Hi, Carl

If your losing steps, Try reducing your Acceleration and Velocity settings some.

Tell us a little more about your Machine, Steppers, Controller type, Computer speed ....

If your Step, Dir "Pulses" are set to 0, Set them to 5 also.

More info Needed, Chip

Hi, Pat

If there servos, It most likely you need to reverse the A B pins on your encoder inputs or reverse the servo  motor polarity.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Jon

It's the DXF exporter in Corel, In most cad programs you can select the "line segment length" for cir's, arc's or just export cir's, arc's in the DXF, I Think!.

I haven't used Corel maybe Corel has this option, In the Link I posted, It was suggested to import your dxf in a differant Cad and re-export it's dxf.

Better answers should follow, I hope.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Scott

Thanks for the code, Its just what I needed, A little structure to support my weak VB skills.

I'll let you now how it works out for me.

Your Help goes a long Way for All.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Iqchallengedd

Things can get out of Whack with Mach3's driver sometimes, Probably best to remove it and reinstall at this point.

Open Device Manager, Rt click on Mach3 Driver, Select "Uninstall" Mach3 Driver, Yes.

Return to Mach3 Folder, C:\Mach3 and "Run" the "Driver Test", It will return with the "Driver Installed",  Reboot/Re-start Computer Required.

Restart and run Mach3, From time to time this has been the only solution for Me.

You now after Using, Your Fore-Head to Drive 16 Penny Nail's in the Wall a few times.

Hope this Helps, Chip
