Hello Brian
When importing a DXF drawing from autocad into mach3 turn is it possible to create a roughing tool path in mach3 or has this got to be added at the time of drawing.
cheers Gary

Just downloaded the new version of mach3 with lcam, i,m using it on my newly built cnc lathe & am a newcomer to cnc work. I am able to import an autocad drawing in dxf & save in Gcode but when putting it in the auto screen the file is loaded vertical i,e it would be a facing profile rather than a turned spindle as drawn.
Also is there a part of lcam that will be able to work out the roughing cuts if the stock diameter is given.
thanks help Gary.

General Mach Discussion / DXF imports

Being new to this game I have downloaded Mach3 turn & on drawing a spindle on autocad & saving in DXF,importing to mach3 & then generating G-code the spindle appears to have no thickness.On the drawing it is approx19mm dia, but on the mach3 screen it seems to be around the centre line, is there a simple offset I can add to the g-code  or am I just talking silly.
thanks Gary.
