Hi, Bill

I'd hold off using it for now, Some gremlin's sn-n-u-ck-in on it.

Thanks, Chip

Look under HELP, About Mach, What Ver. are you using.

Hi, Art

Was wondering where you were hiding out.

Chip  ;D

Hi, Machininginc

Try using a Fanuc Post I think it's close to what Mach want's at this time, I can see you've found yourself in a little different world at the moment.

Hears a link to a some what outdated manual, http://www.machsupport.com/docs/Mach3Mill_1.84.pdf

Under File, Load G-Code, Use this to load a G-code file by Browsing to C:\Mach3\GCode folder and select a file, Pic's below.

Hears some G-code to cut and past, It will take a little time for things to sink in, But will work thought it..

G90 G20 G61 G80 G40  ;  I added these to make sure Mach is configured for it to run

Hi, Tantrim

Look at this Post, It's probably what's going on with your setup.


Try typing a G49 on the MDI line and Enter key, Then try it again, See if that Helps.

Hi, Steve

You can override the feed rate on the fly or edit in feed rate changes in your G-code.

LazyCam Pro will do offsets and you can put different objects or chain's on dif. cut layer's and change the feed rate's, But there isn't a way to change the feed rate for radius feed's within the chain cut layer's, As far as I know.
