I use AutoCad for all my drawings.
What i need is one or two simple drawings just to get an idea of what Lazycam needs
Let us say i need to turn a simple profile which has a straight part with some decorative
features . Should i draw the full profile of the part or just half along the Z axis.
Also will Lazycam need to know where the Z axis centerline for this part is.
Having a couple of sample drawings can help me figure these things out.

Thanks

I have managed to set up my Emco compact 5 and Mach turn and now
need to cut some profiles. I have never drawn profiles for turning and when
i tried some simple stuff Easycam would not load the drawing.
Can anyone share a few sample DXF drawings to get me started.

Thanks :P

Hi Zarzul

Ok that makes two of us .
I only needed two enable outputs as i am working on mach turn.
I am still looking to find a way to disable drive when there is no step signal.
This feature allows the drives and motors to operate much cooler.
The reduction gearing is usually enough so that the tool remains in position.

At least that is what i have experienced on my very home made mill

Hi Hood

Yes Enable#3 works with pin 14
The problem lies with the other enable outputs. Maybe they are switched off from somewhere in the program.
As for the outputs i just neede to know how t set these up say if i wanted a light or an extract fan.
Your help is much apreciated

By the way Hood do you ever get any sleep ? :D

General Mach Discussion / enable outputs
« on: September 09, 2008, 01:46:29 AM »
I needed to use enable outputs and assigned Enable#1 pin 1 and Enable#2 to pin 14.
Only Enable#1 worked.
I then tried all Enable outputs on different pins and only Enable#1 and Enable#3 worked

Also i need to assign some outputs for miscellaneous tasks

Can anyone help
