Just my intro post so I don't get rejected as a spambot

Didn't find any intro places on the board

Have just bought a little mini mill for engraving sign work and am trying to get write to work.

Hi John,

Welcome to the forum.
The usual place for intro's is here http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic,2475.0.html but who cares, it is just nice to have another member.

Are you still having problems with the Write Wizard or have you got it sorted now ?

This makes sense to me up to line 8
then the code is all zeros.
no quite sure why it is using i and j on a g1 but I guess they are offset codes so you can use them
in straight lines as well as curves.
I'm not really sure about the G90 where it is - I thought the absolute instruction would not work
with the I and J relative instructions.
will keep playing as I have time - still waiting on a couple of parts for my mill as it got
damaged in transit so haven't got it set up yet.

Will take this over to a more related topic if I keep having problems as it doesn't fit here

Hi John,

Sorry for not replying but I really have no idea what is going wrong. I have not seen this problem before, the write wizard always runs fine for me.

Sorry.  :'(
