Mach 3 hangs up at line 22
« on: March 08, 2017, 04:02:21 PM »
Hi
I'm new at this. I built a Gatton CNC and it machined Vextric's free Avalon sign perfectly. Now I have their paid for version of Cut 2D Pro and I made 2 small test signs and Mach 3 starts moving the router and hangs up on line 22 and just sits there.
I need help
thanks

G1 is for a linear move to point X and Z, and F is for the feed rate. I do not know why the feed rate is F01 instead of F1.
Try to increase this number, a little, without the "0" in front. Hands on STOP, just in case.

Thanks Philippe
My F0.1 was Z plunge. I changed it to F1, still slow but I cut a perfect 4" square w/ a 1" hole in center.
Now to learn why Cut 2 D made the file that way.
