Send me your Gcode for that to see if i can get the same result. I know yours works so maybe it can solve my problem, Have you tried mine?

Post the gcode that you are wanting to wrap and I will take a look.

OK I had a look at your code.  I can see nothing wrong with it.

However you chose the worst letter to use as a test.  Capital M looks the same backwards.  Even upside down it looks like a W.

Try doing something more meaningful than the letter M.  Like the word "Text" for example.  :)

Thats correct what you say about the M but my point is that the curve is clearly showing to curve along the length of the letter not accross it

That just means that you did not arrange it correctly when producing the original code in your CAM program.

I have used the cam as it should be reason i know this is if i show a displayed cut using XYZ then it displayes correct It is only when it is wrapped this occurs.
My thoughts is that there is something not set correct in Mach3 but i dont have a clue what it is.
Unless what you mean by "arrange" is something i am picking up wrongly.

Here are two attachments showing the same word, the word is showing along the length as left to right same as would do in an XYZ cut
but you can see it is still curving the wrong way so why is this where is the mistake in the setup and if you say it is the setup in CAM and you can get it curving the correct way then it must be in Mach the problem lies but i just dont know where?

Jim, please send me the file that is corrupt. I will examine it and see if I can figure out what is wrong. Please send it to my email (rgoldner AT iname DOTcom)  rather than the group.
