Missing some features: File>Import & Multipass tool group
« on: July 16, 2009, 11:14:07 AM »
Hello Mach3 Users:

I've been working my way through the Mach3 Software a step at a time. Several of the features discussed in the documentation are missing from my Mach3Mill lock down version 3.042.020. I have copied the license key file to the Mach3 folder to unlock the full program.

The first "feature" that appears to be missing is from the menu options. I click on "File" and have no option listed for importing DXF, JPEG, HPGL, or anything else. The only File menu options showing are "Load G-Code", "LazyCam...", "Entib", "Close File(s)" and "Exit".

Also missing from the screen is the window for the Automatic Z control family or the "MultiPass" options box on the "Run Program" window.

If anyone has any insight how I might access these "features" I sure would appreciate it!

Thanks,

Don

The old importers have been replaced by LazyCAM.

Is there an updated PDF that accurately describes the Mach3 software & functions and features of LazyCam Pro?

I don't think so, but there are some lazyCAM tutorial videos. http://www.machsupport.com/videos/

I think the multipass wizard took over from that.

Not entirely. But this should give you an idea of what you can do. If i get some time tomorrow i will add
dilling holes, contouring and few other things, but, in the mean time this LazyCam Manual  may just strike your fancy.
It's not no work of art,   ;)  ( no pun intended ART  ;D ) but rough and dirty, for now.
