PostSubject: I just bought one !   Thu Jan 13, 2011 2:20 am

Hi everyone,
I want this post to tell the story of my purchase.
First I send questions via ebay to ahtoku and I get an answer very quickly, so I bought the little 3018 on the way (january, the 11th).
For the moment, I'm waiting for it.
I'll tell you how will be my first steps with this excellent little machine ! Wink

Hi everyone,
I just recieved my cnc yesterday and I'm installing it for the first run !
By the way, I regret that it doesn't come fully in parts because it would be safer during the delivery (I had problems with my delivery compagny).
So, at this time I just mount all the parts but don't plug it, my dedicated PC is not finished yet.
I'll probably come here soon for help and advice. Wink

So, I made my first run today, but I sould say I'm a bit disapointed by my 3018T : to many scratch and even bump on the body on a brand new machine (and many of them can't have been made during the delivery)...
And not the least a manual !
I have to test in Mach3 to find the good parameters. And even then, I can't be sure I found the true ones.

I bit disapointed then, but I still play with.

It works great, but I have to admit I bought another drivers and breakboard for microsteps. It definitively change my machine : smooth moves, less noise !

By the way, I can't find the internationnal references of the connectors (the ones plug in the back of the box for motors and pump and spindle), could you give it to me ?

Thanks ! Wink

Hello chicolisto,
I'll look after a doc I downloaded with the MACH3 parameters and post it here as soon as I find it.
But what is exactly your problem ? Do the motors run at all ? Is there current in the drivers ?

So, with more details I probably could help more.
