Xylotex settings with Mach 3

Post by JoelV » Mon Jul 14, 2014 2:49 am


Brand new to this hobby that is desktop cnc. My mentor mentioned that chances are someone somewhere has already done the calibration to get the settings for mach 2 or mach 3 with the configuration. I received a Xylotex xs3525/8s-3 3 axis stepper board from him. I would like to use the standard NEMA 17's that came with my shapeoko 2. Does anyone have a similar setup that they could share screenshots or values for mach2/mach3?

Thank you.

The xylotex board has a unique pinout compared to the TB6560 and other DB25 boards.

Xylotex data sheet: http://www.xylotex.com/XS35V.pdf
Xylotex setup document: http://www.xylotex.com/BoardSetupA.pdf

Reading through the xylotex setup document, there is a link to a pre-configured mach3 file here: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Xylotex/files/

That should do it.
