« on: November 17, 2007, 04:58:15 PM »
Hi Guys
As I have posted before on this problem I don't know maybe I am the problem Attach are to file One is LC cam toolpath  JPG file all looks good in LC as you will see on the file if I post it to mach 3 I get those z axis moves that should not be there as you will see they show up in the Tool path JGP file
   Would Please let me someone know what I am doing wrong or if there is a problem in the software  Don't get me wrong I like the software and I appreciate the hard work that it had to take to get there

lcam will look at a move like this.

g00 z.200   as a rapid move - showing a broken line
g01 z.200   as a chain - showing a solid line

when you take a drawing with no z moves,then add z depth of cut with a feedrate then  generate g-code with lcam.
then import it back into lcam you will see the z travel as a chan.

Yes but how do I get rid of them ? A guy can do it manual but if you want to do a part in a hurry it is no fun
