I have been running Mach3 with inch gcode files.  Now I have a series of gcode files that are metric.  What do I need to do to be able to switch between the two measurement systems?  I tried a few thing but nothing seems to work.  Maybe it is not possible?

Thanks.

Understand what you are saying and can adjust for it in the future I think... but why does it execute fine in 1.9 and not 2.0?

I had the same problem with version 2 so I reverted back to 1.9 and cutter comp works fine.

Sorry I was out for a while.  Here are the dxf and gcode files.

Well, I decided to upgrade again to 2.x and again I ran into major problems.  I wanted to cut a simple contour with cutter comp and it looks like it just can't do it without running off location by a lot.  Also if I shut down Mach and restart the location it runs off is in a different location on the tool path.

Below is a screen shot of what happens.  It is cutting the contour fine then at some spot it starts going in the opposite direction to what the code is telling the controller.  I paused the feed to take a screen shot but the tool was moving in the positive XY direction before the pause.  There is no move to the positive XY, at least the where the readout now showing.

Any insight would be helpful but i guess I will revert back to 1.9

I like the NIST traceable post!

I guess you can make it a lot cheaper.

How many vendors show up for this show?  I am not really interested in the exhibitors since I do not do modeling.  But there is another show this weekend in Philly that I want to go see and I don't think I can make both.
