General Mach Discussion / Re: Is this drawing too much for LazyCam?
« on: January 02, 2007, 02:18:50 PM »
Hi, Mills

Try this one, loaded it into my Turbocad 8 and saved it loads fine now.

When you save your DXF save it in oldest Acad DXF format you have, ver 12 or 14,r

LazyCam  is-sent compatible with all DXF formats.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, Brian

2 simple ones hear, seems like G52, G53, G92, are strange.

Anyone jump in if you now whats going on.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Brian

The file is just below last picture.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Art, Brian and All

Well Brian I tried the G52 code, there is a problem with cut view when its being cut, actual cut seems fine pre-view seems fine.

While cutting, cut view is way off.

As in my previous topic below, problems, Others have stated so also, seems to be in mach3.

Hear are some pictures and G-code below, maybe its my G-code.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, Enytned1

Hi, Mills

Is your Gcode numbered N5, N10, N15..................N5000, 1000 lines of code.

In your Post processor like LazyCam you can set the line, N- Numbers to increment to most any value by 1, 5, 10, to keep order and allow

you to add code in order, lots of systems ignore the N - numbers and run line to next line.

Hope this Helps, Chip

hI, Jerry

Swap your X & Z Step and Dir Pins around in Config, Ports & Pins, you may need to change your Steps Per in Motor Tuning if the ratios are different in X & Z.

Should do what you want, Just be careful, Dry-run it several times first.

Stay away from your limit switch's no homing.

Hope this helps, Chip

Hi, Enytned1

Do the rest of your config menu items work / open up, if so probably the only way to fix this is to reinstall Mach3.

If not, do you have a password assigned under Operator, Lock / Unlock.?

Had the same thing happen hear once, just no Motor Tuning.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, Franco

Click on Config (top left) select General Config..., Bottom right, UN-Check, Perisistent DRO's, then OK.

Close Mach3, then Restart Mach3, should show x0000, y0000 z0000, on start-up

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, Brian

Its more of a screen issue, Mach draws it fine just doesn't follow screen path, Doesn't Mach use the Screen.Data-File.

Shouldn't Mach follow Drawn Path.

Thanks, Chip
