So I have my design ready to be cut. I can do all these parts one by one manually shifting the zero point. What would be the best workflow to get all the parts cut from one Gcode file?

Most of the operations do not really require 3D - except the two longest parts in the bottom, the rest should be doable as 2.5 D.

Could I e.g. load all the parts individually with their bottom left corner at 0,0 and then shift the MOPs' zero points? I could also save the STLs with their offsets directly. Or is there any other better way? There are two of each part, so I guess I could just copy the toolpaths with an offset?

I must admit I never use grid. Maybe except the very beginning of my work with CB. :)

David,
Thank you!  That does just what I needed, and right when I needed it!

Hello

Yes, but it do not display the length for a spline object, needs to be converted to polyline first.

the Gcode file that you see in CB is the same in Mach3, the M8 should appears.

that works nice for me.

Scripts and Plugins / Length of a curved line
« Last post by lloydsp on Yesterday at 20:13:06 »
Is there a script to measure the actual length of a curved line?

I have a 'special' rush-project that requires that I measure some curved lines, in order to make straight ones of the same total length.

Thanks, all!

Not sure to understand ; the M8 is not visible in the GCode display of Mach3 ?

Ive tried inputting M8 on a seperate  line and it shows up in cambam but not on Mach 3 screen. i am at the point of not knowing what to do next. Seems like i have exhausted all my possibilities.

I tried this code on Mach3, and it works without problem (G4 P10 because Dwell set in s instead ms in the general config)

M8 M3
G4 P10
M9 M5
M30
