This is my first attempt at creating multiple toolpaths with TCCADCAM. It may not be correct, so do feel free to edit for me.

your tool paths looked fine. How did it run? Or was this just a test?

Thanks for the feed back. yes it did run well. It was run on a home built router with MACH3 software. The only thing needed was the removal of G80 as MACH3 would not recognise that command.

I had same problem, but just edited the CNC-Setup --> Program--> "Program Begin"  to move the G80 command to a following new block line.

Yeah, I also completely removed the G80 command in my post processor.

While the default FANUC machine/controller is close to what MACH3 needs, I think including a fully optimized MACH3 machine definition with TCAM would be very helpful to new users.  Specially with the rapidly growing availability of CNC routers/machines/lathes controller by MACH3.

Confirm here. I think this has been asked for before. Being a newbie to CNC myself, it took a while to get my post processor working the way I want.
