OK I will ask the obvious, You said that the mache has 1 axis "X" AND that the Cam puts out multi levels of code as Y,U,V.

Is the machine in it's original configuration with only 1 axis?

It does not make sense for the CAM to output YUV if the machine only has X??????

What do the YUV commands do on the machine?

The machine is a beam saw. Sheet goods are clamped and moved along the table, and stopped for the saw to make cuts. The X axis is probably the sheet movement. The saw carriage should not be any axis.

My guess is that the code outputs other axis for crosscuts. On a typical beam saw, the saw first rips the sheet into multiple strips, Then, each strip is placed back into the saw to make the crosscuts. So, both X and Y cuts on the material are done with one axis on the machine.

The biggest hurdles here is trying to make Mach3 do what it's not designed to do.

A better option imo is to modify the software output to something that works with Mach3, rather than trying to modify Mach3 to work with other software.

Not sure what an optimizer is in this context but wouldn't it be better to configure your optimizer for your machine? Seems a bit AB to me  :)

Cheers

The other option is to open the g-code as a text document and use the edit - replace utility and replace the Y, U , and V
with a X

Hi!

KTM
I do not see where you are only the cut

Attach a G-Code file that you use on the machine and I will show you how to edit it.
