Thread: Vcarve to Mach3
So, Going from autocad to vcarve is easy, I set my material size and that the origin is the bottom left of the material. but when I export it and load it up in Mach3, my machine coordinates change from zero to a strange number on all the axi. when I jog the machine, the numbers move a lot faster then the machine. as if the Steps per MM figure was out.
not really sure what's going on with it.
I'm not cutting on my machine at the moment, I just wanted to see it move on it's own.
Or better still post the code so we can check it out.
Also post your Mach XML it will be in the Mach folder under the same name as the profile you use when starting Mach. ~If you do this then I can load it into mach with the same settings as you and see whats going on.?
I was using the standard mach3 profile, made a new one and saved all the settings and it's working :)

Also, I have a cheap 1.5kw VFD i got from china, you know the ones.
I've heard you can hook them up straight to the breakout board without needing anything else apart from wires.
how is this done?
