Engraving... Again
« on: October 05, 2012, 03:54:00 PM »
I'm a fairly complete noob with Mach 3 & Lazy Cam but, I have a CNC laser engraver with software that allows me to import .jpg images, lets me size them, and turns them into code. All I have to do is establish where zero is for that particular application and hit "start".

Now however, I need to engrave in aluminum and have turned to Mach 3 with Lazy Cam on a small 4 axis machine and I am lost... Why can't I have it NOW!?!?! ;D I just want to find a WYSIWYG software That will work like my laser software, or figure out a workaround in M3/LC. I have a logo, and text in a specific font.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

No need to  double post as someone will address your original post.
We may  be somewhat slow in responding but we are not very accurate ............ ;D  :D

Thanks Rich,

     The other post sent up a warning that it had been inactive for a long time and that, perhaps, I should start a new topic. So, I have both now.

     To answer your other reply, yes, I bought a licensed copy, but I have only begun to study with it - unfortunately, what I need the machine to do is only a small part of my business so, while I'm running around putting out fires, it has been difficult to immerse myself in learning all of this.

     Thanks.
