    HI has anyone come across this problem with Mach3 I did a design in aspire and set my machine up but found it carved the image twice the second on off set by approx 30mm I have attached an image to show what I mean so I would ask it to draw 1 circle but I get what is shown on the attachment, thanks guys.

    Does the Mach3 toolpath screen show two circles? Does the Aspire preview?

    Can you post the g-code?

    Check which post processor you are asking Aspire to use to save toolpath, try Gcode (mm) (*.tap) should work on most machines.

    Thanks for the response, I don't have the gcode but next time I will save it the image looks correct in both aspire and on the mach 3 display.

    Hi Guys managed to get 5 mins down the shed, haven't changed the settings or file format saved as mach3 format. Asked it to do a pocket cut on a piece of wood cut size 70mm x 70mm found on third pass it changed the start point 15mm to the right it does this on text as well. Gcode below (sorry couldnt find another way to post it :) ) I'm using aspire 8.5 and Mach 3 cheers Thanks again

    Well the code looks good to me every time the Z drops down the X and Y start at the same place.

    I would suggest you have a mechanical problem or you are missing steps. pulley loose etc. binding up!!

    It might be better to post the text as a file attachment to save space.

    Hi Clive no binding bud just tried saving as a Gcode file (recommended by Phil) instead of Mach 3 have a completely different issue so I'm thinking compatibility issue with the hardware software think I will email Rhonmac.Click image for larger version.

  9. Did the machine come with a DSP or Mach3?, check if the Rhonmac machine needs it's own post processor.
