General Mach Discussion / Re: Mach3 & Artcam ramping problems
« on: February 01, 2007, 03:32:09 AM »

Well just to make life more difficult, we have version 1.84 of mach3 and in the config dropdown there is no referance to safe z setup....and in the material setup in artcam theres no option to have a top offset but i had a thought last night, would it have anything to do with the tool start depth for example it starts at 0 and tool finishes the cut at -5 so somewhere its got to go from 0 to -5 and in a slot 8mm long i guess it will have to ramp down to do this (maybe its a numb thought but !!!)

I will get that lot posted but ive just had a word with the artcam guy who showed me the live simulation of the toolpath's being cut and everything is how it should be, i.e. travels along, stops, goes down, stops and cuts the slot then comes back out with no ramping....Ill get the g code up here if i can

Has any body got any thoughts on this one...we are looking at using artcam insignia with mach3, The guy from artcam has been over and sorted out the post processor to work with mach3 (forgive me if nothing makes sense from now on as i really havent got a clue whats going on) when the machine goes to cut a simple slot the cutter ramps down into the cut even though all ramping has been switched off, the g code isnt telling it to ramp down, the displays shows that the tool path doesnt ramp down but it still does - well it had both of us scratching our heads !!! ??? ???
