General Mach Discussion / Re: G-code limit in Mach3

Hi Craig
Tried your trick and it work perfectly, it did take 14 minutes to upload the code but that's fine.
Have a great holiday season.

Hi joeaverage,
Thank you for your reply. Dumb question how do you turn off toolpath display?
Do you know if the g-code file can be seperated in multiple files to reduce the rendering?

General Mach Discussion / G-code limit in Mach3
« on: November 13, 2018, 03:22:55 PM »
I've being using Mach3 for several year now, and lately I'm trying my hand at cutting 3d images.
I have a project right now on-going, I cut the roughthing toolpath took (about 7 hours) and I am trying to cut the finish toolpath (about 70 hours, 1/32 tapered bit about 6.7 million line of code).
I load the file, takes a while for it to load, when I try to start cycle, Mach3 is not responding.
My Pc is stand alone, running windows XP.
Hence my question is there a limit to number a g-code line Mach3 will accept and if so how can I split the lines in notepad to stop and start if I divide the lines in several parts?

Any help would be appreciated   ???

I had written down the co-ordinates of all axis before manually zeroing them. Your advice work like a charm.

After replacing the blown chip I put the machine manually back to the starting point, confident it's accurate for the purpose.
Yes move to the point of origin and zeroed all axis.
Seeing what you are saying should I start from the previous line?
thank you for your advice I will execute the run from here program.

I was running a job an a chip blew. Change the chip,  Now I want to re-start were the machine stop. How would I go about it. A had finish a roughing path and was almost completed  the finish path, had maybe an hour to go.
The axis are all at home right now.
Can someone tell me how to proceed. it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks a bunch

FAQs / Stopping and re-starting a g-code in mach3
« on: December 16, 2014, 10:05:44 AM »
I have a design that will take me 10 hours of run time to accomplish. I haven't experimented yet with the commands on running a g-code.
My question is; How would I go about stopping the g-code from running and come back to it the next day? Can this be done, do I need to leave everything on (Mach3, computer, motors etc.) or close everything and start from a certain line of code? Hope I'm making myself clear
Any comments would be appreciated  ???

General Mach Discussion / Installing new motors
« on: August 19, 2013, 06:50:01 PM »
I presently have 3 nema 23, 130 oz motors that I will be replacing with nema 23, 425oz. My question is do I need to re-calibrate my new motors, I'm running Mach3 with hobbycnc pro board.?
Any help in calibration values to input would be appreciated as a starting point  ;)

Hi, My name is Raymond,
I live in Gatineau,Québec, Canada  ;). I am a printer by trade, just recently retired. I have always being interested in working with wood. Started to read about CNC two year ago and got my juice flowing.
After purchasing some components I was able to build my CNC machine (Had absolutly no expertise in mechanical or electrical knowledge), hence the name "capable".
Have purchase the Vcarve pro software and presently doing some trial runs. Some are good, some are terrible.
It sure make the days go by very quickly and am very please that such forum exist to seek members knowledge on some of their successes and failures.

Bonne journée
