Need a little help
« on: April 10, 2011, 01:05:30 PM »
Just started using LazyCam and have a question.

I import a wmf file, set the size, input my tool information. set the Z axis, optimize the image, and send to Gcode.
The image turns out just fine and Mach3 does a good job of cutting the piece with one exception.  When ever there is a move to a new starting location the code looks like this:

N35 G1  X1.4378  Y2.3400  Z-0.0250  F6.00

This causes the X Y Z all to move at the same time.

How do I get it to post the code like this with Z moving first and then X Y?

N34 Z-0.0250 F6
N35 G1  X1.4378  Y2.3400
 
I am sure it is something I am doing wrong or have set wrong in LazyCam.
Any help please.
Ray

Im not to familiar with lazycam but you could look for a save z option in the settings, or, try using the safe z setting in mach.

Sorry it took so long to get back to you.

I attached both the lcam and the tap files.
