Guess I'll try a newer post, and then a re-install on the mill computer before I wipe the drive and start over w/ a new OS. Thank for help guys. Jimi

Thanks again , I do appreciate your help.  There is something else going on. G20-G21 is not it. Seems every time I start a new session something else is messed up. I am beginning to think I need to scrap Win 7 & go back to XP.

Hi folks, I could sure use some help w/mach3 set-up. Im using Win 7 32 bit to control my new Taig 3000dsls. I had to install a pci card for the printer port at lpt3 and change the address in port 1. I use Rhinocam 2 Pro for cad and the Mach 3 mm post that came already in the program & Mach 3 ver. r3.042.040. When I run the sample G codes everything works fine but when I bring in an .nc from Rhinocam the mill wants to cut in inches, not mm's no matter how the units or the G code are set. Editing g-code changes the numbers but not the units. Will a different post or .xml be the solution ? Thanks for any help you can give .JimiG

Im using Mach3 ver R3.042.040 w/ win7 32 bit. I'm writing G code w Rhinocam pro on another computer and transfering files to the Cam computer by flash drive to the C:. The .tap files from CNC samples in Mach do fine, but the .nc files I bring in from Rhino cam all want to run like they are in inches not mm's. G code is correct and native units is ok, set to mm's. I don't think my post is wrong but I don't know about the .xml. I'd appreciate any help. Thanks JimiG
