Enabling the feedrate and Spindle overide sliders on Machine

Hi, The feedrate and Spindle overide sliders on my Machine Auto tab are greyed out, can I enable them for working with my Novamill? I'm on the legacy VR milling as I have a RS232 controller, (v2.28, i think had some compatibility issues with v2.31). Also having reviewed the electrical schematics for...

Novamill Stepper motor

I've been contacted by a collegue who has (on the back of seeing my machine) just aquired a run down 1999 Novamill, unfortunately its missing parts etc. It has been stripped of stepper motors and is missing other odd bits. Having looked at the assembly drawings the stepper motor part number is BI 00...

Re: Novaturn and FLSTEP

Thanks to all, she's ALIVE!! :-)) An old V1.6 EEPROM that came in a box of bits with my Novamill (compatible with FLSTEP) helped alot and Dosbox is essential, otherwise you get intermittent comms issues. Dont miss that you need to enable the comms ports in dosbox as real ports, that cost me a hour o...

Novaturn and FLSTEP

Hi, Having got to grips with my novamill (which is excellent by the way), i've taken the next step and got a novaturn on the basis that the flstep software was availble here. I've read the forum fairly thoroughly but cant seem to get FLSTEP to connect to the novaturn. The novaturn seems to power up ...

Re: Novamill and Vr milling 2.31

Thanks guys, thats very interesting. I have always suspected that the upload to the machine had been corrupted but wanted to exclude any other possibilities prior to trying the new software again. I think I'll use my new null modem cable to bypass the provided cables direct to the main board connect...

Re: Novamill and Vr milling 2.31

Thanks for the pointers, but checked the machine settings and all seemed the same as v2.8 (not 2.9 got that wrong last night). Thanks for the setup password. It seems that VR 2.31, or the novamill mnt file at version 2.14 has issues with my mill that VR 2.8 and mnt file 2.8 dont, so I've got that ru...
