Anyone out there using Microcarve?
I know that it is a lazy way to generate G Code but it seems to do the trick with the exception that when I load it onto my system using Mach3, the size is way too small.
I am new to the CNC routing game as it is a new hobby.
I am also looking for G Code that will allow me to produce Old English lettering.

Thanks for the support

Are you possibly generating g code in mm when you want it to be inches or maybe exporting g code for inces but are set up to run mm?  If you command a move of 1 from MDI, does it move 1mm or 1 inch?

Try adding a G20 as the first line of code then change it to a G21 and see the difference.

;D If you could see the things I have in my head, you would be laughing too. ;D
