Roland MDX-40A weird X-axis problem.

Hi everyone. I work at a goldsmiths atelier with emphasis on 3d manufacture. We're still keeping our old MDX-40A war horse working. We use it to mill our ring wax models for casting. The machine has some 20k hours in it so it's been lovingly used. Now we've run into a problem that we just can't fath...

Re: MDX-40 firmware update problem

I was actually able to solve the problem myself. For future reference, I needed to install the MDX-40A drivers on the XP for the updater to start sending the firmware update through the spooler. Go figure. Any case, problem solved.

Another obscure problem with our MDX-40A

Hi! I'm wrestling with a problematic individual of a mill with our MDX-40A. It's the same mill than in this thread, http://www.rolandforum.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=8701 , but since the problem seems unrelated, I opened a new thread. This time the problem is with Modela Player 4 v2.12 crashing ever...

Re: MDX40A and ZCL-40A, a new problem with z origin in VPane

Thank you for your answer. I managed to isolate the problem to a faulty cable and we're still waiting for a replacement from the local Finnish Authorized Service Technician. We encountered a new and obscure problem with the same machine though. I'll detail it in a new thread, since I'm not sure whet...

MDX40A and ZCL-40A, a new problem with z origin in VPanel.

Hi. First I have to tell you my problem is not the one you can bypass with the wire from the drill bit. This one, I haven't found any info on the internet about this one. So here's my problem: I work at a goldsmith who has both MDX-40 and MDX-40a with the rotary axis units. The older one, MDX-40 has...
