I bought my machine about a year ago, got the SmoothStepper at the same time. I never installed the SS, though. I wanted to get a bit more speed from the machine, so I installed the SS today... I have a few problems, maybe someone can help me out?
What works: X, Y, Z axes, adjusting speeds, jogging with the onscreen pendant. All this works great.
What doesn't work: Spindle, jogging with hotkeys.
I get NO motion from the spindle. If I run the SS diagnostics screen there are changes when I turn the spindle on and off in MACH, but the spindle itself doesn't ever move.
On the hotkeys, I just get nothing! Clicking the onscreen pendant works great. I have reassigned the hotkeys again, but they still don't work.
I don't know what to do. I set the ports and pins and the spindle motor tuning all as they were in the original configuration, but the SS plugin has a Spindle section too. I matched that as best I could (PWM control and 15 for the "base freq" or whatever is there...
Anyone had similar issues?
I am using Mach 3.042.040 and the current driver (2.08.14) and plugin (v17) from Warp9.
