G-Code, CAD, and CAM discussions / Mach won't load this parametric code.
« on: February 16, 2011, 10:16:29 PM »
Mach3 won't load this parametric code.   Is it a syntax error or just not within Mach's capabilities?  It's hanging on line 4 not liking the word 'If'.

Thanks.

Chris

G-Code, CAD, and CAM discussions / G41/42 question
« on: February 12, 2011, 06:26:47 PM »
I'm trying to generate a g-code program that zig-zags.  In order to keep the tool on the correct side of the cut I need to change the cutter offset at the end of each x axis motion.  The change from G41 to G42 and back again seems like it might be happening at maximum rapid speed.  What speed is used for the cutter compensation move and is there any strategy that applies to making a smooth transition between G41 and G42?
Thanks.

LazyCam (Beta) / Tabs

Are Tabs part of LCam Pro?  I'm not seeing any tool paths for them in the demo version.
Thanks.

LazyCam (Beta) / Prismatic shape along X axis
« on: February 03, 2011, 06:05:53 AM »
LazyCam's default is to generate a prismatic shape with the profile in the machine XY plane and the longitudinal direction in machine Z.  Is it possible to shift this so that the profile is in the machine YZ plane and the longitudinal direction is in machine X?
Thanks.

Newfangled Solutions Mach3 Wizards / Write wizard bounding box
« on: February 02, 2011, 07:27:40 AM »
I'm wondering if there's a simple way to get the bounding box for any lettering produced via the Write wizard. 
More specifically the easiest way to come up with the bounding dimensions.
Thanks.

Chris
