General Mach Discussion / Re: Velocity in Gcode G0

Click the G-Codes button on the main screen then click G0 for a fairly detailed description of it's function and use,

xp should work

Granted, yes, it will, provided you have the correct driver for your hardware.
Was a driver for XP written for your hardware?

You don't need debugging software, you need a compatible driver, use the OS and driver you had working previously,

Some CAD software supports import and vectorising of images, I use BobCAD/Cam V25 with Bob Art to create very accurate profile paths quite quickly from photographs,

He was online when I replied and obviously went elsewhere when a sensible reply was forthcoming, perhaps he's looking at the Linux forum?

The expeience of so many others differs from yours that one must suspect something wrong with your setup.
1. Works fine here
2. Dunno, I don't do that as I've found that my machine does exactly as in my CAD/CAM's simulation so I know moves will be correct.
3. Learn how to configure & use the Linux based CNC software, can't help there as Mach3 works perfectly for me.

Are you running an evaluation or licensed product downloaded from the official site?
If you are then there's something at your end that's different than mine as it works and runs fine here ;-)
Best Regards,

General Mach Discussion / Re: pocketing and profiling

Internal or external profiling to exact size for a given material and cutter will need at least one test cut to check how it comes out on your machine whatever your software is, but if something else gives you a menu you prefer that does the one thing you want to do that makes sense too.
Presumably you've learned all about the use of the Profiling feature in BCC ?

I'm self taught too, it took me about 12 months of my spare time to get up to speed from a base of no CAD/CAM experience at all.
BobCAD V25 is really capable and with all the free video tutorials on Al DePaolo's After Dark channel on YouTube and the community support on CNC Zone there's not really an excuse other than "I can't be bothered"
You should really take the time to talk to the guys on CNC Zone - I help there when I can - as what you're wanting to do is well within the scope of V25 if you can be bothered to ask,

If you have BobCAD V25 with either of the last two builds it's really solid and capable with very few bugs, none that affect 2D, 2.5D, V-Carve, 3D with 3 & 4 axes, boy was I lucky ;-)
V28 might be very good if they fix a few annoying bugs and don't introduce any significant new ones,

Have you also posted this on the CNC Zone BobCAD forum?
There are some very helpful guys over there,
