HELP!! MACH3
« on: November 19, 2018, 02:08:19 AM »
Hi,

Im new here and im not sure if I am posting this question in the right forum page.  With regards to my problem, I don't know what happened but whenever I open a file that I would be engraving, the image would be away from the limit of the table of our machine. I am using a Precix 9000 router with mach 3 software. im attaching some pictures of the problem that I am encountering.  I do hope someone can help me :(

thats not a Mach3 Problem, it is a Problem of your GCode or of your workoffset .
seems that the Zero Point of your GCode is wrong.

post your GCode and we will have a look.
anything is possible, just try it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.

ok, the file you posted is not the one witch is shown in your screenshot from post #1.

it is a single letter 3, where all the coordinates are negative.

i am not sure in witch Units you working , Inch or metric ?

this letter 3 is ablout 18 mm or Inch wide, and 36 mm or Inch high, depends in witch Units you are working.

normaly you have the X0 Y0 of the workpiece in the lower left Corner, but you can also go with negative coordinates,
only depends on, where you physicaly Zero your work coordinates.

so it Looks like you have to work the on "handling" of your postprcessor, and get a Little bit more familar with
Programm origins, work Offsets and this stuff.

anything is possible, just try it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.
