Hi, Andrew

The only way I can seem to duplicate this is with the Scale setting  to -1.0 on the Y axis on Program Run screen and a Regen of Tool-path.

Still thinking on this.

Thanks, Chip

Andrew - are the setups for your machines(s) the same on both computers.

i.e. the active highs and the active lows.  To regenerate the cut pattern, Mach 3 literally runs through the  program quickly and writes the picture to the screen as per the signals it puts out to the motors - so if you don't have both set up identically they will appear differently.

I had this problem - because I write most of my programs on this computer - in my office - and then take what I need through to the workshop.  Particularly on mill, the picture appeared correct as I wrote it on this computer - in the workshop the machine promptly cut in reverse.

This is particularly apparent if you move the head of your miller, or move the table - the table has to move in the opposite direction to keep the cut moving as planned.

Jim.
Not me driving the engine - I'm better looking.

as you you can see from the screen shot the drawring is upside down
the problem is with the computer that I do the drawring on not the one running the machine

Hi, Andrew

Post your Mach3Mill.XML file Make a copy of it and rename the copy to a different name, It's located In c:\Mach3\ folder.

Try loading the "Plasma" Session Profile, Is it the same ?

May be some wearied graphic problem in your laptop, Try screen Driver update in Windows, Control Panel.

Thanks, Chip

Sounds like you have your soft limits set wrong.
Is this a mill?
Where are your home switches in relation to your axis travel?
