objects not in the correct size
« on: November 01, 2013, 05:34:44 PM »
hi there,

i am new to this CNC stuff and i have question

in the detail of my machine  it say that the machine can engrave material in size of 275mm by 385mm ok so i open my coral draw program and make a new document by this size (275mm X 385mm ) which approximately 15inch by 10inch i draw in big letters

My
First
CNC (3 lines)

i save it in dxf (from the coral draw)  and convert it to g code (i use cut2d program)  when i am loading it to the mach3 i can see only the FI (front the FIRST) and the CN (from the CNC ) how can i set the engraving space to be larger so i can see all my drawing like it need to be ? is it the DPI from the coral draw? setting in mach3 please HELP me :) thank you

Demo mode is limited to 500 lines of g code. Is this your problem?

Yes it will come to you by email and you just save it to your Mach3 folder and when you open Mach you will be licensed.
I would recommend you also keep a backup of the licence in a safe place, although if you do lose it Scott will, I am sure, happily provide you with a duplicate as long as you can provide your info you gave whilst purchasing.
