General Mach Discussion / Frustrated with code
« on: February 03, 2007, 11:30:53 PM »
I have mach 3 set up in inch mode, if I import a supplied g code such as "roadrunner", I have no problem running it. If I draw something on Vector or any other cad, export it as dxf to lazy cam, clean it up etc. and click for g code, it writes the code in metric, I have poured over the program for hours and cannot seem to find what I am doing wrong. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks
Terry

Hi Chip, I went to settings page, changed the settings from inch to MM and back to inch, on the top line of the run and mdi screen there is a G20, I also entered a G20 in the G code with the code editor, but the code still shows up in metric. If I use one of the g codes supplied with the program such as the road runner, no problem, it is in inches. Go figure.

Hi Chip, I tried your suggestions, no luck, there is no G20 or G21 in the code, I tried adding G20 near start of code, no effect, I cannot find anywhere in the codeshark program to set units, maybe I can get hold of someone from the codeshark program.
Thanks

LazyCam (Beta) / inch-metric
« on: February 02, 2007, 08:05:08 PM »
I am playing with the free version of codeshark, when I draw something, save as dxf and open in lazycam, clean it up and hit g code, when I open the g code in Mach 3, it comes up in metric, I have the Mach 3 set up for inch, is there somewhere I can get the code to show up in inches?
Thanks

« on: February 01, 2007, 05:34:53 PM »
When in lazycam, if I click on the tool start position on the screen, I immediately get the illegal action and must shut down message from microsoft. Am I doing something wrong or is it a glitch.

HI, I have the mach 3 program running on my router, I would like to do some engraving, I am able to open the font wizard and enter the words, I am a little confused with the settings and how do you get the text into mach 3 to execute?
Thanks

Brett, I just sat and watched the videos on lazy cam, I guess I just have not explored all that mach is offering, it turned the lite on a lot of questions I had. Thanks again.

Thanks Brett, I confess I don't know much about this area, but I will dive into lazy cam.

General Mach Discussion / So now what????
« on: January 01, 2007, 04:37:53 PM »
I finally have my desktop up and running, I have cut roadrunners into every available piece of wood I could find, I find it hard to believe everyone is going out and spending 6 or 7 hundred dollars and up for cadcam programs, I have spent countless hours surfing the sites and now am completely confused. Help.
