Author Topic: After re-installing Mach3 proven programs are not running properly  (Read 331 times)

  Long story short the pc I was using to run my machine died. I reinstalled Mach3 on to my new pc. Reset my config. inputs and outputs, motor tuning spec and so on. When zeroing out the machine all axis home in the proper directions. When keyboard jogging left arrow goes left, right goes right, up goes up, down goes down just as before. When I load a program however it seems to be reading the code differently.Now keep in mind these are proven programs that have ran on this machine within the last 2 weeks. When looking at the toolpath I see a bunch of purple circles. I can also see the original shape to be cut (in blue lines) but there are so many circles. I just don't get it. it seems to be G3 lines mainly but not all G3 lines. I am at a total loss at this point as to what can be causing this. I'm sure somehow it's operator error but right now I'm not sure what to think. Has anyone had an issue like this before?
  Thanks for reading. Even bigger thanks if you can help.  ;D

Ah, those blasted "crop circles".
Somewhere along the way you evidently changed the IJ mode.
You can set it in the Gen. Config.
Search Crop Circles for more.

YES! Crop circles everywhere! Your remedy sounds logical but I can't locate anything in any of the config options that reference an IJ mode. Could you be a little more specific?

So you're saying G92.1 I'm hoping? I'll try that.
