3D Aspire to Mach3.....
« on: September 08, 2015, 04:06:04 AM »
Hi,

When I make a 3D text with Aspire 4.0 to Mach3, it looks okay on Aspire but when i start it on Mach3 and it should start at the top off the wood (cutting at 1mm) but it cuts straith in to the wood about 10 - 20mm Why??

Thanks!!

Thomas

If you post the first 20 lines of your G-Code I (and I'm sure others too) will see if I can see anything.

Do you have all the settings correct in the material set up in Aspire?
Where is the Z zero set and where did you zero it on the job?
After zeroing the axis, did you recalculate the toolpath in Mach?
Could be heaps of other causes.

Make sure the Z is zeroed to the top of the work surface. Aspire allows Z zero to be either the top or bottom (and any place in between) of the material.  Also check the Aspire "preview all tool paths"...  if you slow down the slide show rate you can see how the tool is cutting.

The Z zero may not be zeroed with the tool in mach as well... Could be allot of things. If you post your Aspire file I can check the settings.

Could it be that your Z axis direction is configured incorrectly ??

From your Gcode line N140 raises the Z axis 25.4mm is the tool cutting into the work at this move ??

Hi,

Download it from here

And now when I was tring the CNC so I have everything in MM, and it should cut 1mm but it cuts about 3,4mm deep hole at once... Is it confuse with MM and Inch?
