Need Mach 3 help please
« on: July 12, 2015, 04:03:01 PM »
I have lost the hard drive on my Mach3 CNC machine. OK, so I have purchased a new (used Win 7 32 bit with parallel port) computer, nad have gone through the config process. It's mostly back to normal.

I need to import my tool table from my backup, but it seems just copying the tools.dat into the Mach folder isn't enough. After copying the too table is stil empty. Can anyone help with this please?

needs to go into your machine specific macro folder.
ie c:\mach3\macro\{your profile name}\tools.dat
