Works OK for me.

That's not drilling, it's pocketingJohn S -
Yep you are completely correct on that one. CamBam will pocket a "drill" hole where the end mil is smaller in diameter then the required hole and as you can see it does it in a spiral pattern. Works rather well on the code I use and will drill when the endmill is the same diameter as the hole. Rather interesting code structure on that part. As to why it is stopping I don't know as ran fine for me as well. Could be that the OP is getting a false trigger that is causing the problem. Well have fun folks.
it also seems there is some of my project missing,when i load the gcode, the peice that is displayed has the outer ring missing
is this normal
You say it stops after (Drill1).
And that you are missing part of your project.
That would hint that you are using Mach3 in demo mode (500 line limit)."If first you don't succeed, redefine success"
so how do i get out of demo mode... i got this copy with my drivers....
You will need to purchase a Mach3 license: http://www.machsupport.com/purchase.php"If first you don't succeed, redefine success"
