wizards and gcode
« on: April 27, 2010, 02:24:31 AM »
Gooday from sydney.
Have just installed mach 3 and written my first text to prove xyand z allwork.
It all worked fine.
Today my write files have acquired a series of tool path concentric circles.
These are strange and annoying.  Where did they come from, and how can i make them go away.
I wrote a new text wizard file and it also developed the circle virus.  Any Ideas.

Secondly I seem to have lost the grid of holes wizard.

It downloaded with mach3 late last year, and I cant find it on later downloads. Anyone know where it is?
Can I download it and other wizards?

Thanks Peter.

Sounds like you need to change the IJ mode, you will find it on the General Config page, either that or you can do it via code or MDI, G90.1 is Absolute IJK mode and G91.1 is Incrementall mode.

The wizard you are looking for is rectangular bolt pattern and should be there. There is a button in that wizard to turn grid on and off.

"Sounds like you need to change the IJ mode"

Always creates a distinctive look, doesn't it?  Like an old bubble chamber track of nuclear particles.
