Eagle & pcb-gcode help
« on: November 12, 2011, 06:54:17 AM »
Hello !
I have tried Eagle & pcb-gcode following example at

I have generated the G-code and have a look to the result given by pcb-gcode and i can see problems with the toolpath generation:
there are some shortcuts !!
You can have a look to the joined files: i put a screen copy of the settings in pcg-gcode (it runs under eagle) and the result.
If somebody have some hints, they are welcomed !

Looks like you have lots of errors on that PCB.
Mach cannot help resolve those issues, the GCode needs to be right before Mach becomes involved.
The only thing I can suggest is that you practice using Eagle and PCB-GCode a bit more or perhaps ask some questions at the Eagle forum http://www.cadsoftusa.com/forums/guidelines/?language=en

Not much help really, sorry.

Its also quite possible that the gap is too small for the cutter that you specified. ie, the gaps 1mm and the cutter is 1.5mm.
