help. config problem??
« on: May 06, 2013, 12:42:48 PM »
I have a system using mach 3 and for some unkrown reason it crashed the other day. defore this it was working perfectly. after that I had to reconfigure everything. now when i try to engrave text i get a serries of circles in the middle of the program. I use bobcad v.25 and until this crash all was well. when i run a simulation in bobcad all is well.it goes to hell in a handbasket in mach.any ideas on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated.-Andy

Sounds like it could be 'crop circles' - In Config / General Config set the IJ Mode to the opposite of its current setting and see if that corrects the problem.

Best to have the G91.1 or G90.1 in the first line of your code, that way it will always be correct no matter what is in general config.
