Thread: Mach3

  1. #1
    Does anyone know if there is a Function on mach3 that enables you to Preview the size the job you are working on will take up on the work piece.

    Does anyone know how I set mach3 to scan a part with a digital scanner.

    Many Thanks in Advance

    If you go on the 'Tool Path' tab (Alt-4) you can see extent of the tool-path under program limits.

    You should be able to just connect the probe to one of the inputs on your breakout board and Mach 3 will read it...
