Great work Greg. Looking really good.
I would have thought that #13 was up for grabs first. 14 is my favourite number and I was hoping for that one, oh well should have started building or maybe I'll just bribe Gerald to reserve it for me

Jayson.

EDIT***

I see 13 is taken... Maybe Greg could have 12

It Cuts

Tried running the roadrunner included with Mach.

This is what I came up with. It looks like part of the drawing is missing.

I still have to figure out how to use Mach and decide on a cad/cam program

Just waiting on my logos.

Nearly there Greg!

The free version of Mach3 limits the number of steps - I wonder if that is why your file stopped running?

I'm sure that's it. There is code in the display after the line that it stops on.

Time to purchase a license.

Roadrunner is over 4000 lines, free Mach3 stops at 1000 lines.

Congratulations. I ran a lot of those Road Runners cuttings in the air. Air CNC - it saves wood and you don't need a bit.

I finally purchased my copy of Mach 3.

That solved the problem of the incomplete roadrunner.

Kobus, you just reminded me that I still have to figure on the dust collection system.

My machine is covered with sheets and other projects I have going on right now but I was able to get my logos attached. I'll take some pics later this week of the whole machine.

Greg M,

Congratulations on # 15. Yea.

Doesn't matter how long it took, you did it. Cutting the Road Runner is nice but wait until you cut some thing more complicated. You will have so much fun watching the machine do its thing.

Hello everyone. I had a computer crash and I lost all my Mach3 information. My backup files are missing as well.
I can't seem to find the thread on setting up Mach. Can anybody help?

Well, got everything figured out.

Hard drive was bad.
Memory was bad.
Parallel port card was bad.

Mach re-loaded and up and running.

That's great news!

Not bad for a 10 year old machine.
