General Mach Discussion / Profile toolpath problem
« on: June 20, 2009, 11:14:45 AM »
I’m having a problem cutting a profile cut. I’ve created a simple rectangle with rounded corners that I want to cut with a V-bit. Everything looks fine when I preview it in Aspire. But when I run the cutting file on my machine; a ¼” before the end of the cut the spindle rises and leaves the cut unfinished. I thought initially that the ramping feature might be turned on but it is not. All other cutting seems to be working correctly except profile cuts.
I recently installed Mach 3 and I’m not sure if that might be the cause as I’m not yet fully familiar with all the settings in this program. Does anyone have any ideas that could help me. Which puzzles me the most is if I run this file on my old Mach 2 machine it runs fine completing the cut. Attached is the code generated by Aspire which I can't seem to find any problems with.

General Mach Discussion / Configuration file Mach 2 to Mach 3
« on: April 08, 2009, 04:01:58 PM »
I've been running Mach 2 on a older computer for years and have not upgraded to Mach 3 because the old computer did not meet the specifications. I have been given a computer that meets the Mach 3 specifications and I'm in the process of installing Mach 3.
 My question is can I take the existing configuration in Mach 2 and easily transfer it into Mach3 without going through all the configuration screens. Is there a file in Mach2 that I could just copy into Mach3 with these settings.

Thanks
