What does offline mean?
« on: March 27, 2009, 03:46:13 PM »
Sounds like a dumb question, I know. I ran through my program really smooth a few times, then hit the offline button and ran it again. The program is running but the the tool is doing nothing, and the toolpath display comes up now real nice. All I want to know is, will I be able to run Mach normally without being hooked up to the internet(offline). Because right now I have only played with Mach while being in a wi-fi zone. The shop where I plan to take the system I won't be hooked up to the internet. At least not in the near future.

online and offline is not related to your internet connection. it is a way to simulate your toolpath whitout actualy cutting any material, to make sure you don't break anything. you don't need internet to run mach3
