Repeat program and step down question
« on: August 22, 2010, 04:37:09 PM »
Hello, I am using 2Linc's engraving software to generate Gcode for engraving text. It appears to be standard Gcode that I can import directly into Mach3 as an nc file. It works well.  How do I repeat the program and step down .001 on the Z axis per program repeat? Thanks, Mike

Try using the multipass wizard to create multiple passes.

Is that one of the  Mach wizards? I'm away from the machine and program right now.
