What did I do wrong
« on: March 07, 2010, 07:57:42 PM »
I'm making  some PCBs on my machine, I made a few yesterday and I want to use the whole PCB. However Mach3 on the PC controlling the router is not reading the file correctly and I do not know why?
I have Mach3 installed on my main PC to test the gcode and the same file looks good.
Here is what it is supposed to look like. The blue lines are supposed to be squares.


Here is what the PC controlling the mill is producing.

Can you attach the xml for both machines and also the code. You will need to rename both xmls to attach them to the forum, if you rename them PC.xml and Machine.xml that should be fine

hmmmm that is strange. I will try a reload of Mach3 but I just ran almost the same gcode a day before. I just moved the group over an inch?

I figured it out. It is the program pcb-gcode that is causing the problem. Sorry for the trouble.
