Nested Comments
« on: March 17, 2008, 07:07:06 AM »
Is there a way to get Mach3 to work with Nested Comments in a g-code file? I have found a great little program for creating gears and it lists nested comments in the .nc file that it creates. Mach3 sees these comments as errors. Therefore I have to spend a considerable amount of time deleting these comments. I've enclosed an attachment of an 8 tooth clock pinion as an example.

I believe Mach needs ( and ) around a comment instead of a * .

It may possibly be changed in the Post Processor or choose another PP ?  Not sure though.

The program in question provides no option to change or modify the post processor. I was hoping that there was an option in Mach3 to allow nested comments.

Hi, Ronald4418

Use the find & replace feature in Notepad edit in mach3.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, RC

Now if we could just (only) keep it all sorted.

The gear program has some further things/issues to sort out, I think.

Thanks, Chip

Chip,
Yes, I noticed that. Looks like several "spring" cuts.
