Hi, BobsShop

Your second Question , It's there look at the bottom of Layer/Object Properties, move that window up or scroll down to Tool Number,

Click on it, set it, don't forget to hit the Enter Key.

Don't forget to check each layer at top and re verify the tool number for each layer before Post.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, Jlautomatio & Brian

If Mach3 & LC reside in other than Mach3 folder, like Mach3R2.0.010.

The Gcode post's to Mach3R2.0.010\ gcodetest55Dotpolyline.tap, rather than Mach3R2.0.010\gcode\test55Dotpolyline.tap.

Need's a back-slash gcode " \" test55Dotpolyline.tap is missing.

Thank's Chip

Hi, Spence

It just doesn't get any better than that, HU ! !.

Thank's Chip

Hi, Spence

If your still not able to Reset machine and you have it wired up try changing the state, Active Low to opposite of what it,s set now.

Conf.-Port Pins Input's, scroll down to E-Stop, if that doesn't work set it to Emulated, then you can Reset, though your weired E-Stop won't work. Be Carefull now only Screen Reset , Stop will stop moves.

As far as your Limit's and Home switche's

In actuality you can use three switche's to control Home and Limit's with one Pin on your Par. port, if the Switche's are stationary to the axis that's moving with a tab that trigger's them at each end of travel.

If your using Two limit switche's at opposite end's of each axis and the home Switch's are located with one limit ( same Position ), you can use that limit switch for your Home switch also, Still just One Pin used.

If your using Normanly closed switche's they need to be wired in series, N - Open SW parallel

You can Emulate limit/home Switch's also, (some ver. of Mach you need to set the port to 0).

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, Faby

This happen's if you move the view around to much, I don't really now exactilly why, seem's like more than a 90 deg. rotation will do it.

Find a view you like, Reset Mach, a Regen tool path if needed.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, jporter

LazyCam is undergoing a re-make, there are some issue's with offset's, Probally better to make a offset layer in your cad to account's for your tool offset's for now, I think.

Are you checking the G41, G42's post options, you need to use Lead-In's ON for them to work/post.

The G41, G42 are Backward's in the Post's for me anyway, view to cut, cut to view, you'll see what I mean.

Hope this Helps, Chip
