    So the buffer issue can be resolved by editing in cimco or is it because my controller is old and lacking memory?

    Hi toranacar,

    It's controls memory and buffer clearance but also RS232 speed can causes problems, not CimcoEdit.
    3D milling are tons of lines which can be a problem for older controls.

    Regards,
    Heavy_Metal.

    No worries. I hope I don't get too many issues like this as the cnc will be coming soon.

    good luck
    Thanks
    I spoke to cnc technician familiar with this cnc mill mcv op Fanuc om controller.
    He said I would need to re configure the ladder as it has no tape mode. Does this sound correct?

    When you have CimcoEdit you have basic DNC functionality, maybe it's enough for what you want or what you need.

    The programs I wish to do would be quite large. Quite a few contours etc drawn from mastercam

    on the machines with 0 type controller and that do not hae the tape mode swich will be no problem as you make DNC on and put on auto mode will wait for program coming from rs232.
    indeed you can not see the program running on the screen like in the normal auto mode but you can always see :distance to go and one line that is executed.
    So if you do not have the key for tape moe,do not worry,just make the DNC on,put on auto mode,start cimcoedit and send program to cnc and hit cycle start from machine.

    Sorry if I asked before but is there another software I can use besides cimco? I like cimco but just seeing what else is out there.
    I had a quick look at
    https://www.predator-software.com/Pr...re_Compare.htm

    Predator CNC Editor Express - Predator Software Inc.

    or

    Predator CNC Editor - Predator Software Inc.

    And Camsoft

    Im guessing these software programs are similar to cimco but perhaps more modern versions??

    toranacar,

    I have liked DNC4u. Not to expensive to buy and you get any updates for free.

    Hey guys, old thread.
    So after all this time i recently had a chance to position my Leadwell MCV-OP in my garage.
    First thing is to get an electrician to connect the 3 phase power.
    Can someone confirm this is the power connection in the bottom corner of the computer cabinet?

    Toranacar,

    Hard to tell, it could be your main connection... but it is in an awkward spot IMO. Are there other big terminal blocks in the other cabinets?

    "mains" swith should be installed. Follow the wires of the main switch.

    Curious that there is what appears to be a wire labeled "N" on that terminal strip as well.
    Can you advise if those wires got to the top or bottom of the main breaker?
    Usually the incoming goes directly to the disconnect (several codes and standards as to why). I have to wonder if that was possibly added for either a step down or isolation transformer.

    Hey guys hope all are well.

    So i got the 3 phase power connected, hope this picture tells a story?
    Issue is the machine appears to have no power at all. Like its dead. Might be something simple, might be something not so simple??
