Software Requirements with Mach4:

Note: If any of these files opens up inside of your browser, instead of downloading to a folder, you will need to right click on the link and click "Save link as", and then it will download nicely for you.

Our Getting Started page has all of our current releases, just in case I forget to update this page with the current ESS or Mach4 builds.

Mach4 Hobby or Mach4 Industrial

Mach4 Hobby or Mach4 Industrial Build 4612 or newer.  Mach4 may be run in demo mode for up to a few minutes of testing before a Mach4 restart is required. A licensed copy of Mach4 does not have a run time limit issue.

 

ESS Plugin

Download and open the ESS Plugin Zip file and copy the "Warp9Mach4.m4pw" and the "Warp9Mach4.sig" files to your "C:\Mach4Hobby\Plugins\" folder or "C:\Mach4Industrial\Plugins\" folder . Overwrite the existing files if prompted.

 

WarpRunner Mach4 Plugin

All versions of the WarpRunner hardware (Serial Number S100 or higher) will run with the current software plugins. All WarpRunner units with serial number S600 or higher require plugin v011 or higher.

Download and open the WarpRunner Plugin Zip file and copy the"WarpRunner.m4pw" and the "WarpRunner.sig" files to your "C:\Mach4Hobby\Plugins\" folder or "C:\Mach4Industrial\Plugins\" folder . Overwrite the existing files if prompted.

Make sure that this WarpRunner plugin is enabled in the Mach4 Menu -> Configure -> Control... (used to be Mach…) -> Plugins tab.

 

WarpRunner Profile

Your motors, motor tuning and limit switches and EStop will be different, and you will need to adjust them to meet your system's requirements. However, most everything else has already been configured for you!

Your Mach4 Config -> General Tab -> GCode look ahead value should be 10 or greater, never 3 or less.

When you first open Mach4, in the Select Profile window, you may Import this profile, and then select and launch this profile.

 

Screen Set

Place this file in the "C:\Mach4Hobby\Screens\" folder or "C:\Mach4Industrial\Screens\" folder .

You may need to change the screen set selection to the most recent screen set: Menu -> View - Load Screen, and then select the desired screen set.

 

Required Script

If you are using Mach4 Hobby, place this file in the "C:\Mach4Hobby\Profiles\YOUR PROFILE NAME\Macros\" folder.
