General Mach Discussion / Gcode more than 100,000 lines
« on: January 25, 2012, 07:21:27 AM »
I have recently purchased "PhotoVCarve" software and started to get into lithophane world !
After some trials, I have started a program generated by the software which is expected to finish in about 5 hours.
I have been checking the machine every 30 to 40 minutes, and found the machine is stopped near to the end  :o!!!!
On the Mach3 screen (I use 2010 screen), red RESET button is blinking.
(at this moment, I didn't check the line number)
I pressed restart button timidly, the reset button turns green.
And press "Cycle Start" button, the machine moves properly until the end  :D
Afterward, I check the program and find the number of Gcode lines is more than 100,000.
Actually the line number starts from N20, and after N999990, next line is N0 as pasted below;
Final line of the files is "N13650M30".

I'm not sure the machine is stopped between N999990 and N0.
It is not a serious trouble, but not good for my heart ....

Is there any limit about number of lines ??

Thanks for any suggestions.

LazyCam (Beta) / Make multiple holes on a part
« on: September 05, 2011, 06:02:00 AM »
I'm using LazyCam and NFS wizard for my milling operation. I love them  :D
Now, I'd like to make multiple holes on a part with end-mill.
For example, I need 4x 2.5mm holes (for M3 threading) and 6x 4.3mm holes (for M4 bolt).
These may be 2 to 3mm deep to make threads or bolt holes by a drilling machine afterward.
There is a wizard to make multiple holes by drilling ("Multiple hole position" on NFS),  however, I'd like to bore them in actual diameter to guide appropriate drills stably at later drilling.
I know I can do it if the"Cut circle" wizard is used repeatedly, also it can be by offset operation in LazyCam.
Is there any way to designate all holes at a time (at least, same holes at a time) ?  Please let me have your idea.
