LazyCam (Beta) / LC never produces valid GCode
« on: July 18, 2011, 04:39:09 PM »
Hello there,

I just followed both tutorials for Lazycam and tried to reproduce the simple foam examples but my version does not create the gcode like in the video. I load LC and the AFoamTest2.dxf. Then pick my tool (3mm 2cut) which is able to cut 1 mm per pass. Then set the depth to -3 units and SetAllLayers. Chain#2 is missing in the resulting gcode.

Another example: I draw a simple 2D figure in TurboCAD MAC 5 and export it as DXF R12. The depth setting of -10 goes away every time I switch to the layer tab. The resulting gcode has only one single pass and no depth. I attached the DXF for review.

LC is version 3.00, Mach3 is 3.042.40. I'm a paying customer.
Thanks for any suggestion.

Hi all,

on my recently build mill, the roadrunner example seems to be smaller than 1 by 1 mm. You can hear the movement, but not see it. Is there anything I can do to use this file as my first test?
