Hello
My name is Jim and I live in Ohio and I have build a CNC machine and have it running.  I purchased the Mach3 and Lazy Cam program and I am now trying to load something into my machine and I can't seem to be able to load a DXF file from Lazy Cam. 
I could use some detailed instructions.

Hello Jim and welcome to the forum.
Look through the various topic boards and post you questions in the most appropriate ones.
You might post your particular DXF file and your question in the LazyCam board.
Some pretty slick dudes there that can help.
Welcome again,
RC

I have a 8x12 lathe also (from harbor freight) that i promised myself once i get my mill up and running (i.e. i learn how to use it pretty good) im going to convert the lathe to cnc.

Im into building and overclocking computers, building super cold cooling units, programming in java(but not very good at this), golf(~ 9 index) and machining.

Hello all,

My name is Lee, I live in Yorkshire, England.

I do electrical installation for a living, though have done welding and telecomms rigging amongst other things.

I have a hobby workshop at home with a load of ebay finds, all manual machines 13x40 lathe, 42x12 Cinci Mill, a 10" shaper, cuddly toy,
bandsaw x2, welders, etc, etc.

I'm  thinking of converting a new asian Lathe to cnc, at the mo I don't know how all this stuff goes together but I'm gonna lurk and learn.

Lee.

Hi, my name is Richard and I've just purchased a CNC router from Marchantdice.

It's taken three weeks of my [spare] time to set the machine up, I've no experience of CNC and I didn't realise there would be such a big learning curve.  It's a shame that there's not a shortened version of Mach that allows you to drive the CNC without all the frilly bits!  I'd like to draw a few lines on the screen and have the cutter follow that path but I need to learn G-code and LazyCAM first.

But I'm getting there!
