G-Code Cut or Missing When opening in Mach3
« on: February 05, 2012, 08:09:43 PM »
Hey all, so i tried to do my 1st 3D cut.... well it didn't work to well what i found out that when I loaded G-code generated from MeshCam, Mach3 only took some few lines of the code and ignored rest of the file... How acn this be fixed?

Attached what i got: 1st i loaded full file with rough and fine finishj but only gut what you see on top: section of rough finish which is not even close to sphere shaped taht i was cutting. Then i loaded lust fine finish and got only that deep hole that supposed to be full sphere.

So the question is: how can i fix that? TNX!

Sounds like you have an unlicensed copy of Mach3, which only allows 500 lines of code.

Your name should be displayed in the title bar, if it's a recent version of Mach3.

i did hoeever install the update, the machine came with older version of Mac3 like few digits older so i installed new one over it. Could it be a problem? Can I reset license some how or diagnose the problem?

The code looks OK here, it loads and runs fine.

If you bought a used machine, Mach3 licenses are not transferable. If you bought a new machine which came with a license, it should come from Artsoft, so it contains your name.
