File loaded from Cut3D, now what?
« on: April 03, 2012, 05:33:20 PM »
Ok, I am a newbie. Not really sure what I am doing. I bought a cnc wood router with cut3D and Mach3 loaded on it. I have the file from cut3D loaded and am now stumped on how to proceed with zeroing and such. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Are there tutorials showing these things that I can watch to avoid bugging you for things that I could/should have seen? I might not have found the right ones but I have not seen what I am stumped on.

Thanks

Tony

Hi Tony,

The initial problem is not to get swamped in information but this is a good place to obtain the basics (and more) http://cnccookbook.com/CCCNCGCodeCourse.htm

Hope this helps.

Thanks. Swamped is a understatement. I knew cnc equipment could help me but after 3 months and still not being able to get started, I hired a guy to to do the cut3D part. Now trying to figure Mach3 out is very frustrating as I feel so close but......

I will be checking out the info you sent.

Thanks again

Tony
