General Mach Discussion / Optimizing the code.
« on: January 06, 2010, 11:02:28 AM »
Is there a way to optimize the G code?  I have pockets Begin cut and it seems that I make one cut in this area move to another make one cut and so on gradually making the round to get back to the first area to make the second cut.  You would think that once in an area you would cut all you can prior to moving out to another.  That would save a lot of Z up and down and moving time.  I know this is not a function of Mach3 it only does what the code tell is to do.  One of the files I am using is made in Vcarve Pro and it seems the code makes the Machine Work overtime to get the job done.  There must be some way to optimize the code I just do not know what that way is.

Sorry, just checked and I am running Version R3.042.032 I think I may have been confused with mach2 anyway this is the version giving me the dots.  Both copies the release prior to this one and this one both do the same.

I am usually running between 50 and 100......... never higher than 100 and for a clean cut usually 50.  I have never seen a green line only the dots.  I have the latest version of Mach3 the one just released  I think 2.64 or so.

thank you for the rresponse, I was hoping for better but understand.  I do have some long lines but they too show dots not a solid line.  You can sort of see where the tool had been but it's difficult.  I guess nothing that can't be dealt with.
