LazyCam (Beta) / LazyCam 2.58 with a DXF file from autocad
« on: November 14, 2007, 12:20:42 PM »
Hi ya all

i was wondering if anyone has come across this problem with doing some text engraving as its driving me nuts and unable to sort it out

right the problem am getting is when i import the text / drawing from dxf file (using autocad lt 2002) and theres text within the drawing

first it reduces the scale of the text down which is ok to fix + it moves the text about which again is fine but the main bit is i want a single line text for the machine to control the depth of the text and not to go outside bascily want a single line text so its easy to engrave

cheers guy and lady all the help would be very very gratefull

General Mach Discussion / Engraving tools to use
« on: May 29, 2007, 05:00:51 AM »
Hi everyone

Can anyone tell me when doing engraving with the write wizard...what are the best tools to use for a 3mm or smaller like 2mm text height?

and is it better to use lazycam to do this from a dxf because of the offset or is it better to use the write wizard..as i cant see it working of the offset

Thank very much


General Mach Discussion / Mach 3 / lazy cam / tool table
« on: May 15, 2007, 10:18:39 AM »
Hi all  :)

Am new to the would of CNC machines and I need some help with lazycam and the tool table with in the mach 3 program

I have Mach 3 Version / R2.0.0.48  and the new version/beta of lazy cam 2.0

The problem am having is with the tool table section from mach3 software

Do I need to fill this in with the tools I own ? and then within lazy cam I can selection the tools for the right work i.e inside and outside cutting plus making holes and so four?

Tool 0   =  1.5mm
       1   =  2.5mm
       2    =  3mm
       3    =  4mm

Is this right above ? plus when doing the g-code from lazycam will the mach 3 software stop for tool change when needed

Hope someone can shed some light on this

Thanks very much
