When I click on the download tab on the web page, nothing happens.
What should I do ?
Is this a server issue ?

It's downloading fine here.  You must have some restricitons on your PC that will not let you download.

Bit of an educational project here with more details in this thread http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic,24021.0.html

The material I used was 1.5mm thick polycarbonate. I have kept the feed-rate low but you may want to increase this using the FRO slider. The overall size can be scaled, if you wish, by using the X & Y axis scale DRO’s.
This tool-path has been created for use with a 2mm diameter end-mill with the X and Y zero (datum point) centre of the stock and Z zero with the tool touching the stock surface.

Thank you for the demos , I have had my cnc for a week and have been trying to get my head around G code so I can see if it works.
Regards.

Hi Guys,

Over the last weekend, I have added a few more Gcode files to the .zip folder in post #1 of this thread and I will add more Gcode files as they become available.

I have never had any problems running Imperial Unit Gcode programs on my Metric machines and I assume the same applies in reverse, provided the Gcode contains a G20 or G21 ( as appropriate). However, Graham Waterworth has written an excellent and very useful little program that can be used to scale / convert Gcode from Imperial to Metric or Metric to Imperial. This thread refers; http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic,2893.0.html

It is usual to have the Gcode origin (X0, Y0) at the bottom left hand corner of the workpiece but for different reasons we may each prefer to have our Gcode origin in a different location. There is an excellent FREE software program available from Scorch Works which will re-calculate Gcode to move the origin to one of many different locations. This software can also be used as a backplotter converting Gcode to a .dxf and also a number of other functions are available. It can be downloaded from here; http://www.scorchworks.com/Gcoderipper/gcoderipper.html

This outline engraving of a young colt was downloaded as a FREE silhouette from http://vectorink.com/ and the Gcode created with Vectric Aspire. The Gcode file has now been added to the .zip folder.
