I am new to Mach 3 and i am currently running through the Tutorial video's. In the tool path display what are keys used to zoom/pan/etc in the tool path window? I can reset the view and do the axis rotate but nothing else thank you for your help!

So I am very new to the CNC world in Terms of actually making sending a design from my computer to Mach3 o be cut.

I use Artcam for my design software and Mach3 for G-code to the machine.

My question is about Post Processor's I have seen mention of them many times and have googled them quite a bit.
I understand there function but most of what i have read is a explanation that leads me to believe i need another piece of software?
I think i have a post processor in Artcam Insignia that creates the G-code (toolpath) Once i have this i believe i just load it into Mach3 and start the machine up and go? Thanks for any clarification on this cheers!

Hey Everyone I have owned mach 3 for a few months now finally got my machine running (minus limit switches)

Great software!

Working on getting a PS3 controller working next, then the Auto Z tool touch off bit working, then the limit switches.

Built A platform CNC kit. Cheers!
