I'm trying to use Mach 2 for learning the software without my cnc hooked up. I created a DXF file with DeskEngrave and loaded it. When I go to run it, it beeps and says the minimum speed of spindle reached - use lower pulley.

Anyone know what this means?

Thanks!

This is telling you that you need to put in a spindle speed that it higher... Please try adding in a S200 in the Gcode file. There is a wa to fix this when you have your mill but for now this is a good way to start learning!

Thank you and I hope this helps
