Mach IV Tool Offset
« on: May 02, 2006, 07:24:59 PM »
I have my GREX/Mach IV system up and running.  Great stuff!    It appears that the start and end points of a line are wrong when using part offset and/or scaling.  Has anyone else seen this?

I was referinng to G41 and G42.  Due to my failure to read the tutorial, I was not aware that tool offsets are such a problem.  I was using the Mach 3 HPGL import.  I have since learned how to make Lazycam work.  It is actually quite easy once you find the layer control button.  The leadins make it all work much better.  I will post my remaing concerns in the general section. Thanks
