    Hi OlfCNC, appreciate the hotkey guidance.

    When I click on one of the jog buttons on the screen, the page behind it changes color, turning gray.
    Don't know if that means something.

    Hey Peter. I think adhesives is a great idea, thank you. Particularly considering that the finish on my parts is certainly nowhere even close to the level of perfection that you are used to.

    All axes individually work fine when connected to
    ClearPath software but nothing moves with UCCNC.

    Have been combing through the manuals for
    CNC4PC's C11G BoB, UCCNC and UC100 all weekend.

    UC100 and C11G powered on.:
    Attachment 416000
    Check that you are in the right mode in the ClearPath software Position mode

    Check that you don't have the override checked in there software, this needs to be unchecked

    The motors should be locked when you power up if not they are not getting the signal / power to turn on

    You can check the output of the Breakout Board with a meter to see if you are outputting a signal when you make a move or jog an axes

    You know it all works because you ran with the Clearpath software. Its just getting the UCCNC controller to output the step and direction commands correctly. Its got to be something simple. In Mach3/4 the configuration of the Ports and Pins is very important to get right, what you need is someone else's set up file to look at, because those should be more or less standard. Getting the steps right is more of calibration process. You just need to see it run.

    BTW I purchased a low cost, about $120 or less hand held oscilloscope. I had to relearn how to use it from maybe 40 years ago but it really helped a lot.

    Thanks Mactec54, will do.

    I am confused. Is the ClearPath software still active when I run UCCNC?

    I thought you run the ClearPath software just to create a motor profile?

    Thank you wmgeorge, I hope it is something simple; just a 'duh' thing.

    Override in ClearPath software is OFF:

    The motors are locked up.

    That's good looking at what you just posted they are off as well so that part should be all good

    The Breakout Board has red lights they need to be green for operational

    Do you have the 5v board power correctly connected

    Do you have the EStop connected

    There was one trace wrong on the wing
    pcb boards. Made a new board.

    The machine is jogging!

    Also, the inside adjustment screws for
    the nut retainer were difficult to adjust:

    I will be cutting new revised mounting
    plates and ball nut retainers for the machine.

    Should be ready in a few days.
