Lost code.
« on: April 04, 2012, 12:40:20 PM »
Hello everyone.
I am learning to use MeshCAM for generating G code. It seems very user friendly. I have question though. MeshCam shows the tool path before saving the G code file. On one part I'm working on the tool path shows just what I'm looking for. I save the file and then load it on Mach3. When it pulls up only part of it shows up on Mach3. That's really odd. I tried to save the G code as a few different file types that Mach3 also can pull up but every time the same thing results.

Does anyone have any idea what could cause this?

Thanks again.

Mach3 will cut off at 500 lines of gcode if it isn't licensed (i.e. trial version), or if it doesn't properly recognize your license.  How much of the gcode is showing?  If you're doing 3D with MeshCAM it won't be much at all if only 500 lines get through!  :)
