project not inside my working Envelope.
« on: May 28, 2018, 08:02:06 PM »
Hello,
I have drawn up two projects and Mach4 will not put either of them inside my work envelope. I made them in Fusion 360. I have the code and exported the f3d file-I just don't know how to post them on the form.
I home the machine then move to the stock work peace-then zero out the work coordinates. The part shows up in mach but its off the working table. I was wonder if it was a setting in mach 4 or something in fusion 360. By the way Im a new at this.
Thanks Anthony.

Hi,
I suspect when you drafted your part in Fusion 360 you had the origin displaced from the part.
Mach is only trying to do what you tell it to do and in this instance I think your code is wrong.

If you wish to attach the file or part of it use the 'Additional Options....' at the lower left of the
text input pane when composing a post. Note that each file you post must have a unique name.
If you use 'myGcode.txt'  you will not be able to use that name again...even weeks down the track.

Thanks for the reply. I did draw on an organ. Does it matter which organ?

Hi,
whats the purpose of this line:
Quote
G59 P55
Thats applying a work offset, why P55, what special about that?. More importantly what data
is in that offset?

I told it WCS G54 I did see the a P55 in the G code. I went into Fusion to make sure it was on g54 but its not changing.
Under set up-Post process-WSC Offset I have 54
