I have a 1991 Acroloc milling machine with a Dynapath Delta 20 controller. I am using Bobcad v23. When engraving on a flat plane it works ok, but when I use my 4th axis it mirror images the text. I have been working with Bobcad tech support for two months and they do not seem to be able to fix it. I do not think they are working this post processor very hard or they do not know what they are doing because they keep putting me off (not calling back just plain ignoring my problem). Can anyone help me with stopping it from mirror imaging on the 4th axis?
I think your refering to the Predator Backplot. The code cuts properly on the machine.
Is this not the case for you???
It is on the machine that it mirrows. I am going to try to mirrow it before I post it. Thanks for your input. dc123
That is odd. The backplot does mirror everything, though for us, it cuts correctly at the machine. What happens if you use just the built in Verify?
If you want to post a sample file and your post processor here, I'll look at it with you. If your post is some odd conversational post, I may not be much help, but there may be others here too.
Zip the 2 files to be able to attatch them in the forum. Select both files, right clcik and choose "send to-Compressed zip folder".
You may also want to check the machine setting that you have set for BobCad. Look at Current settings in BobCad to determine the machine, then launch this program here:
ANd review these settings:
