Hi everyone
Just started on this journey of trying to find a reasonably priced CAM product. Am evaluating the CAM plugin but find there is no preset configuration for Mach3 Mill!! ???. So my question is how to configure
the CAM plugin to generate g-code compatible with Mach3 Mill ?


Any help gratefully received

Regards
Mike

In the "CNC System" you can choose to use the Fanuc controller. That is what I started with & tweaked it a bit. Here is my Mach3 Mill configuration file. Just unzip the file into you "Cam/CodeSystems" directory. (the default for TC18 - C:\Program Files\IMSIDesign\TCWP18\CAM) the default for v15 should be similar.
