Mach3 - 3Axis Board with easyDriver Configuration

Postby PartDaddy » Mon May 14, 2012 11:24 am

Anyone updating the RepRap wiki page, is welcome to transfer any of this information. As of this posting date, we have begun shipping 4 axis control boards to make connection easier.

Using the 3 axis board with EasyDriver (4th axis), copy this file to the mach3 installation directory on your computer:

http://seemecnc.org/assembly/Slic3r%20Profile.xml

After putting this profile in the Mach3 installation folder, start Mach3 using the "Mach Loader". You will see "Slic3r Profile" in the list, click on it, Mach will start and all the settings will be correct.



==================================
This next file is a Slic3r configuration. I'm posting it here because all of this stuff works together. I am also going to post it in the other areas on our forum.

Slic3r_INI_SETUP_175mm_Filament_020_nozzle.ini

Oly & I keep these right in our STL folder where we keep our parts. Choose "load profile" after you start Slic3r. Usually, Slic3r is installed on a separate computer for g-code generation.

Hi,
Just wondering if you could help with the mach-3 config .xml file, I can't seem to download it. I'm also in need of some help with the configuration file for the tb6560 without the easydriver attached, I have one of three motors turning, the Y-axis.
Any and all help greatly appreciated.
