Hi, Art

You should be able to find it at C:\Mach3\Gcode, If you have Std. Install of LazyCam.

If you have Mach3 running, It should auto load it for you.

Hi, this is my first time posting on this forum and I am a cnc newb. Im trying to engrave some text using rhino cad to produce the text, lazycam to produce the g code and mach 3 as the controller. My problem is when I convert the dxf to g code and send it to mach most of the letters are missing or I will get one word out of three. Ive checked that the units are the same in all programs please help!!
