I am having problems as of late with the size of my work, for the last 2 months everything has been cutting really good now is cutting everything really small. i have been told it has something to do with G20, G21 g-code but have no idea how to fix the problem.

General Mach Discussion / mach 3 not working?

hello all, I have had my machine (3040t) for about 2 months, and now when i load a file into Mach 3 in the display window you dont see the pic that is going to be made. instead you see a very small version in the box, and when the program starts is only moves the machine about an 1/8 of an inch.

this may seem very vague, and im sorry for that.. still learning


FAQs / tool path problems?

  ??? hello all,

I just got a Chinese 3040 engraver/mill. I hook everything up, installed reg.copy of Mach 3 and imputed my g-code. however once I started running the program it would air trace the picture, and cut when it was moving to the next cut location, then rise out of the stock and start air tracing again. Im at a loss with this. If anyone can point me in the right direction great

Thanks for your time,


 :)Hello all, :)

my name is Eric and Im from Washington St. I just got into the CNC world, as my wife got my a 3040t engraver/miller. Im as green as they come to all this so you might see me here alot :)
