Question #: 15424

Question: [Mach3 USB Interface Board] Does this board support indexing on mach3 turn? Planning to use it on a lathe and will do threading jobs

Current Solution

You have the ability to designate the 4th axis, commonly known as the A-axis, for rotary indexing operations when using a Mach3 USB controller.

To achieve this in Mach3, you'll need to:

Open the Mach3 software.
Navigate to "Config" and then to "Ports and Pins."
Go to the "Motor Outputs" tab.
Enable the A-axis and assign the respective Step and Direction pins.
Save your settings and exit the "Ports and Pins" dialog.
To calibrate the A-axis, go to "Settings" and use the "Set Steps Per Unit" option.
