4 th axis tool path problem
« on: November 14, 2017, 07:10:34 AM »
I am trying to get a rotating 4 th axis working.  I think I must be missing a setting in mach 3.  My v carve tool path looks correct in V carve but when I save it and load i into Mach 3  it does not match . >:(
Any Ideas what I am doing wrong?
Thanks,
Todd

There's a setting or two in Config > Toolpath that needs to be checked. That may be it.

Gerry,
I believe I have that all set correctly,  A is set for rotation and I rotate X around my Y axis.
thanks,
Todd
