6040 Chinese CNC settings

Postby cncdrive » Sun Jun 02, 2019 9:42 am

We setup a chinese 6040 CNC machine for a customer.
The instructions came with the machine was for mach3, but they were completely wrong. The pinout in the documents were all wrong.
We set the machine up for UCCNC and figured out the correct pinout by measuring and trial and error.
I think that an unexperienced customer could probably not figure the proper settings out on his own, unless if he is an electric or informatic engineer or if he setup some CNC machines previously.

And so I thought to share the settings file on the forum just in case if somebody will buy this machine and want to use it with the UCCNC.

The machine was made work with a UC400ETH.
The machine controller was connected to port#1 of a UC400ETH and because the machine comes without any limit/home switches we have added those switches (proximity sensors) to port#2 of the UC400ETH using a HDBB2 breakout board.
We have also exchanged the gantry holder aluminium sheets to new higher ones, but this was only because the customer needed the machine for an application where the parts and the stocks requires a higher Z clearance.

I'm attaching the settings in a rar compressed file and also a picture of the machine.

thank you for sharing that RAR file.

I uncompressed the RAR file but it only has a bunch of *.TXT files. plus one *.PRO file. What is a "PRO" file and how do I use all the TXT files in that RAR file.
thanks

Hi Eddie
The txt files should go into your uccnc macro folder and the pro file is the settings file for uccnc. (If i'm wrong on this let me know anyone) I think you better read the uccnc manual.

Cheers
