.IMPORTANT. Once you have Mach3 running the way you want it to, make a copy (or many copies) of your whole 'C: Mach3' folder and store it somewhere safe.If I ever need to restore or replace my computer, I can just install Mach3, and then use my copy of the 'Mach3' folder to replace the one on the PC and I am all set to run.
The Slic3r project has been under active and massive development. Make sure you get 1.3.0 now or try the development builds!Free. For macOS, Windows and Linux.

What is Slic3r?
Compatible with your printer too. RepRap (Prusa Mendel, MendelMax, Huxley, Tantillus..), Ultimaker, Makerbot, Lulzbot AO-100, TAZ, MakerGear M2, Rostock, Mach3, Bukobot and lots more. And even DLP printers.
Fast G-code generation is fast. Don't wait hours for slicing that detailed model. Slic3r is about 100x faster than Skeinforge. It also uses multithreading for parallel computation.
Lots of input/output formats. Slic3r reads STL, AMF and OBJ files while it can output G-code and SVG files.
Do you like the graphical interface or command line? All the features of the user-friendly interface are also available from command line. This allows to integrate Slic3r in your custom toolchain and batch operations as you like.
Open source, open development. Slic3r is open source software, licenced under the AGPLv3 license. The development is centered on GitHub and the #slic3r IRC channel on FreeNode, where the community is highly involved in testing and providing ideas and feedback.
Dependencies? Nah. Slic3r is super-easy to run: download, double click and enjoy. No dependencies needed. Hassle-free. For MacOS X, Windows, Linux.
dual multiple extruders. Print beautiful colored objects, or use your secondary extruder to build support material. Or put a larger nozzle on it and print a faster infill.
Use brim for the best adhesion. This unique feature improves built plate adhesion by generating a base flange around your objects that you can easily remove after printing.
Microlayering: save time, increase accuracy. You can choose to print a thicker infill to benefit from low layer heights on perimeters and still keep your print time within a reasonable amount.
Compose a plate but print one object at time. Use the built-in plating interface that allows to place objects with drag-and-drop, rotate and scale them, arrange everything as you like. The sequential printing feature allows to print one complete object at time in a single print job.
Cool cooling strategies. A very smart cooling logic will regulate your fan speed and print speed to ensure each layer has enough time to cool down before next one is laid on it.
Manage multiple printers, filaments and build styles. The configuration handling system was designed for people working with multiple machines and filaments: you can save configurations as presets for each category avoiding to multiply your saved configurations.
Enjoy support material. Automatic generation of support material for overhangs.

Pluginmach3usb.dll for Mach3 (Ethernet and USB)
Copy Mach3usb.dll infolder C:mach3plugins (Or the correponding directory on your machine).
Then start Mach3 .They is a new dialog box 'Motion plugin detected'.
Activate some axis
Indicate for eachaxis port and pin number and also polarity of signals DIR and STEP.
Stepper motor driverusually require positive pulse.
dir polarty change direction of rotation
Activate some outputs
Mach3 can control theSpindle from GCode with M3/M4/M5.
Indicate what pincontrol the spindle relay if available. Output #1 is normally used.
Others outputs can bedefined and configured (HiStep has 12 outputs)
Enable are signalswhich are always activated by Mach3 when not in EStop mode.
Associate Output#1with the spindle command
Standard signals(Spindle , Flood, Mist) can be configured to control the outputs#N
Configure some inputs
Standard functions ofMach3 (Limits ,Home ) can be associated to input pins of HiStep.
Enter port 1 and pin(10-13 , 15).
Configure speed andacceleration
Select units in 'Config/Select native units'
Press 'Save axissetting' for every axis
Slave axis are handled also by the plugin
Send the wholeconfiguration to card

Press'Reset ' in Mach3 to enter or leave EStop mode and also to upload any required configuration to the card ( ie pins , speed and al other)
Activate keyboard jogin Mach3
Activate motor movement with keyboard jog
Enter MDI commandsand run GCode directly
Type 'G0X10' in MDI tab.
Type M3/M5 to controlspindle output
Look current steppercoordinates
Stepper motorcoordinates are maintained by the CNC card . They are displayed in Mach3 mainwindow.
Check io status inDiagnostic tab
Configure limitswitch and home
Limit switch blockany movement when activated
Use Home command
RefAllHome'command the specified action :
-Jog to the homeswitch until activated
-return in theopposite directiion until desactivated
Important parameter are homingspeed (fast or slow ) and homing direction
Use PWM output
The 32 bit and later adapter support PWM output (for spindle speed)
Go in config/pulley ratio to set maximum speed of spindle. (the PWM output will be 100% duty cycle at maximum speed)
Go in config/port and pins/motor pins to select PWM pin (Spindle pin)
Set spindle pin number and optionally 'Active Low' to revert signal.
Test spindle :
In MDI G-code , type M3 S300 (speed 300RPM
Or use interface to set spindle speed and on/off state .
Software interpolation (32 bit adapter only) :
Software microstep produce more precise time control, specially at low speed . Enter N>1 as software microstep and multiply by N your Mach3 StepPer setting All movement will be lot more smooth (and low noise) .
When using software microstep multiplicator, Mach3 motion planner will work exacly as if the StepPer parameter was much higher than the physical one, without reducing maximum speed and frequency!
Press EStop from inactive to active (or twice if already active) before tuning motors.
Plugin type and port number :
full motion plugin(Mach3 use the plugin for all motor movement)
IO Extender (Mach3still use parallel port for motion but use the plugin for some of it'sinput/output. Must select a available parallel port number.
A second port number (default 2) may be entered for dual port USB card.
Restart Mach3 if anychange.
Auto-off on enable signals:
The adapter can automatically cut enable signals when no move after 0.5 second (approx. default), this is very convenient and should be checked.
for 32bit card : auto-off duration can be set
USB and Ethernet :
USB : Allow USB connection
Ethernet : Allow Ethernet connection
IP address : adapter IP address
Auto IP : Allow auto detect network adapter
Press EStop to disconnect/reconnect for any change USB/Ethernet or IP address.
Ethernet IP update and detection
From plugin configuration dialog box press 'Ethernet' button
This open the network card update tool
Select a card from the list (not required if only 1 card , first entry is taken )
Fill in the modified parameter and press 'Update' button.
The card then reboot automatically with new settings .
Note: If the IP address is incorrect , the update tool will still work because it does not use the IP address to talk to the card.
Use PROGRAM PAUSE / PROGRAM STOP
Cycle Start : Start a GCode program
Feed Hold : Pause GCode program
Stop : Stop GCode program
With the plugin , Stop is immediate effect with flushing data buffer , Hold (or pause) take a few second because movement continue until the data buffer come empty .
When using 'Feed Hold' , press 'Regen toolpath' before 'Run'. This will ensure a correct continuation of GCode program.
|Adapter||Index input pin|
|Combi MZ USB+Ethernet||pin 12|
|USB V2||pin 13|
Firmware update (32 bit card only)
Enable alternate firmware : if an alternate firmware has been loaded , enable the card to use it (instead of the default factory ) .
Firmware tool : allow to change the alternate firmware
Note : the card always keep protected the initial firmware, and boot on the initial firmware when restarted ! Then switch to alternate firmware only on request of Mach3.
Sometime , they maybe a time delay between the current GCode line displayed by Mach3 and the one executed on the card. They maybe also a delay of PROGRAM STOP / PROGRAM PAUSE. This is due to internal command buffer of the USB or Ethernet card. You can reduce the buffer size in plugin configuration , by entering a value <> 0 in BufferSize (KB) setting . 8KB is a reasonable value.
