Hi, Mike

LC is still under development and needing further work for sure, Mach3 has side-tracked work on it allot.

Saving your work in, File, "Save  LCam project as" should save your settings for that file.

In your C:\Mach3 folder you'll will find a Sub-Dir called "LCamSamples", It has what your looking for on Post's.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, Sid

If you create your 2 Part's G-code's in INC mode, It will display the way you want.

As stated before the offset's G52, G92 and G55 - G59's ...., Don't display correct, But cut fine.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Sid

It dose the same thing with G52, G92, Offset's. with M98/M99 subroutines.

I think if you write your G-code "parts" in G91 moves you may be able to work around it.

Brian has it on a list for display screen issues.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Sid

( Second cut referenced to G56.  Toolpath displays OK, cut is exactly where it should be (starting @ Y5) However, the cutting path shows it is cutting in the area of the first (G55) offset.  It's weird.  Is this Operator error?  Am I missing some setting/checkbox somewhere?    Or maybe a bug? )

It's a Mach3 View Screen Issue, Been there a long time.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Bill

Dose this error show up on your screen view.

If it doesn't, Try reducing your Velocity and Acceleration some in Config, Motor Tuning for a test.

Ran your Bad G-code several times with no error hear, G00 Diagonal moves/accelerates to your max "Velocity" setting.

May be a little to steep accl. and fast vel.

Let us Now, Chip

Hi, Tbyrd

Look at your BobCad G-code, It probably put you in Incremental Distance Mode G91, You need to type G90 in the MDI line or put G90 in the top of your home G-code to put you back in Absolute Distance Mode, I think that's what's going on.

In the top of all your G-code you'll want to setup or cancel previous G-codes and develop a habit/standard "Preamble" G-code to start-up your code with.

Review some of these, G90 abs G20 in mode G17 xy plane and G91 inc G21 mm mode for a start.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, Tbyrd

I have BobCad-Cam V22 but no BobArt hear, Have you been able to Post any G-code with the std.Cad ?.

Under "Help About" what build are you using ?, New Build "946" is out v22.42.007_Update at.  http://www.bobcad.net/updates/

Do you have Mach3MillPst loaded and tried right click-ed on BobArt Tools in Menu ?.

I've PM-ed my phone #, Give me a call or PM your Phone # and I'll call if your in the US.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, John

Micro Steps are Step's and must be included in your Step's Per Unit in "Motor Tuning" calculations.

200 st. stepper X 10 micro st. = 2000 step's per turn.

Thanks, Chip
