General Mach Discussion / Accuracy Test
« on: November 05, 2012, 01:52:18 PM »
Hi, I was able to get an access to a Sieg x3 cnc. I have just downloaded a trial of cambam and did some basic shapes ( Circles 100mm, 200mm), I have generated the codes and uploaded it on Mach3. When I did a test run I have noticed that the shapes were under size. I do not know if I made a wrong input ( wrong cutter size.. ), but maybe you guys here can share some gcodes that I could use to test the accuracy of the machine. I do not know how to do gcodes manually :-(

Maybe some gcodes for some circles and squares....I have a 3/16 endmill cutter that I could use :-) I'll use a some wood planks to practice on..

I think the post processor for Mastercam for download over the internet is not
really meant to work well for mastercam x5 :-(

Yes the dimension is only 100 x 100mm and the dept of cut is  only 10mm
using a 10mm endmill.  When I load the gcode generated  to Mach3 it shows
inaccurate cut parameters.

I'm currently using cambam to generate g-codes for mach3 and so far it works well,
but with my mastercam it has been a failure :-(

I have downloaded and installed the mastercam postprocessor provided from Artsoft. Made a simple 100 x100mm contour with one pass -10mm deep cut and after I input the g code generated to Mach3 it didn't work properly.  Does the postprocessor provided only works with older version of Mastercam? Here is the g-code generated...
