Thank you. I was able to download the site, but there are no fonts included so I am not able to use it. Do you have a suggestion?

Forum suggestions and report forum problems. / Printing multi line signs
« on: October 02, 2020, 12:30:25 PM »
I would like to cut multi line signs. Can I use the Load Wizards...Write function to do this?  for instance. If I want to cut
"IT was
a dark and
Stormy night":
load all three line and cut it in one set of G-codes, can I do it from the "Load Wizard.....Write" function? Or do I have to do it one line at a time?

I will check on both of your ideas. It is something obvious that I am overlooking  and your ideas give me a starting point. Thnks to both of you.

G-Code, CAD, and CAM discussions / Mach3 and Keyboard

I had shut my homebrew CNCrouter down for about a yearand recently fired it up again. Using the same PC, mouse, keyboard, programs etc. However I cn no longer use my up and down keys to move the around the table. I am sure I am missing something, but can find no instructions on the computer or in Mach3 that references the UP/Down arrows (buttons) or configurations.
Any ideas will help and be appreciated.
Thanks PeterJ

General Mach Discussion / Uploads from Lazycam
« on: July 10, 2011, 08:16:47 PM »
Uploading from Lazycam to MACH3 has gone haywire. Any DFX files I try to convert to G Codes using Lazycam are not fully loading into MACH3. In fact they only load to 250N and then stop, in all cases. Even older files that were already converted to G Codes only load to 250N. Any program less than 250N load fine. I purchased MACH3 from Artsoft and it is a licensed version. Why would this all of a sudden begin to happen? It worked last Thursday, July 7, but has not worked since. I completely deleted the MACH3 and Lazycam programs and reloaded. Other than IE there are no other programs loaded on this computer.  Any ideas?

Pete here. I am in Jacksonville Florida, no rain and it is hot. But it beats shoveling snow in Cleveland. I built my own CNC Router and it has worked very well so far. I have tried etching, cutting and carving, using many of the free DXF fies available on the various CNC forums. I use Lazycam to convert them to G Codes, allowing me to enlarge or reduce. I then load them using the Load function on MACH3, make minor adjustments if necessary, and run the program. Much success.................until yesterday.  For some unknown reason I hope you can help with, Either the Lazycam has stopped creating a complete set of G Codes or MACH3 is not uploading the complete program. Most of the programs converted to Tap prior to yesterday still load 100%, but any new DXF file or even DXF files I saved before yesterday, but did not convert, will not convert 100% to G Codes. The G-code seem to stop and the end of the first chain.  Please help. PS I also noticed that some the programs that are embedded in MACH3, such as Circle Cut will no longer work, but Write works fine.]?????? Pete
