Mach 3 repeating moves
« on: April 12, 2015, 08:53:44 AM »
So I'm using artcam express to generate G code for my shapeoko drawing CNC but it repeats very XYZ move.  Can someone tell me what is causing this?  It's taking twice as long to complete the drawing.

Sounds like an ArtCAM Express issue.

But I don't see any duplicate G code

Well after I went back and looked Artcam did generate duplicate code.  So it is an Artcam issue apparently.  So I needed figure out why.

I expect it is your tool stepdown in the toolpath. You havent set it to the depth to do in one pass
