General Mach Discussion / What have I got and what do I need
« on: July 15, 2011, 01:00:12 AM »
I bought a cnc router and Mach 3 and hope to make wooden gear clocks.
So far I have worked through the tutorials and can get the simulated program to run Ok.

Now I am confused and stuck with tool offsets.
What doesn't lazycam do if it is invoked by a licensed Mach 3.
Obviously gear teeth routed out can not be correct if tool offset isn't taken into account.
I suppose my question is do I have to buy anything else.

LazyCam (Beta) / Re: Lazycam can't find mach3

I am having to same issue. I have an old xp machine on my cnc router with a licensed copy of Mach 3.
I also have it on a windows seven notebook so I can work inside in the warm. This runs Mach 3 in compatibly mode.
The post to Mach 3 doesn't work for me either even if I call lazy cam from Mach 3.
Thinking back, I did a full install of everything when I loaded up both the tower and the notebook.

Just at the moment I don't have access to the cnc computer so I can not test if it works.

Tnx
Steve
