General Mach Discussion / G-code limit in Mach3
« on: November 13, 2018, 03:22:55 PM »
I've being using Mach3 for several year now, and lately I'm trying my hand at cutting 3d images.
I have a project right now on-going, I cut the roughthing toolpath took (about 7 hours) and I am trying to cut the finish toolpath (about 70 hours, 1/32 tapered bit about 6.7 million line of code).
I load the file, takes a while for it to load, when I try to start cycle, Mach3 is not responding.
My Pc is stand alone, running windows XP.
Hence my question is there a limit to number a g-code line Mach3 will accept and if so how can I split the lines in notepad to stop and start if I divide the lines in several parts?

Any help would be appreciated   ???

FAQs / Stopping and re-starting a g-code in mach3
« on: December 16, 2014, 10:05:44 AM »
I have a design that will take me 10 hours of run time to accomplish. I haven't experimented yet with the commands on running a g-code.
My question is; How would I go about stopping the g-code from running and come back to it the next day? Can this be done, do I need to leave everything on (Mach3, computer, motors etc.) or close everything and start from a certain line of code? Hope I'm making myself clear
Any comments would be appreciated  ???

I presently have 3 nema 23, 130 oz motors that I will be replacing with nema 23, 425oz. My question is do I need to re-calibrate my new motors, I'm running Mach3 with hobbycnc pro board.?
Any help in calibration values to input would be appreciated as a starting point  ;)
