confusion abounds -Turn -DXF import
« on: September 13, 2007, 09:34:04 PM »
I have been truing to figure out how to import a DXF file into Mach3 for turn, without much luck So I decided to use one of the lazyCAD samples, outer profile and low and behold it does the same thing! crop circles. I assume that the outer profile is a valid example for turn? using the File-Import-DXF from the menu in Mach3. I have tried absolute and incremental modes and they show no difference in the display.

Am I doing something wrong? is there a tutorial or FAQ that explains the requirements for creating a profile in DXF format? I have written a custom VB program that directly outputs G-code and it works fine, now that I have somewhat learned G-code basics. I would sure like to use a CAD program for creating profiles.

I think there is a bit more work that needs to be done in the turn section of LCam at this time... We have been working on Mach3 so much that there has been no time . We hope that this will be over soon so we can wrap up Lcam.

Thank you and sorry for your trouble
