DXF imports
« on: March 29, 2006, 02:27:26 PM »
Being new to this game I have downloaded Mach3 turn & on drawing a spindle on autocad & saving in DXF,importing to mach3 & then generating G-code the spindle appears to have no thickness.On the drawing it is approx19mm dia, but on the mach3 screen it seems to be around the centre line, is there a simple offset I can add to the g-code  or am I just talking silly.
thanks Gary.

The lathe import DXF in mach 3 sucks at best... Lcam will be coming out with lathe stuff soon.

Fixing problems one post at a time ;)
