I have to buy a more powerfull computer that will keep up with a Mach 3 tool path. my existing tower runs out off data. can anyone recommend a good one? Windows 10 seems to be installed on all the new computers. does this work fine? I no mine is 64 bit but old. Thanks
What spec is your old computer ? You shouldn't really be having a problem with mach3 files, they don't require a particularly high spec machine Are you sure your not using the demo version of mach3 which will only read 500 lines of code.
older and refurbished and had to put in a larger video card. windows 7 with 4 ram. every so often cnc stop with message that smooth stepper ran out of data. mach 3 is full license and tried different lines look ahead settings and hertz settings. thanks for helping!
Your computer is more than sufficient to run Mach3. Unplug all connections and re-seat them to make sure you have good electrical contact. If your problem persists follow ger21's suggestion and contact the manufacturer.
