Sheetcam post not giving me valid code?
« on: December 16, 2016, 01:55:31 PM »
hey all ive been running cut2d/sheetcam/mach3 for 3 years now flawlessly, and now sheetcam is giving me weird codes when i check them in notepad. This is causing Mach3 to just run through the whole code without moving at all. any ideas? thanks.

This is the coding that im pulling out of notepad.

N0010 (Filename: circle.tap)
N0020 (Post processor: Mach3 plasma.scpost)
N0030 (Date: 16/12/2016)
N0040 G20 (Units: Inches)
N0050 G53 G90 G91.1 G40
N0060 F1
N0070 S500
N0080 (Part: circle)
N0090 M05 M30

You are missing step in sheet cam.

You need to select the geometry or something first.
If you just hit post process that is what you will get.

We never have the time or money to do it right the first time, but we somehow manage to do it twice and then spend the money to get it right.

I am not a sheetcam user but let me see if I can explain this.
1. Import drawing.
2. Select drawing options in the pop-up window.
3. Select an operation
4. Make sure that you select the layer that the geometry is on.
5. Fill in all the little check boxes on all the operation tabs.
6. Run post processor and look at the nice G-code.

HTH
