General Mach Discussion / Re: edge finding/2.5D probing

Stirling,
      I'm finally getting to try out the probe I got from Arnie, but I need help. I'm somewhat "CNC challenged", and can't complete the probing routine configuration. Is there somewhere I can find instructions, tab by tab, to complete the configuration?

         Stirling,
              I've managed to load the probing utilities, but Im stuck with not being able to configure for inches. I don't know what values the various configuration tabs are looking for. I'm running a Bridgeport Series I CNC, that has an effective cutting area of 15" Y, 18" X and about 5" Z. The controls are Gecko 203's through a Bob Campbell breakout board. Can you, or another user, give me direction to configure the software. My probe from Arnie Minear, will be here in a few days.

Thanks,

         Hood,
             I realize that your post is a few years old, but I'm interested in your homemade probe. You can email me at dcdziner @ pacbell.net.

General Mach Discussion / Re: Moving work within table display

       I solved a great deal of the problem by going back into my AutoCad drawing, and relocating the drawing to the hypothetical X-Y Zero point of the screen, and exporting that relocated drawing to a new DXF file. When I opened the DXF file in D2nc, and posted it to G-code, it appeared far closer to the X-Y Zero in Mach3. Thanks for listening to a somewhat confused Mach3 user.

        RC,
          Here's the G-code file. Thanks for the help.

General Mach Discussion / Moving work within table display
« on: May 15, 2009, 12:48:13 AM »
         Guys,
             I'm able to move a piece of work closer to the X=0, Y=0 point, but the red traces that originated at the XY point are now redirected off the table display, and then back to the work piece. Is there a way to change this, and have the traces originate at the Xy point directly to the work piece? I hope you can understand what I'm trying to accomplish.

          Guys,
              I'm having a problem dealing with the screen display being 180 degrees from the way the mill cuts. It's driving me a little bananas. Can either the screen or the cutting be turned?
