General Mach Discussion / Mach 3 putting in offsets? HELP!
« on: April 07, 2010, 03:29:42 PM »
Hello folks
 I'm trying my hand at doing some G-Code writing. the file I've attached is the problem. I have written all of the lines(copy and paste) the same, BUT when I bring it into mach 3, it shows all the cuts offset by .010. if I run the program, it does cut .010 off each cut. I've checked my offsets,(g54 etc) they are all zero, i removed any G41/42, I'm at a loss, can someone help me?

BTW I'm having fun "making chips!"

General Mach Discussion / Mach 3 moving the ZERO start point

Hello folks, I'm sorta new at mach 3 and lazycam. I've been searching but to no avail.
 My question, I import a DXF or even write my own G Code, bring it into Mach3, everything works fine, BUT I want to change the zero position, for instance when ever I bring in a project, the X,Y,Z 0 is always in the center of the project, I'd like to chose a diffrent location. I'm sure it can be done, but I cannot find the procedure, thanks for the help

BTW I have the "Full/licensed" of both lazycam and Mach3

Hello folks
 I'm new to this so its probably something I didn't understand. I draw most of my cad in Solidworks 2009. I save the file as a DXF, import it into lazycam, then attempt to post the g-code to Mach 3. Problems are 1. the piece does not show any depth, I'm making a Tee nut for my first project. I've designed it to be 14mm wide,15mm long and 16mm tall.
 2. when I look at the G-Code it puts some wild coordinate moves, for example the X axis should move 15mm, but the code tells it to go 30.00? HELP PLEASE? ???
