Hi Guys,
Looks like a lot of talent on this forum. I'm hoping to absorb some of it.
The company I work for, just purchased a router from Ind. CNC.  I'm new to the Mach software.  Keith has been very helpful with the setup phase.  I am just now starting to tweak the g code for the new machine.
My background has been mostly in the petrochemical industry, 21 years in Instrumentation/Controls.  Now doing maintenance at a steel door manufacturing company.
Looking forward to learn from you guys!

Hello,
My name is Tim. As you can see by my screen name I know virtually nothing about G code, mach3, or CNC. I have been a conventional machinist for close to 30 years, I try to do a bit of everything for the sake of learning, but I've always been a bit too scared of CNC. I still used a drafting machine until 2000
I'm about to put on big boy pants and try something CNC. I want to build a fairly simple machine in the sense that it will perform very basic moves. In short, I will load a open face mold in a fixture near front center of the table (for now the mold will be filled by hand) I would like to start the program, the carriage would move z,x then y would drop down z,x screed the top of the mold, and return home. I'll bet you are saying that's beyond simple, that's OK I deserve it for hiding under a rock. I know nothing about G code or mach3, but my gut told me there must be something in the program that allows me to move the x,y,z by eye or a numerical estimation that would possibly generate the code? a manual data input? is that a real thing? if it is, I will get mach3 and start the learning process.
Eventually the machine will have 5 axis, a stepper driven depositor to fill the mold as well as another axis to rotate the screed or the mold so it can wipe from multiple directions.
Am I on the right path?
Thanks for your time
Tim

Hi Catone,

Welcome.

I think it would be beneficial if you spent a bit of time reading the Mach3 manual and watching the tutorial videos. They answer the questions you raised and of course, a lot more. http://www.machsupport.com/help-learning/

Don't expect to take it in all at once, it takes a while.  ;)

Tweakie.
KEEP SAFE !

 :) Hello, My name is Stuart and trying to get started in CNC.  Bought a SXCNC 6040 (China??) setup and missing manual(s) for setting up the pin setting on the serial cable and MACH3.  ??? Does anyone have a SXCNC Manual?  Is there one?  Can I get one?  Does anyone know or can make a suggestion for these settings?  Please help.  ;D THANKS for considering. --S
