Tool compensation in copycat
« on: October 21, 2009, 12:45:28 PM »
Can anyone please help me figure how to set the tool compensation in copycat? I went thru the manual, but it doesn't seem to address this.

Thanks,

Keith

Correct, as it's not even mentioned  in the manual. CopyCat only gives you a Gcode based on using the video camera crosshairs. I guess you could set the tool size, and use the circle to  trace around the object thus providing an offset with a somewhat known offset from  the crosshairs. But then again you could also use the scaling feature in MACH when running the program. You can also edit the program manualy. There is nothing automaticaly done
for compensation that i am aware of.
