Mashcam has several machines that it can provide Gcode for. When I save to gcode which machine should I use? I’ve tried a few and the Maslow doesn’t read the code correctly. I have yet to make my first cut. I’ve been struggling with the CAD/CAM software trying to find something that works. Mashcam seems to be workable but I can’t find a CAD program that I can use. built the Maslow machine and got it calibrated June of 2018
Check if you can find Grbl, LinuxCNC or Mach3.
They all should work.
Kind regards, Gero
What version of Meshcam are you using on what platform? Standard or Pro?
I’m running Meashcam Ver 6 Std. on Win 10 machine
I’ve tried Mach3 and it makes the Z axis work inverse to what it should.
It moves X and Y correctly but the end mill is way above the plane of the material to be cut. I’ve tried Carbide also with same results.
where did you define Z=0 to be? you need to tell meashcam that Z=0 is the top of
the material, not the bottom.
Me ash am v6 on win 10 pc
Meshcam 6 has 2 ways to run through it - Meshcam 7 is a free upgrade and is mostly wizard based. 6 & 7 can coexist on the same system.
Thanks for the info I’ll look into getting meshcam ver 7.
