Is there any documentation available for Lazycam?
I am struggling to use LC though I have listened to the tutorials


General Mach Discussion / Estop help
« on: November 21, 2006, 05:53:32 PM »
I am in the process of setting up my first CNC mill using Mach3 and a Xylotex driver.

First question is how can I set the microstepping on the system?, or check what it set at, default?

Secondly how shoulld I set up an Estop button, someone out there   must have installed a reliable system.
I have seen the description in the mach3  manual but would like  more detail since I am  new at this game.

General Mach Discussion / Toolpath screen size
« on: November 14, 2006, 06:31:06 PM »
Last  night I downloaded Mach3.009.
I cannot get thhe small screen showing the progress of the cutting tool to be a useful size.
With 1.84 I     had already done the adjustment though it was some months ago.
With 3.009 I can drag the screen using shift and the mouse until it fills the window but then when I start to test a program (road runner) the 'star' in the centre  fills the window and the tool trace cannot be seen.

What am I missing?
