Does anyone know that if you set your own cutting order for the toolpath in DeskCNC cam mode and then save as DXF, does the cutting order stay the same once its loaded into Mach3 as a DXF?
And also, can i only save my work as a DXF from the cam mode? Can i generate gcode from the work on the grid? I looked in the help file and can't figure it out. If I go to the Edit CNC mode it says no file is loaded. If I load a DXF it goes to the Cam mode. I'm not running the machine with DeskCNC, just setting the toolpaths for it and need to then get it to Mach3.
I emailed them but no replies all day. They must have taken the day off cause they emailed back each time yesterday.
Okay but under File the menu option called SaveToolpaths CNC is not enabled. The only save option available is Save Geometry DXF. I would like to save it as an NC file to try cutting before I buy this.
