    Hi and welcome to the forum. You will need to give more info as to what the problems are. Some pics of the machine and control box would help and what type of controller. ie is it controlled via usb or pp port etc.

    "circulations and scribble" doesn't really mean anything!!

    ok, this is common with mach3 it's the I/J mode that is wrong. Go to Config/General config and swap the I/J mode. See pic

    Windows allows a Screen Shot to be taken ([Ctrl]-[prt sc]) and stored in the Clipboard for pasting into Paint or the image package of your choice, avoiding the blur associated with poor photography.
    Windows Photo Viewer allows easy rotation of photos that are shot in an orientation other than that ideal for viewing.
    You think that's too expensive? You're not a Model Engineer are you? :D
