can I purchase metric anti-backlash nuts as I live in Australia?

    We haven't really searched for metric lead screws and nuts. I tried doing a cursory search for metric sized lead screws and nut with your specification of 12mm from the previous question and found it quite challenging. If you can't find the correct anti-backlash nut, I would recommend getting a 1/2" lead screw and anti-backlash nut and change your coupling to a 1/2" for the lead screw side and the bearings to 1/2" ID bearings.
