Yesterday no gcode limit, today 50 line gcode limit
« on: April 29, 2017, 01:11:41 PM »
Hi, I'm having an issue where mach3 only posts a limit of 50 lines of coordinates after I transfer the file from LazyCam. The day before yesterday it worked fine with no gcode limit no matter how big the file was. Now today after I set my depth, scaling, etc in LazyCam I "post code" into Mach3 I only get 50 lines of code. I've tried this already with a small image (under 500lines of code) and a larger image (500+ lines). Please help anyone. Thanks in advance!!

There is a limit in Mach3 to the number of code lines and usualy you hear 500 lines.

BUT

I have found that depends on the gcode posted and sometimes is much less like the 50 you
mention. You need a license for some of the advanced features of LC else you wont get the
proper posting of lines.

The only answer which works is a license for Mach3, and as said, if using the advanced features
of the modules you need a LazyCam license also.
