I have tried to implement a barrell with the help of the OD3 wizard for turning.
I wanted to make a barrell shape from a 70 mm long cilindrical piece with a diameter of 34 mm.
The rounding of the barrell should be by a rdius of 100 mm.

Unfortunately it gives a failure to implement this because it seems that the max radius of the wizard OD3 is only half the length which means not bigger then 35 mm.

it is unclear to me why this is so restricted since a barrell form should be possible to implement.

Anyone has a solution for this??

kind regards,

LazyTurn / Problems starting up with lazyturn
« on: January 26, 2016, 04:55:53 AM »
I am working with mach3 now for two years.
When I tried to use lazyturn I follwed the guidelines but no G code was presented.
The strange thing is that when I followed the example stated in Lazyturn quick and dirty the cilinder showed exactly the same as in the example , the tool was made BUT after filling the rough profile box IT IS NOT SHOWING  atoolpath alongside the length of the cilinder but only at the front end (the facing of the cilinder) so the distance between the yellow and green Arrow.
This means that no metarial is shown to be removed.
What am I doing wrong?

can anybody help me please?

Kind regards,

General Mach Discussion / backlash on Z axis
« on: April 08, 2012, 07:29:25 AM »
I have made a conventional mill tot a CNC mill.
There was a backlash item in all axis.
The X and Y axis are solved since I measured the differences and studied the solutions in this forum (thamks)
However teh backlash compensation in the Z axis direction is not going to work.
Why, because the compensation must only work in one direction (only in upwards direction) because due to the gravity the spindel lowered too much).

Is there any solution for this becuse now if I lhave to lower the spindel 10 times , every time it lowers the drill holes becomes deeper due to backlash.

Ultimately I have to change the G coding with a backlash value every time it goes upwards again what is very anoying!

Please can anybody help??

Newfangled Solutions Mach3 Wizards / cripled code
« on: October 26, 2008, 08:38:07 AM »
When I make a code using the wizard for a circle etc.
it seems to be allright.
But in the middle of the code every time the last sentence is given and the process is stopped.
Any idea what this can e?
(any electrical thing?)
The original code before downloading seems to be ok.

Kind regards


Dear members,

Any idea what time I have to wait to receive my software after payment.
I'm very interesting in the working of the newfangled wizards.
