General Mach Discussion / Mach 3 or Mach ?
« on: November 01, 2015, 12:30:29 PM »
I am brand new to Cnc only started using my Cnc in September so am very green and very new.

My questions is would it make any sense upgrading to Mach 4 before i get used to Mach 3 ?
Would it be easier for me to learn Mach 4 from the start and is it any easier to use than Mach 3 ?

I paid for and got 3 hours training with my new cnc but to be honest he succeeded in making me quite
Nervous about using or touching any but the basic essential settings in Mach3.
I am learning my Vectric software by having plenty of practice and i am Quite pleased by how well i am
Learning the software, but as i said above i am pretty scared to explore or make any adjustments in Mach 3.
Any advice would be appreciated .
Thank you in advance

Hi Gary,

Welcome to the forum.

The answer to your question is yes and hopefully you will quickly get an explanation (in the other thread) of how to do it by people who are better at explaining things than I.


Thank you Tweakie much appreciated

Thank you bfgstew and thank you bluepinnacle for your advice now i know thats it would be a risky and unpracticle think to do i will definately avoid that scenrio alltogether and if i do have toolpaths to cut which are many hours long i will work it so that i start the cutting first thing on a morning ... Much appreciated ....

Im Gary from the Uk i have just had to retire on ill from the Fire Service after 23 years. I decided to buy a Cnc With Aspire and Mach 3 to give me something to do in my workshop. For as long as i can remember Ive enjoyed making things from tables to table lamps,
the Cnc idea seemed an ideal hobby as i wouldnt need to do much heavy lifting ect and as im quite confident using a Pc it seemed the ideal choice.
I only started using my Cnc this september so i am very very green but have to admit i am quite impressed with what i have made so far.
I do like the idea of making Firefighter related items like plaques, clocks ect.
I posted my first question on the forum just a few hours ago and hopefully i will get a few replies.

Thanks for now and i hope to discuss and learn about Cnc from this forum in the future.

I am Gary from the Uk i was a Firefighter but i have just been forced to retire after 23 years due to ill health.
I am brand new to Cnc but love it so far.
Please forgive me if my question is very basic but up to now i am still pretty unconfident in using more settings in Mach 3 than i need to.

My question is in When using mach 3 is there a way that i can pause my job during the cutting process shut down Mach 3 and my pc restart the following day and carry on my cnc cutting from the point i stopped it ?

For expample if i was going to cut a job that takes many hours to finish i may need to do this.
Thank you in advance and please forgive me if i have posted in the wrong section ect as i have only just registered with this forum.
