Pocket & Offsetting in LCam Pro or CAD/CAM programs.

Hi, Larry

What Stepper/driver board are you using, Try the Sherline 1/2 step mode, Your board may need more time to see Mach's Pulses.

Try that first, Thar's a doc to optimize Windows if needed. http://www.machsupport.com/downloads/XP_Optimization.txt

Hi, John

Use the REPLY button and attach your DXF, Have you looked at it in any other cad software and saved another dxf .

DXF files from cad to cad are very different, Do you have an option to save it in Autocad 12 format.

Thanks, Chip
