mach3
« on: October 15, 2011, 02:34:36 PM »
OK so now i have run all the wizards on my mach3 and they all work but when i do a program in lazy cam and send it to mach3 i get the message ( Uknown word where unary operation could be Line 0 )
And i have no picture apear in the mach3 window.

Or is there a simpler way of loading g codes in to mach3 as i am new to this and having soooo much grief getting this to work any help would be so helpfull.

Many thanks
Pete :-\

What are you trying to do in LC?
Seems like it is not posting the code.
Post the dxf file that you are using for LC. Note that there is a manual for LC in Members Docs.

You program the code manualy or use software to create the code based on the machining you want to do. The program then creates the
gcode file. You then open the gcode file in Mach.

Cheers Ritch
All i am trying to do to start with is text writing in lazy cam but when i post the code to mack it keeps coming up with the error in the bottom left of the screen.
I will try to post the project to you and have a look in the forum manuals

Post the first 5 lines of your g-code.
