LazyCam Beta

LazyCam is a BETA-release free importer included with Mach3. Its purpose is to import standard dxf, cmx, and other file types to allow those that do not use CAM programs to more easily generate Gcode to be run under Mach3. The Basic (free) edition of LazyCam that is included with Mach3 carries no cost, but will only output 50 lines of gcode if Mach3 is running in Demo mode. (Note: Requires the “.net 2.0 update” from Microsoft to prevent an error at startup.)

Mach3 Screensets

Screensets are different interfaces that can be created for Mach3. Screensets for Mach3Mill use a .set extension and screensets for Mach3Turn use a .lset extension.

All screensets should be saved in the Mach3 installation directory (typically C:\Mach3). Using a screenset is as simple as opening Mach3, clicking on View – Load Screens, and then selecting the desired screen.

The screensets available for download here come in 1 of 3 formats: .m3s, .zip, or .swf. The installation procedure for each format is slightly different.

.m3s

.m3s is a special Mach3-specific format designed especially for screensets. These files can only be used with Mach3 version 1.90 or later. Using an .m3s file is fairly straightforward.

  1. Download the file
  2. Double-click the file (this should pop up a “Screenset Installed” message after which the .m3s file will automatically disappear)
  3. Open Mach3 and load the screens like normal

.zip

.zip files are the ordinary compressed/archived filetype commonly used throughout the internet.

  1. Download the file
  2. Extract the contents of the file. Typically there will be a .set (or .lset) file as well as a directory full of graphics
  3. Copy the .set file into the Mach3 installation directory (typically C:\Mach3)
  4. Copy the graphic directory into the Mach3\Bitmaps folder (this may vary with some sets)
  5. Open Mach3 and load the screens like normal

.swf

.swf are Flash screens designed to be used with the Flash plugin.

  1. Download the file
  2. Copy the .swf file into the Mach3 installation directory (typically C:\Mach3)
  3. Open Mach3 and load the screens like normal
