Re: Circles troubles

How about posting an SVG and the output gcode?

Is it an absolute and incremental co-ordinates issue?

Re: Scanything setup and configuration questions

...... I don't know if Centroid have a facility for directly controlling the machine movement. UCCNC now has an API installed with the software that allows you to directly control machine movement without a licence but only with UC motion controllers. API is in c# or VB via .net (I believe..... Not...

No, the link works fine.... the problem is you cannot read the link unless you are a registered user on the CandCNC forum (screenshot below).

Re: torch not shutting off until it moves to home

We all do it + read too quick.

Looks like a problem with the machine to me, not responding to the M5's in the gcode.

Re: which software do I purchase

You can buy the licence at any time.... However, I'd suggest you download and install it now without a licence as it will output up to ~180 line of gcode which will allow you to test and try it out + learn how to use it. It gives you a chance to check that it meets your needs. note, I am biased as I...

Re: torch not shutting off until it moves to home

Does OnPenUP() look like this?

Code: Select all

function OnPenUp()
   if toolClass == "MarkerTool" then
      post.Text(" M09\n")
   else
      post.Text (" M05\n")
   end
   if (endDelay > 0) then
      post.Text (" G04 P")
      post.Number (endDelay,"0.###")
      post.Eol()
   end
end

Re: Is Sheetcam License and Mach3 License Together?

No they are separate licences and they come from different companies so may take different times to issue

Buyer beware I hope they are ligitimate and have your name associated with them

Re: Use Path Rules to Set Post Variable

Can you not just pass an M-code so your machine knows to use a different setting before arcs and disable it after small arcs

Re: Manage License

I did share mi SheetCam TNG license with a friend for "testing purposes". :roll: .... Why could your friend not just install sheetcam without a licence and test it with 180 lines of gcode ... Your friend could have contacted Les and asked for a testing temporary licence.... I'd tell you to buy anot...
