General Mach Discussion / Squares not square.
« on: June 19, 2013, 09:45:31 PM »
So I have a nice home built 3 axis cnc router. I draw up in turbocad to lazycam then to Mach 3.
Every now and then when I want to cut a bunch of squares it starts to cut the squares then when it gets to the corner
the y axis is still cutting while the x axis starts cutting before the y is done, leaving a rounded corner on one end and the corner I wanted on the other.
Also sometimes when cutting into wood when the z axis goes down, before it gets a chance to go all the way down to where I programed it the x and y starts cutting leaving unfinished cut wood.
Any help would be great, thanks.

General Mach Discussion / Mach speeds up on blue lines
« on: December 30, 2010, 09:57:16 PM »
Hello everyone, I just now got the machine to cut what I want it to cut, I'm now having trouble with blue lines and green lines.
When I upload a dxf in Lazy cam It shows blue and green lines.
When I upload the g code in Mach still shows blue and green lines, The blue lines cut almost 3 times as fast as the green, but its all on one chain.
So the only way to run it is slow everything down for the blue lines, But then when it hits the green lines Its super slow almost not even moving.

Hello everyone, happy new year!!!!  I just bought mach 3 because I needed more than 250 line of g code.
It says it is licenced now but when I do a test run it always stops at 250 lines of code sill.
when I load the g code in mach 3 it shows everything that will be cut up to 250 lines which is still only 1/3 of the project.
Im using the free lazycam g code maker, everything looks good when I save it.
Im guessing I didnt load the licence right, but it says its licenced.  :P :P :P
Any help would be great
