Hey guys been a while and I am finally getting back to working with my patriot VFD machine.
I am guessing most of you are like me, having to come up with the programming of mach3 to work with our machines.
My Patriot had nothing with it other than the software. I got an early version to where I had to install the sensor to enable spindle speed in mach3.
I have finally gotten my limit switches hard wired and working. And I am now trying to wire and program Mach3 to control my VFD drives (nowforever).
Has anyone done this and if so do you have written down the things you configured in mach3 to make it work properly?
That would be 90% of the work is programming the software to work with our machines. The hardware is the easy part. Getting the software of mach3 configured takes a lot of time, trial and error to get it working.
I am not faulting John at Shoptask he has been good to deal with, but it would have saved me months of aggravation to have the preconfigured mach3 file to work with our machines already done.
What we need is a thread here where we can post our XML configuration files for our machines.
