General Mach Discussion / Re: DRO # for Steps Per Inch/mm

Hi, Carl

Do the other menus open up under "Config" pull-down list ? (Could have a password set under Operator if none of them will open).

If it won't open the "motor tuning" window only in Mach3, (I've had this happen several times in the past) You'll need to reinstall Mach3.

Make a copy of your Mach3Mill.xml or what ever it's named (profile you load/run with Mach).

It's located in C:\Mach3 folder (standard install for Mach).

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, Clive

LazyCam is for converting 2d dxf into 2.5d g-code format not true 3d, Pocketing, Offsetting, Hole drilling and such, It's Lazy.

Mach3 will load 3d G-code generated by a cad-cam package with the proper post, Have you checked if theres a post for Mach3.

It uses allot of Funic/standard/common type g-code.

Hears a BobCad posted G-code 3d item.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Jd1uth

Try this Xml file, Put it in C:\Mach3 folder, Run Mach3 .exe and select it from the Session Profile window.

It is setup as the "Mr. Wincklers page:", If your control is the same, It will probably need some adjustment.

May at least get you started again.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, Sid

Tried it on 2 computers, One of them didn't have a problem, The other, Feed-hold wouldn't work but stop would.

Theres a gremlin in there somewhere I'd say.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Tyler

Post your dxf file, You probably need to reset the layer Cut values again.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Jeffmorris

The short answer is Yes, Make a copy of it and use the copy.

If your machine has E-Stop, limit switches, Spindle speed feed-back... "Input" , You'll need to turn them off.

Special Macros if your using any, Need to be copied as well.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, Mike

You need a LC lic. for Offsetting, Pocketing and Turn Features, Don't remember any other limitations.
