Input, is not output!
« on: August 29, 2014, 09:13:52 AM »
Greetings fellow members,

New to the cnc hobby. I have built a home router controlled by Mach3 and coupled with a "Smoothstepper". Build and setup went well, but when I used the Mach3 writing wizard as gcode testing, I have a jumbled mesh. The characters generate as disjointed elements. Certainly beyond my meager knowledge on cncs. Sure would be grateful if someone had compassion and helped me out, or would point me in a direction of resolution. The picture attached is the results of an attempt to generate a simple capital "O" in Bauhaus font from the Mach3 writing wizard. Weird huh? Closer to a crop circle than an "O"! Thanks in advance to any and all that contribute to lowering my blood pressure. gc2012@gmail.com

Hi GC,

In Config. / Gereral Config. change your IJ Mode.

Ideally you generated Gcode should include (at the beginning of the file) the G90.1 if your circles have been drawn in Absolute Mode or G91.1 if they have been drawn in Incremental Mode.  ;)
