Hood, I figured it out thank you. I can now produce what I need as soon as I find the correct post processor for my machine. I have what I need I just need to figure which processor I need to install to generate the correct g-code.
Thank you everyone here has been a very big help and when I get into trouble it's nice to have someplace to go.

Hood I have pulled up a file to cut out a sink template. Started the cycle and it does not run correct. It's like Mach 3 is not reading the g-codes correct.

Hood, you are a great help. Thank you. Now I have a little more work to do to figure out how to get Bobcad V26 to generate the proper g-code. You have saved me day's worth of trial and error.

My limits are not prone to vibration. When I reference all  the machine comes to a stop at all limits and backs away from each about a half inch or just enough to open the switch. Which is what they are supposed to do - After they home the machine and then reset they become limit switch's. What I need to figure out is how do set that distance the machine backs off to - to be set where 0X 0Y 0Z is. I have a fence fastened to the machine so I can put a block of material in it - thus is is set at 0 - which technically is about 6" X - 4" Y these measurements are from the point where the machine touch's the limits to reference and then should go to what I call home.

How would I set mach up to end the machine at 0-X 0-Y  0-Z.   Which technically is 6" X  4" Y and -1 for Z  After the machine touches all the limits and backs away for 0

Hood, that worked great. Now I have set home at 4X 4Y -2Z. They do not go to the distance I have set.

I have configured mach 3 . In the diagnostics everything works as should. When I reference home z goes up Y comes to the limit X does not move at all. When the Y limit is met everything stops.

How do I get to talk to anyone that knows how to configure this thing to work? Paying someone is not an issue time is. I live in NW Indiana and would be happy to pay someone to come here to help me get my cnc running again. I am about to scrap the whole thing - buy another one where someone installs it and makes it run
