General Mach Discussion / Mach3 not loading g-code from lazycam
« on: March 12, 2012, 03:26:13 PM »
Just got a new computer and I have been using mach3 for 4 or 5 yrs now. So I loaded mach3 version R3.043.022 and the lazycam that comes with it. Everything works great except when I post the g-code from lazycam it does not automatically load into mach3 I have to load it manually from the mach3 g-code folder. So my question is how do I fix this problem or is this even a problem?? Thanks for any help with this.  ;D

This is my second cnc router that I have made.  The old cnc run great until the computer burn up and so I decided to build this one seeing how I had to get a new computer anyway. I can zero out this machine and run a file or just jog around the table and hit (go to zero ) button and it will not go back to the zero I had to start with. I have the motor tuning correct and I have run the steps per program in the mach3 and it is correct. I am running Keling Tech 425 motors and my driver board is a Toshiba TG6560 . I am not sure if the driver boar is cheap or not but the motors and driver board are brand new. I am losing steps or something crazy is going on that I dont not understand. It seems to be going negative past the zero that I had set before the movement started. The Z works correctly It is on a 1/2" acme lead screw. The Y and X are running a belt. The motor gear is 10 tooth and the gear on the opposite end is a 15 tooth gear. I have it setup for 100 steps per. I checked it with mach3 and it is correct. I am not sure what is going on but when I jog around the table or run a file it will not go back to the original zero. Any help would be great before I take a torch and hammer to this machine..lol  Thanks in advance Jeff

Thanks for the reply's guys. I run a small guitar company and the only thing I want this for is to make carved top guitar bodies and some inlay work. I have some serious back problems so this will be doing most of the work for me know so I just need a good stable program that don't take a Harvard Grad to understand it. I do appreciate everyone's opinions. Jeff

Just wondering if there are any affordable or free contouring programs for mach3. I know someone has asked this question a 1000 times already but now it's a 1001  ;D.

LazyCam (Beta) / Lazycam Contouring?
« on: April 21, 2008, 03:26:33 PM »
I have the lazycam pro and my question is will lazycam do contouring. Will it take a dxf and cut the contours on the cnc or is there something else I should be doing? I am new to this so any help is appreciated....
