Toolpath displayed is not what I have programmed
« on: July 01, 2010, 05:07:16 PM »
Hi There, I have a strange thing happening with my mach3 attached to my cnc machine.

All I want to do is mill out six holes in a line fairly easy, but whne I generate my gcode with CAMBAM and load it in to my machine its wrong see toolpathwrong.jpg wheat I should get is toolpathcorrect.jpg, attached is also the file. I have tried diferent version and nothing changes the correct image is from an0ther machine I use to generate the code, any ideas.

PS If I say cycle start, whatever he toolpath is displayed is what is cut. It seems I think it is the CAMBAM files if I load in other files they are fine. but the same files are correct in my generating machine.

Any ideas???
