General Mach Discussion / Complete circles from nowhere?
« on: August 05, 2007, 08:28:16 PM »
I have just started using LazyCam Pro under vista (Mach3 2.4).
It's great! And for the most part really lets me get to what I need
to do quickly. Now for the confusion.

I created a dxf text letter in my cad program (designcad) .
I opened the DXF file in Lazycam. Everything looked great!
Then I pocketed the letter using .125 inch as my mill size.
Again all looked well.
I posted the G-code and flipped over to Mach3.
This is where it got strange.  It looks like as it was doing
curves it tryed to do a small section of curve but instead
did a complete reverse circle.
Probably obvious but not to me. Any ideas.

General Mach Discussion / Scaling a single MPG for each axis?
« on: December 06, 2006, 10:24:50 AM »
I just implemented a single MPG to switch to each axis.
Each of my machines axis's have a different count to move an inch.

e.g. When I set up the mpg to move the X axis .100 per MPG turn it will
be different for the y axis.  Since my z axis has a very high count per inch
it is way different.

Can the single MPG be scaled per axis?  I would like to have the axis
travel the same amount per mpg turn no matter which axis I select.
