Question about G-Code

Hello all, I downloaded a program called DMap2gcode to see about trying 3D carving. After generating a grayscale image to work with, I looked at the generated gcode to see what it produced. What I saw puzzled me: G17 G90 G64 P0.001 M3 S3000 G21 G0 Z6.3500 F381.0000 F25.0000 G0 X100.0000 Y100.0000 F3...

Re: Can't engrave text!

Thanks for the update. I downloaded version 352 and tried the simulation again, with unchanged results. My expectations were that the end result would match the pocket. I deliberately made it quite shallow so that the significant taper in the tool profile would (hopefully) result in a very small all...

Re: Can't engrave text!

I'm sorry, but it's not at all accurate. Below is the result of running the simulation (as you can see, much is missing) :

A couple of newbie questions about tool cutting patterns

Hi all, I have a couple of questions about the cutting patterns available. Please be patient :) 1) Is there a guide suggesting the usage of the various patterns available; i.e. "use pattern xx when you want yy result"? 2) When I cut a pocket using the offset pattern, after each cut the mill was rais...

Re: A newbie question about vertical feeds

Thank you! That did what I expected, so I'll continue setting cuts up that way. I also switched to the ZigZagOffset pattern to clean up the perimeter. I'm a little puzzled about why my earlier approach yielded odd cutting depths, but I won't lose any sleep over the unexplained :) Again, thanks - Frank
