Can some one help me with the following NC program?
I first drew it in Millwrite 2000 sent to floppy then opened in Mach2 I am able to engrave it but it is inverted starts on the left –Y cuts the text to the right + Y with the top of text facing the + x direction. It used to start on the y + side and cut towards the –Y side with the top of text towards the – x direction? The second thing it is doing is I set the text height to .500” tall it engraves at .130” tall. So I made a new file set the text height to .750” and then it cut only about .200” tall? It is probably something very easy.
Thanks Clint

I figured it out I had my steps per unit set to 2000 in Mach2 then I wound up setting it to 8000 to get it to engrave the same size as what was drawn. Now I need to figure out why it engraves its way to the begining of the text. then it raises up from cutting each letter.
Thanks Clint
