Follow the CS-Lab Forum thread to learn more about the topic described below. You can test the analog output in two ways: 1) With the "Zero Offset" parameter Switch simCNC to the "Disable" state (drives not active). Connect a voltage meter to the +/-10V...

How to block THC function? – a short guide
How to block THC function? THC functions are blocked by setting the "Anti-dive vel. (%)" parameter to 100. To do this, set the machine parameter 4061 to 100. To unlock THC, you must restore the previously saved value of the parameter 4061. 1) From a macro: To block...
The “PID Fault” (e-PID) and why it shows up.
What is the "PID Fault" (e-PID), and why it shows up? One of our customers received the error "PID Fault mkit: 1 error 251" and asked what it meant. In simple terms, it means that "MotionKit" (in the case of Mach3 - an axis, and Mach4 - a Motor) number 1 wanted...
What causes Python path error?
The main question is, what did you do that caused this problem? This error occurs when: 1. You want to run simCNC from a copy of the simCNC folder. By making a copy of the entire simCNC folder, simCNC loses access rights to the files. To fix this, you must manually...
CSMIIO/IP-M controller and a SANYO DENKI stepper drive
We created a connection diagram that presents CSMIO/IP-M
and SANYO DENKI PMM-MD-53031-10 with various CNC software.
Laser engraving support in simCNC
SimCNC supports the laser in three ways (synchronous outputs): 1. Engraving with CAM software built into simCNC - a photo loaded instead of a gcode file. After loading the photo, the interface of the built-in mini CAM software appears: The built-in CAM software uses...
If you have not used the simCNC 3.410 so far, backup your profile before installing it, because the simCNC 3.410 profile is incompatible with earlier simCNC versions.
Comparison of tapping options in Mach3 and Mach4
Tapping in Mach4 works in a different way than Mach3. Mach3: M84 is rigid tapping, and it is done only by a CSMIO/IP motion controller as a fully autonomous feature. During rigid tapping in Mach3, the Z-axis position is synchronized with a current spindle position....
Connection diagrams of CSMIO/IP controller to A2 VFD (simCNC and Mach3 / Mach4)
We present the next connection diagrams of our controllers with other devices. In the article below you will learn how to properly connect the CSMIO/IP controller to the A2 VFD based on three control software (simCNC, Mach3 and Mach4).
E-PID fault when using CSMIO/IP controllers and Mach3/Mach4 control software. Reasons and advice
The E-PID error is caused by a significant difference between the set position of the control software and the actual position of the controller.
