material orientation on table
« on: June 19, 2012, 10:56:49 PM »
Hi
I'm new at this. Just got a g 6 table with a mach3 controller.
There's a dialog box for orienting the plate on the table.
I cannot remember the steps to get to it.
Can someone please help?
Thanks for your help

Hi Russ,
    By the way, my name is Joseph.
I was handed a G6 table with a mach3 controller,
with absolutely no instructions.
From day 1 the table has malfunctioned.
We have finally worked through all the mechanical problems with the table.
While waiting on line with Canada, I remember reading something about how to orient
a piece of material on the table without having it straight with the axis of
the table. I recall the basic instructions, 1) locate 1st corner 2) move to another corner and enter the coordinates in a pop-up box telling the machine this is now the other end of the plate.
 I know this is extremely vague and I have no background to draw from.
Pretend you're talking to an absolute idiot.
 Thank you for taking the time to at least read my post.
HELP IF YOU CAN!!!!  ???

Hi Joseph,
   Here is a cool little Wizard. Might be just what you need.
Unzip it to your Mach3/Addons folder, restart Mach and it should then be in the wizard list.

Welcome aboard,
Russ
