General Mach Discussion / Router doing weird things
« on: March 15, 2009, 02:31:14 PM »
Hello all, I have been having a bad day with the machine.  It does weird stuff every once in a while.  Today I went out to make a little sign for a friend. layed it out in cut 2d looked good. Wanted to do some pocketing on it. Well the machine started out great then just out of no where it plunged all the way through the material I just wanted to go 1/8 I was working with 3/4" material.

So I thought it was me,So I started over after looking at everything. I did a small pocket did it great 1/16" deep looked great, so I thought ok. Started another sign, I plunged deeper then the code, but I thought I can live with that. Thenout of nowhere it did the deep dive all the way through. I have posted the code. I am still wondering what the j code is in this code. Please let me know if you have had this before of heard of it.
I think this is the code.

ok, here we are again. Had cut 2d and mach running great. had new bits come in today and wanted to try them out. excited to try a new cut.   Did a small design in cut 2d went to export to mach 3.  Does not show up in Mach 3 no g code or anything.  I can import g code from other designs I did yesterday of before, but nothing from today. I have both full licence for both mach 3 and cut 2d.  I just cut a small animal just about one hour ago with the new bits.  Try to do another and nothing.  Just weird

ger21, Second question, The mach3 is the full version. Not sure what you are talking about as far a 0,0. I have been watching the videos on the mach page and the guy places his x,y to the edge of the material re gen the toolpath and the job relocates to that location. Mine relocates off of the display??? I guess it is no big deal as long as the job is cut correct right?

Thanks again

Ok, here we go again, I have cut2d working as my cam program, mach 3 working as my controlling program. When I bring in a job to cut mach 3 places the job on the toolpath display in the center of the screen on the toolpath display. When i jog to the job on tha table and zero all axis out and regen toolpath it places it on on the very bottom of the display where I can not see it at all. Even on the toolpath tab display ( The bigger display) I can not see it. If I do see it it is very small portion of the job. ???.

Weird thing happen last night, I was cutting a very simple design out of cut 2d, job started good good speed was on the last profile cut depth about 3/4 done and it just stopped. It had no more g-code to cut, it is like it did not bring all of the g-code in when I imported the job from cut2d ???

Besides that I love the program and all it does. I have just been cutting for about two weeks and have alot to still learn.

Tweakie, yes I did get it figured out. Just trial and error is what it takes on my end. I read this forum about what other people did and then I will try it on my machine.  I did not mean to get everyone all excited about the mach license issue. Anyway, have to go cut some more wood.

Alright , I have all problems figured out except one. I have followed the videos on setting Mch 3 up and how to load a file. I am having the hardest time on trying to figure out how to get the router to find the job, What I mean I creat g-code in cut2d full version. I then post it to Mach 3, I then jog to where I would like the job to start, highlite machin coor and press ref all home button long one on the left side. re-gen toolpath and strat job. Router comes up and then just has a mind of it's own, but once it finds where it waits to go it does great.  If I was to do a 4"x4" job I would have to put down a piece of material 12"x12" just to have a little change of the router finding the job. Does this make since anyone. One the video it looks like he loads the roadrunner, jogs to the middle of the table where the material is and the zeros out re-gen toolpath and the job relocates to the new postion,mine does no relocate on the toolpath display, Please help.


Great I guess I will be doing that sometime today then..... You have been a great help Hood.

  Another yanked for the jaws of frustration

I guess then it would only show partial g code then, right? I fould where someone else had the same problem and his was demo too. I do not know if they resolved the problem by upgrading I am waiting for a reply. I thought it was 1000 lines. Show how much I know.. Will they email a upgrade number to me or do I have to wait. for mail.

I am having the exact same problem. Woundering if upgrading fixed the problem???? PLEASE LET ME KNOW,
