messed up file
« on: July 14, 2016, 11:15:48 PM »
Hello Everyone,
I am pretty new to mach3 and perhaps I am doing something wrong in it, but I am trying to load a tap file generated from dxf by cambam. when I do so and file is fairly simple it appears just fine in mach3. however more complicated file is all messed up and I see in the mach3 display bunch of circles  covering the lines of that file, which supposed to be cut.
can anyone tell me please why is that? and how do I fix it?
I can provide dxf and tap files here if needed.
 thanks a lot in advance.

Ahh, the dreaded crop circles...

Config. / General Config.  change the IJ Mode (approx. centre of page).

My pleasure sir.

You should perhaps consider adding the G90.1 or G91.1 (as appropriate) to the start of your Gcode programs so that Mach3 doesn't get confused again in the future.
