Suggestion for Mill Wizard
« on: May 11, 2014, 05:38:16 AM »
I Like to use mill wizard where possible

I think a mirror function in engrave would be good.
I am deep engraving the rear of acrylic to led light from underneath for a nice LED sign.
But need mirror in engrave please.

Thanks in advance graemecns

Hi graemecns,

If you change the X axis Scale DRO from +1.0000 to -1.0000 that will do it (if you have chosen bottom left for the origin X zero, Y zero that will change to bottom right but if you have chosen the centre of the work as the origin then there is no problem).

Hope this helps.

thank you for your reply
I had also contacted Brett at customer support but had trouble understanding his initial reply.
He then sent me some screen shots I now understand.
Make Gcode in Mill wizard then open in Mach3.
then change the DRO on X axis scale to neg -  .
Will engrave Mirror.

I will look at the possibility of adding a mirror function to the wizard, it sounds useful. I suppose both mirror in X and Y would be useful?

hi Ron

the work around is ok if I the complete job can be reversed
But the mirror would be good could then see finished job in mill wizard as it would look
eg.engraved then cut .

Thanks
