Hello to all
I live in South Africa just outside JHB.
Very new to Mach3 and cnc, OK with manual milling and turning. I have a cnc Sherline mill so I'm hoping to learn as I go along.  It will mainly be used as a hobby - making small models.
It's seems I'm already stuck! The Write Wizard produces the I J (offsets) in "absolute" mode I would like them to be in "Incremental" mode, is there any way to do this.

Hi Dave,

I do not think this is possible in write.

Why do you need incremental I&J?

Without engineers the world stops

Hello Graham
The Sherline CBC mill came with ENC (Linux) and that uses incremental I&J. It might be possible to change ENC to absolute. I'm still very new at this so stumbling in the dark a bit.
Thank you for your reply, at least I know it's not ME!
Best regards from South Africa

Hi Graham
Sorry CBC should be CNC and
ENC should be EMC
I didn't use the spell check correctly.
