Won't load G Code?
« on: April 12, 2009, 10:33:16 PM »
 ??? Mach 3 won't load the full G Code sample Cross.tap

Everything was fine I could load the full Cross.tap and then I started setting the homing, table size, etc.. and when I re-gen toolpath not all the G code loads up only a small part of it.

It wont load any G Code generated in V Carve for Mach2/3 Inches, I always get a circle starting at the 0 point.

I want to start cutting but I don't know the problem  :-\

Could it be the code is over 500 lines and you are using the Demo version? Have a look at the Help menu then About Mach3........ you will see if it says  or Demo.
 If thats not the problem please attach the xml for the profile you are using and I can have a look and see if I can find a problem.

Hood,

It's not a demo. I have attached the XML.

Seems to load fine here with your xml. What exactly do you see, can you take a screenshot and attach it. Couple of things  in your xml, you are on table view mode and also you had the jog control switched off. Both these have no effect on code loading though. You also have the axis step pins all set to pin 1 and you have the Dir pins set up for 10, 11 and 13, these are Inputs if you are using port 1. You dont have any port asigned for any of the Step or Dir pins.

Hood,

Thanks for helping me. I uninstalled Mach3 and deleted the registry entries and reinstalled now everything works fine.
