Thanks for the reply.

I will try what you have suggested and get back with the results.It really sounds like exactly what I am attempting.

Hopefully it will work!!

Best regards


Hi all!!
I am new here and to the Mach world and also CNC in general.

I found this place when I was looking for a solution to a little problem I have been having in regards to Mach3.
I have posted it and with any luck one of you guys can help me.
Its pretty noob problem but hey we all start out as noobs eh?

So hi!

Best regards

Hi there,
I have just joined and have also recently made my first steps into the world of CNC machining after purchasing a flatbed CNC milling machine with 600x400mm work area.
I have learned quite a bit already in regards to my actual machine settings. Limits, Homing, Setting the work and job areas. Motors all running correctly and cuts the right length.
I am, however, having a few teething problems with the Mach3 side of things and maybe someone here could help or point me in the right direction.

I primarily obtained the machine to etch PCBs and I have achieved this with some success...good clear tracks and nice clearances around pads etc.
I used the EagleCAD software to capture the schematics and produce the PCB art.
I then used a user made G code extension of Eagle to produce the G-Code. PCB2Gcode.
I have used a 0.2 mm V Bit to mill and like I mentioned this side of things has been so far, so good.
As I now have it running as I want, I would like to increase the production of PCB by milling multiples from the same board.
I have achieved this so far by manually lining up the next PCB after the previous one had finished.
I know this may be very apparent in the documentation of Mach3 and also a very Noob question.

How do I cut multiples of the same thing and allow the machine to run continuously?
Can I import G-code and place it where I need it? (this would solve everything I believe)
How do I place other PCBs into the work area?

Sorry if this is a long drawn out question but any help would be much appreciated.

Best regards
