Moving work within table display
« on: May 15, 2009, 12:48:13 AM »
         Guys,
             I'm able to move a piece of work closer to the X=0, Y=0 point, but the red traces that originated at the XY point are now redirected off the table display, and then back to the work piece. Is there a way to change this, and have the traces originate at the Xy point directly to the work piece? I hope you can understand what I'm trying to accomplish.

Hi Marv,
  I'll try.
If X0 and Y0 in your program are on your part, not off in the distance, jog x and y to the 0,0,point, Zero the X and Y DRO's, then regen the display.
See what you get then.
Not sure what you mean,

I seems your ORIGIN of the drawing for your part is away from the part itself.
Post your code file if you wish.

        RC,
          Here's the G-code file. Thanks for the help.

Looks like your part 0,0 is not on the part but is at the tool change position.
Try jogging to the first hole, enter 10.182 in the X dro... and 3.613 in the Y dro.
I think 0,0 is normally on a feature of the part.

       I solved a great deal of the problem by going back into my AutoCad drawing, and relocating the drawing to the hypothetical X-Y Zero point of the screen, and exporting that relocated drawing to a new DXF file. When I opened the DXF file in D2nc, and posted it to G-code, it appeared far closer to the X-Y Zero in Mach3. Thanks for listening to a somewhat confused Mach3 user.

No prob Marv,
 Happy I could help.  :)
I'm relatively new at this and struggling through it as well.
