Configuration change problem
« on: March 30, 2011, 03:33:57 PM »
I used multipass and nesting wizards couple weeks ago with great success.

This week I tried them again with another part and the results are baffling to me.  Rather than following the geometry for each pass, it makes several irrelevant (to me) lines.  I thought it was in the part CAD, so I made up just a simple rectangle with fillets at the coners and it does the same thing.  Without multipass it is fine.

I figured that I must have changed the configuration file to cause this.  So, I reinstalled Mach3 with no better affect.

If someone could take a look, I would appreciate it.

With the nesting wizard, the repeated parts are offset in X and Z, even though X is zero in the screen.  I'm not sure what the X offset value comes from, since it isn't the same as Y that I entered.  I'm hoping what is wrong for multipass is same for nesting.

Can you attach the original file before you ran the wizard.

Hood,

Justplate.txt is the original and justplatemp.tap is after multipass.

Sorry will have to come back to this if no one else has answered. I am crap at code anyway but brains working even less than normal because its late here ;D
Think it could have something to do with the G53 or possibly the tool height offset but I never use the wizard so not sure what to expect.

You have a line that has G01Z0.5 F10. if you change that to G01Z-0.5 F10. see if it now does what you expect when you run it throuh the multipass wizard.
