General Mach Discussion / Error message
« on: December 21, 2013, 01:07:54 PM »
 I am using the Mach3 lathe , and am getting an error message, "F word missing with reverse time g1 move"
 This does not happen, all the time, and never have it, when doing mill work. If i input a f 5.0 into code, it goes to next line, with same error code.
 Is there a fix, for this problem?

G-Code, CAD, and CAM discussions / 4 th Axis problem
« on: October 23, 2013, 04:10:02 PM »
 I need to make some cams, for a project, and did the code in BobCAM-CAM, ver 24. using their 4th Axis Wrapping. The code looks fine, when you verify it, in BobCAD, but when I try to run it using Mach3, on a Taig 4 axis mill, the feed very move, with Feed set at 30 in/min.
 This is the frist time I have used the 4th Axis.

G90 G54 X.5837 Y 0.
G01 Z.4151 F 4.843
X.3279 A186.382 F30.0

 First two lines work fine, but X,A line, motor moves very slowly.
 If I do the X, and A on different lines speed is good, but can not cut the part, that way.
 Does any one have any idea of what is wrong?

General Mach Discussion / Lathe Config
« on: February 07, 2010, 11:37:03 PM »
 I am running a Taig mill with  Mach3 mill, and it is running fine. I now have a CNC lathe, which I am running from the same control er, and stepper motors as the mill. The problem I am having is when I use Mach3 lathe the stepper motors only move the lathe X, and Z about 1/3 of the distance called for, in the code. The screen show it has move the distance called for. Any help for this problem?

General Mach Discussion / Mach3 Lathe
« on: December 20, 2009, 09:24:27 PM »
 I have a Taig mill, that I run with Mach3, and it is set up so I can take light cuts to make a deep cut. Adding a small CNC lathe to my tooling, and will need to take light cuts to get to finished diameter. Tried the Wizards, and they do it by setting the "X" value. Is there a way to do it in Mach3 lathe?
